PROGRAMMING NOTE: No.3 Florida (10-1) at FSU (8-3) set for 3:30 p.m. on ABC.
GAINESVILLE -- I'm not going to spend much time on this topic because, well, I'm sick of writing about it, but for those conspiracy theorists among us there were a few signs that Saturday's 70-19 win against The Citadel was Tim Tebow's final home game.
1. Tebow dragged back-up quarterback John Brantley on a victory lap around the field, slapping hands with fans and snapping pictures. Tebow said he brought Brantley along for the ride because he wants to start a tradition. Did Tebow pass the torch to Brantley on Saturday?
2. Tebow quite literally threw in the proverbial towel on Saturday. After his victory lap, Tebow launched a Gatorade hand towel into the stands just before he jogged off the field. (OK, the second one is pretty lame.)
ANYWAY, we move forward quickly this week. Onward to Tallahassee! The 'Noles looked pretty good on Saturday night, beating Maryland 37-3. Will Saturday's game against Florida State be the Gators toughest test of the regular season? Considering what's at stake, I can't imagine Florida walking into The Okey Doak flat or uninspired. With a defense ranked No.7 in the country, the 'Noles will keep it close if they don't make any mistakes a la everyone else Florida has played in the last seven games.
