Head Ball Coach not voting for Tebow?

By staff

As a former Heisman Trophy winner, South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier gets a vote.

He never reveals his vote, and he's not going to start now. But he did provide a few hints earlier this week when asked about Florida quarterback Tim Tebow repeating.

"I really like those Texas quarterbacks, certainly Graham Harrell and Colt McCoy out there, those two guys, and the Oklahoma quarterback, (Sam) Bradford ... shoot," said Spurrier, always an admirer of high-powered passing games.

"Tebow's got so many other guys around him. He only throws about 15 balls a game. Of course, he runs for about two or three touchdowns anytime he wants to. He's certainly a tremendous athlete."

Spurrier, one of three Florida quarterbacks to win the Heisman along with Danny Wuerffel and Tebow, said he wants to see some more football before making up his mind.

"I don't know, I just sort of feel those Oklahoma and Texas quarterbacks might have an edge because they're throwing so much more this year," Spurrier said.

Here's a look at how Bradford, Harrell, McCoy and Tebow compare to this point:
