    Which Southeastern Conference coach do you suppose would most want to rile up Tim Tebow? Lane Kiffin? Nick Saban? Steve Spurrier? Ah, so many choices.

    That question will be asked over the rest of the summer, because in the coaches' balloting announced today Tebow was not a unanimous choice for the All-SEC preseason team.

    Coaches were not allowed to vote for members of their own teams and according to the Gainesville Sun there were only three unanimous selections — LSU's Ciron Black, Tennessee's Eric Berry and Alabama's Julio Jones.

    Tebow and seven other Gators were named to the first team.

    There's really nothing else happening in sports. I get that Tebow is a good quarterback, but really, does it even matter that it's not unanimous? For a pre-season poll that's the very definition of pointless? That coaches can't have their own opinions? That the media's Tebow-mania has gone to ridiculous proportions?

    I heard Tebow's sweat can cure cancer. Just imagine what some other bodily fluid could do.

    P.S. I realize that I am being hypocritical by posting this. icon_confused.gif

    I think college football polls should only start after, say, 4 games of the season...once teams have proven themselves on the field. Also, it would encourage teams to schedule more competitive games at the beginning of the season.

    It was the Ole Ball Coach. I thought it was Kiffin at first honeslty.

    Yea I know it's crazy!

    I'm gonna miss UF. Tebow had a class right before mine in the same room last fall and would pass by me one the way out the door. *Drool* icon_biggrin.gif

    Sorry my reply was a little off-topic...I think pre-season polls in general are pointless (as the OP mentioned)

    As if the sport needs more hype determining who is good or not....still, I love college football and the passion the fans have is one of the reasons why.

    Here's hoping UofM does not suck this year.
