Tim Tebow: Treon Harris has shown flashes, but...
Former Gators star Tim Tebow said he understands Florida fans' concerns with quarterback Treon Harris, but the offense's struggles go beyond one player.
"I think obviously Treon has come under some heat in the last five weeks, but it's not all on him," Tebow said during a teleconference Wednesday promoting his work on the SEC Network. "I think part of it is they've asked him to do some things that he's not necessarily comfortable with. I don't think the offensive line has played extremely well..."
Tebow, the 2007 Heisman Trophy winner, said he'd like to see No. 18 UF run a more balanced offense to help Harris.
Harris has failed to complete more than half of his passes in four of the last five games. The sophomore thrown for only 256 yards total in the last two weeks heading into Saturday's SEC title game against No. 2 Alabama.
"I think he's shown at times what he can do," Tebow said. "What he needs to improve is consistency and the ability to get it out of his hands a little bit quicker...
"For Florida to have a chance against Alabama, that is going to be key. He cannot take big losses, and he can't force the football."
