Chomping at Bits comes stocked with the best Florida Gators links and news we can find, and maybe some other stuff.
Is Florida spearheading the rise of the SEC East? Maybe. I think this is slightly overblown and/or premature, though, because the No. 2 or 3 team in the East (which is where I’d have Florida right now before any game against Georgia) knocking off what look like the No. 3 and No. 4 teams in the West isn’t some amazing accomplishment, nor reflective on the rest of the division. Florida’s on the rise; the jury’s out on the East. I’ll riff on something else from this later. (Andy Staples, Sports Illustrated)
Florida partied in The Swamp on Saturday: Didn’t that just seem so fun? (Scott Carter, Florida Gators)
Gators’ win over LSU a throwback in many ways: Glad I wasn’t the only one to think this or frame it as such. (Ethan Hughes, Florida Gators)
Vosean Joseph named Walter Camp National Player of the Week: That’s great! It’s a completely meaningless award — it probably doesn’t even get Joseph invited to a December banquet — but neat! (Corinne Simpson, Florida Gators)
Florida volleyball stays undefeated in SEC play: The Gators bounced back from trailing 2-1 to beat Georgia on Sunday. (Katie Callahan, Florida Gators)
Gators soccer loses at South Carolina: That was probably their last, best chance to get a big road win this season, though Florida was missing Deanne Rose due to national team commitments. (Mary Howard, Florida Gators)
