Tim Tebow and Eric Berry: Just two guys bridging the gap of hate

GAINESVILLE -- UF quarterback Tim Tebow said last week that Tennessee strong safety Eric Berry was the best player in the Southeastern Conference. Now Berry is shooting back the compliments at Tebow.

"If he is Superman -- make that Batman, then I am Robin," Berry said. "That's a big compliment coming from him. He's a Heisman Trophy winner, has won national championships. What more can you say?"

Tennessee+v+Georgia+9vxpnD260Sjl What's this, you ask? Something other than disdain and verbal vomit coming from one of the warring factions of the UF-UT rivalry?

[PICTURED, A left cross from Eric Berry.]

Leave it to the players of Florida and Tennessee to show respect for one another. The coaches of either school are much too competitive for such triviality.

The SEC Media Days are next week and I guarantee you 10 grilled wings covered in Scooter sauce (if you've spent any amount of time in Gainesville, then you got that reference) that Tebow will be voted the preseason SEC offensive player of the year and Berry will be voted the preseason SEC defensive player of the year.

Tebow and Berry are well acquainted. As a freshman, Berry intercepted Tebow and returned it 96 yards for a touchdown. Last year, Tennessee's defense held UF to 243 yards of total offense (by far a season low for UF). Considering that statistic, some might question why the Golden Nugget out in Vegas set the early betting line for this season's UF-UT game so high. UF is going to be good and Tennessee has a new coach and a new defensive coordinator, but UF plus-27? I know Tennessee isn't expected to be much of anything this season other than a trusty dog every week, but a four-touchdown dog?

The youtube links were nutritious and filling Mr. Quixote.

The touchdown video will fire up anyone.

How funny will it be when Marbles gets the heave-ho and canefan starts hollering about Tubs.

Tubbs going to scUm would be the equivalent of Meyer going to FAU.

YOUR program is OLD NEWS

Cortez Gent is a better receiver than ANYTHING U have on your paper thin roster.

Intervention is what LOSERS watch. Big time.

a couple good years and you guys think that you are the greatest thing in sports.

Wait until Te-Roid takes his game to the CFL or someone's NFL practice squad. We shall than see how mighty the Gators are.

You know a cat 5 is brewing again. Your runs only happen when we are down, like the mid to late 90's and the last three years.

ACC in 2009
N.Championship in 2010 (#6, but thanks to a crooked ref, should be # 7)

Urban Liar to ND
Te-Roid to the CFL
UF back to mediocrity

Dockside rocks

"But I understand that U can't help Urselves Cane Stooges... Ur obsessed with having to defend Ur misguided thoughts (i.e. We'll Be Back Soon)..."

Cue braindead canefan.

Don't worry true college football fans, order will be restored. UM will once again be on top and UF will be back where they belong. Nowhere to be found!!!

U set em up like bowling pins Don.

We'll revisit His quote on post-OU Sunday.


Canefan STILL rolls out these words.
NONE of those words are associated with perrenial unranked teams. Regardless of the endless $hitstorm U have existed in for years, U still have this absurd assumption that U are"relevant." ALL the data paints a different picture.

The "U" … second tier football conference, lower tier stadium (that's only what, half full), looking at a .500 season in the face, by mid-season a lame duck coaching staff, loss of Dade recruiting stronghold, second class academics, ... yeah, its great to be a Cane! Keep living in the past, as that is all you will have for quite sometime.

btw-Urban has a monstrous EGO. He doesn’t want to be seen as a one-trick pony in G'ville (The Tebow benefactor). He will want to prove HE is responsible for NCs and the only way to do that is win one at UF without Timmy...and he will!
