"Tim Tebow crying."

The above term has been the hottest Google search trend according to Google Trends, and there's a good reason behind people scouring the Web for articles about, and video (see below) of, Tim Tebow's tears:

People want to see Tebow fail.

The last time sports fans saw Tim Tebow cry, it was after a shocking 2008 loss to Ole Miss. Well, we all know what happened after that -- Tebow gave the speech, the Gators caught fire and won the National Championship, and No. 15 has been praised ever since.

But as the clock ticked down in Florida's defeat at the hands of Alabama Saturday, there was Tebow, down on one knee, crying on the sideline.

And this time there was no speech about redeeming himself and the team. There will be no stretch of games to re-establish the Gators' dominance on the SEC and the rest of college football.

Instead, the tears will provide fodder for Tebow's detractors through the bowl season, and even up until the NFL Draft.

Yes, it was against a very good Alabama team that played it's best game of the year, and it was with a Florida team with far less weapons than last year's squad, but Tim Tebow has finally fallen short.
