Whither Tebow? (Saturday noontime edition)

Florida coach Urban Meyer said Saturday morning that Tim Tebow "wants to play'' and if he's cleared by doctors from one more set of tests to be taken today Meyer said he will play him. Click here for the story from Florida Today and here for the latest from the Orlando Sentinel.

One of the best things about the end of the 2009 college football season will be that Tebow, his secon Hiesman trophy in hand, will be gone, off to the NFL where he will spend 9 years as a backup QB like most other Heisman-winning QBs.


Can we PLEASE stop with the every-5-second Tebow updates?

Not even a Florida fan , but I am a huge Tebow fan, probably tge greatest college football player to ever play. So don't listen to the haters ...we want to hear all we can and enjoy every week of fotball Mr Tebow gives us this year.

All due respect, J, there's a fair chance that one of these teams gets to the national title game. And what happens with Tebow affects every single dynamic come Saturday night. So, no, we're not overselling.

Speaking of the Gators, whatever happened to Bonnie Kunkel? I miss our spokesperson for the evil Gators. Besides, women seem to be in short supply on this blog and we could use a few more.

Thanks, Bigdawg. I've missed you too! I am due to have a baby in 3 weeks and am still chasing around a toddler so please excuse my absence.

And to J, I'm sorry you're sick of hearing about Tebow. But, he's a great player (the greatest) and an even better person. I think it's wonderful that the sporting world is paying so much attention to him. It gives us all a refreshing break from hearing about players who get our attention because they've done something wrong.

I hope Tebow is well enough to play. If he's not.. if there's even one ounce of skepticism about his health I hope he does not play. In the end, not an SEC championship, a national championship nor a Heisman trophy is worth risking your life.

I hope the Florida coaches and medical staff make the right decision for Tim.
