Rivals article that confronts the media lovefest with Tebow. Makes good points, but uses Sam Bradford as the counterargument, which displeases me. Thought it was funny because we say the same exact things on this board.
Disrespecting Tebow, the God
Even though it gets annoying about all the talk about Tebow, but he is going down as one of the greatest college football players of all time. He also does a lot of work in the community and such.
Even "a lot of work in the community" is an under statement for Tebow. Not many college students spend there spring breaks working in an orphanage. He deserves all the hype and much more.
He is an outstanding kid and far from the norm for a college student, and especially a football player. The thing is, I just get tired of all the talk about him on ESPN. I wish they would try to spread the wealth to some lesser known players more often.
I agree, what he is doing is unprecedented. I think part of me hates him because I know that if I were in his position I would be the biggest womanizer asshat douchebag out there (at least more so than him). The thing that gets me the most though is that he doesn't seem to have a flaw. Other than his slightly annoying voice, any fan would hail him as Jesus if he was on their team. That being said I hate him. The End.
The reason people hate him is because ESPN can't stop talking about him. They just suck his and Manny's dicks.
I think Bradford is the perfect counter-argument. He won a Heisman just like Tebow.
Just the fact that I don't like Bradford much either.
I'd counter that he was a perfect counter-argument until January 8th.
I agree that Tebow deserves a lot of the respect and love that he has received, but there are certain people (Thom Brennaman) who have gone waaaay overboard with the praise. It just gets old...
Yeah I do not like it either that people like Thom Brennaman go overboard because if he does something wrong, people will be saying a lot of negative stuff about him.
He is a well-mannered, humble kid. You would not be able to tell he won the Heisman trophy. His lack of arrogance, mixed with a quiet confidence is quite refreshing.
By the way, Sam is listed as 6'4". No way in hell. Try 6'6". I have gone to my fair share of OU games and practices, and believe me, Sam is Manning-esque. His ability to hit the open receiver in stride 20 yards downfield is unmatched.
I can only hope that Tate and Denard develop like him.
