Is Tebow secretly playing through pain?

GAINESVILLE -- Is anyone out there other than me convinced that Florida quarterback Tim Tebow is playing despite chronic soreness in his back?

I asked Tebow the question on Saturday after the 38-7 win against Ole Miss and Tebow smiled, paused for a moment and said, "I was all right."

Thoughts, anyone? From the press box, I couldn't help but notice Tebow constantly stretching on the sidelines during the game, as if his back was stiff.

I've been cruising through the Florida message boards this morning and fans are in complete meltdown mode about the Gators' offense. A quick thought before I board my plane for Gainesville: Despite the offense's inconsistent play, the Gators are among the SEC leaders in scoring. According to secsports.com this morning, Florida's offense is tied with LSU for second in the SEC at 35.5 points per game.

According to Florida's sports information department, the Gators are practicing on Sunday night and will take Monday off.
