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.

Gators get 20th win for 14th straight year: The win last night over Alabama was the Gators' 20th win on the season. There are only four teams in the country who have won a longer streak of winning at least twenty games. (Tribune Wire Reports, Orlando Sentinel)

The 2-3 zone made the difference: The Gators switched to a 2-3 zone in the 2nd half and went on their 16-0 run that put the game away. Now if only they could play the zone like Syracuse. ($) (Franz Beard, GatorBait)

Nick Saban's empire to come to an end: Yeah, I just don't see how Saban is going to let things slowly crack at the seams until it crumbles. I think it's going to be more of a quick and somewhat drastic slide. (Spencer Hall, SB Nation)

Saban's empire will be around for awhile: Basically, in order to stop Saban you're going to have to beat Saban. Much in the same way Urban Meyer met his end in the SEC. I agree. (Year 2, Team Speed Kills)

Preston Tucker sets the tone: Tucker is one of the many Gators who turned down professional contracts for the chance to win a National Championship. He's also got to be one of the favorites to win the Golden Spikes award. (Matt Watts, Miami Herald)

McKethan Stadium gets upgrades: The scoreboard is now fully digital. We've made it y'all. (Jason Lieser, Gator Bytes/The Palm Beach Post)

Derek Dooley and oversigning: I don't know about you, but it didn't shock me at all when I read this. The coach with the most depth issues in the conference is a fan of oversigning. Wow! (John Pennington, Mr SEC)

Movers' regret for Missouri and Texas A&M: The folks out in Oklahoma think so. Apparently, the schools entering the Big 12 will have no regrets while those leaving will have regrets. Because that's how it always works, right? Someone has that grudge feeling of being left out. (Berry Tramel, The Oklahoman)
