Headlines: Tebow indulges in self-promotion
As the reigning Heisman Lord, Tim Tebow has a vote in who gets the award this season.
He said a few weeks ago that Texas quarterback Colt McCoy was on his radar screen, but apparently The Chosen One is prepared to choose himself if he can play up to his lofty standards in the last three games.
Now, voting for himself seems out of character for the humble Tebow, but let's look at his recent voting record. He wouldn't come out and say it, but his religious background screams McCain voter, meaning he isn't looking for change.
No spreading the wealth here!
Anyway, winning the Heisman may have had some negative effects on Tebow's play this season, but it was probably all the hard drugs and fast women during the offseason that slowed him down.
It's clear that Tebow is the underdog in this fight, and his best hope -- winning the SEC -- won't even help him.
The junior quarterback also said he believes South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier voted for him last season, something the 'Ole Ball Coach wouldn't admit to in the past. My guess is Spurrier votes for Tebow again this year.
(In case you were wondering, that post managed to use "Tebow" three times in two headlines and at least once in every single paragraph. Only CBS can do it better.)
Speaking of Spurrier, that old curmudgeon is heading back to The Swamp this weekend as the biggest underdog he has been since arriving in Columbia. You have to figure he has a few tricks up his sleeve.
One of those tricks is a two-QB system, partly led by everyone's favorite car-scratching maniac, Stephen Garcia, who we all know has some wheels.
Yea, Click Clack
Want tickets to the SEC Championship? Good luck, those corporate fat cats already have their greedy little fingers all over them.
Finally, pick a nickname for Jeffery Demps.
