Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Florida's seeing something it rarely sees on Saturday: A true triple option.

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, or find us on Twitter at @AlligatorArmy or on Facebook at Facebook.com/AlligatorArmy.

Gators prepping for Georgia Southern's triple option: Coaches have made a point this week of saying they've been prepping for it since the summer. Hopefully, that means better results than Florida had early against Furman in 2011. (Scott Carter, GatorZone)

The Georgia Southern scouting report: "Players to Watch: TEs Cody Rediger and Dylan Turner. On the season they have combined to catch zero passes for zero yards, so amazingly, someone has less productive tight ends than Florida." (The Unsportsmanlike Gentleman)

The case for keeping Brent Pease: I'm sure this will be a popular link. (Daniel Thompson, Gator Country)

Jameis Winston updates: What does matching DNA mean? How hard is it going to be for prosecutors to bring charges? Charges aren't coming until next week, at least. And what does this feel like to members of the Tallahassee community? (Bud Elliott, Tomahawk NationPeter Jamison, Tampa Bay TimesJeff Burlew and Jennifer Portman, The Tallahassee DemocratDan Wetzel and Pat Forde, Yahoo! Sports)

It's not just about Jameis: This is a typically persuasive Gawker Media piece (lots of salacious stuff written with little balancing of it) from a FSU TA, but don't kid yourself about how much of what's written here could apply at many schools. (Adam Weinstein, Deadspin)

Sexual assault isn't so rare, either: Speaking of "don't kid yourself about bad stuff," this is a bracing column about how much ugly stuff is alleged to have happened in the UConn athletics program over the last several years. (Jeff Jacobs, The (Hartford) Courant)

Is Al Golden not as good as Miami fans think? An interesting analysis here, and one you can apply to Muschamp. (Vishnu Parasuraman, Page Q Sports)

The legend of Big Irv: Can't believe it's been 10 years since Brett Favre followed his father's death with one of the most unbelievable performances I've ever seen on a football field. This is a good look at their relationship. (Les Carpenter, Yahoo! Sports)

Finally, Channing Crowder peed his pants during a game: Channing Crowder: One weird dude. (Ben Koo, Awful Announcing)

Scandal: Does anyone else here watch Scandal? If not, I'll never bring it up again.

Your Gators moments of zen:

Many Florida football players took in Florida's win over Middle Tennessee State last night. Ronald Powell got caught blinking here.

The Dazzlers have new, ridiculously shiny uniforms.

Bill Nye spoke at Florida on Thursday night.

The comments are yours.
