Crazy day of stories involving Florida Gators includes Tebow reportedly being told to "Shut the BLANK up!" about a prayer

GAINESVILLE -- A pretty bizarre day for the Florida Gators. Here's a run down.

1. Ray Shipman, the SEC's men's basketball scholar athlete of the year, is transferring from Florida. Shipman's father told the Miami Herald some interesting things on Wednesday. The full story will be in the print edition of The Herald on Thursday and on MiamiHerald.com later today.

2. Former UF basketball player Walter Hodge, whose jersey is hanging up in the Gators' practice gym, is apparently selling his 2006 national championship ring on ebay for $12,500.

3. According to ProFootballTalk.com, a prospect at the NFL Combine told former UF quarterback Tim Tebow to "Shut the BLANK up!" when Tebow asked a group of players to pray before taking the Wonderlic. LINK! What an absolute jerk that guy must be. Wouldn't want him on my team.

"What an absolute jerk that guy must be. Wouldn't want him on my team."
You have no idea what the real story is to be labeling others. What if the the instructor said the test has begun, clock ticking, and Tebag asked for a prayer...tick, tick, tick...

What a typical gator fan you are.

A prayer before a freakin test??? Shove it, Tebow. Pray by yourself.

why is this important. Tebow does'nt care what people care about him.why should we. Tebow still gonna be tebow

Yo Urban Cryer

Who are you

Did Timmy cry Jo...we want the REST of the story...

Did tebow ever think that there might be Jewish, Athiest (etc) football players??

Listen I'm all for his cause, but do it in a respectful manner.

Do I hear $10,000? I'm broke. My Florida education got me nowhere

Regarding #3 -- don't think I would have jumped in on the prayer circle, however, it's peculiar the "prospect" is still anonymous to this day. Given that the overwhelming reaction is that TT went over the line (and his praying didn't help his wunderlic performance) you would think that guy would have put his hand up and claimed to be the one to put TT in his place (and claimed his media prize). He's either a coward (doubtful) or the story is mythical-over-embellished-based-on-anecdotal-anti-TT sentiment (more likely).

Only haters are making a big deal about this "story" whether true or not. They grasp at anything to try & put Tebow and the Gators down, how pathetic.
