Tim Tebow is up


FLORIDA QUARTERBACK TIM TEBOW


  • "No, I don't know who did not vote for me."

  • "We've had the best off-season we've had since I've been at University of Florida."

  • On dealing with the spotlight by coming back to college: "I don't look at it as bad. I look at it as a blessing. I can wear something under my eyes and 90 million people will Google it. I wanted to come back and finish this thing strong."

  • On the backlash of so much attention: "You would like to go to a restaurant without reporters or people taking pictures. There's a lot of positive. There have been a lot of great things. There have been a lot of people who have been encouraged to not have an abortion because of the story of my mom. A lot of people have been encourage. I hope the stories have been an encouragement and not a hindrance on anybody."

  • On what the NFL people have told him: "They said very kind things. I was very humbled. That wasn't much of my decision factor (to return to school). It's something I looked at because Coach Meyer wanted me to do that. (Going to the NFL early) wasn't enough to give up the University of Florida. I don't know what would have been."

  • On not being a unanimous choice for the All-SEC team: "I'm a pretty self-motivated person. I'm not going to run sprints thinking about a coach who didn't vote for me."

  • On Meyer's (alleged) new-school style: "If you look at our team, it's not about a dink-and-dunk down the field. We could do three-yards-and-a-cloud-of-dust stuff. We have the toughness to do that. We take pride in that."

  • "Our mindset is not to go undefeated. We're not going to be heart-broken because we have a loss and still win the national championship. We'll take that."

  • On not playing Ole Miss this season: "We're not worried about facing Ole Miss or getting revenge or anything like that. We're worried about getting to Atlanta."

  • Should we go ahead and give LSU fans your phone number now?: "I know they'll be rowdy and ready to go when we get there."

  • Why can Mullen be successful at MSU: "His enthusiasm is going to create more enthusiasm. It'll make them hungry. I'll miss our little traditions. The little Friday games we played before the games. I'll miss that."

THAT'S A WRAP. That concludes Day Two of SEC Media Days.

I would just like to take the time to say Tim Tebow, Tim Tebow, and Tim Tebow. And by the way, Tim Tebow.

Talk about substance

Welcome, Schofunk! I don't know what your name means, but I dig it.

Who wants to play musical threads??

1:01 PM  
Blogger BigEZ said...

Roethlisberger press conference at 2 today if anyone is interested?

1:02 PM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

I'm confused, is it Saban or Tebow that is the Messiah?

1:02 PM  
Blogger Goddess said...

I'll play with you.

1:02 PM  
Blogger schofunk said...

It's been a great day not getting any work done following all the hooplah here on HABOTN and elsewhere.

Funk is a state of mind, ya know.

1:05 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Michael - I'm guessing that's code for "substance".


DL shouldn't have to work so hard :-(

1:06 PM  
Blogger Goddess said...

I like it. Lowered knows we can use more Funk on the HABOTN! Glad you're here.

1:06 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Funk- welcome first of all, secondly, it's just an odd first post, maybe you've posted more, hell, maybe you are Michael's alter ego :). HABOTN is in a funk today, or i'm in a funk. Probably a little of both.

1:07 PM  
Blogger scottie b in tennessee said...

check it out now...funk soul brotha.

welcome schofunk!

Goddess. love it.

1:08 PM  
Blogger Goddess said...

just play that funky music, white boy

1:08 PM  
Blogger Matt said...

I could go for some funky cold medina

1:09 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

wow, posts are disappering from the prior thread almost as quickly as they are appearing here.

1:09 PM  
Blogger Kristina said...

Eddie, what was so odd about his first post exactly? I must have missed it.

1:09 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Kristina - it was laced with potentially factual but undesirable opinion

1:11 PM  
Blogger BigEZ said...

Dear Lord, thou hast had enuff Tebow for thine year.

1:11 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

by "undesirable" I mean not what we want to happen.

1:11 PM  
Blogger BigEZ said...

Ill talk to you guys later today.

1:11 PM  
Blogger §teve From Columbia said...

We are just wanting to be the best we can be, as all you people should be. Everybody has a little Tebow in them and should look to express that Tebow. Be the best Tebow you can be.

1:12 PM  
Blogger Kristina said...

That's what I was thinking, THT.

I haven't been on a lot lately I admit, but it seems like the last few days there have been several "you didn't say something good about Auburn, you must be a bammer" posts. Not very HABOTN-y or at least what HABOTN used to be.

1:13 PM  
Blogger Goddess said...

Later EZ

I think Urban Meyer meant Dooley told him to tell that Bear joke. I wish I had heard the whole thing!

1:13 PM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

Kneels and looks with stars in his eyes up at the goodness that is Tebow

1:13 PM  
Blogger Matt said...

Jay, could you ask Tebow how to spell potatoes?

1:15 PM  
Blogger Jet said...

I'm glad that Tim Tebow has the foreskin - excuse me, I mean, foresight -- to be self motivated.

1:15 PM  
Blogger scottie b in tennessee said...

every blog post is better when you add a little Tebow.

MORE TEBOW! MORE TEBOW!

