Chomping at Bits: Billy Donovan downplays Florida basketball attendance

USA TODAY Sports

Florida draws smaller crowds to basketball games than most top-10 programs. But Billy Donovan isn't worried.

Chomping at Bits comes stocked with the best Florida Gators links and news we can find. Got a link we should check out? Email us at AlligatorArmy@gmail.com, subject line CAB.

Billy Donovan unworried about attendance: As he should be. But y'all should go to the game tonight if you're in Gainesville. (Kevin Brockway, Hoops Scoop | Gainesville Sun)

John Lucas, mentor extraordinaire: My favorite part of this story is that Mike Davis (the same one who led Indiana to a national title game) thinks an old coach cussing his son out is not only a good thing, but necessary. That's a Bobby Knight disciple for you! (Jason King, ESPN)

The story of Fire Joe Morgan: FJM: The blog every sports blogger kind of wishes they had written. (Rob Trump, The Classical)

2012's best sportswriting: Lots of good links here. (Quickish)

Some of the year's best songs: I don't agree with a lot of this list. But it's a good list. (Pitchfork)

Florida commit Chris Walker still better than other high school players: It's getting ridiculous, though. (Hoopmixtape)
