HOOVER, Ala. — Steve Spurrier cleared up the biggest mystery swirling around the Southeastern Conference when he said it was South Carolina that left Tim Tebow off the preseason all-SEC ballot.

The Gamecocks coach said today at the SEC's media days that the director of football operations filled out the ballot in his stead and voted for Mississippi's Jevan Snead.

The other coaches picked Tebow, Florida's do-everything quarterback and the Heisman Trophy winner two years ago.

Spurrier said he was embarrassed about it and has already apologized to Tebow. He said the SEC has let him amend the ballot to add Tebow.

The former Gators coach, who called Tebow the best football player in the country, said he has never filled out a preseason All-SEC ballot himself.

Yeah, because he doesn't have his own championships to live vicariously through. Are you a complete moron?

Spurrier needs to be in a old

Spurrier needs to be in a old folks home, talking to the other fossils about the good old days when he used to win games... at florida. I'm just glad, now florida is mad at tennessee and now sc, maybe UGA can fly under the gaytors radar this year.
