Sarah Palin now weighing in on Tebow; Tebow says he wasn't expecting 'buzz' over Super Bowl ad

MOBILE, Ala. -- Former Gators quarterback Tim Tebow wants to make one thing perfectly clear. He's not changing for anybody or anything.

On Wednesday, Tebow said that he wasn't expecting news of his pro-life Super Bowl ad to create such a national buzz but he wouldn't consider changing the ad or removing it.

"I definitely didn't think it would have this much hype -- this much buzz -- but, you know, it's something I believe in and I'll stand up for it," Tebow said. "It's me and my mom showing love for each other and that's pretty much what it's about."

Women's rights groups have protested the ad, claiming in a press release that it divides American when sports should bring the country together. On Wednesday, former GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin weighed in on Tim Tebow and his Super Bowl ad. LINK!

Tebow said on Wednesday that NFL executives have not asked him about the ad during one-on-one interviews. The former Florida Gators quarterback also said that if teams have a problem with him making taking a stand about an issue, then that's probably not a team that should draft him.

"I think if anything they like that I took a stand on what I believe and if they don't that's something that would hesitate them bringing me on then it probably wouldn't be a good fit for me in that first place because I'm never going to deny what I believe in and things like that just for a game," Tebow said.

People tune in 'cause you're a freak show. Like an exhibit at the zoo -- gila monsters are cool to look at too, but nobody actually wants one. Kind of like how the UM adminstration wanted nothing to do with that 30-30 thing. Popular for all the wrong reasons.

Sad that your measure of success is not "wins" anymore.

Funny how that was announced after signing day!

Talk about staff stability. Having three D coordinators in the span of A month. Has that ever happend before?

Hey Jo, The Herald needs to start negotiations with the Amazons for your safe return. Big happenings going on in Gainsville.

Edwards switching jobs again: Leaves Gators to become Bills defensive coordinator

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — George Edwards has abruptly left the Florida Gators to become the Buffalo Bills new defensive coordinator.

Edwards' hiring was announced by the Bills on Thursday, only 27 days after he had been hired to the same job under Gators coach Urban Meyer. University of Florida officials were not immediately available for comment regarding Edwards' departure.

Edwards becomes the latest addition to a staff assembled by Bills coach Chan Gailey, who took over two weeks ago.

Gailey was the Dallas Cowboys head coach in 1998 when he hired Edwards as a linebackers coach. Edwards has 19 years of coaching experience, including the past 12 in the NFL.

He spent the past five years as a linebackers coach with the Dolphins.

Looks like someone didn't want to deal with Gayturds and saw the post-Tebow writing on teh wall.
