Happy Campers at the University of Florida

After winning their second BCS title in three years, the Florida Gators are in a good position to come back next year and do it all over again. That’s a sweet sound to Gator fans all over; it’s probably not good news to the rest of the SEC. To carry it a step further, there’s probably not many other fans outside Gainseville who are happy about Tebow and some other key players returning for another year.

During a celebration held in Gainseville Sunday, Tim Tebow said he was ready to go for another title. I think the young man has a sense of humor and can bring great emotion to a crowd. After his speech and as he was heading back to his seat, he said

”Oh, and by the way, one more thing,” Tebow told the crowd, not to mention a statewide TV audience. “Let’s do it again — I’m coming back.”

All the pieces to the puzzle are not in place yet, but Tebow is a big part of it. It would be nice to have Percy Harvin and Brandon Spikes back for another year, but they didn’t let anyone know about their plans. Harvin meets with Coach Meyer this week and has to declare by next Sunday whether or not he will return; the same goes for Spikes.

Much has been written about Tim Tebow, and rightfully so. He will be the first to tell anyone, however, he played quarterback on a team whose players worked together as a well-oiled machine. Yes, he was honored by winning the offensive player of the BCS Championship game. He has a high-powered supporting cast, to be sure.

Here’s a video of what Coach Urban Meyer calls the play of the game. Ahmad Black intercepts Oklahoma’s Heisman quarterback Sam Bradford during the 4th quarter. What a play! You’ll probably want to watch it several times to get the feel of how spectacular that play was.

What about you? Would you like to see another BCS Championship title come to Gainseville?
