Florida Gators assistant's 'money is on' Tim Tebow playing

GAINESVILLE -- Florida Gators running back coach Kenny Carter doesn't know one way or the other if quarterback Tim Tebow is playing against LSU on Saturday but Carter knows one thing with a certainty: "All I know is he's Tim Tebow, and my money is on him."

Carter cut off a reporter on Monday when asked about the offensive game plan if Tebow can't play on Saturday against No.4 LSU.

"It's rather presumptive to think that Tim's not playing," Carter said. "He may be playing."

Assuming Carter was watching the same Kentucky game that I was, it certainly doesn't seem like much of a stretch to presume that Florida is preparing for the possibility that Tebow can't play. But, hey, what do I know? I'm just a reporter.

Carter went on to say that he didn't know if Tebow was at practice on Monday but he does know "they were trying to get him ready, and he'll be ready to go."

How confident is Carter in Tebow's go/no go status?

"When you have a concussion, they have to do tests and make sure you're ready to go," Carter said. "I'm very confident. He's Tim Tebow. I don't know that, so I can't answer that. All I know is he's Tim Tebow, and my money is on him."
