    I have hated the Gators for a long time, and with lots of passion. Tebow is such a great kid, he has me cheering for Florida this year. I can hardly believe it. And I hope he is okay soon. That was pretty scary. He did not even move when he lay on the ground.

    Matt, did you see the hit? That could have broken his neck.

    I was hospitalized for a concussion back in high school after a car accident (part of it was because they thought my skull was fractured). So it’s not unheard even for normal people, much less sports stars.
