Tebow was asked about sex ... and I liked it

I mean, I liked everything about it.

I liked the guts it took, and the insight it required, to ask that question of that athlete. He's not just an athlete. He's the most famous Christian athlete in the country, and he's walking on a campus -- I went there -- teeming with temptation. Are you saving yourself for marriage? is the wrong question to ask every athlete but one in college football. But it's the right question to ask Tebow. He's The One.

I like the poise Tebow showed in answering it, and in making fun of the media for being so uncomfortable with the moment.

I liked the passion Dennis Dodd showed in his takedown of the questioner, Clay Travis. Dodd can write, friends. He can really write.

I liked the debate it has stirred up around the country. Was the question fair? Was Tebow even telling the truth? Lots of interesting points to banter about.

Liked it. All of it. Not sure I'd have asked it, but only because of my own weaknesses. However, if it had occurred to me, and I was there, sure. I'd have asked.

I can't agree more with the writer. How far will the media go for a story or to create controversy. Nothing in our world anymore is off limits especially when it comes to interviewing a college football player.
Good for Tebow; he handled himself well and is someone who is not afraid to express is faith.

Look at you Doyel...giving props to the question.  You're being positive!

On a serious note...should there really be any debate?  If Tebow was really uncomfortable with the question, he could have declined to answer it.  He did not. 

However- men are held to a different standard than women.  Had Clay Travis asked a 23 year old female athlete if she was a virgin- the press would have lynched him.  It's fair game to ask men about that.  Double standard?  Maybe....maybe not.

TMI!!

There is already way too much athlete-idolizing in this country and people are swarming around Tim Tebow like he's some sort of deity. Stop it already - Tebow's private life is none of our business!

I've got a lot of respect for him, i do.  But he doesn't know what he's missing.  He's gonna be his own Monday morning QB when he's 40.  "If I only....."I mean come on....