1:16 PM  
Blogger Goddess said...

oh my goodness, Jet

1:17 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

I didn't find anything odd about funk's first post ... or anything since then.

Auburn has flaws. Discussing them rationally is one of the things we do at the HABOTN.

1:17 PM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

Tebow=cowbell

Which explains the Ole Miss victory

1:17 PM  
Blogger Matt said...

Does anyone know when Bible study will end and Tebow will answer some questions?

1:17 PM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

or is that Miss State?

1:17 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

I think Tim Tebow is fantastic. I sure wish I was like him, even minus the football.

1:18 PM  
Blogger Goddess said...

Could everyone please hush. I'm trying to listen to Tebow's views on abortion at the SEC media event.

1:18 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Tebow for President in 2024!!!

1:20 PM  
Blogger Jet said...

For the record, I am seeking nominations for a new honorific to require people to use in front of my name. I'll choose a winner at a later date.

Sincerely,

"_________ Jet"

1:21 PM  
Blogger Goddess said...

and he cares about the inmates nobody else cares about

STOP THE TEBOW HATE!

1:22 PM  
Blogger Goddess said...

Jet. There is only one choice.

Guvnah.

1:22 PM  
Blogger Norm said...

THT - Tebow should pick $aban as his running mate. That'd be a winner for sure.

Goddess - you shouldn't bring up such topics on a friendly blog. Take it back woman.

Keep Hate Alive.

1:22 PM  
Blogger schofunk said...

It wasn't my first post.

I have sensed some edginess among AU folks lately. TEveryone should watch this Joe Cocker video of his Woodstock performance of "With A Little Help From My Friends" with subtitles. It's sure to lift some spirits.

1:24 PM  
Blogger scottie b in tennessee said...

in case it isn't clear, i love me some Timmy Tebow. nothing i post is a negative about that guy. i wish he was my brother-in-law.

secondly, i nominate "Supreme Chancellor Jet", or a simpler "Councilman Jet".

1:24 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

Reed, Seastruk, Dyer, Dixon, Hurad (?) will be at AU come signing day.

Be bold and step out. Unlike Longshore and McKnight (two losers in Montgomery) I'll stand by that statement until I retract it.

1:24 PM  
Blogger Goddess said...

First, I thought that said, "Take it, black woman." Then I laughed.

Second, take what back?

1:24 PM  
Blogger ehyou said...

Every time I hear or see "Tebow" a little bit of my soul dies.

1:25 PM  
Blogger depressedAUfan said...

"I'd like to run over Saban in a Jet"

1:25 PM  
Blogger James in B'ham said...

I just can't buy in to all of the UF love by the pundits and media...

Things are almost TOO good for UF this year to be true. I have a sneaking feeling that it is all going to implode on them at some point during the season...

1:26 PM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

How about a new suffix Jet? something like Jetbow perhaps

1:26 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Hey, I admitted I was in a funk. Lots of time away from the family and all work will do that to a person. If you haven't gotten your comment in on my funk comment, then please do so now so I can go enjoy a Funky Cold Medina!

1:26 PM  
Blogger Goddess said...

WTC it's because you have the calves and lats that Longshore and McNight will never have.

Way to step out there!

1:26 PM  
Blogger Sean said...

The 2009 Florida hype reminds me of 2005 USC hype. It didn't get them until the end...

1:26 PM  
Blogger Norm said...

Your 1:18 post.

1:27 PM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

What about All Being of Time Space and Dimension Jet. Okay so its a little long.

1:27 PM  
Blogger depressedAUfan said...

I just can't get over the fact that UF has 21 out of their top 22 players back on defense. Unbelievable.

1:28 PM  
Blogger Goddess said...

ohhhh...Tebow said it, not me!

1:29 PM  
Blogger Sean said...

UF, Texas, OU and others are the reasons Bammer won't win an MNC this year. They seem to omit those folks when speaking of the upcoming season.

1:29 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

They don't want any part of me.

1:29 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

SO the Grant commit makes headlines on AL.com and our 4* commit doesn't. no media bias there either

1:31 PM  
Blogger Goddess said...

Yeah, don't beat up on Eddie! Sheesh. Say no to the drama. Football is nigh!

1:31 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

LaDarius Owens is set to announce next Friday. Should be good news for our Tigers.

1:31 PM  
Blogger Goddess said...

HAHAHA @ "they don't want any part of me"

I can so hear you saying that.

1:32 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

I moved the Goodwin story to the top of the blog. Feel free to post there as well.

1:32 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Thread overload. I think my head is about to explode.

1:33 PM  
Blogger Norm said...

Sports Writer Tate - please don't encourage double-thread posting. I can't keep up and it may tend to confuse my tiny brain.

1:34 PM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

FOOOOOOOTBALLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

ok I'm better now.

1:35 PM  
Blogger Sean said...

Everyone to the other thread!

1:36 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

depressed- so what? Look at all the players we have back on offense.

1:36 PM  
Blogger schofunk said...

I think I'm gonna fast and pray until the OL's start committing.

1:36 PM  
Blogger §teve From Columbia said...

schofunk, I hope these folks weren't too intolerant of you. Many of them know me here and know that I am very tolerant of anyone that agrees with me.
