I apologize if I am ignorant.

I'm not saying there is anything wrong with the hit just the celebration of the serious injury to a player with a bright future.

Just got back from the game. Tebow was taken to UK hospital for precautionary measures.
All I can say is, Florida is lucky to have a bye week next weekend. Tebow is going to be feeling the post-concussion symptoms for quite some time.

With Tebow sick, they probably should have sat him this week anyway. They obviously didn't need him.
The game was over with by the first quarter and Tebow was sick anyways. He should have sat out the second half but I think Meyer wanted to take a tip from the "ole ball coach" and run the score up.
Now Florida has a date at Tiger Stadium against LSU in a couple of weeks and no certainty that Tebow will be able to play.
Tebow shouldnt have been in the game in the second half and as the other poster said, they probably wouldnt have needed him at all anyway.
As far as the moral victory, the only thing I can hang my hat on is saying for quarters 2-4 , it was 10-7 Florida. Thats the best I can come up with.
Sacks, good hits etc is one thing but a guy spitting up blood and taken to the hospital doesnt qualify as a moral victory to me. That isnt my style.
Kentucky isnt no where near the same level as Fla but with the game at home, they shouldnt have been beat that bad.
I thought they had a better shot at Alabama than Fla anyway but now, that looks doubtful.

As for my musings about the spread being too high, I guess I look pretty silly right now. Take away those Florida scoring drives in the first quarter and the score may have been much closer, however.
Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.
Please, Tebow was in the game because after the 1st quarter the O had struggled, why not leave him in and let him try and get it in sync? as a Gator fan (the only one here funny enough ) I don't blame Meyer one bit, as for running it up, it's the other teams job to stop that.
Injuries happen, cheering for it though, yeah I'm glad I'm not that type of football fan.
And for the record, if Tebow would have been pulled after the first quarter, I really don't think Kentucky would have still had a shot in coming back. That is how much faith I have in Hartline as a starter.
From everything I have read and seen with Tim Tebow, he is an excellent person and I am not knocking him. I do think at the same time that he has been overglorified by ESPN and it really puts him in the same boat as Tom Brady last season. One of the UK websites I read had a lot of people leaving comments before the game on how people shouldn't criticize Tebow because of everything he does, but at the end of the day, i'm just looking at what team he plays for as a fan.
