I know Sam Bradford is good and so is Colt McCoy but I do not understand how any of them can beat Tim Tebow for the Heisman Trophy this season after watching Tebow single handedly beat Alabama 31-20 yesterday in the SEC Championship game. Alabama has a great defense—quick, fast and well-coached. No team in the Big-12 has a defense like this. And Tebow simply took over the game in the fourth quarter with Alabama leading 20-17 at the time. If you love great football then you had ot love this game. It had a bit of everything. I felt Florida would win but not easily. I was right.

I am not too sad about this loss. I believe Florida will win the chamionship game. I never felt Alabama would come this far, at least this fast, anyway. Now the Tide appears headed to the Sugar Bowl and to a date with undefeated Utah. 13-1 would be a dream season frankly. Utah may be a good team but I have to believe that Alabama will be favored and should win. No Alabama team has ever won 13 games. (A quirk of the modern era of course.) So this will be a fine season if Bama wins its bowl game.

Congratulations to my Gator friends. You won it and did so very impressively. I hope you win it all on January 8th. Rolllllllllllllllll Tide!

    A very classy statement. It is refreshing to see gentlemanly and sportsmanlike behavior these days. Best of luck to the Tide and thanks for wishing Tebow and us gators well.

    Hi John:
    I would like to see Florida win the championship (because of Tebow), but I’d put my money on OU.
