Hernandez came up big again in the fourth quarter. With Florida leading 17-14, Ahmad Black’s interception of a Sam Bradford pass gave the Gators possession at the UF 24-yard line. On Florida’s next play, Tebow and Hernandez teamed on a 13-yard completion, and the Gators were off and running. Ten plays later, on 3rd-and-6 at the OU 16-yard line, Tebow hit Hernandez for a 9-yard gain. Two plays later, Florida had a touchdown, a 24-14 lead and, with just 3:07 left in the game, the national title.
Or maybe you don’t remember Hernandez. It was hard to stand out on that loaded Florida team. Tebow. Percy Harvin. The great Pouncey twins on the offensive line; Mike has made 32 starts in two NFL seasons, and Maurkice is an all-pro center.
Linebacker Brandon Spikes, safety Major Wright and cornerback Joe Haden? NFL starters all. David Nelson, Riley Cooper and Louis Murphy are NFL receivers. At least 11 other Gators off that team are in the NFL. But how much longer will Aaron Hernandez be in the NFL?
