Former QB Tim Tebow: Florida lacks identity, leadership on offense

Former Heisman Trophy winning-quarterback Tim Tebow let loose on his former team Tuesday, saying Florida doesn’t have an identity and lacks leadership on offense.

Tebow, now an analyst for the SEC Network, appeared on 1010 XL Radio in Jacksonville and had several critical thoughts after the Gators were routed at home 42-13 by Missouri on Saturday despite holding the Tigers to 119 yards of total offense. Florida was doomed by turning the ball over six times.

“It was tough to watch, if you’re a Gator fan it was not easy to watch,” Tebow said.

Tebow said he hopes that the team can rally with the “our backs are against the wall” mentality for the rest of the season.

“I don’t think that the offense has an identity right now, and I don’t think that they

know what they want their identity to be,” Tebow said. “One of the biggest problems on the offense is leadership. You need to have something to motivate you, something to give you an edge…they’re (Gators) not out of the SEC East.”

The offense, which has been an issue all season, is 119th out of 125 FBS teams in total yards at 368 per game. Florida’s also averaging 28 points per game.

Florida head coach Will Muschamp’s job security has been a major question lately. He is 25-19 in three-plus seasons with the program and Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley said Monday that he will continue to evaluate Muschamp throughout the entire season.

Florida (3-3, 2-3 SEC) has a bye in Week 9 before playing No. 9 Georgia in Jacksonville on Nov. 1.

They need to get hyped and play with a chip on their shoulder when they come to Jacksonville,” Tebow said.

    It is definitely hard to live in Gainesville these days. I love y gators and always will. The receivers need to stop dropping the ball, I don’t know the exact number but I know its at the top of CFB. Hopefully the players step up and play for their future and the future of Gator football. You know it is bad when Tim is critical of the players.

    Big scandal breaking at University of North Carolina – athletes getting A’s and B’s in classes they never attended.

    Does’nt surprise me one bit.

    Had a brother who attended N.C. State in the 1980’s.Since he lived in Maryland the tuition fees at N. C. State were sky high.

    When we traveled down to N.C . State for orientation we learned that the cafeteria on campus was only to be used by the athletes – non athletes could not use it and had to get their lunch somewhere else.
