The Florida Gators slipped to 1-1 on the season and fell out of the Top 25 after a shocking defeat at home in The Swamp to Kentucky last Saturday. The Wildcats prevailed 27-16, earning their first win over Florida since 1986.

Former Florida quarterback Tim Tebow said that he spoke to the Gators last week prior to the loss, and felt that the players had the "wrong type" of confidence heading into the game. Tebow challenged Florida's future NFL draft picks to be "great" instead of just talented.

Tim Tebow: First time in 31 years, you can't do that! You can't do that.

Molly Qerim: "Come on, you're supposed to be the inspirational one."

Tim Tebow: "Not always! Listen, it was tough. 31 years… I wasn't even born the last time Kentucky beat Florida. Are you kidding me?

I think Florida's [moving] in the right direction. I think Dan Mullen's going to get them there. I think it's going to take a change in mindset. I was at practice Thursday before the Kentucky game and I spoke to the team, obviously that didn't do a lot of good.

There was a confidence, but in my opinion it wasn't the right type of confidence. It was a confidence of 'hey we're Florida, we're talented, we've got a lot of draft picks.'

Listen, draft picks don't win games. Great players win games, OK? There's a difference between being a great player and being a talented player. Florida's talented players need to be great players."
