Gator Great Tim Tebow Previews SEC Championship Game

The Florida Gators (10-2) and Alabama Crimson Tide (11-1) will square off in the SEC Championship in Atlanta this weekend and former Gator Tim Tebow shared his thoughts on Florida’s recent performance.

Tebow, who won the Heisman as a Gator in 2007 and led the team to the 2009 BCS National Championship (the second in Tebow’s time at the University of Florida), is now an analyst on the SEC Network.

Tebow spoke on the struggle of sophomore quarterback Treon Harris over the past few weeks. Tebow believes that the blame for the Gators offensive struggles isn’t solely on Harris, citing the offensive line and scheme for the source of the issues.

Harris has been mostly underwhelming in the wake of quarterback Will Grier’s suspension, putting up his worst game against the Seminoles, where he completed 19 of 38 passes for 138 yards and no touch downs with a net loss of 5 rushing yards on 11 attempts

In addition to to defending the young quarterback, Tebow also provided some advice to Harris, stating he needs to quicken his release and trust his play makers.

Tebow is no stranger to success at the quarterback position. The Heisman winner had  over 9,000 passing yards an 88 passing touchdowns and had almost 3,000 rushing yards and 57 touchdowns on the ground.

Tebow also mentioned that the Gator fans have high expectations for their offense, even though the team is built around defense and establishing the run which won’t always result in explosive offensive touchdowns.

Kick off for the SEC Championship is set for 4:00 on Saturday. You can find coverage of the game on ESPN Gainesville starting at noon on Saturday.
