"I don't like anyone talking about coach Meyer. I'll always have coach Meyer's back in anything...Coach Meyer doesn't cheat. He does the right thing. When people say something against him, I'll say that's not true. He doesn't know what he's talking about."
-- Tim Tebow, on Lane Kiffin's remarks about Urban Meyer, which Tebow had previously tossed off as really no big deal. The fact is: They are a VERY big deal. Kiffin didn't dis Tebow. He didn't dis Florida. He dissed Meyer -- Tebow's father figure in football. Get ready for pain in payback.
(Actually, Tebow said Georgia's end-zone disrespect in 2007 was much more motivating for the '08 beat-down than Tennessee's trash-talk this past offseason. "The Georgia thing was a lot different than coach Kiffin and the things that he said. I'm not going to harp on that and don't even want to talk about it much. It's not a big deal. It's just someone talking.")
For his part, this was Urban's quote about using Tennessee's talking to motivate the Gators:
"We'll do what we have to do."
Seriously: This is going to be a beat-down. I'm going to the game, and couldn't be more giddy about witnessing the prospects first-hand.
