Tim Tebow is arguably the best quarterback in Florida history...
He was the one of the very few to every win the Heisman trophy his sophomore season. Tebow has been a crucial part of three national championship teams, and has started in two of those games.
The only game he did not start he was the x-factor of the game. He was used for decoys, short yardage plays, etc.
But don't forget last season when the Rebels spoiled your season, when they beat you on your home field!
Last season Junior QB Colt McCoy led the Texas Longhorns on a great adventure that ended in the dumps. McCoy was just on a different level last season, most would say.
He faced some of the biggest losses of his career, one against in-state rival Texas Tech. He was very close the whole year in the race for the Heisman trophy.
I just want to compare a few things between these two players.

I think this is enough to state my case Colt McCoy has been over looked for to long, while Tebow is like god to Gainesville.
All the fans worship him like he is something so great or the next best thing since Michael Jordan.
Wake up Florida!!! No matter how many championships Tebow has, Colt McCoy is still better than him.
McCoy is just better, period. He has more experience than Tebow, more wins than Tebow, probably more everything!!!
So next season you will probably be facing Colt in the BCS championship since your team has God (Tim Tebow).
Good luck to your Gators next season because Colt McCoy is rising to the top!
