It begins.

With the season winding down, it is inevitable that the question is going to be fired away at Florida quarterback Tim Tebow on a regular basis down the stretch.

Will he stay or will he go?

For the first time, the Heisman Trophy winner was asked after Tuesday’s practice about the possibility of leaving early for the NFL.

Have you considered that this might be your last game here, Tebow was asked of Saturday’s home finale against The Citadel.

Tebow chuckled, then said, “I haven’t, as you can tell.”

When pressed, Tebow said he isn’t even considering leaving early at this stage.

“No,” he said. “I don’t even think about it like that. The more I’m here, the longer I want to stay here. I love being a Gator.

“It’s not even (something I’m thinking about).”
