Chomping At Bits: Gators Invited To USA Basketball Camp, Odds On Florida Arrests

Chomping At Bits may have been an overcommitment. Yes, there is a softball post coming.

Young, Wilbekin get USA Basketball invites: Florida basketball's Patric Young and Scottie Wilbekin, both rising sophomores, have been invited to USA Basketball's U19 team's camp, but it's a third Gator that won't be going who is the real news peg here. Incoming freshman Bradley Beal, who lead the USA Basketball U17 team to a gold medal in the 2010 FIBA World Championships, declined an invitation to the camp and what would likely have been a guaranteed spot on the team. Not to worry: A Florida spokesperson says Beal's withdrawal isn't injury-related, and Beal says he's missing the camp to get acclimated in Gainesville. (I would assume, then, that Beal is taking Summer B classes.)

More on betting on Gators arrests: Yeah, lamentably, there are apparently odds available on Florida arrests in 2011. (Presumably, this is just for football.) But BetUS, the oddsmaker offering the proposition, has previously taken bets on whether the world would end on June 6, 2006 and whether global warming will swamp islands. So. Yeah. Publicity stunts are fun!
