Tebow, Florida Escape With Homecoming Win

I'm about to get on a red-eye flight from Las Vegas back to New York, but I'm still filled with adrenaline from Florida's win over Arkansas. Or should that be "near-loss to Arkansas?"

Let's be clear: Championship teams win games -- even ones they aren't supposed to. They find a way to win, where others stumble.

That was Florida today. Frankly, that was Tim Tebow today. The turnovers weren't pretty. The early game plan for him wasn't effective.

But when it mattered, Tebow stepped up: With that huge TD toss to Thompson. With those scrambles. With those key completions on the final drive to set up the game-winning FG.

This team is now the epitome of that "game manager" idea from last week: They do what it takes to win. It's not pretty. But it works.

More later.
