Along with all of us, Brandon Boykin is disappointed that Tim Tebow will not be playing this Thursday when the Eagles face the Jets in the fourth and final preseason game.

For me, watching Tebow fire the ball who knows where for a half would have at least made for something to watch in this game... But for Boykin, it would have been a chance to exact a little revenge. This is from his latest "rookie diary" on PhiladelphiaEagles.com.

I was looking forward to getting some "Tebow Time," so it's disappointing that he won't play. I was trying to get a pick or a sack or something. I never beat him in college, two years in a row. He threw a touchdown to Riley Cooper and he one-handed it in the back of the end zone. That's something I'm not proud of. It was a good catch. There was no way he would've caught that any other day.

Boykin has been rehashing some college rivalries with several of his new teammates.

There are some good rivalries on the team from college. Fletcher Cox, Jamar Chaney and I, we're always talking about the SEC. Everybody wants to stake their claim. Missouri plays Georgia in the second week of the college football season, so Jeremy Maclin and I may have a little something-something going. I have faith in my Dawgs.
