Chomping at Bits: Gators have "enormous" national appeal

Chris Trotman

Television ratings are in and the results are great for the Florida Gators.

National appeal: The four biggest SEC teams when it comes to television ratings are Florida, Georgia, LSU and Alabama. Also, aside from the SEC Championship Game being the most watched college football game of the year, the Florida-Florida State game was very highly watched. Oh, and nobody is watching Missouri. Shocking. (Jon Solomon, al.com)

National appeal II: The Gators played to more people than nearly every other team in the country this past season. Their games, even against chump competition, outdrew many other marquee match-ups. (Scott Carter, GatorZone)

Antonio Morrison, big role: Is it a bad thing to say that I'm as comfortable with Morrison at this point in his career (you know, freshman) than I was with Channing Crowder, Brandon Spikes and even James Bates? (Hays Carlyon, The Florida Times-Union)

Why did Spurrier fail in the NFL?: As the biggest Washington Redskins fan you'll ever meet, I can tell you exactly why Spurrier failed in the NFL. He just didn't care. And no, I didn't read this article, but I'd bet my entire bank account that's the reason or at least given as part of the reason. (Chris Low, SEC Blog/ESPN)
