Tebow Quote of the Day: Expectations

Following on yesterday night's post about expectations and adding context to that "23-13" quote by Tebow:

"We’re going to enjoy every moment. I enjoyed that last game. Every game I'm going to play I'm going to enjoy it. I don't have that many more here....

"We're not going to get stressed out about what's going to happen or where we're going to be. We're just going to play every game hard like it’s our last one....

"If we win 23-13, we're going to take it and we're going to be happy about it."

Not destroying Tennessee -- and Tebow rightly pointed out that if not for his goal-line fumble, the game is 30-6 and likely even more by the end -- was arguably the best thing to happen to Florida:

It re-focuses them on the important thing: HOW they win is of little consequence as compared to THAT they win.

  1. I completely agree. Every season that the Gators are ranked highly pre-season, we seem to need a reality check against high expectations. Last year, that was a loss to Ole Miss. This year, I'm hoping it's the win to Tennessee that seemed to disappoint many. A win's a win.
