GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Quarterback Tim Tebow said Tuesday he received hundreds of threatening messages on his cell phone leading up to Florida's game at top-ranked LSU.
They were the reason Tebow pretended to dial a cell phone after his first touchdown pass, a 2-yarder to Kestahn Moore that made it 10-0 in the second quarter.
Tebow said many of the messages contained physical threats and most included foul language.
Alligator Army investigators have been able to acquire the transcripts of several phone calls and texts left on Tim Tebow's cell phone. We warn you, there is adult language and people speaking in Cajun accents.

D. Mullen: Hey Tim, um, Coach Meyer and I decided not to script the first 10 plays. I hope you're not upset that we're not calling six consecutive QB draws to start the game. See you at practice.
