Chomping at Bits comes stocked with the best Florida Gators links and news we can find, and maybe some other stuff.
Florida opening Pro Day to public: “For the first time in recent memory,” per the program. I don’t buy that you’re going to learn or see all that much on a Pro Day, unless you’re an aspiring scout or something, but the date coincides with one of Florida’s open practices this spring, so fans could very well double dip. (Will Pantages, Florida Gators)
Florida baseball bludgeons Florida Gulf Coast: Another offensive explosion has the scuffles of the first six or so games this year looking like a distant memory. (Daniel Apple, Florida Gators)
Kevarrius Hayes leads Florida’s seniors into Senior Night: Kinda nuts that Florida ended up with a senior class comprised of three really good dudes (Hayes, KeVaughn Allen, and Jalen Hudson) — but that, for two of them, leadership does not really come naturally, and for the third, it’s hampered by having to lead primarily on defense and in practice. That’s atypical. (Chris Harry, Florida Gators)
Making the case for multiple bye weeks: The dean of the Gators beat makes a decent point here, but I would note that starting a college football season in the third week of August and having it run through the second week of January makes that season almost as long as the NFL season, which would seem to work counter to player safety. (Pat Dooley, The Gainesville Sun)
