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."

sdmmia, you are a retard.  Someone HAS balls to not vote him in the first team.
Or common sense.  Heck, my chubby a** could get the Gators 10 wins.  Without Tebow, FL is still a top 10, possibly top 5 team.  So in that regards, he isn't the most valuable player to his team.  Not really.  Plus, there are just as many people who think Snead will be the better QB.  That's not necessarily a knock, but would Tebow have Ole Miss where they r now?
We won't really know for awhile though.  The media is so busy fawning over Tebow that to everyone NOT a Gator fan he takes joy away from the game.
It's because of him that I'm thankful for not being the object of the media's desire.  Because of Bradford, I'm thankful for having a good dentist.  For McCoy, I'm thankful that my parents aren't idiots and gave me a real f***ing name.  I can only hope justice will come and none of these polesmokers will make the title game.

Who the f*** cares.  Get off this kid's nuts.
I didn't even know they did preseason all-conference teams.  
Please don't ruin this website with 50,000 articles that all read the same way:  Tim Tebow, slurp slurp.  Gaytors,  slurp slurp.  Best of all time, slurp slurp.
Please stop.  Really.

THE POINT IS THE COACH DOESNT HAVE THE BALLS TO SAY IT WAS HIM!!!!!!!!!! IT DOESNT MATTER BUT ONLY SNEAD EVEN HAS A CHANCE TO GET THE VOTE AND HIS COACH DIDNT VOTE FOR HIM. SO OBVIOUSLY IT AS JUST A COACH PLAYING GAMES. BUT HAS NO BALLS!!!!!

It's preseason guys, REALLY!

I'm tired of hearing about this overblown story. It's an opinion that the voting is based on. In somebodies opinion Tebow isn't thought to be the All Conference QB in their opinion. Everyone has an opinion based on their observations and feelings of how good the QB's in the conference are. Their is no way to really say without a doubt which QB is better than any other QB coming into the season. Do I think Tebow is the the best QB in the conference, I would say yes. That's my opionion. Others are aloud to come to their own conclusions. Even if the coach didn't vote for him just for spite, WHO CARES. Its really not that serious for everyone trying to do a witchhunt for a preseason ranking that means nothing. When the games are played, the All Conference QB voting will be more meaningful. If something is odd then maybe its worth writing about. This preseason crap is just ridiculous.

I can't believe this story is this hyped up. You really think Tebow gives a s**t about who voted for him or not. Hmmmm Twno Naitonal titles, a Heisman, I'm pretty sure everyone knows he's the best QB in the SEC. Votes don't mean squat.

Kiffin has already been asked.  They contacted him today. He said he voted for Tebow. Most think it's spurrier. Actually most  coaches didn't vote.  Their assistents voted for them

Actually all eleven are suspects if you think about it. It may have been your old ball coach Spurrier.

Well, at least we know one of the suspects is Kiffin.
