It appears that Florida Gators Coach Urban Meyer is back.

Today it is purported that after practice, Coach Meyer confronted a reporter from the Orlando Sun-Sentinel regarding an article that quoted WR Deonte Thompson stating that John Brantley was a "real quarterback" compared to former QB Tim Tebow.

Frankly, I can see why Meyer is aggravated.  Thompson's quote could have been interpreted two ways, and it was apparent that whoever wrote the article was thinking the worst.

How else can a reporter get people to read his or her article, right?

The mistake was making Tim Tebow the subject of the potentially derogatory remark.

Tim Tebow is immortal in the eyes of the Gator Nation, and Coach Urban Meyer is the current King.  You can rest assured that Meyer will always defend the person that is Tim Tebow now and forever.

Let this be a valuable lesson for those that may think of attempting to tarnish the legend of Tim Tebow.
