Quote of the Day: Tebow and Halloween

Q: What would you normally be doing on Halloween?

A: Most of the time I would be getting ready to play the University of Georgia. That’s usually what I would be getting ready to do.

Tebow and the Broncos

And we thought last season was the "season of the weird."

A year ago did you think that both Florida and Georgia would be meeting as unranked teams?  Probably not.

Which brings us to yesterday's Broncos-Raiders game.  Did you ever think that you would not see a first round draft pick back up QB get some playing time in such a lop-sided defeat?  We missed the game because we were flying back to Gainesville.  Got home late Sunday night, saw the score and thought "well, maybe there will be some Tebow  highlights..."  Had very mixed feelings when the realization that he didn't play sunk in.

Throughout this season we were beginning to think that we didn't quite get pro ball because we are first and foremost college football fans.  But, apparently, we aren't alone:

In the fourth quarter, when only a few thousand masochists were left in a 75,000-seat stadium, McDaniels could have given the die-hards one reason to cheer by inserting Tebow at quarterback. McDaniels never made the move. Stubborn and stupid is no way to go through life.

"That's not really the time that I'd want (Tebow) to get work," said McDaniels, explaining why Orton played to the bitter end, at a time when the only dramatic thing Orton could have done was get injured during the final minutes of a blowout.

 "Stubborn and stupid is no way to go through life."  Those are some very harsh words.  

Sorry, but we have no words of wisdom today.  Some times it is better to just say nothing.

Tebow unlikely to play this season

The experts over at don't believe Tebow will see much, if anymore, playing time this season...and that's a good thing:

Tim Tebow is in the best situation to most benefit his career,” NFL Network insider Michael Lombardi said. “He is watching an offense operate at the highest level in terms of passing yards, as he can visualize his playing without having to actually play. He is learning, he is developing and he is going to benefit from this time much like Aaron Rodgers benefited from his time off.” analyst Pat Kirwan agreed, noting it’s better for Tebow’s development if he doesn’t have to focus on being a change-of-pace player in the Wildcat formation.
 "Tebow has a lot to learn before he can be an effective NFL quarterback,” Kirwan said. “The Wildcat doesn’t really help him advance his pro career as a QB.”
As for Tebow’s role as the Broncos’ No. 2 QB, Kirwan doesn’t view it as a ringing endorsement that the former Heisman Trophy winner is ready to lead a pro offense, but rather it’s a reflection on the team’s other backup signal-caller.
“It says there isn’t a lot of faith in Brady Quinn,” Kirwan said.

Danny Wuerffel returns to UF

From Pat Dooley and the Gainesville Sun

Five years ago, Danny Wuerffel (legend, TV pitchman) was on the field before a game with one of the kids from the Desire Street Academy imploring Gator fans to help his mission after it was devastated by Hurricane Katrina.

On Saturday night, Wuerffel will be back on the field to say thank you. This time he hoped to have a pair of Desire Street Academy graduates with him but Lavar Edwards and Deangelo Peterson are busy.
They play for LSU.

“I’ll have two Desire graduates with me but I was hoping to have those two guys as well,” Wuerffel told me this week. “I don’t think Les Miles is going to let me.”

No, they’re too busy in the pre-game listening to Miles present his theories on clock management.
Leave it to Danny to let us know there are things more important than the results of football games.

Go Gators!
