Tebow Milestones: Herschel Watch

As Ben Volin reminds, Tim Tebow is just 2 TDs from breaking Herschel Walker's SEC record for rushing TDs -- an absurd accomplishment on multiple levels:

*Tim Tebow is a quarterback. Dual-threat, but a QB all the same.

*Herschel Walker is... Herschel Freaking Walker. Only the greatest running back in the history of college football.

*Herschel did it in three years, but Tebow only played part-time as a freshman and it's only half-way through his senior year.

I love Volin's observation that there might be a little motivation for Urban Meyer to save the record-breaking TD for the week after this... against Georgia. Stomp on that, Richt.

And, as pointed out earlier this week, it's not like Florida doesn't have at least one other devastating option for running the ball into the end zone.
