Chomping at Bits: Why Jabari Parker picked Duke

Easiest "PULL MY FINGER!" joke opportunity ever. - USA TODAY Sports

Someday, Florida will have a coach with the pull Mike Krzyzewski has. It would help if Coach K retired so that Florida could land the Jabari Parkers of the world, though.

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.

Why Jabari Parker picked Duke: Duke was the best answer to the questions Parker asked himself about where he wanted to go to school. And I respect that immensely. But calling Coach K the next best thing to John Wooden is funny, mostly. (Jeff Benedict, SI.com)

Can Parker avoid the Chicago cloud? I say yes. (Ricky O'Donnell, SB Nation Chicago)

Patric Young's massive Wednesday throwdown in GIF form: Respect, Big Pat? Soon come. (Adam Silverstein, Only Gators)

Percy Harvin's Minnesota future up in the air: If your favorite NFL team doesn't want to trade for Percy Harvin, your favorite NFL team is probably run by idiots. (Note: This covers the Vikings, too, because they drafted Christian Ponder. In the first round.) (Tom Pelissero, 1500 ESPN)

How Sunday Night Football got to be great: It's by far my favorite part of the weekend in the fall save for Gators games. (John Koblin, Deadspin)

Andrew Wiggins is awesome: And terrifying, because we're seeing him at least once next year. (Home Team Hoops)

Gorgeous story design, redefined: So who cares that it's wrapped around a rather meh story? (John Branch, The New York Times)
