It's barely been 12 hours, and I'm already getting sick of hearing about Tom Turbo, or Tim Tebow, or whatever his name is. For child-related reasons, I missed most of Thom Brennaman's man-crush on Tebow and I count myself fortunate. Tebow is a great player who had a nearly legendary game last night, but seriously, he's starting to come across like some sort of mixture of Chuck Norris and Gandhi. (Did you know that every time Tim Tebow belches, part of the ozone layer gets restored?)
I don't want to take anything away from Florida's title, and Tebow certainly didn't ask the media to talk about him incessantly. I can't help but wonder one thing, though.
Why aren't people talking more about the Gator defense?
It seems to me that, if a team usually scores in numbers normally associated with high school basketball but gets held to two touchdowns and twice comes out of the red zone empty-handed, that just might be the story of the game. But it's all Tom Turbo, all the time, with a smidgen of Percy Harvin thrown in to establish that this was a team effort, don't you know. It's enough to make a football fan watch HGTV.
