Unabashed Man-Love Day for Florida #Gators Tim #Tebow at The Swamp (With touching photographic tribute!)

GAINESVILLE -- Thousands of Florida Gators fans lined the front entrance of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium on Saturday for quarterback Tim Tebow's final Gator Walk. Five state troopers and two local policemen escorted Tebow through a mob of fans around 1:30 p.m. No.1 Florida (11-0) hosts Florida State (6-5) at 3:30 p.m.

In three years I have never seen a group of more passionate Gators fans than today for Tebow's final home game in The Swamp -- not even after the national championship game in 2008. My only point of reference for such a festive atmosphere (and congested atmosphere) is Mardi Gras in New Orleans. It's one big party and everyone --man, woman and child -- is here to say thanks to Tebow. Like these guys from Florida's Panhandle (Crestview, L.A.) who were brave enough to display man love for Tebow on their chests.

Luv u, Tim! The Lord giveth, the Lord taketh away.

tebow is a great role model! I'm only 14, but I will always think of him as someone to look up to. you know he is really good when people have to make up bad things about him to make him seem bad. WE'LL MISS YOU TEBOW!

Tebow, do the right thing and congratulate Bama. I understand your tears. Going to the NFL making 3 million a year is a hard life. No really I understand LOL
