More on Gators' OC search: Keep in mind that before Brent Pease, the last three guys who held the position all went on to become head coaches. The job is still attractive folks. (Jeff Barlis, SEC Blog/ESPN)

Gators looking at another quarterback for 2014: Couple of reasons for this: the lack of depth due to all the recent graduations and/or transfers and just a general lack of depth at the position. (Jack Jorgensen, FanSided)

CBS to air greatest SEC games: Beginning on the 26th, the CBS Sports Network will air the ten greatest SEC on CBS football games since 2001. The Gators are involved in three of them: 2001 against Tennessee, 2008 against Alabama and 2007 against LSU. (Jon Cooper, Saturday Down South)

SEC Bowl swag: The coolest stuff to me is the Best Buy gift card of the Galaxy Tab. (Edward Aschoff, SEC Blog/ESPN)

Basketball jumps in polls: They don't play until this weekend because of the holiday season, but they're up to No. 13/14 in the AP and Coaches polls now. (GatorZone)

Greatest Christmas movies: We've already done the greatest movies ever and since it's the season, now we'll talk about Christmas movies.

  • 1) It's a Wonderful Life
  • 2) A Christmas Story
  • 3) Trading Places
  • 4) National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
  • 5) Jingle All The Way

Other movies that just missed the list include: While You Were Sleeping, Bad Santa, Rudolph (claymation), The Grinch (not the Jim Carrey version), The Santa Clause, Home Alone, Christmas With The Kranks and Jack Frost among I'm sure many others.

Have a safe holiday season: As a quick personal note, if you're traveling to be with family be safe, have fun and don't do anything that Andy wouldn't do. I'm sure he'd approve of that message. Have a great holiday break and enjoy yourselves.
