Chomping at Bits comes stocked with the best Florida Gators links and news we can find, and maybe some other stuff.
Five-star wing Scottie Lewis commits to Florida: Much more on this later, but Florida is building its best on-paper basketball recruiting class ever, and the future is blindingly bright for Mike White’s program at the moment.

- This has been one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever had to make in my life. There has been multiple conversations about what is truly best for me to excel my academic and athletic careers. I would like to thank the coaching staff at the University of Florida and the University of Kentucky for recruiting me and taking the time to help me find the best fit. But the next step for me is a life changing and business decision and with that I would like to announce that I will be joining the culture of University of Florida. GO GATORS!!
Louis Murphy to be Mr. Two Bits for LSU: If Florida can’t swing Tim Tebow being Mr. Two Bits for a) a game he’s in town for as a result of SEC Nation duties that b) doubles as the home game of a given season, I wonder if/when it will actually get him for that. (Chris Harry, Florida Gators)
Dan Mullen wants students to set tone early: Every coach wants this at all times, but it would still be nice to see the student section more than about 60 percent full at 3:30 p.m. sharp this Saturday. (Scott Carter, Florida Gators)
Lawrence Wright is Gators’ SEC Football Legend for 2018: Could we get an oral history of him originating “If you ain’t a Gator, you’re Gator bait?” as a phrase used by Florida to stamp out the stupid and ahistorical suggestion that Florida fans use it because it was once a racist term? (Florida Gators)
How Todd Grantham’s pressure became a problem: More on this later today, but I would like to note that Florida’s social media team very probably used #FourthAndGrantham as a hashtag because someone Florida’s social media team pays attention to turned that phrase (with a bit of profanity) to applause immediately after Donovan Stiner’s sack on Saturday.
