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.
