Florida fans obtained a appropriate remark seeing Stephen A. Smith squirm on ESPN Friday morning wearing a Gators tie after losing a bet with Tim Tebow last week.
The First Take host predicted that Alabama would “mop the bottom” with Florida last weekend, and Tebow challenged him to wear a Gators necktie if the game was any nearer than a blowout. Obviously, Florida would waddle on to push Alabama to the restrict and advance within two features of extra time.
After profitable the bet, Tebow and host Molly Qerim teased Smith as First Take started this week. Ever the showman, Smith saved up the shtick as he honored his be aware.
“This is a very embarrassing day for me,” Smith said. “A Florida Gators tie. I have to wear this because of that man [Tebow]. I’m ailing to my stomach.”

Smith wasn’t the entirely one attempting ahead to a Crimson Tide fetch, but the margin all thru which he expected is what makes the bet that powerful sweeter for Gators fans. Alabama is the best team within the nation till another team beats them, and being outscored by Florida 26-10 within the final three quarters isn’t what most anticipated.
It may no longer have been the smartest bet by Stephen A. — especially because I don’t recall Tebow risking anything within the tournament of a blowout — but that surly face with blue and orange below it’s something Gators fans won’t omit for a long time.
The cherry on top? A Gator chomp and a gargantuan “it’s great to be a Florida Gator” at the question of Tebow.
