Chomping At Bits: Florida Gators Prepare For Virginia; Bradley Beal Still Undecided

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.

Gators preparing for Virginia's defense: Because Virginia apparently plays like the pace of a snail, the Gators should just channel their inner 'Pacman' Jones and make it rain (with threes, not hundred dollar bills). And yes, I'm secretly hoping that the game doesn't turn into a Tortoise and Hare type of ordeal. (Hays Carlyon, The Florida Times-Union)

Virginia over Florida the trendy pick?: While I'm fully aware that two writers for an SB Nation blog picking Virginia over Florida hardly qualifies something as "trendy," but it isn't like it wasn't expected. Personally I think that Florida gets past Virginia but I do think it could be a close game. (BT Hoops, BT Powerhouse)

No qualms on No. 7 seed: A one-game tournament, each game. Alright. (David Jones, Florida Today)

No. 7 seed a blessing in disguise?: At least one writer thinks so. Depending on how you view the Gators' side of the bracket. Personally, I wouldn't sleep on Louisville, Marquette and Missouri. But hey, everyone has their opinions. (Neil Shulman, In All Kinds Of Weather)

Gators earn All-SEC honors from AP: Three of them to be exact. Bradley Beal, Kenny Boynton and Erving Walker were all voted by the Associated Press onto the second team (Beal and Boynton) and honorable mention (Walker) respectively. Patric Young was also voted Scholar Athlete of the Year. (Adam Silverstein, Only Gators)

Bradley Beal still undecided: According to Beal himself, he doesn't have a clue because he really hasn't thought about it. That's interesting to me because he's a projected lottery pick. (Rachel George, Swamp Things/Orlando Sentinel)

Muschamp's Sporting News interview: I highly recommend that you read it. I especially like the last question of the interview and the fact that Muschamp labeled last season "disastrous." (Matt Hayes, Sporting News)

Women's basketball gets a No. 9 seed: Making the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2009, the Gators were one of the last four teams to get into the tournament. They'll face No. 8 seeded Ohio State in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Does women's basketball count towards the Gators' jinx on Ohio State? (Rachel George, Orlando Sentinel)
