One SEC coach is either lying or will be busted

Posted on: July 23, 2009 5:25 pm
 

HOOVER, Ala. -- By Friday we should know if at least one SEC coach is either busted or lying.

Through two days of the conference's media days, eight of the 12 coaches (minus Urban Meyer) said they voted for Tim Tebow as the preseason all-conference quarterback. One problem. Only three players on the team were unanimous selections and Tebow wasn't one of them.

That's somewhat of a surprise, one would think, given that Heisman Trophy and two national championships.  All the league office will say is that Tebow wasn't unanimous. That's not counting Meyer who couldn't vote for his own guy.

With four coaches to go on Friday, the process of elimination will continue.  On deck are Lane Kiffin, Les Miles, Steve Spurrier and Gene Chizik.  So far no one has fessed up. If the trend continues we'll know that at least one coach is not telling the truth. Maybe that's better than enduring the scorn for leaving Superman off the ballot.

"Before I open it up for questions," said Ole Miss' Houston Nutt , "I just want to go ahead and tell you that I voted for Tim Tebow."

In the tightly wound SEC this is becoming big news here this week. One by one the coaches have stood up at a podium in front of 1,000 credentialed media and professed their undying love for Tebow.

"You guys are going to try to narrow it down to get somebody to spill their guts," Kentucky's Rich Brooks said. "How could I not vote for Tim Tebow? We couldn't stop him the last few years ... It isn't me. I'm not the guy. Good luck on your search."


"I don't know if ya'll are going to find the culprit who didn't vote. You could tell him it wasn't me." Vandy's Bobby Johnson said.

Nutt is a fan. The Ole Miss victory at Gainesville last season, prompted Tebow to make "The Promise." The words are inscribed on the side of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. Nutt has read them to <em>his</em> team for inspiration.

"I still have the script on my desk," Nutt said.

The Florida entourage was flying here Thursday when Meyer saw an item in a paper about the "snub" and nudged his quarterback.

"Will it give me a little bit (of motivation)," Tebow said. "Yeah I guess but I have enough that gives me motivation right now. It's really not a big deal to me. It's kind of funny because it's this big a deal. How it's happening is pretty funny."

I couldnt resist. I usually read through this stuff, get a good laugh, and go on my merry way but you are soooo right TuckFexasNow!! This is getting blown way out of proportion!! How much attention can one guy get? Maybe when Tebow is old enough and this "Dodd" character is writing articles for the "Penny Saver" down in New Mexico, he can be Tebow's Presidential campaign manager.. Thanks for a good laugh guys..

No I meant what I said. 2nd best team in the SEC! It goes like this:

National Championships:
2009-UF
2008-LSU
2007-UF
2003-LSU
1998-UT
1996-UF
1992-Bama

Where is Bama, Auburn or Arkansas now.
No way Auburn or Arkansas have better traditions!
Since Florida won there National Championship most recently they are the best in the SE and LSU is 2nd.
So that makes UT 3rd, an Alabama last. Rollover the Tide!!!!

You meant to say 2nd best team in the SEC West, and that's iffy if Arkansas improves. Historically, LSU is no better than probably a tie for third with Arkansas. Alabama and Auburn have better traditions.

WHO cares DODD. Drop it! Steve Spurrier did it because he did not even fill out his ballott. His assistant did it and it was overlooked when Steve Spurrier signed off on it and he appologized. I wish you would just quit writing on here cause your writing sucks!!!

So a coach lied about voting for Tim Tebow, big f-ing deal! So what's going to happen to coach that lied? Lynching? Death Threats (even though there are losers that will do that)? A fine from the SEC?

I love college football but hate the die-hard super sensitive college football fans and homer media types that cover the teams.

It's spurrier you know he doesn't like tebow stealing his thunder because he was florida's best all time qb but not anymore, and he wouldn't like tebow with him being more of a runner either lol.

Doddouche . . . Hurry Up And Marry Tebow Already!

ARE YOU EFFING KIDDING ME?!?!?!?  Does Doddouche seriously not have anything better to write about?  GOOD GOD!!!  No offense to St. Tim Tebow Christ, but this is getting beyond ridiculous!  Two articles today on STTC . . . one on STTC's virginity and the second on who did or didn't vote him as the all-conference QB.  The other day it was about STTC and the Heisman, which I'm sure you've already sent in your vote before the damn season has even started.  ARE YOU FREAKIN' SERIOUS?!?!?!?

Doddouche . . . This is getting pathetic . . .  even for you.  I can't believe CBS is even paying you for this crap!  I'd be afraid to visit your house.  You probably have STTC posters all over your walls in every room.  You're probably sporting the STTC thong underwear as we speak.  And I don't even want to know what STTC paraphenalia you have in your bathroom and bedroom.  Have you taken a magazine and cut out STTC's face, only to stick it on your blow-up doll?

Seriously Doddouche, this is just getting flat out creepy.  Get a life!  Or, at the very least, get some much needed help.  It's becoming an illness for you.

This is ridiculous, Tebow got the shaft. Hope it wasn't Les Miles. LSU is the second best team in the SEC, they don't need that kind of publicity. I'd want to cry if I was Tebow. Going out and winning 2 national championships, Heisman Trophy and all and getting the snub! What else does the guy have to prove. Somebody is in violation of some serious ethical integrity and they'll get to bottom of this. Kiffin has most suspicion for hidding his vote. After all he did start off his SEC career with some indiscretion.
