Would you have left an ill Tim Tebow in the game, leading Kentucky 31-7 late in third quarter?
Florida coach Urban Meyer did, and the result was not pretty in Saturday night’s SEC game in Lexington.
Tebow took a vicious hit and, after several minutes of lying motionless on his back, had to be helped off the field. He was seen vomiting on the sidelines and eventually had to be taken out of the stadium in an ambulance.
Meyer visited with Tebow’s parents at the stadium and later told reporters he believed his star had suffered a concussion.
Florida went on to win 41-7.
