    Most Vol fans still don’t like Tim Tebow because of his playing days at Florida. Tebow was a well-decorated quarterback for the Gators from 2006-09, and his Gator teams often dominated the Vols thanks to his phenomenal performances.

    But on the morning of Tennessee’s match-up with Alabama, Tebow had a message for the Vols.

    Tebow told the Vols not to “be scared” and to “take some pride in The T” when they take on No. 1 Alabama in Tuscaloosa today. He stated that the Vols’ effort today would be a reflection of how much the team cares about themselves and the program.

    Here’s the full speech from Tebow:

    Tennessee is as much as a 37-point underdog heading into the 100th meeting between them and the Tide today. It’s the largest underdog the Vols have ever been in program history.
