GAINESVILLE -- My brother back home in Birmingham (who I think is turning into a Florida fan) brought this to my attention today: Did Tim Tebow have a slight concussion after colliding with Tennessee's Eric Berry two weeks ago?
After re-watching the video of the play, I can see my brother's concern. Tebow shakes his head briefly after the play as if to shake off the hit. A Florida team spokesman told me on Sunday that Tebow's concussion against Kentucky was the first of his career. It certainly wasn't Tebow's first blow to the head, though.
Against Tennessee, even Florida coach Urban Meyer was briefly concerned about Tebow after his collision with Berry. After the play, Meyer said he made a point to ask Tebow if he was OK. Florida called a timeout on first and goal two plays after Tebow's collision with Tennessee's strong safety.
