Chomping At Bits: Florida Gators Fail To Clinch No. 2 Seed Against Vanderbilt

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.

Gators lose No. 2 seed, still have first-round bye: In order for the Gators to finish second in the SEC, they have to beat Kentucky on Sunday. Because, you know, the SEC got rid of divisions in basketball. The Gators can finish no worse than fourth, no better than second. (Associated Press, The Tampa Tribune)

Channing Crowder is No. 78: Was Crowder really the 78th best player to ever play for the Miami Dolphins? I'm not a Dolphins fan by any means, but I do find this hard to believe. (Kevin Kraczkowski, SB Nation Tampa Bay/ SB Nation)

Gators No. 1 in Batting Around: We all know that as good as the Gators have been in baseball the past two years, there has been a team who has been better. Well, at this moment, they're undefeated and they lead the league in ERA. (The Feathered Warrior, Garnet And Black Attack)

Gators return 60 percent of touchdowns: The Gators return 60 percent of their touchdowns from last season. That ranks tenth in the new 14-team SEC. (Chris Low, SEC Blog/ESPN)

Plus-one system designed to stop SEC?: Unless a playoff system (I don't care what type) involves conference champions only, I'm not interested. You have to love the Big 10 commission though. Could anyone else arrive later to a party? (John Pennington, MrSEC)
