Looking at the final season of Tebow's college career, those of us who attended Florida or are students are attached to him as more than just our quarterback. When Tebow plays or when his service projects are publicized, we're not a party school or the 47th school in the country. We don't have to worry about budget cuts or the skyrocketing cost of living in Gainesville. All that matters is that we have the best damn college football player of the last 30 years. Another championship puts Tebow in a discussion with Red Grange, Barry Sanders, Jim Thorpe and Herschel Walker. Could you imagine a Gator (a Florida Gator!) on that list? And Tebow could have three championships. No one can match that. That means no one can match us.
And it also means the next generation of Gators, and Tebow fans, know that greatness is possible.
