rastis, to thank God for something is not to acknowledge Him having a hand in the outcome. When Tim thanks God he is simply saying thank You for giving me the opportunity...
To all you haters out there...
We are ready to have any rational, intelligent discussion if you can put away the hate and vulgarities for awhile...
Go Gators...
To thank God for the win implies that you are thanking him for winning. To win against another team, is to beat them, dis them, teach them a lesson so to say. Therefore, rational logic suggest one must expect God to work in myterious ways against the other team to allow you the opportunity to win.....

I can hear the pre game prayer from here asking God to help you win, like King David in the Bible before a battle-Whats the difference? Either way, one might say God helped me win. So Tebow, believes his God help him win over the evil Tide, right? Twist it to fit you own beliefs, if he thank God for the Opportunity, why didn't he say that? GET REAL! And thank God!

I'm tiered of all this "God" talk. Enough already. God don't favor any paricular team. And when Tebow thanks Him he is thanking him for the opportunity to play the game and also thanking him for giving him satisfaction in what he loves to do. Everyone has a passion in life. And win or lose you have to thank the Lord. And stop making fun of God because he will not be mocked. Have some respect for the One who owns Heaven as his throne and Earth as his footstool.

Trivia question for you, which NCAA Division I "championship" earns more for the participating schools, Footsball Bowl games or March Madness, NCAA Basketball tournament?

I do believe the footsball people should wake up & smell the coffee, so to speak.....

I for one think the only 2 good things Saban did for us were:
1. Select Ronnie Brown over Cadillac Williams
2. Leave.

He can coach when he is able to select his squad without the restrictions of a draft or salary cap or free agency but as we saw, when he can't select a dream team, he is a slack jawed, mouth breathing moron.

Note how tough Tony Sporano's team plays, note how the tide ran out when it got down to crunch time in the fourth quarter. The coach can't make the plays but he can establish the culture and character of a team.

All that don't matter. A playoff needs to be implemented to determine the best team in College Football.

Chokelahoma's defeated teams which include five ranked teams and the Texas team they lost to do not compare to UF's defeated teams in Georgia and Ole Miss.

Considering that your team is a shadow of its former self and shows little hope of improving (you seem to have a standing invitation to the Emerald Bowl!), we'll get our 6th ring before you get yours.

Poor jealous scUM fan! Enjoy that Emerald Bowl! Be sure you show how much you support your team and actually travel to the game, for a change.

Hey, John, of course, Saban was really a proper gentleman according to you and WHO ELSE... his wife and daughter who were sent out (a la Isiah Thomas) to lobby for the sins of the man, the lying scum. You remind me of people who went to a place could not make it because they were mediocre at best and now have resorted to calling a place a dump and a garbage... but look, if you feel that Tuscaloosa beats South Florida then let's talk to the Tourism board to divert all the tourists to go to Tuscaloosa.

All that Saban had to do was say he was leaving and rather than get into a Roger Clemens, Rafael Palmeiro mode and start complicating the fact that HE COULD NOT COACH IN THE PROS, HE WAS NOT GOOD ENOUGH TO COACH IN THE PROS!

You know UM has 5 National titles but if they played in the SEC during those years I doubt they would have won one title.Look what happened when they decided to join a weak ACC conference.

If the phantom interference flag would not have been thrown a long time after the last play of that National Championship game in which the UM got robbed by a phantom interference no one saw, then the UM would have another title and COKER would have been better regarded. if if if if

If the UM did not have right now the greatest number of NFL players at 47 then if if if, then FSU would have the greatest with about 10 less than the UM.

AND I AM NOT AN UM alumn but when anyone comes out to defend Saban and to throw mud at others, I say you must be a lonely person in the world you live in. Saban also left MICHIGAN AND LSU and according to your logic then Michigan State and LSU were also scum an garbage and that is why Saban left them for a better place ..... South Florida

LOL-I love your logic Fair Hooker, well said. Saban-huh, he got what he deserved this past week. At least he took that like a man. However, the method he left the Fins is shameful for a supposed professional. Dis the Fins or S. Fla, that is only deflection by Saban excuse makers. A failure in the pros, plus he has greatly benefitted by the work of others, that's why he moves alot on short notice, he knows he will be exposed.... Thanks again for setting these deflectors straight. When the Tide's faithful start murmering-he's gone in the middle of the night u-haul and all.

Rumors are that Saban left so quick in the middle of the night that he left behind the family pets. Others said in jest that he left a family cat behind Don Shula's steak house restaurant to compensate THE DON for having really helped in getting Mike Shula fired at Bama... I believe that Saban is playing mostly with Shula's recruits still.

It is a well known and common practice in the very high level world of business that a lot of the top guns in the corporate world come and go and make a bunch of moves to make lots of noise in the short term, make results look great by creating a short sighted program that emphasizes the now and then when things starts going bad, they are already gone to another place promoted and with high decorations and when the manure hits the fan they say, well, it never happened while I was there.

Saban just keeps jumping from place to place in a similar fashion to those corporate managers. It is a bit different but the mentality is the same, as soon as he sees something that will destroy his legacy or create problems, he is gone. WITH THE DOLPHINS SABAN WAS TOTALLY INCOMPETENT, UNABLE TO HANDLE THE JOB AT HAND. Could not handle the media, the players, not even throwing a red flag in Pittsburgh and that started the mess because he could not stand criticism from the red flag incident.

IF WE WANT TO KNOW SOME OF THE VERY VERY VERY BAD THINGS IN THIS COUNTRY, well there is one of them, that a scum bucket like Nick Saban is actually a person with power and a leader of young men. There is something wrong there because his thrashing of LSU and Michigan State, where he left in bad flavors and manners, should say that this guy is not fit to coach at a state funded institution of learning. HE SHOULD BE IN THE PROS WHERE WINNING IS THE ONLY THING ...yet he could not do it.

I have been hiding but I heard that the Loria family, and their Samsonite son in law they carry around as in Albatross, are going to build a glorious ballpark as they finagled a midnight deal with 2 Banana Mayors who are not well like even by their own constituents and so prosperity will rain down in the Miami community because the great Samson and the 2 Mayors are going to take the taxpayer coffers for an inspection under close doors. When that ball park is built, I am going to have a lewd and lascivious act where I, FAIR HOOKER, promises to play with the corndogs between my legs to amuse the crowd that last year was amused by CHEAP TRICK FAT MEN on opening day. After all that is said and done and the ball park is built and no money is left for the next 50 years, then I might be the only one making any money out of that deal... oh, and of course, the Lorias will be able to sell the team for MANY MANY more dollars than it is worth because the Miami Mayors and the citizens (that were not allowed to vote) gave the Loria Millionares a free stadium.

All of that in the midst of a horrible economy and the country floating around like a shangai PAPALOTE (KITE).
