save those nickels, because you're all looking for new jobs next year
...tebow bypasses the draft.
etc etc etc
this matters because...?
To the cock and ball worship that Tebow gets from the media.
It means he won't get drafted by the Lions.
Why would he declare this year?
i thought it was sweet how he made the decision like that
Florida is a pretty big school, if he can manage to spend at least 15 minutes with every student they will probably become the best school on the planet.
Actually, it takes 20 minutes for Tebow to change your life forever, at least according to Thom Brennamen.
15 minutes with Tebow only results in a slight euphoria followed by an intense craving for chocolate covered pickles. Trust me on this...
Approximately 50,000 students attend U of F.
50,000 x 20 minutes = 1 million minutes.
1 million minutes / 60 mins = 16,666.67 hours
16,667.67 hours / 24 hours = 694.44 days
694.44 days / 365 days = 1.9 years.
So, it would take him about 2 years to bless the entire student body with his time. Now, that's assuming he can spend 24 hours a day meeting students, which he can't. You'd have to assume that he can AT THE MOST only spend 12 hours a day bestowing his time to his fellow students, so it's actually closer to 4 years to accomplish this. Therefore, that's the reason he is returning. It's all very simple.
I expect U of F to be ranked right at the top of the list of the top Universities next year.
Could Tebow meet with students 10 at a time and hold a group discussion with them? Something for Florida to look into.
well now, you're really onto something there. You should contact the U of F president post haste. This could really save Saint Tebow some trouble.
tyhe in coming and out going students in that time frame? No Tebow time for them?
I thought "the chosen one" declared a while back he was going to stay all four years and get a degree. Isn't that part of what instantly made him college football's poster boy?
Now they get to play the unselfish angle and continue fellating him for getting his degree. ANOTHER fucking year of this shit. I'm pissed. I can't wait till he goes to the NFL and flames out and/or gets lit up. Preferably by a former wolverine LB.
But seriously? Complain about the announcers who constantly blather about him, but don't say stuff like this. He seems like an athlete who's actually a good person. We should be applauding that.
He is a product, packaged by the media. Thus, he acts accordingly. It was clear early on that he was the chosen one. Do you REALLY think he didn't look to the beneficial media exposure before doing the things he does? Because giving up his spring break or whatever to play with lepers is small price to pay to become the most fellated person in cfb. Put it this way--do you think he would have done the things he has done if no one were to ever find out about them? I'm skeptical.
So, I stick to the plan--hope for him to flame out in the NFL as the overhyped douche that he is.
and you may be right, but I just don't think he does mission work with his family over spring break just so Fox will make a shitty halftime special about him. I think he was doing this stuff before he got to Florida, and I think he's a nice guy. I'm sure he's not the perfect angel the media makes him out to be, but I don't think he's narcissistic enough to go to all this work just so he can be a media darling.
but of course this is all conjecture because we can't know for sure. I think he's mostly phony and definitely getting coaching on how to game the media. I'm mostly sick of the fellating though-it infects the minds of most people brainwashed by ESPN. Look around our site here and you will see similar Tebow fellating. Gross.
you're really a piece of shit if you believe that. people like you make this world fucked up.
and realize that people are motivated by things like money, fame, and power. This will be a fairly shocking revelation to you.
according to your rationale, he would have opted for the draft. No one gives a fuck about "college fame" in a few years.
the guy wants to get his degree, maybe win another NC, and you have to tear him apart?
props to you.
objective when you are looking through Blue and Orange colored glasses. 1 year of earning power when people are questioning his ability at the next level is nothing. People are calling him "the greatest of all time." He is building up his legend status. It will help him go higher in the draft and will probably lead to some endorsements.
Let's see - more fellating in the media and superstar status or sit through a draft, go in the 3rd or 4th and have everyone question whether you have the skills?
Not as easy as you make it.
you're assuming he is a big narcisstic crybaby, which I don't really see. And for whatever reason, I think your psychoanalysis of his motives are pretty inaccurate.
freak out on you for having that opinion. You joined this website yesterday and have come in here like a nutcase.
If Tebow brings out the softbatch in you, that's fine. Join in the mounting chorus. I dissent.
I'm a 3rd year law student here, what can I say.
I'm a UM law student too.
Awwww you two are cute.
"make the world fucked up."
Needs a real pitbull mentality. Defends trivial positions vehemently, and at all costs. Seen any around?
I don't do DUI.
The hero worship is a little creepy, though. A lot of people seem seriously upset that I don't like Tebow and question his motives. Pretty strange.
You can insult me, my family, my values, etc. I could care less. It's a blog. But the way people are defending this third party that they don't even know...odd.
So when Tebow and his family were doing these things before Tebow was famous, what was their motivation then? His brothers go with him on a lot of these trips, but they don't get recognition. Why would they do it?
People are certainly motivated by the things you mentioned. But you can't possibly think that your list is exhaustive. I don't want to judge you, but that is a piece of shit comment to make, saying that Tebow spends his college spring break ministering to and helping people in Singapore because the exposure will make him more marketable.
GENTLEMAN AND A SCHOLAR.
I think he has good intentions and is a great competitor. That's basically it.
OMG Shirtless! (No Homo.)
The kid was born in the Philippines apparently so... at least he's technically not eligible to be president one day!
of my heart.
He's eligible. Johnny McCain was born in Panama and someone unsuccesfully sued to get him DQ'ed from the race.
I thought that was because his parents were in Panama on official U.S. business. I want to say his dad was stationed there in the navy.
/in no way sure of what I just typed.
Not really. You don't have to love him, or even respect him. I fairly ambivalent, but I think it's stupid that people hate Tebow, not because of things he did, but because the media loves him so much. Shouldn't it be the media that you hate, not him?
I don't give a shit what you think of Tim Tebow. But saying that his motivations for helping people could be nothing other than fame is just sad. It makes me glad I'm not relying on you for anything.
You criticize me for imputing motives to Tebow then turn around and do the exact same thing to me. Priceless.
And suggesting that a person's motives are less than 100% pure for any given action rises to the level of "piece of shit?" Haha.
Yeah, when a lot of college football players bask in the fame, Tebow is doing the same good things him and his family did before anyone knew his name.
I don't care about the Tebow bashing, most of it makes me laugh. But to make that kind of an assertion that Tebow volunteers his time in order to get more recognition is a shitty comment. Even if you aren't, some people are altruistic. If you disagree, you're just being cynical.
the government's ability to make people's lives better.
OMG YOU FUCKING ASSHOLE!
Not really. It's just an opinion. You can have yours and I can have mine. Freaking out and name-calling because of it is pretty stupid, though.
Keep in mind that I specifically pointed out that I was not calling you a piece of shit, but rather your comment. Good people can say dumb shit.
"I'm not calling you a bitch, I said you were acting like a bitch" defense. Don't try it on your wife.
"Put it this way--do you think he would have done the things he has done if no one were to ever find out about them? I'm skeptical."
Maybe. Probably. How many students do that and don't get the attention? All the rest that go on Alternate Spring Break. You think they do it for some inflated sense of ego? I'm annoyed by the Tebow man love as much as anyone, but attack the media, not the kid. He hasn't done anything to warrant that.
fourth round draft choice, with 50 cameras in your face looking for a reaction each and every time you get bypassed....or, another year of hero worship....a no brainer.
this kid needs a shot and a piece of ass.
The scouts think Tebow needs to work on his speed...
... at circumcising penises.
