Tim Tebow, New York Jets to Blame for Florida Gators Loss in the Allstate Sugar Bowl

Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports — Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

So as SEC Football Nation opens their eyes this morning trying to figure out what in the heck happened to their powerful Florida Gators in the Allstate Sugar Bowl there can be only one explanation…

And it can be summed up in five words…

New York Jets Tim Tebow

Seriously, just think about it for a few seconds and it will all make sense.

Tebow was all decked out and was standing on the sidelines pumping up his Gators just like he did for four incredible seasons in Gainesville, Florida. Everything he has touched turned to gold for like 25 years.

Until he was traded to the Jets this season…

Since then, you can say the chosen one is serving his time of exile and trials out in the desert…

And it’s obvious his cursed presence alone quickly rubbed off his affliction on his former team on the first play.

Bad pass…

Interception…

Defensive touchdown…

It was like Mark Sanchez was playing quarterback and in an instant the Gators were transformed into the miserable mess that was the Jets this season.

And Florida just couldn’t shake it…

Meanwhile on the other side of the ball, the Louisville Cardinals and Teddy Bridgewater could simply do no wrong.

Louisville looked like the superior SEC team on the field on almost every play. It was clear their speed, size and confidence shook the Florida psyche early and set the tone.

(has it been mentioned the Cardinals are technically in the ACC…)

And it was no doubt a carbon copy of how every team in the NFL looked against New York.

So with all that being said, shake it off Florida fans…

Just be sure to keep your boy Tebow far, far, far away as long as he is associated with the Jets.

Or you will be see a lot more ugly, dominated football like you say this evening!
