Rumors were flying all day that Tebow was too ill to play, but that he might play anyway, and that he would deliver the most inspired, heroic performance of all time. On the contrary! From GatorSports:
Florida quarterback Tim Tebow appeared to be fine while warming up for tonight's game against Kentucky.
He appeared energized throwing passes.
So instead of an inspiring story that's equal parts Knute Rockne, All American and The Natural, we have the best team in the country playing a far inferior rival in the most boring city in Kentucky. It should still be fun, especially if you fraternize with like-minded individuals in the Alligator Army or A Sea of Blue game threads.
