Tim Tebow, Florida Senior Day, Almost Brings Urban Meyer to Tears
The final few weeks of the college football season are big for several reasons. For the obvious reason, teams are fighting for bowl games and top spots in their conference Secondly, the last few weekends are full of rivalry games. Then of course, the final home game of the season for most teams is usually Senior Day where the program honors the departing seniors for their contributions to the team. Florida’s having its senior day on Saturday when they play Florida State. This senior day might be bigger than the average senior day considering this class has produced two national championship teams and a Heisman Trophy winner in Tim Tebow. Anyway, coach Urban Meyer got uber emotional several times during his Monday press conference. He started off by dispelling rumors that he’s headed to Notre Dame to replace Charlie Weis but got close to crying when discussing Tim Tebow and the late Michael Guilford. Check out the video:
The good thing about watching the entire video is that you get to see it wasn’t just Tebow that got Urban so emotional; Meyer became pretty somber when discussing the plans to honor Michael Guilford. In case you’re unaware who Guilford is, he was a member of this recruiting class but he died in a motorcycle crash two years ago. Anyhow, going back to Meyer’s comments about Notre Dame, this would be quite the offseason for Florida if they lost both Tebow and Meyer. Of course, they do still have John Brantley in waiting, so it’s not like Urban doesn’t have anything to come back for.
