Chomping at Bits: Florida players like "Rocky Top" now, Tennessee not naming starting QB

Jonathan Ferrey

We live in a bizarro world in which Florida players don't hate "Rocky Top" and Tennessee has no idea what it's doing at quarterback.

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.

Florida players do not hate "Rocky Top": I realize there's basically no fear factor to Tennessee now, but still: This is strange.

Tennessee not naming its starter: Hey, Vols? We know you don't have anyone better than Justin Worley. Just resign yourselves to starting him.

Jon Halapio's welcome return doesn't come without concerns: Florida's right guard will almost certainly not be 100 percent on Saturday, but should still provide a boost. (Chris Harry, Harry Fodder | GatorZone / Jesse Simonton, Gator Clause | Miami Herald / Bryan Holt, Inside the Gators | Rivals — $)

Big Tennessee line presents challenge: Many of those same players allowed Tyler Bray to be so relentlessly pressured in 2012 that he completed just 22 of 44 passes, remember. (Scott Carter, Carter's Corner | GatorZone)

Three-game ticket packages now available: For Arkansas, Vanderbilt, and Georgia Southern, and for $135. Basically, this is a $5 discount per game, and a desperate attempt to sell out three games that haven't yet sold out. (GatorZone)

Your Gators moment of zen: Clever.

Do you hate or hate "Rocky Top"? Is Tennessee's quarterback mind game going to do anything to Florida? Would you rather Halapio wait to be 100 percent before playing again? Have you beaten GTA yet? The comments are yours.
