Chomping at Bits is back and we're discussing Will Muschamp's recent comments at a gathering, the SEC schedule, the Miami Hurricanes and the NBA's greatest ever all-time team.

Muschamp opens up about team and personal life: Best part of the article is the question he was asked by a little girl on whether or not we're going to beat Georgia and FSU this year. (Richard Johnson, The Independent Florida Alligator)

Greatness trumps fairness: Well, we know that Steve Spurrier is big on the Gators playing the Auburn Tigers. I still like it how he always manages to check in on the Gators. I think he wishes he was here. And I know that's the majority opinion. He was right in his resignation letter. (Nick De La Torre, GatorCountry)

Something amiss with the schedule: I don't know, probably because I just don't care all that much so long as we continue to play Florida State every year. (Chris Low, SEC Blog/ESPN)

Hurricanes on horizon?: We talked about it briefly yesterday, but Will Muschamp is "open" to the Gators playing the Hurricanes again soon and Jeremy Foley is receptive to the idea. So far though, the Gators want a neutral site game and the Hurricanes want another home and home. (Edgar Thompson, Swamp Things/Orlando Sentinel)

SEC East's five most important injury returns: Andre Debose and Jeff Driskel make the list for the Gators and I can't disagree. (Jon Cooper, Saturday Down South)

Gators win SEC All-Sports Trophy again: The Gators have now swept all three trophies (men's, women's and overall) in the same year for the fourteenth time. No other SEC school has ever swept the three, once. (Jeff Barlis, SEC Blog/ESPN)

Baseball has little to gain at SEC Tournament: They've already won the SEC regular season title and will likely host a regional. (Robbie Andreu, The Gainesville Sun)

Speaking of that regional: You can now buy tickets for the potential Gainesville regional. (GatorZone)

Women's tennis begin NCAA singles: The Gators will have three participants this year. (GatorZone)

Char-grilling an apple: There was a discussion about this on Mike & Mike this morning and I'm with Mike Golic on this. Bad idea.

On grilling: Charcoal grill only please.

On grilling II: I'll have an article out tomorrow on the AA Tailgate.

Fleet Week is back in NYC: Good.

Indianapolis 500 is Sunday: Yawn.

All-time NBA starting five and sixth man: A buddy (who is a big Chicago Bulls fan) and I got into this discussion last night because we both have a strong dislike for LeBron James. Mostly because he had to join forces with other great players of his era to win a championship and couldn't get one on his own. Imagine if Michael Jordan called up Larry Bird and Magic Johnson and three joined up. Sorry NBA, best team ever. They'd win 80 games.

In the interest of full disclosure: Yes, I'm a Boston Celtics fan. Stupid NBA lottery.

  • Center: Bill Russell
  • Power Forward: Tim Duncan
  • Small Forward: Larry Bird
  • Shooting Guard: Michael Jordan
  • Point Guard: Magic Johnson
  • Sixth man: Sidney Moncrief

You can go ahead and rotate Jordan and Moncrief in and out of the starting lineup over the course of the season. I fully believe that Jordan's starting role on my all-time NBA team is the weakest when compared to other players throughout this history of the game who have played his position.
