Ben Volin, Gator Bytes: CBS analyst Gary Danielson says Urban Meyer was right to have Tim Tebow in Saturday's game against Kentucky with Florida leading, 31-7, late in the third quarter: "For where the game was, there was no need for Tim to be out of the game yet.

A lot of other people, they get to second guess, and that's why they're in a position they're in and I'm in the position I'm in."
