1 » Florida Gators quarterback Tim Tebow would look best in street clothes next Saturday says Reid Cherner and Tom Weir of USA Today.

2 » ESPN is reporting that on Wednesday, the Florida Gators offered 4-star athlete/safety Deitrich Riley of La Canada, CA a scholarship to play football in 2010. “It was completely out of the blue,” Riley said. “I was very excited about it, Florida has a great program and is one of the top football programs in the country right now. I haven’t set a date yet, but I’m definitely planning to visit out there.”

3 » Recent 4-star small forward commitment Casey Prather is ready to go to work as a future member of the Florida Gators basketball team. Prather says coach Billy Donovan told him, “If I commit to the system and come in and work hard, anything is possible for me.”

4 » According to the Orlando Sentinel, the city of Jacksonville is attempting to become the newest host of the Under Amour Senior Bowl, ousting Mobile, AL. An additional benefit? Tim Tebow would be prominently featured in the first game.

    Boy, you sure seem to hear alot of opinions and alot of “concern” from alot of these pundits and rival fans. If I didn’t know better, I would almost think that they were trying to pressure Meyer into making a decision regardless of what the medical staff decides. Of course I would expect most Gator haters to want to see Tebow sit since they can’t wait to see UF lose and they know that’s the better chance of that happening. If Tim still is feeling the effects next week or tests show he has lingering effects, he will not play. By the way, why no such concern for Moses Jenkins, who also suffered a concussion and is undergoing the same tests?? He plays on the kickoff teams, a very “high impact” position. I’ll bet he plays and won’t even be noticed.

  3. No, I don’t think Moses plays. Not only did he have a concussion, he had whiplash, too and was in a neck brace. He will be OK, but I would call him doubtful for next Saturday while I would call Tebow questionable. I will be posting something on Moses and expanding it to someone else as well tomorrow.

    Reptiles, Tim is the program. No offense to Jenkins but even he knows that.

    At this point I can’t help but think that we are getting watered down Tim info. LSU DC John Chavis is probably pulling his hair out.
