Yes, but it doesn't have anything to do with Urban Meyer's hiring. It's just he keeps winning and I have no idea how or why.
I'd wanna be in the huddle with him.
I'd get to be his bro and I would never have to hear the game commentary while the game was going on during a Tebow game.
Class of 2010
It's really not his fault the media types fellate him incessantly. He's just doing his job well and nobody can really explain how or why.
And that Defense plays LIGHTS OUT for him too ... so you know he's won the respect of that locker room.
I have never disliked Tim Tebow, but if I didn't hear about him for a little while that would be cool.
My El Cunado is a UF fan and Tebow's senior year he would tell me that he really liked Tim but was totally ready for "it" to be about the team again or just someone else.
Tebow isn't the problem. I like him. It's the Media's non stop coverage that kills me.

Ditto. I don't hate Tim Tebow. I hate how ESPN rams him down our throat. As I type, they are actually defining "Tebowing" as part of a 5 minute segment. Unreal. And the recent main article on espn.com asking whether or not you'd take Tebow or Brady? C'mon, man.
exactly. my favorite moment was when i was watching midday ESPN (never a good decision) and they spent five minutes glorifying tebow.... and then skip bayless proceeded to ask if tebow was overrated, and they debated that for a while. are you kidding me?
Show them Ohio's here!
Nope. Still hate him for being a part of that 2006 NC beatdown that destroyed the hopes and dreams of Buckeyes everywhere. Will always have a Bielema level of hatred for Tebow just for that game. Even though he was not the starter.
I'm with you.
i love the completely fake anti-religion narrative that ESPN has tried to concoct as a way to explain why people aren't huge fans of tim tebow; they really can't comprehend why people didn't want to be subjected to unending coverage of a second string QB who was literally doing nothing in games at the time
of course, now that he's a legit story, people can actually accept him being in the news somewhat (although now you have to deal with breathless hyperbole)
Never disliked him just thought ESPN was too high on the guy.
Voted no. Can't stand the guy. I've spoken with people who run one of the high-end training programs for draft picks, and they've nothing good to say of him. I also was at a draft party with one of the psychologists who does psych evaluations at the NFL Draft and he rambled on about how Tebow was a drama queen and full of himself. Also the guys who run the training program and facilities, invited him to come and check out their facilities, yet when he walked in the door, he saw Sam Bradford, Gerald McCoy and I believe Colt McCoy at the facilities and he told the trainers that he wouldn't workout at their facilities if those guys continued to workout there too.
Not sure why Meyer would have anything to do with thoughts about Tebow. That being said I work with a former Marine who met Tebow last year. He has nothing good to say about Tebow and I vote no.
Tebow is my favorite non-Buckeye athlete right now.
"I'm Willie Buckets, and I approve this message"
I never "hated" Tebow, but like some of the previous comments stated above, it's the media (ESPN) that portrays him like a Roman God! Quite frankly, it's just becoming annoying and over bearing to listen too! The only way we are going to minimize the Tebow talk and Urban affiliation, is if Braxton can pick up the offensive quickly and is as successful both on & off the field! Needless to say, the 2012 season can't get here fast enough!
I don't dislike Tebow the guy, I dislike Tebow the legend or whatever the media has turned him into. He had 1 terrific year in college where he certainly deserved the Heisman. The other 2 years he was a finalist I felt others should have been there instead. He was hyped into a first round pick when in all honestly he probably could've been had in the 3rd round or later. This season the comebacks have been fun to watch and all that but people refused to acknowledge the downfalls of the teams he's played against in this stretch. The Bears were missing 75% of their offense. Minnesota was without AP. Oakland had a QB who was brand new to their offense. The Chargers were missing key parts.
Tonight, they played a bad D, and didn't muster many more points than they have previously. Hopefully, we'll get to hear a little less about him from here on out. He's a good dude to be sure, but in my opinion, he's the most over rated player out there.
They talk about his come backs, I say what about Andy Dalton? He rarely gets press. People say he refuses to lose and no one plays with the heart he does. I say what about Rothlesberger playing and winning on one leg. The have just hyped this guy to death, and it's not his fault, but it's freakin annoying.
Also, I think the "Tebowing" where he's on a knee praying or whatever and a lot of the Jesus and God talk he does is self serving. He knows it's stuff that catches the attention of the cameras and analysts. He knows it adds to his image and brand. I don't have a problem with his religion or religion in general, I have a problem when it's done in a "look at me" way.
"When you pray, don't be like the hypocrites who love to pray publicly on street corners and in the synagogues where everyone can see them. I tell you the truth, that is all the reward they will ever get."
I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.
EDIT: I shouldn't of.
Hmm, I guess I take things more literal. And don't worry. We wont be arguing. What it all comes down to is a question. Is Tebow doing this for his glory or for God's? None of us will ever know that answer. All of us will believe what we want to believe based off of our values and perception. Ultimately it is what god sees in his heart that matters. Thanks for the tactful reply. I won't judge the man, but we can all weigh the actions and decide whether or not we would take the same. Regardless of my decision, Tebow's are all on him.
I'll say this for Tim Tebow, the guy wins the right way and he's a good role model. Religous beliefs aside, aetheist or devout Christian, its hard to find a better pro athlete today to point to and tell your kids (if you have them, i don't) that this is the kind of guy who you want to idolize. Not LeQuit. Not Vick. Not A-Rod. Not Tiger. Tebow may never be a hall of famer or a pro bowl qb but he is a seemingly good dude who has all the intangibles anyone could ask for. ESPN has done him a dis-service by the unending hype, conjecture and bs about him. But then again that's what they do. We know all too well they love to saddle a story that impacts a large fan base or at least invokes passion and ride into the ground. Tebow has been Spice Girled by ESPN.
That being said, I would rather my son look up to a man like Tebow other than a man like Suh, or worse in my book is that clown from the Ravens, Lewis. I don't agree with way Tebow honors God but I am glad he represents where all of our focus should be.
Furthermore, while we're on the Tebow subject. Some of you better be praying that god has a sense of humor, for every time I see Tebow referenced as the Lord himself, it strikes me as wrong. I am not going to judge anyone but I would not make the choice. It sounds awful blasphemous, and if you don't believe then that is your right. You had just better be right.

Irricoir, stop. 11W doesn't need, or want, this kind of talk.
It is inevitable when breaching the Tebow subject. You can't talk about tebow without it being brought up. I am respectful of peoples opinions. It won't get out of hand here and your reply that you edited was a very good and constructive one.
Would I still have the ability to edit that statement I would rephrase it to simply say this:
" I don't find the Tebow=God statements to be funny." If someone would like to make that correction for me, I would appreciate it.
By stating his beliefs this openly and with such conviction, Tebow needs to live flawlessly. Vultures are everywhere wishing for his failure and waiting for him to prove himself a hypocrite. It is a sad world when it wants to see the worst in the best and find the good in the worst. (OJ and Anthony among others)
