Recent News named former Florida QB and Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow as the best college football player of the 2000s.
It's hard to argue with this assertion. Tebow was a key backup as a true freshman on a title winner in 2006, then started in his final three years, winning the Heisman in 2007, the first sophomore to come home with the hardware. "In his final two seasons, Tebow guided Florida to a 26-2 record, including the national title in 2008," wrote staff writer Mike Huguenin. "He was a Heisman finalist as a junior and senior, and finished his career with 9,285 passing yards, 2,947 rushing yards, 88 passing TDs and 57 rushing TDs. He is second in NCAA history in career passing efficiency and is one of only two players in NCAA history to run and pass for at least 50 TDs each and to account for at least 300 points as a runner and 500 as a passer." It's interesting to note that the top five players on's list were all draft busts: Tebow was followed, in order, by QB Vince Young, RB Darren McFadden, RB Reggie Bush and QB Matt Leinart.

"I am so excited that ESPN has given me this incredible opportunity," Tebow said in a statement.

Just when we thought the 2009/10 coaching carousel had stopped, Florida coach Urban Meyer's retirement sets it spinning again.  So who are the candidates?

The obvious names that will be tossed around are Mississippi State's Dan Mullen and recently hired Louisville head man Charlie Strong.  Both are ex-coordinators under Meyer at Florida, but have also recently secured their own head coaching gigs, which will be difficult to walk away from.  You can also fire up the Bob Stoops rumor machine as he has Florida ties, but we don't see him leaving Oklahoma.  Utah’s Kyle Whittingham and TCU’s Gary Patterson seem like good fits.  Both have defensive backgrounds and run similar offenses.  At some point someone is going to make a run at Boise State's Chris Peterson, Standord's Jim Harbaugh and Rutger's Greg Schiano. Want a dark horse?  Texas Tech's Mike Leach.  He has no ties to the Florida nor has his name been even mentioned.  But his relationship with the Tech athletic department is not the healthiest and he is a proven big name coach.  One thing is for sure, pay no attention to "(i

Florida coach Urban Meyer gave more insight into his sudden retirement to the New York Times Saturday night.  What was initially reported as dehydration after the SEC championship game turned out to be much more serious.  Meyer suffered severe chest pains and lost consciousness.  “There was no heart damage,” Meyer said. “But I didn’t want there to be a bad day where there were three kids sitting around wondering what to do next. It was the pattern of what I was doing and how I was doing it. It was self-destructive.”

We wish Meyer all the best in his retirement and spending time with his family.  Meyer has a wife and three daughters.

ESPN is reporting that Florida coach Urban Meyer is resigning as the head coach at Florida.  "I have given my heart and soul to coaching college football and mentoring young men for the last 24-plus years and I have dedicated most of my waking moments the last five years to the Gator football program," Meyer said in a released statement. "I have ignored my health for years, but recent developments have forced me to re-evaluate my priorities of faith and family."

At this point it would wrong to provide any further speculation.  A press conference is scheduled for Sunday.

As the coaching carousel speeds up we can expect new candidates to emerge, and Tampa Bay Online reports that Florida quarterback coach Scott Loeffler should be a serious candidate at Central Michigan and maybe even Buffalo.

Loeffler has Michigan connections, so a move to CMU would make sense.

Quarterback Tony Pike and the Bearcats' passing game will get a chance to show what they can do against one of the nation's top defenses.  And Florida quarterback Tim Tebow will look to go out with a win in his final game as a Gator.

Florida quarterback Tim Tebow completed his final game in The Swamp with a five touchdown performance. Tebow passed for 221 yards and three touchdowns, and added 90 and two scores on the ground.

A game like this was a fitting end to the Tim Tebow Era, and College Football will surely miss one of its greatest all-time players.

Florida quarterback Tim Tebow sat most of the second half as the Gators pounded lowly Florida International. Tebow completed 17-of-25 passing for 215 yards and two touchdowns, and ran seven times for 102 yards and a score.

Surely you've already heard the name, but once Tim Tebow was benched in the second half his protege, John Brantley, entered the game and threw for 146 yards and three touchdowns.

Florida quarterback Tim Tebow is currently tied with former LSU running back Kevin Faulk for most touchdowns (non-passing) in the SEC at 53.

Tebow just needs one rushing touchdown against FIU Saturday to break the record.  If you're curious as to how many records Tebow's a lot.  For a list click the link to the Gainesville Sun below.

Florida quarterback Tim Tebow has dropped to fourth in most Heisman polls and a game in which he may not see much action against an outgunned FIU squad might not help his numbers.

There have been questions all week about how much Tebow will play this week against FIU.  The key will be getting his numbers early, for both fantasy owners and his Heisman chances.

After a string of three poor (at least for Tebow) outings, Florida quarterback Tim Tebow got back on track in a big win over Georgia. Tebow passed for 163 yards and two touchdowns while adding 85 yards rushing and another pair of scores.

How ironic that Tim Tebow breaks Herschel Walker's record for SEC rushing touchdowns against Georgia.

The Mississippi State Bulldogs held Tim Tebow in check Saturday as he turned in one of his worst performances of the season. Tebow was held scoreless through the air and threw two interceptions, completing a 12-of-22 for 127 yards passing performance. The Bow did manage to find the end zone rushing, however, carrying 22 times for 87 yards and a touchdown.  

It seems Tebow has yet to find his normal fantasy superstar rhythm this season, and if he struggled this much with the Bulldogs from Mississippi then facing the Bulldogs from Georgia next week may not be the game that rights the ship.

Florida quarterback Tim Tebow accounted for 324 of the Gators 391 offensive yards to stave off a potential upset from unranked Arkansas. Tebow led the Gators on a game-winning field goal drive almost by himself, and finished the game with 255 yards passing, a touchdown, and 69 yards rushing.

The other shocking statistic that came from this game was the Razorback defense managed to sack Tebow six times. The Gator offensive line hasn't seemed completely in-sync the past few games, but that won't stop Tebow from putting up numbers and winning games. Stay tuned for the dismantling of the Mississippi State Bulldog defensevnext week.

After two weeks of circulating rumors, medical status updates, and speculation by all, it came down to a game time decision by Florida coach Urban Meyer to start senior quarterback Tim Tebow.

While Tebow seemed to be cautious and still not quite himself, he proved his words to be true and led the Gators to a 13-3 win over #4 LSU. Tebow completed 11-of-16 passes for 134 yards, a touchdown, and an interception, and also grinded out 38 yards on 17 carries on the ground.
