Please say it isn't so.....

I copied the story below from the Orlando Sentinal and I am trying to hold back the tears. There is a possibility of us loosing Tebow, Brandon Spikes and Percy Harvin a year early. I am just ill. No words can explain this.....stay tuned, there will be an interview w/ Tebow tomorrow on College Gameday.

Gators quarterback Tim Tebow told the Sentinel on Tuesday that he'll "probably" petition to the NFL draft advisory committee to determine his potential status should he decide to leave school early."It's the smart thing to do," said Tebow, a junior. Tebow has not decided on his future and is focused on Saturday's SEC title game against No. 1 Alabama. The advisory committee is composed of NFL officials, scouts and general managers. Gators linebacker Brandon Spikes told Florida Today of his plans to petition, and Gators wide receiver Percy Harvin also might petition.
As one of the most celebrated college football players of all time, Tebow is working on his second Heisman Trophy campaign. How the Gators finish the season is expected to play a part in Tebow's NFL decision. The winner of Saturday's SEC title game could land a spot in next month's BCS National Championship in Miami. Either Oklahoma or Texas is expected to be the other team in that game.Tebow already has one national championship ring. He was Chris Leak's backup on the Gators' 2006 national championship team.The Heisman is awarded next week, after the conference title game. If Tebow could win college football's top individual award again, he would be only the second player to be a repeat Heisman winner, joining Ohio State running back Archie Griffin.
