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, or find us on Twitter at @AlligatorArmy or on Facebook at

Tyler Murphy stays cool: Staying collected and not forcing throws unless needed is huge and that's what we've been looking for in a quarterback since Will Muschamp arrived in Gainesville. Have we finally found our guy? (Edward Aschoff, SEC Blog/ESPN)

A 209.4 quarterback rating: Murphy's quarterback rating was the highest rating for a Gators quarterback since Tim Tebow's final game. (Edgar Thompson, Orlando Sentinel)

Solomon Patton is what the Gators need: After a career day against Arkansas, Patton continues to get praise. (Camille Woodhouse, iSportsTimes)

Kelvin Taylor getting playing time: There are no plans to redshirt him at this point, so that means carries right? (Robbie Andreu, The Gainesville Sun)

Florida is a familiar face: This is a great article. It's one of the better things I've read on any SB Nation site (not counting ours). We are who LSU is or who they used to be according to a certain LSU fan. Great stuff. (Poseur, And The Valley Shook)

Bitter memories at LSU: Instead of focusing on last year's physical beatdown of the Tigers, this article focuses on the last time we went to LSU and got smacked. Why? Because this game against LSU isn't a home game. This time though, if LSU has a weakness it's their defense. (David Jones, USA Today)

Muschamp would take 51-50 win over LSU: What is valued more: defensive pride or winning the game? I agree with Muschamp here in that win the game and worry about everything else second. (Glenn Guilbeau, Shreveport Times)

Baseball Playoffs: Thank you Bud Selig for ruining them and just about everything else with the game of baseball. You couldn't retire soon enough.

Hockey: So glad the season has started. Let's Go Blues!
