Urban and Tebow, and OK, this was cool

Two hours before kickoff against Florida State, Florida coach Urban Meyer was on the field, just him and daughter Gigi Nicki, greeting every Gator as the team walked through the stadium and across the field toward the locker room. By 1:37 p.m., the team was gone, but Meyer and Nicki stayed. It was almost as if one Gator had yet to cross the field.

One guess who that was.

Ten minutes later, a handful of sheriff's deputies start walking down the empty stadium steps. They are followed by a single Gator. Of course, it's Tim Tebow.

Meyer meets him at midfield with a hug. Nicki hugs him. They walk toward the locker room, and Tebow throws his arm around Meyer's shoulders as they disappear into the tunnel.

I don't care who you are or how cynical you are (guilty ): If you were here, and you didn't get goosebumps watching this, you're a cadaver.

Well, look. I'm not a "Tebow is the best" guy, but in his and Florida's defense, the reason he comes in so late is because he's the one out there signing autographs to the end. The demand for him is different than for anyone else. Factually speaking.Good point. Also remember this wasn't introductions for the game as this happened about two hours before the game is supposed to start.

The delayed entry and armed escort are not at his own request but UF's as a precaution. 

Don't confuse the University of Florida's asset protection with Tim Tebow's team mentality.

Tebus waits until the rest of the team is gone, so he gets HIS grand entrance, and he needs an armed ecsort. Yep, he's a team player. Team Tebus, maybe.

Marketing at its finest.

Colt McCoy has meant just as much to Texas as Tebus does to Florida, yet Colt stayed part of the TEAM. Even when he came out of his last home game, it was with the rest of the offensive senior starters. He took his farewell lap with the rest of the seniors.

So sick of Tebow.  Ryan Mallett is the best QB in the SEC.False.
