Okay, Tebow's former coach at Florida, Urban Meyer, is the Buckeyes' head coach. I get it. There's just some stuff an SEC icon just doesn't do when the team you're speaking to is preparing to go up against the SEC champ. You don't see Tom Brady giving motivational speeches to the Crimson Tide, do you? (Yes, Brady's a little busy with the NFL right now. That's not the point.)
Hopefully this has more to do with Tebow's connection to Meyer than it does to any ill will against 'Bama from the 2009 SEC championship game. That wouldn't be very becoming of him if it were so.
