Tim Tebow already owns one Heisman and two national titles.

Two national championships are not enough for Tim Tebow. The Florida quarterback announced Sunday that he will return for his senior season. This is terrific news for Gator Nation and bad news for every SEC defensive coordinator.

This is not a huge surprise because some of the draft experts were projecting Tebow as a middle candidate for Round 1, predicting his penchant for running would make NFL teams in need of a quarterback reluctant to take him. He's no Michael Vick (thankfully) and doesn't project as high as Oklahoma's Sam Bradford or USC's Mark Sanchez

Tebow has one of the best resumes for a college quarterback. He can run like few of his collegiate predecessors. And if you believe the announcers in the FOX broadcast booth, he can walk on water.

Playing another season is risky for any QB with happy feet. But if he stays healthy, wins a second Heisman Trophy and leads the Gators to another national title, it's hard to imagine that his stock wouldn't rise. He would be hailed as the best college football player ever, and that would be difficult for any team that needs a QB to overlook.
