I apologize for lack of indendations for every paragraph. I'm still trying to figure Blogger out.
You know it’s the off-season when the media’s hyping something so idiotic and minute as “The Old Ball Coach” not voting for Tim Tebow as the Preseason 1st team All SEC quarterback. Seriously, when will football get here?
For those that don't know the story (and you call yourself a sports fan?) former University of Florida legend and current University of South Carolina Coach, Steve Spurrier, "accidentally" voted for Ole Miss quarterback Jevan Snead over University of Florida quarterback, and former Heisman winner, Tim Tebow for the SEC's top QB spot in the preseason polls.
It’s Spurrier’s prerogative whom he votes for. I was under the impression that this vote was anonymous. If Spurrier feels Timmy isn’t the best QB in the SEC then that’s his deal. The whole country knows Tebow is the best quarterback and possibly the best athlete in college football. Why does it have to be justified on paper?
We’ve all seen this young man’s body of work. Shouldn’t that be enough? Football is still played on the field and not in polls, right?
Now, Gator fans feel betrayed and upset that their most recognizable player in the history of their program isn’t the unanimous decision on paper due to their former beloved coach. Who cares?
Spurrier’s arrogance bit off more than it can chew by taking on the NFL and failing then believing he could turn a bad South Carolina team around. The game has passed him by and his credibility crumbled years ago. Yet, Florida fan is irate. Who has had more success over the last 3 seasons? ‘Nuff said.
Florida’s got more important things to worry about, namely an SEC and National Title defense. Oh, and embarrassing Lane Kiffin and his Vols.
I know Gator fan has to hear it over and over. They love the reaffirmation that they have the best team, best program, best players, et cetera. Leave it alone, people. Timmy’s the best and Steve-O was the man responsible for your initial rise to prominence. No vote necessary.
