Gator Report on Why TimTeblog.com?

With the launch of the blog last week, several local and national college football writers have picked up on it, including Holly Anderson from Yahoo's must-read Dr. Saturday, ESPN's terrific Bruce Feldman and the PB Post's sharp Gators beat reporter Ben Volin.

You can find the links collected on the right side under "Coverage of TimTeblog."

The St. Pete Times' Antonya English had a post about the blog right out of the gate -- framed interestingly around the potential for the "Tebacklash" (per AOL Fanhouse's MDS, covered here earlier this week).

She circled back with me to get a little more context for why I started the blog -- the launch post of the site on Wednesday said a lot, but I elaborate on it for her here.

This gist, and it's not like you haven't seen it before:

There is no bigger story in sports this fall than Tim Tebow and Florida, and I think that kind of interesting story merits my (mostly) journalistic coverage as a stand-alone "beat."
