Nick Saban, Mark Richt and Houston Nutt say they casted votes for Tim Tebow

HOOVER, Ala. -- The SEC Media Days who-done-it search will continue until Friday.

Georgia coach Mark Richt, Alabama coach Nick Saban and Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt both said on Thursday that they voted for Florida Gators quarterback Tim Tebow as the preseason All-SEC first-team quarterback.

"I think that's what everybody else said so far," said Richt with a smile.

Richt is correct, of course. Seven coaches down and seven votes for Tebow. That leaves four coaches: Auburn coach Gene Chizik, LSU coach Les Miles, South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier and Tennessee coach Lane Kiffin.

Both Richt and Saban praised Tebow, calling him an excellent leader and a top-flight quarterback. (Saban discussed Tebow and the NFL and I'll post that a little later.)
