Chomping At Bits: Florida Gators Get Ready To Host The Kentucky Wildcats

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, subject line CAB.

On a personal note: I probably won't be around this weekend as much, as I assist with the cleanup of my house, friends houses, and other things related to that. For those wondering, yes, the owner of the Honda Accord that ended up on the side of the house has been identified.

As of now, the humming bird feeder has not been located. But I'm doing my best to locate it. I will not give up until it is found. Hopefully the Cleveland Indians sticker that is on it will help with that. How many Indians stickers can there possibly be in the East Tennessee (possibly North Carolina) area?

Yes, I went with the Indians instead of the Gators or Redskins (and Celtics) because of Chief Wahoo, who aside from being the best logo in professional sports, is red.

And no, I'm not going to blame the President like some have done in a tragedy that occurred in the past. I'm fairly certain you know what I'm talking about.

Gators to host first No. 1: When the Kentucky Wildcats tipoff against the Gators on Sunday, it will be the first time that the Gators have ever hosted the No. 1 team at the O'Connell Center. Let's make sure that Kentucky leaves unhappy. (Kevin Brockway, The Gainesville Sun)

Erving Walker ready: He's ready for his final home game. He also says he isn't going to get emotional (read: cry) about it. Looking back on things, he's had a very nice career stat wise. One of those players that just kind of creeps up on you I guess. (Mark Long, Florida Today)

Jeff Dillman a perfect fit: I don't really see how Dillman vacuuming ties into it, because I've seen many different people of various wealth's doing it, but it's a nice article nonetheless. (Rachel George, Orlando Sentinel)

SEC scheduling options: The author makes the argument that the league should go to a nine-game schedule but thinks they will ultimately stay at eight. He also thinks that whoever wants to keep their rivalries (Alabama-Tennessee, Auburn-Georgia) will have the freedom to do so. (Jerry Hinnen, Eye On College Football/CBS Sports)

Brad Wilkerson in Hall of Fame: Wilkerson becomes the first Gators baseball player to get inducted into the College Baseball Hall of Fame. H/T Gatorbuc15. (Adam Silverstein, Only Gators)

Gators beat Canes: For the 9th time in a row, the Gators have defeated the Hurricanes on the diamond. They racked up 15 hits in the 8-5 victory. (Susan Miller-Degman, The Miami Herald)
