Florida Gators vs Georgia Bulldogs

(Aired on CBS this Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET.)





This Saturday 10-31-09, the SEC will continue churning out some of the best football in the country. Nowhere will this be more apparent than in the contest between the Georgia Bulldogs and the Florida Gators. The Bulldogs come in with a 4-3 record and some disappointing losses. If you're looking for Free College Football Picks the Gators are still on top of the world with an undefeated record and #1 ranking. This one should be a pretty good game between two solid teams in the powerful SEC. The Gators are favored to win, but the Bulldogs have played some good football this season.

The Florida Gators have survived some close calls in recent weeks. Against Arkansas, they barely won by a field goal and were aided by a few bogus calls along the way. The officiating crew that called the game was recently suspended because of them. While they are still the most talented team, they have struggled a little bit in recent games, even though they still managed to win. Tim Tebow is still a champion and still manages to find ways to win. The guy never gives up regardless of how badly the team has played recently. The defense is still one of the best, if not the best in the country and the Bulldogs will have their hands full trying to score on them.

For the Bulldogs, they have been a bit up and down. When quarterback Joe Cox plays well, they tend to do well. When he struggles, they are usually a little bit down. As far as Free Football Picks go the Bulldogs should have some extra motivation after last year’s game against the Gators. In the game, coach Urban Meyer called two timeouts in the final minutes of a 49-10 blowout. The Bulldogs have several pictures of Meyer all over the facility while he was calling the timeout. That should provide a little extra incentive for the Bulldogs as they line up on the other side of the ball.

good win tyler, vince dooleys wife is on a sports show here,once a week for half an hour, , she is a hoot,her stories about bear bryant when she was like in her 20s are funny, all her stories are good, the show is actually nation wide in some areas,but originates here,, she had thought georgia had a chance to win, but that was a good win by florida, she did comment that hershel walkers did his record in 3 years and no play off games, but a record is a record, they all dont match exactly,, i sure wish tebow had come to bama , he had thought about it. he is just plain great, bama i think has a uphill fight to make the play offs, auburn seemed to get back on track today, beating ole miss, and LSU next week will be probably the hardest game,, im not sure we can beat them, we have lost something, it seems, maybe the rest will help, bama better have a good game plan, LSU is fast,take care

Thanks rosco.

Timothy Richard "Tim" Tebow (born August 14, 1987 in Manila, Philippines) is a Heisman Trophy-winning American football quarterback for the Florida Gators. He was the first college football player to both rush and pass for 20 touchdowns in a season and was the first sophomore to win the Heisman.

Tebow played quarterback for Nease High School in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, where he became a Division I-A recruit and ranked among the top quarterback prospects in the nation as a senior. After a tight recruiting battle, he chose to attend the University of Florida over the University of Alabama. Tebow, being a dual threat quarterback adept at rushing and passing the football, was used in his freshman season largely as a change of pace to the Gators' more traditional quarterback, Chris Leak. His contribution in the 2006 college football season was as a key reserve who helped the Gators win college football's national championship game for the first time since 1996.

As a sophomore in the 2007 season, he became the Gators' starting quarterback and broke the Southeastern Conference records for both rushing touchdowns and total touchdowns accounted for in a single season. In addition to the Heisman Trophy, his performance in 2007 also earned him the Maxwell Award as the nation's top football player, the Davey O'Brien Award as the nation's best quarterback, and the James E. Sullivan Award as the nation's most outstanding amateur athlete in any sport.

Early years

Tebow was born on August 14, 1987 in the Philippines to Bob and Pam Tebow, who were serving as Christian missionaries at the time. While pregnant Pam suffered a life-threatening infection with a pathogenic amoeba. Because of the drugs used to rouse her from a coma and to treat her dysentery, the fetus experienced a severe placental abruption. Doctors expected a stillbirth and recommended an abortion to protect her life. She carried Timothy to term, and both survived.

All of the Tebow children were homeschooled by their mother, who worked to instill the family’s Christian beliefs along the way. In 1996, legislation was passed in Florida allowing homeschooled students to compete in local high school sporting events. The law specifies that homeschooled students may participate on the team of the local school in the school district in which they live. The Tebows lived in Jacksonville, Florida, and Tim played linebacker and tight end at the local Trinity Christian Academy for one season. Tebow's preferred position was quarterback, but Trinity football team's offense did not rely on passing the football, so he began to explore his options to play for a new high school.[9] He decided to attend Nease High School, which under head coach Craig Howard was known for having a passing offense. With the rest of his family living on a farm in Duval County, Tim and his mother moved into an apartment in nearby St. Johns County, making him eligible to play for the football team at Nease. His performance soon turned heads and led to a minor controversy of him being a home-schooled student having his choice of school to play for.

