OU Franks has little respect for Tebow

Oklahoma cornerback Dominque Franks isn't impressed with Florida quarterback Tim Tebow. He has seen better.

On Sunday, the redshirt sophomore from Tulsa -- an All-Big 12 first teamer -- said that OU quarterback Sam Bradford, Texas Tech quarterback Graham Harrell and Texas quarterback Colt McCoy were all better than Florida's quarterback. And that's not all he said...

"If you look at it, the three best quarterbacks in the country came from the Big 12," Franks said. "You look at, the three best receivers came from the Big 12, the best three tight ends came from the Big 12. So, we've played some great offenses and a lot of people don't understand that other conferences don't have what we faced.

"I think our quarterbacks are better. Just the way they conduct themselves -- how they play on the field. playing against those guys, it's a lot harder to prepare for the those guys than it is Tebow.

"From my position, the way they throw the ball, going into a game, you know the quarterback is going to throw the ball 40 times a game verses going into a game, knowing he's only going to throw it 15 or 20. It makes it a lot harder to prepare for those guys.

"We can't be intimidated. [Tebow] is a great player, but intimidated? Not at all."
