Chomping at Bits: Florida-South Carolina set for noon kickoff on ESPN

At least noon games in October aren’t usually mercilessly hot?

NCAA Football: Florida at Louisiana State Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports

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-South Carolina set for noon on ESPN: LOVE THESE NOON-ERS, clap, clap, clap-clap-clapped nobody. But Florida and LSU were likely playing for the 3:30 p.m. slot on CBS on Saturday, so this is no surprise. (UAA Communications, Florida Gators)

Florida’s defense struggles at LSU: It’s very hard to pick a best worst stat from Saturday night. How about LSU scoring 42 points with just over 21 minutes of possession? (Chris Harry, Florida Gators)

Florida volleyball rallies to knock off Texas A&M: The Gators needed all five sets to down the Aggies on Sunday. (Katie Callahan, Florida Gators)

Florida soccer pours it on to top Kentucky: Four straight goals is a good way to win any game, I think. (Mary Howard, Florida Gators)

To get its house in order, USC should make its next AD ... Jeremy Foley? Considering the source — and the decent authority I have on that source not being one of Foley’s favorite writers — I am very curious as to why this was written. Foley wouldn’t come cheap, likely isn’t particularly interested in leaving Gainesville, and wouldn’t be a necessary key to wooing Urban Meyer to Los Angeles — even if, sure, he’d help. Is this a smokescreen to help assure that USC hires a Meyer-friendly AD? (Pete Thamel, Yahoo Sports)

A note on posting: Yes, there’s still a Sunday Morning Post coming (as a Monday Afternoon Post, most likely), but I got caught between wanting to preserve the “haven’t seen the game or highlights” bit and actually writing it on Sunday, and so just didn’t write at all. Expect a Weekly Open Thread before it, though.

The fantastic Tim Locastro: Foolish Baseball is one of my favorite YouTube channels, and while some of the topics on hand aren’t exactly teaching me things (yeah, I know 1999-2000 Pedro was the best ever), its best videos — like this one on Diamondbacks speedster Tim Locastro, who has also seemingly mastered at the MLB level something that Kirsti Merritt did in collegiate softball — are ones that reveal like three wonderful facts to me.

And if I’m gonna do link dumps, I’m gonna share stuff like this.

Hopefully, you’ll enjoy them, too.
