I'm not making fun of the guy for getting hurt, but the reactions were and are nothing short of hilarious.

Did you see the training staff break the sound barrier running onto the field when Tebow didn't get up? They looked like a pack of hyenas trying to get at a sick antelope! I have NEVER seen a staff run onto the field like that for anyone before.

How about Tebow's parents running down the stands? I'm sure they were worried about their kid, but I'm also sure they looked up and saw millions of dollars flying out of the stadium as well. "There goes the retirement beach house in Destin, honey".

The Gator fans......all looking like they'd just lost their homes or something.

And of course the media......you'd think the President had been shot. Absolutely ridiculous.

Gotta go now, I need to see if Tim vomited again within the past 20 minutes.

Well here is the poll

USATODAY.com

Meh, still seems kinda kooky to me. Like Boise State, a good program, but honestly, Number 5? I don't know why Ole Miss is still ranked and South Carolina isn't. They took care of Old Miss and almost beat Georgia. The smattering of Cal by Oregon I think makes them more deserving of a higher slot.

Pretty kooky.

For comparison here is AP and Coaches side by side

The Coaches Poll is always littered with bias. The AP is far more credible. The Ducks need to keep winning and get to the Rose Bowl.

They're both littered with bias, don't get me started on them Bowden boys. The AP is worthless though as far the BCS goes.

OU controls about 95% of their own destiny. Which is good.

You would have thought losing to an unranked team would have tanked USC, apparently not. They are ND like love in the polls. Gosh I hope they lose again.

And what the heck happened to Miami? They get beat on the road by a ranked opponent and fall 9 or 10 spots? WTF?

I think it was the manner in which Miami lost. They were blown out. With FSU losing now twice and GT looking shabby, Miami's victories look less impressive IMO. That OU/Miami should be interesting though. I'm taking OU to win by 2 tds.

Yeah I'm thinking our D should be able to do the same thing as Va Tech, J Harris looked lke crap with all of that pressure. It looks like it will be the "game of the week". Although I'm kind of interested to see if IU can beat tOSU that would be great.

I'm a homer, but I think if we have SB back, we blow them out.
