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’s Kerry Blackshear Jr., Andrew Nembhard named to coaches’ preseason All-SEC first team: That was pretty well expected. What surprised me? No Keyontae Johnson on either team. (Hannah Krulevitch, Florida Gators)

Sophomores built Florida’s 2019-20 foundation: And now it’s time for them to build on it. (Chris Harry, Florida Gators)

Florida-Missouri kickoff set for noon on CBS: An 11 a.m. local time start on the road? Gee, what a favor, Eye Network. (Carroll Rich, Florida Gators)

Gators to sell alcohol at men’s basketball games in “pilot program”: These are words that suggest alcohol sales are coming to football games, at least to me. And the rules — two-drink maximums per trip, ID checked on every purchase, and no sales in the second half — all make sense to me if applied to football. (UAA Communications)

Previewing Florida-North Florida: It only feels like Florida has played North Florida every year this decade. (Chris Harry, Florida Gators)

Florida touts new stadium concessions options: Increasing concession stand efficiency is always good, but what’s really cool in this writeup is the to-your-seat water delivery from the app. I can think of a certain person who could’ve used that during the Auburn game. (Will Pantages, Florida Gators)

Tallahassee TV station says Florida State is nearing deal with Bob Stoops: There has been a fair bit of smoke about this, but I’m not sold that Stoops really even wants another college football job, much less that he’d see FSU as currently set up as a desirable one. And it’s notable that “sources” are mostly talking about Stoops being the top candidate — duh? — and staff composition here, not that Stoops has agreed to anything. (Allison Posey, ABC27)
