Tim Tebow as George Gipp -- Florida, taking a page from Notre Dame, is deeply interested in building its own myth machine. So interested, in fact, they've dedicated a plaque immortalizing senior-to-be quarterback Tim Tebow's speech after losing to Ole Miss last year. It is titled, simply, "The Promise." You may remember it for the line, "you will never see a team play harder than we will the rest of the season. God bless."
Get a grip guys, he's not dead yet. He's not even out of college. Nor can we enlist this generation's Ronald Reagan, whoever that might be, to play him although at this point we have to assume Florida's scouring the independent film festivals looking for him.
