Chomping at Bits comes stocked with the best Florida Gators links and news we can find, and maybe some other stuff. Here’s hoping it will be daily through the rest of football season.
Florida-LSU set for 8:00 p.m. kickoff on ESPN: I guess this is LSU’s first home game against Florida in three years because LSU’s AD refused to offer Florida any plausibly viable solutions to playing a game in Florida with a hurricane bearing down and then refused any solutions other than stealing a Florida home game afterward. So, hey, it’s a big game! And it should be a night game! Just like all of the two night games Florida has played against LSU at home this decade! (Carroll Rich, Florida Gators)
Jeremiah Moon named SEC Defensive Lineman of the Week: The lanky rusher has been a rather relentless force up front. (Carroll Rich, Florida Gators)
Florida close to full strength for Auburn: Obviously, Feleipe Franks still being out is a thing, but the Gators’ defense should have its full complement of players who were healthy entering the fall. (Robbie Andreu, The Gainesville Sun)
Florida picks up 2020 JUCO forward Osayi Osifo: Florida’s first recruit to commit since its staggering 2019 class was finalized is not really on the level of any of those players, but is from my neck of the woods. (Eric Fawcett, Gator Country)
Dan Mullen coached after an emergency appendectomy in 2007: Mullen told this story during his press conference on Monday in a way that suggests he’s told it before — if not at Florida — and the simple note that he coached after that appendectomy is well enough known that it appeared in Buddy Martin’s Urban Meyer biography from 2008. But the story is something else, as told by Mullen, and you really should watch him tell it in the video below. (Pat Dooley, The Gainesville Sun | Jacquie Franciulli, Gators Territory)
