- The Gainesville Sun asks the question we will hear for the next several days.

- Where would the best Gator writer be after Tebow got knocked out and sent to the hospital? That hospital's chapel. The Orlando Sentinel's Jeremy Fowler didn't find any Tebows there, but was able to determine Tim Tebow was supposed to check into ICU (presumably due to having a head injury) but did not. Fowler probably has the best game report too.

- The two non-health responses that will come out of this are; did UK celebrate too much when they knocked out Tebow and should Tebow have been in the game? In regards to Kentucky, they celebrated as much as anyone who has smacked Tebow. When they realized Tebow wasn't bouncing up, the building went silent. I don't hold any ill will towards UK and the hit was clean. Meyer has said after the game that Tebow would have been removed after that drive, giving Tebow 8 drives in the game. I am more protective of Tebow than UF's coaching staff, but Tebow played the same amount in the Kentucky game last season. Hindsight is 20/20 and the decision to allow Tebow a second 3rd quarter drive now looks like a bad idea.

- The St. Pete Times relays this quote from Urban, which is both morbid and inspiring;

Meyer said as he walked toward Tebow as he lay on the ground, he felt the same anxiety as if he were going out to check on his own son. He said his knees shook as he approached Tebow.

"I grabbed his hand, and he grabbed my hand," Meyer said. "I looked at him, and I said 'How are you doing?' And he said, 'Good.' He asked me, 'Did I hold onto the ball?' Typical Tebow. 'Did I hang onto it?' I said, 'Yeah,' and he said, 'What play was that?' And I said, 'Stick lion.' And he said, 'Okay.'

"And then I looked at him and said, 'It's great to be a Florida Gator.' And he winked at me and said, 'It's great to be a Gator.' "
