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.
Percy Harvin to serve as Mr. Two Bits for Florida-FSU: Harvin had been varying levels of estranged from the program since his departure for the NFL, but has been welcomed back into the fold of late — and this, clearly, is a sign that he is in Florida’s good graces and vice versa at present. Expect some loud cheers on Saturday. (Scott Carter, Florida Gators)
Kyle Trask pledges return for 2020 season: This isn’t exactly huge news in my book: Trask is not considered a surefire NFL prospect at this juncture, and it would truly shock the world for him to stay at Florida for four years, finally get a chance to start, star as a starter, and then transfer to another school. (As we’ve discussed here, the really interesting news from Trask would be a pursuit of a waiver to get another year of eligibility that would stake his claim to be Florida’s starter not just in 2020 but 2021.) But it does make it increasingly likely that Florida is likely to begin the 2020 season with Trask, Feleipe Franks, and Emory Jones on the roster, a logjam that is only likely to be solved by a departure — or departures. (Thomas Goldkamp, 247Sports)
Florida’s seniors have been through a lot: While only very few of them were likely initially recruited by Will Muschamp, all of Florida’s four-year seniors have been through two seasons under two coaches. (Sam Campisano, The Independent Florida Alligator)
Gators men’s hoops return to top 25: Nice, if immaterial, to get that little number next to the name back. But it mostly means Florida has to defend its ranking if it wants to keep it, especially at this point in the still-young season. (ESPN)
Florida figuring things out on the fly: It’s almost like a team is not a finished product after four games. Huh! (Chris Harry, Florida Gators)
Keyontae Johnson named SEC Player of the Week: Well-deserved, for a fine showing in Charleston. (Hannah Krulevitch, Florida Gators)
