“Everyone says we ran Tim because he’s a great player. That’s partially true. The other part is single-wing offense gives you plus one in the run game,” Meyer said. “Jordan Reed has proven he can do it, and Trey Burton can run well, too. This is the year I think we actually will play two like we played Tim and Chris Leak.”
Together, Leak and Tebow led Florida to the 2006 national championship. Leak handled most of the passing plays, and Tebow built a reputation as a bruising runner capable of bowling over linebackers, picking up first downs and scoring touchdowns.
