Any attempts to speculate about whether Tebow will play is just silly -- unless you're a doctor who is privy to his medical records. It's probably safe to say that if Tebow practices he will play. Beyond that, who knows?
The stage is being set for Tebow to add to his warrior's mystic, returning to action after two weeks of football inactivity to lead the Gators in one of the most hostile of road environments.
It figures to be one anxious week of waiting for Florida fans.
In case you missed it
And unless you were in Sun Bowl Stadium Saturday night, you did because UTEP's 58-41 upset of then-No. 12 Houston was not on television.
Not sure what is more stunning, the Cougars' loss to a team that ranked last in the nation in total offense coming in or the fact that with all the television coverage college football gets these days, a game involving a ranked team was not on the tube.
It probably won't happen, but there needs to be a change in the way penalties are called for excessive celebration, such as the one Georgia's A.J. Green got hit with that helped LSU come back to win in Athens. For a game to be influenced by a spontaneous show of emotion, is ridiculous.
Wisconsin (5-0) is the only undefeated team not ranked in the AP poll this week. The Badgers don't have an eye-catching victory, but their lack of support among voters is more about a lack of respect for the Big Ten.
The leading rusher in the nation is ....... Darius Marshall of Marshall. If you knew that without looking it up, you likely live in or around Huntington, W.Va.
The undercard for Florida-LSU is enticing, too. No. 3 Alabama goes to No. 20 Mississippi. The Rebels have not played up to their preseason hype, but all sins will be forgiven with a victory against the Tide.
