Quote of the Day: "That’s Tim"

Urban Meyer on the possibility that Tim Tebow will not be invited to this year's Heisman:

“Absolutely, yeah I’ll be upset,” Urban Meyer said Tuesday. “‘Cause he didn’t throw for as many yards as another guy? He’s the quarterback of the No. 1 team in college football. I think the Heisman goes to the best player, and it’d be hard to argue that he’s not.”

But one stat from this year stands above all others – 10-0, the Gators’ current record. Tebow may have had better numbers the past two years, but he has never led them to an undefeated season.

“How do you evaluate a player, especially a leader?” Meyer said. “Do you win games? That’s always been number one.”

Tebow said winning a second Heisman “is not something that I really think about or care about.”

“That’s Tim,” Meyer said. “What’d you expect him to say?”
