Tim Tebow was in Winter Park, FL Thursday where he agreed to serve a one-year appointment on the Gator Boosters board. Tebow spoke for an hour about Florida football and facing current University of Florida coach Will Muschamp when he was defensive coordinator for Auburn back in 2007. But when asked about what other NFL players thought about the Florida Gators, Tebow had a rather entertaining story to tell regarding Brady Quinn.
So many guys come up to me and say, ‘What’s it like to be at the University of Florida? What’s it like to be a Gator?’ The first thing I think of is, ‘Wouldn’t you like to know.’ … I had a teammate at Denver who played the same position as me and he went to the University of Notre Dame. He would brag about his university, how great it was. Most of us in the locker room were like, ‘C’mon, we all had opportunities. We chose not to go there.’ … But he talked so much about his university that it became easy. I’d say, ‘Your whole team had one guy who ran under a 5.0 40 [yard dash]. Our kicker ran under 5.0.’
It’s very funny how he referenced Brady Quinn and you just know that Irish fans will have plenty to say about the 40 yard dash joke.
