GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The loudest ovation of Florida's spring game came when former Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow entered the Swamp.
As Tebow walked through the end zone, quarterback John Brantley inadvertently skipped a pass at his predecessor's feet. Tebow picked up the ball and effortlessly threw it 40 yards back.
It was the best pass of the day.
Brantley completed 4 of 14 passes for 45 yards as the Gators opened coach Will Muschamp's era with a resounding thud Saturday.
Brantley, who struggled most of last season as Tebow's replacement, was paired with new offensive coordinator Charlie Weis and a more passer-friendly system. But Brantley's debut looked about the same as his first year as Florida's starter. He had two passes batted down and several overthrows.
