Florida's Omarius Hines is confident about Florida's chances against Louisville in New Orleans.

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.

"I just know we're going to win": Omarius Hines is one of the older, smarter, more mature Gators we have, but he also posted multiple pictures to Instagram captioned with "casino." I think he's right about Florida winning, though I don't know if I agree with calling that a guarantee, much less a prediction of a blowout. (Edgar Thompson, Swamp Things | Orlando Sentinel)

Mike Gillislee is locked in: He has been all year. I'm gonna miss the hell out of him. (Scott Carter, Carter's Corner | GatorZone)

12 biggest off-the-field Gators stories of 2012: Adam and I swapped ideas for that first category, and it's a good list, but, c'mon: Tebow's No. 1 and Lochte's No. 2. Beating Georgetown for a half on a boat is third. (Adam Silverstein, Only Gators)

Fun facts about Florida's 2012: It's been almost 10,000 days since Kentucky beat Florida in football, which is staggering. (Paul Sjoberg, Our Two Bits)

Finding beauty in the Russell Athletic Bowl: Devil's advocate: This column was written because SI might as well send a local to a bowl game, and fits the ethos of make-work stuff that bowl games otherwise do. (Andy Staples, SI.com)

Andy Reid's twilight: This is a superb "column," mostly because it's not a column. (Michael Rosenberg, SI.com)

A journalist relinquishes his Hall of Fame vote: Thought this was an interesting look into someone wondering what qualifies someone to judge greatness. (T.J. Quinn, ESPN)

LSU should secede from SEC: This isn't a parody; it's just stupid. (Scott Rabalais, The (Baton Rouge) Advocate)

Lunch with a libertarian economist: Some members of our readership may enjoy this more than others. (John McDermott, FT.com)

A brief note: CAB will be on hiatus from now until Friday while I'm in New Orleans (no, there's no way I'm trading being out at night in New Orleans for a morning link post), but it'll be back on Friday and daily in 2013 once it comes back. I promise. We'll find a way.
