Tebow and South Lose 2010 Senior Bowl

The last college football game of the season was played in Mobile, Alabama on Saturday. College football’s stars took to the field one final time in the Senior Bowl as the South’s Tim Tebow (Florida) aimed to silence his critics who claim that he does not have what it takes to succeed in the NFL. Unfortunately for Tebow and the South, the North squad came out of the gates swinging early and never looked back, winning 31-13.

Tebow started the game for the South and played a few series before being replaced by Jarrett Brown (West Virginia).  He also saw some action in the fourth quarter. While Tebow’s passing numbers weren’t too bad (8-12, 50 yds.), he fumbled twice and he looked uncomfortable taking snaps under center.

QB Zac Robinson (Oklahoma State) had the best performance for the South’s going 12-21, 176 yds, 1 TD, and 1 INT. Jeremy Williams (Tulane) turned in a good performance as well, snagging 6 catches for 82 yards.

The stars of the day for the North were Mardy Gilyard (Cincinnati), and Dan LeFevour (Central Michigan). Gilyard torched the South’s secondary for 103 yards and a touchdown on 5 catches. LeFevour, who was looking to raise his draft stock, did just that. He passed for 97 yards and a touchdown looking like the best QB on the field.

It will be interesting to see what names catch steam because of their performance in the game. Scouts will be critiquing game film as the draft nears and teams assess their needs. The Senior Bowl is the last football game before February’s combine.
