In today's issue, Chomping at Bits takes a look at Gators basketball, the retirement of a defensive lineman, and ESPN's grading of the Florida offense.
Final Four or bust: This is all true, but yeah, they aren't making the Final Four. You can go ahead and say you heard it here first. (Andy Katz, ESPN)
Nick Alajajian's career is over: Even though it seems like he has been here for years upon years (he really has), he probably could have gotten another year considering his knee cap fell apart in August but he decided to just call it a career. It's sad, because he was a heck of a talent at times. (Mike Capshaw, Gator Country)
Grading the offense: This is one of the best breakdowns of the offense I've seen in a while. Surprisingly, it comes from ESPN, which as you know is never really great in analysis. They've always done better with news than anything else. (Michael DiRocco, GatorNation | ESPN)
Gators basketball begins SEC play: Against Georgia. And this is when college basketball begins to matter. (Chris Harry, GatorZone)
New York Times piece: Yeah, right. Y'all have a great day.
