Chomping at Bits: Ventrell Miller, Brett Heggie named SEC players of the week

The two Gators honored by the SEC were likely not the ones most fans expected.

NCAA Football: Florida at Mississippi Justin Ford-USA TODAY Sports

Chomping at Bits (still) comes stocked with the best Florida Gators links and news we can find, and maybe some other stuff. It will (hopefully) run from Tuesdays to Thursdays in the 9 a.m. Eastern hour this fall.

Florida’s Ventrell Miller, Brett Heggie honored by SEC: Miller won the league’s Defensive Player of the Week award, while Heggie was bestowed Offensive Lineman of the Week. As for Kyle Trask and Kyle Pitts, they’ll have to wait at least another week: Mississippi State quarterback K.J. Costello (rightly) earned Offensive Player of the Week honors for his record-setting day against LSU. (Tommy Scott, Florida Gators)

Dissecting Kyle Trask’s dissection of Ole Miss: I really can’t stand Jordan Rodgers on actual game calls — though, yeah, I’m biased as a Packers fan — but this breakdown is very good.

His grasp of geometry, not so much. (Tip: The Pythagorean theorem can be applied to football, but not precisely to arcs.)

Florida-Ole Miss advanced stats review: Glad that friend of the blog — and erstwhile Team Speed Kills boss Year2 — David Wunderlich is still doing these. (David Wunderlich, Gator Country)

Florida soccer draws Georgia in opener: That’s not a terrible result. (Declan Walsh, The Independent Florida Alligator)

Shelton wins ITA fall event: Ben Shelton, son of Florida men’s tennis coach Bryan Shelton, is shaping up as a potential star for his father’s team. (Ryan Haley, The Independent Florida Alligator)

Alachua County commissioner calls for Florida games without fans: He’s got a point. I think it’s going to fall on deaf ears. But he’s got a point. (Payton Titus, The Independent Florida Alligator)

Semi-random hilariousish Internet thing: I mean, Gus Johnson isn’t wrong about this process, is he? (Contains the medical term for the twig in twig and berries and a sixth grader’s term for the twig being tumescent, FYI, in case you are somehow both in a workplace that would care about those things and not working from home.)
