Although it might seem like a strange move since Tebow still has one year remaining with the Gators, Meyer said he didn't want to wait.And always remember, if you spend 15-20 minutes in Gainesville worshipping this plaque dedicated to Tim Tebow, your life will be better for it!

"I'm not a big fan of, 'Hey, let's wait down the road.' It was a speech that everybody in Gator Nation has a right to see on the side of the building."
