Today's biggest headline: Urban Meyer said he thinks that Tim Tebow will play against LSU.
Meyer on Tebow playing against LSU: "I think so, but I don't know that."
Let's be clear: Meyer THINKS Tebow will play, but doesn't know decisively...yet.
This is less than 48 hours after Tebow suffered the concussion. At the very least, you would hope for a "Let's wait and see." But it certainly offers a glimpse into Meyer's state of mind. If they are already floating the idea now, 13 days away, it can easily become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Here was a money quote: "Our medical and athletic training staff will continue to monitor Tim and evaluate how much rest and recovery he needs." It is opaque -- necessarily so.
