South Carolina football coach Steve Spurrier voted against Tim Tebow before he voted for him:
“South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier has acknowledged that he was the culprit who did not vote for Florida quarterback Tim Tebow on the coaches’ preseason All-SEC football team.
Spurrier, who like Tebow won a Heisman Trophy as a Florida quarterback, said it was a mistake. He said there was a miscommunication between him and Director of Football Operations Jamie Speronis, who filled out and sent in Spurrier’s ballot.
Spurrier, who said he had trouble sleeping last night when he found out what happened, phoned Charles Bloom of the SEC office to ask if he could change his vote. Bloom allowed it, so technically Tebow now joins Tennessee safety Eric Berry, LSU tackle Ciron Black and Alabama receiver Julio Jones was [sic] unanimous selections.”
Spurrier’s explanation is at the link. My explanation is highlighted above.
