Urban and Tebow, and OK, this was cool

Two hours before kickoff against Florida State, Florida coach Urban Meyer was on the field, just him and daughter Gigi Nicki, greeting every Gator as the team walked through the stadium and across the field toward the locker room. By 1:37 p.m., the team was gone, but Meyer and Nicki stayed. It was almost as if one Gator had yet to cross the field.

One guess who that was.

Ten minutes later, a handful of sheriff's deputies start walking down the empty stadium steps. They are followed by a single Gator. Of course, it's Tim Tebow.

Meyer meets him at midfield with a hug. Nicki hugs him. They walk toward the locker room, and Tebow throws his arm around Meyer's shoulders as they disappear into the tunnel.

I don't care who you are or how cynical you are (guilty ): If you were here, and you didn't get goosebumps watching this, you're a cadaver.

Thanks...for your reply.  This SEC Championship is really going to be an incredible game.   I can't imagine the pressure on these players.  Our QB is a cool dude too and it will be a game for the classics.  Actually, I think that Alabama must stay close at first half and then it will be intense.  I could even see an overtime if we can keep it under 30 going to the final minute.  Florida has peaked at the right time and look explosive and few weaknesses.  Alabama must be able to hit the short 3rd down conversions, keep kickoffs and punts contained, and hope it rains in the Georgia Dome!   What are your three keys for your Gators to win--and go ahead and give a prediction.  Will it be a high scoring game or defensive battle.  Last year it was 31-20.  Florida won fourth quarter and this year Alabama must do the same to take a win.
The game is on!  Roll Tide.

Tebow is the pinnacle of humanity

Ahhh, how sweet, Doyel has sprouted a little Tebow-ner.  He's a good college qb, but all this nonsense about him being a great guy is just rubbish.  Is it because he's religious?  Nuts to that.  Religion does not make one great in the least.  Believing in bizarre things without a shred of proof demonstrates a profound inability to think rationally and should be reproached rather than admired.

How can a moment that takes place 2 HOURS before game time with an empty stadium be staged?  You moron.
If you hate the Tim Tebow stories, then hate the media for them...not Tim Tebow.  Everyone's attacks on this stupid blog going after Tebow like he is some media hog is disgusting.  He is a phenomenal player with great character and attitude...therefore, people are interested in what he is doing so the media reports.  Get over the character bashing because of your jealously and anger of getting your a#$% kicked by him for the last three years.

Salute to Tim "Touchdown" Tebow.
I am a devoted Alabama alumni and fan.  The Tim Tebow era at Florida and his presence in the college football world is simply incredible and should be saluted by all.  
I hope that Alabama plays the best game of the year--and not sure that will be enough to top this leader's drive and willpower.  Tim Tebow leads with a divine inspiration that simply can not be denied.  Praise him, or cheer for your team to do well against him--but salute him for his outstanding achievements and leadership.  He certainly has done all he can to inspire our youth and change the sportsmanship aspects of the college football competition.
Good Luck Tim Tebow in all you do.  The Tide will give you a good dose of SEC competition.  May the best team win--you certainly are a winner.
GOD Bless You.
Thanks for the memories and I hope that you find next week too much to overcome (Roll Tide)  but no matter who wins---I salute you.

The scripture on QB face is actually Hebrews 12:1-2 which says<font size="3" color="#800000"><font size="3" color="#800000">

Heb 12:1

<font size="3" color="#800000">

 

 

<font size="3" color="#008080"><font size="3" color="#008080">

Heb 12:2

<font size="3" color="#008080">

 

Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Please read the correct verse on the air.  It was not Hebrews 12:12 as read by the commentator.

Thanks,

Paget Sanders, Esq.

Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

I'm sick of Tebow too.  The 30 minute obligatory blow job that the media gives him is just overdone.  That amazing halftime speech he gave about "30 seconds...for the rest of your life", was done by the reluctant quarterback in Varsity Blues.  ALMOST WORD FOR WORD.  And they put it up on the stadium as though Tim Tebow is Knute Rockne or something. 

And YES, the moment was staged.  The proof will be if we EVER see it again.  If that clips pops up on every single sports show like I imagine it will, then that is proof that it is staged.  Any "private" moment would be done without cameras.  That's the very definition of private.   If I'm wrong, and we NEVER see it again, then I apoligize and imagine it's a pretty cool moment between him and his coach.

But Ryan Mallett is the single best quarterback in football today.  Better than most of the guys playing on Sunday in the NFL.  Go Razorbacks!    Beat LSU!

Donth, I hear you. I think we all have a right to our cynicism with this story, the way it has been shoved down our throats. But in this case, I really think it was about Tebow's willingness to sign for everyone who wanted an autograph. If I ever find out I'm wrong, well, dammit. Someone will pay for that.

Doyel, if that's the case, I can't argue. There's just been so much BS surrounding Tebow, that it gets easy to assume the worst.

I'm just worried that Urban won't be able to see through his tears to coach the team during the game.

Viper, you are correct in that I shouldn't put this on Tebow. However, you're telling me that Tebow isn't safe at home? Tebow wouldn't have been safe going in with the team? Seriously?

Sorry, but this has "staged for marketing" written all over it.

It is kind of hard to see Tebow though all of the bs put out by the media and UF. Hope Tebow's not a willing participant.