As a junior at Nease, Tebow’s stock rose as he became a major college football quarterback prospect and was named the state of Florida's Player of the Year. He would repeat as Player of the Year in his senior season. One of his highlights as a high school athlete was finishing a game on a broken leg.[12] During his senior season he led the Nease Panthers to a state title, earned All-State honors, was named Florida's Mr. Football and a Parade All-American. Tebow finished his high school career with 9,810 passing yards, 3,186 rushing yards, 95 passing touchdowns and 62 rushing touchdowns. He played in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl Game in San Antonio, Texas which features the top 78 senior high school football players in the nation and is shown nationally on NBC television.

Tebow was considered one of the nation’s top recruits and was the subject of an ESPN “Faces in Sports” documentary. The segment was titled "Tim Tebow: The Chosen One", and focused on Tim’s homeschool controversy and missionary work in the Philippines, as well as his exploits on the field of play and the college recruiting process.[15] Tim Tebow was also featured in Sports Illustrated on the “Faces in the Crowd” page. In 2007 he was named to FHSAA's All-Century Team that listed the Top 33 football players in the state of Florida's 100 year history of high school football.

Despite having family ties to the University of Florida, where his parents first met as students, he remained open-minded during the recruiting process and became very close to Alabama coach Mike Shula. After careful consideration he decided to play for Urban Meyer's Florida Gators. One of the reasons he chose Florida was because of Meyer's spread option offense, an offense for which Tebow was deemed a prototypical quarterback.[20]

Tebow spent the last three summers before enrolling at the University of Florida in the Philippines, assisting with his father's orphanage and missionary work. He is also a self-proclaimed virgin and is "saving himself" for marriage. Tebow appeared late Saturday night, July 25, 2009 at a Rascal Flatts concert and sang a few lines along with the group and Darius Rucker, as well as signed and tossed a football out into the crowd.

College career

Tebow started his career at Florida in the 2006 "Orange and Blue" Spring scrimmage, where he completed 15 of 21 pass attempts for 197 yards and one touchdown. Coach Urban Meyer declared that Leak would remain the starting quarterback despite the expectations and performance of Tebow in the game. Prior to the 2006 season, Tebow was listed by Sports Illustrated as college football's future top mobile quarterback.

Tebow made his college debut coming off the bench behind Chris Leak in a goal line situation against Southern Miss. He rushed for a touchdown on a designed quarterback scramble on his first play. In his next game, he led the team in rushing yards against UCF.

He made his SEC debut against the Tennessee Volunteers on September 16. His performance included a ten-yard run on his first carry and converting a critical fourth down near the end of the game, which led to the Gators' go-ahead touchdown.[29]

Tebow's biggest game in the season came against the LSU Tigers on October 7, where he accounted for all three of the Gators' touchdowns, passing for two and rushing for another. Tebow had a one-yard run on the goal line for his first score, a one-yard "jump pass" to tight end Tate Casey, in which he jumped in the air and double-pumped his arm before releasing the ball, and a 35-yard play-action pass to wide receiver Louis Murphy.

Tebow played a role in the Gators' victory in the 2007 BCS National Championship Game against Ohio State. He threw for one touchdown and rushed for another, finishing with 39 rushing yards.[31] He finished 2006 with the second-most rushing yards on the Gator team.

hey tyler,,tebow will be something to watch in the pro draft, i bet it will be one of the most publicized drafts in the history of the event, i pray he stays health, and i know he is a very good person, so that is a big plus, pro teams need good honest ppl, many are not. any pro team that can get him will certainly have a prize. player like him dont come along but once in a long while, he is the total package. i just hope we have the honor to play him one more time , but we have road blocks, or maybe its destiny, i hope it is, but that team in baton rouge scares me alot, we actually years ago played better there than at home, i think this may be a home game but im not at all sure, but i will check, its next weekend, so this is a big weekend coming up,, we will have to be on top of our game,, take care
