IT'S TEBOW TIME: In Jacksonville, Don Coble notes SEC Net's Joe Tessitore and Tim Tebow broadcast live from Gainesville for the channel's debut, but "consistent lightning and intermittent showers" forced them to relocate from in front of Florida Field to the school's indoor football complex. Tebow "clearly didn't possess the polish of a professional television front man," but whether "by design or coincidence, it still worked." However, Tebow "constantly said 'we' when talking about the Gators" (FLORIDA TIMES-UNION, 8/15).

Tebow turned 27 on Thursday and was "presented a birthday cake by Albert, the team's mascot" live on air (FLORIDA TODAY, 8/15).
