Tim Tebow shocked the world when he took some not-so-subtle jabs at Brady Quinn and Notre Dame in an interview posted on University of Florida's official athletics website.
"I had a teammate at Denver who played the same position as me and he went to the University of Notre Dame," Tebow recently said, via GatorZone.com. "He would brag about his university, how great it was. Most of us in the locker room were like, 'C'mon, we all had opportunities. We chose not to go there.' ... But he talked so much about his university that it became easy. I'd say, 'Your whole team had one guy who ran under a 5.0 40 (yard dash). Our kicker ran under 5.0.' "
The problem here? Not the smack talk. The problem is that the website has apparently taken the quote down, according to The Big Lead. Are you kidding? NFL.com's Ian Rapoport bemoaned this latest development, and I agree with him. Tebow finally said something we are interested in and now it's gone. But since Florida (probably at the behest of Tebow's reps) is backing away from the comparison, we'll jump in and take this to the grid! (Disclaimer: Florida has already been docked a point for taking down Tebow's quote).
And without further ado …
And the winner? Notre Dame rules in history and long-ago tradition, but Florida's recent success gives it an 11-9 advantage. (Remember, Florida was docked a point at the beginning.)
