Urban Meyer's Week 3 Champions Club

GAINESVILLE -- On defense, Florida coach Urban Meyer said on Monday that strong safety Ahmad Black and linebacker Ryan Stamper were co-defensive players of the game against Tennessee.

Stamper led the Gators with 12 tackles and moved from weak-side linebacker to middle linebacker for injured All-American Brandon Spikes. Black was second on the team with 11 tackles and had a fourth-quarter interception that effectively ended the game.

Meyer's other defensive champions included corneback Joe Haden (eight tackles, one interception) and cornerback Janoris Jenkins (two tackles).

Offensively, Meyer's Week 3 champions club included offensive linemen Mike and Maurkice Pouncey.

Maurkice Pouncey was named the SEC's offensive lineman of the week after grading out at 93 percent against Tennessee. Offensive lineman Marcus Gilbert of Coral Springs also graded out a champion, according to Meyer.

Receivers David Nelson, Brandon James and Riley Cooper were named to Meyer's champions club and quarterback Tim Tebow and running back Jeff Demps were Meyer's offensive co-players of the game.

Despite an interception and a fumble, Tebow turned in a Herculean effort against the Vols. Demps rushed for 31 yards on four carries and had a seven-yard touchdown run despite playing with a fever.

Palm Beach Post is reporting that ABC will make a decision no later than Sunday on whether to broadcast the Oklahoma game at 3:30 or 8:00 pm PRIMETIME!!!!!!

Translation: If we beat VT, it will play at 8, if we lose 3:30!!!!!!!

I bet Gameday will be there if they play at 8!!!! Herbstreit LOVES us, and he's a Buckeye!!!!!!!!!

I cannot help but feel giddy about being "The Darlings" of college football, while the Gators are in the midst of their self proclaimed "Greatest Season of all time"!
