That was an insane few minutes. As Tim Tebow lay motionless on the field, I admit to fearing the worst. I have never been so relieved -- at least about a sports event -- to see him sit up.
It may "only" be a concussion -- his "bell rung," as the team relayed to ESPN; it may be more. The speculation will be rampant. Even a concussion is a big deal. The image of him throwing up while being taken out of the stadium in a cart was, itself, pretty disturbing.
Here's the video (which will probably be yanked down shortly):
Florida's win over Kentucky? An afterthought. Tebow's assault on Herschel Walker's SEC career rushing TD record? Superficial.
It is ironic that a day that began dominated by news that Tim Tebow might have the flu (overblown) ended with news that Tim Tebow was knocked out of the game with a concussion.
Not overblown... at all. Scary stuff.
More notes from today's games:
*So it turns out that Miami was even more overrated than Ole Miss.
*And it turns out that Cal was even more overrated than Miami.
*And it turns out that Penn State was more overrated than all of 'em.
*Florida State? Ugh: "Rated" doesn't begin to cover where they belong.
*Alabama affirmed for me that they are the No. 1 team in the country.
*Mississippi State should have won that game over LSU. Sucks for them.
*Cincy did nothing to show they aren't a Top 5 team.
*Same with Houston.
*My (mild) upset special came through: GT over UNC.
*If resume matters, then I'm not ranking unbeaten Michigan in my Top 25.
*Through halftime, does Penn State look like a Top 5 team? Please: Hardly.
*Kudos to my college classmate Doug Lesmerises for going on GameDay and successfully arguing on behalf of "resume ranking" in the AP Top 25.
