Silver Ball defense in progress

The Gators are driving towards what will be the first of many scores today, I imagine. But there was a moment just now. Tebow dropped back on second and long, and was mauled, being called for intentional grounding. For a brief second he looked human. It might seem unlikely, but cast your mind back to the end of the 2007 season, and the Capital One Bowl. Late in the game, Michigan defense rated highly by no-one laid out Tebow every time he dropped back, and Florida never looked like getting the last score to win a fantastic game.

Of course, the two programs went in very different directions last season. But remember, Tebow is human. He can be beaten.
