If any one single football player can be said to represent a college football team it’s probably Tim tebow. Talking Gators football has meant talking Tim Tebow for the past four years or so. But Hey! Tim Tebow is now seeking new challenges in the NFL and the Florida Gators football program has to move on.
The Tebow afterglow has worn thin now, the dreams of another BCS National Championship rest heavily on the shoulders of his succesor John Brantley. Brantley has been waiting his turn, biding his time, and plans on establishing his own rep now that he has been named the Gators starting quarterback. The spring game was good to Brantley as he completed 15 of 19 throws and looked every bit the seasoned college football quarterback. Can he erase memories of Tim Tebow? No, but he can create his own.
