Meyer: Tebow wins top college ESPY



TAMPA -- Florida coach Urban Meyer is speaking with reporters as part of the Florida Sports Writers Association's College Football Media Days, and he's let out a spoiler as part of his opening comments: Tim Tebow was honored with an ESPY Award as the top college athlete Wednesday night.

The ESPYs won't air until Sunday night, but Meyer, who attended the taping in Los Angeles Wednesday and took an overnight flight home to Florida, said that Tebow earned the college honor. Meyer said he detests individual honors and hopes his Gators can earn a team honor at next year's ESPYs.
