Even Tebow's Backup's Family Thinks Tebow Should Start Against LSU

John Brantley is a name you may not have heard before this week, but now know because he is the backup to Tim Tebow, and could in theory start against LSU if Dr. Forhire somehow doesn’t approve Tebow for the game medically.

This means Brantley’s family has to be thrilled for the opportunity to watch their boy take the reins against LSU and…no? (holds finger to ear) I’m sorry, my producers are now telling me this is not the case.

…surely, as much as the Brantley family loves Tebow, the Brantleys hope John gets the call at LSU?

“Heck no!” Scot Brantley said. “I want to see Tebow!”

Scot Brantley, a former Gator football himself, then points out that he wants to see Tim Tebow play to fulfill his promise to play because “Tebow made that commitment to come back, and I want to see him fulfill his commitment.” Even if his brain is bruised. I’ll be over here mourning the death of common sense if you need me.
