Mike Spath points out that doing an interview for the official site is a pretty good indicator he'll be back.

I don't want to generalize based on just my own experiences, but in my time as a coach, we have had players die from racing cars and playing basketball. There are inherent dangers to just about any athletic activity.
I have yet to see evidence (not saying it doesn't exist) that playing high school football has a negative impact on long-term quality of life. It's true that some guys end up with bad knees, bad backs, etc. but there are lots of ways to get those things. I have a good friend who ran cross country in high school, and his knees are messed up while I'm fine. And while the cumulative effects of CTE buildup are probably worse than those of an arthritic knee or two, I don't know that the difference is that significant. We could be a nation of Forrest Gumps running across the country, tearing up our knees, or we can live life to the fullest and let the chips fall where they may. I wouldn't stop my kid from skiing, doing gymnastics, or playing baseball - all of which can result in horrific injuries - so I wouldn't stop my kid from playing football, either.

Exactly. That's why some places weren't getting the Mayweather/Pacquiao fight, because it was expensive many times over.

Well, I'm sure it's not that rare that a professional athlete has a kid who's being recruiting to play college sports. Udonis Haslem might still be in the NBA, but his son isn't playing college football. He's a high schooler who will probably join a college roster in August 2017.

I don't think that's really the case. He got a couple decent offers early, and it looks like the last solid offer he got (aside from Michigan) was Arizona back in May. And if you're talking about ratings, his 247 Composite rating has gone down a little over 200 spots in the past month.

At the risk of making the same mistake twice, I like Valentin's game - he reminds me of Chris Bryant, who I liked coming out of high school. I think Valentin bends a little better than Davis, and I wonder if Davis will struggle with standing up too high at the next level.

A lot of things affect us "massively." Photosynthesis affects me massively. Farming affects me massively. Taxes affect me massively. Sunlight affects me massively. The internet affects me massively. Water purification affects me massively. So on and so on and so on.
The average person does not need to understand photosynthesis, farming, taxes, sunlight, the internet, and water purification processes in order to use them in their daily lives.
The Earth is here. It has been since the day I was born, and it will be on the day that I die.
I am done with this conversation. It's being taken in directions that it does not need to go.

I would say the average person is not a physicist, chemist, biologist, astronomer, astrophysicist, geologist, petroleum engineer, etc. I am none of those things, so on a daily basis, it matters not whether the ground I'm walking on was created 6,000 or 13.5 billion years ago. I think it's pretty safe to say that the age of the earth does not affect the majority of us any more than knowing the exact scientific process in which oxygen is produced by plant life. Is the Earth here for me to live on? Yes. Are the plants producing enough oxygen for me to breathe? Yes. Okay, thanks, I think we're ready to watch "The Bachelor" or do some laundry now.

Something else that damages the integrity of the game is if oodles and oodles of criminals are allowed to play it. I would rather watch a guy throw a football that's slightly deflated than watch a criminal.
|4 days 11 hours ago||semantics||
The point is that arguing against having a spiritual belief (a.k.a. atheism) is just as "damaging" to some people as arguing for one. Ultimately, whether the world was created 13.5 billion years ago or 6,000 years ago does not matter much to you or me. Both of us were born in the late 20th century (I presume), and we will probably die in the middle of the 21st century. When Tim Tebow dies, his "spirit" will do one of two things - it will disappear forever, or it will live on in some form or fashion. Either way, it doesn't affect you or me.
But nobody's being coerced. "Coercion" involves force or threats.

The truth is, Christians - and people of many faiths - are asked to spread their faith. So saying Tebow should be hated on because he's following his faith sounds pretty intolerant to me. I hear people trying to convince others that God doesn't exist all the time, spreading their lack of belief in a higher power. Why should atheists and agnostics be allowed to spread their spiritual beliefs when Christians/Jews/Muslims can't?

No. This world would be a terrible place if your sons grew up to be like Tim Tebow!!! If everybody was like Tim Tebow, we would just have a world full of hard-working people who say nice things about others and take time to be helpful and aren't great NFL quarterbacks!
Personally, I'm sick of this Tim Tebow shit. Give me more Ben Roethlisbergers (allegedly) raping people, because that motherfucker wins Super Bowls. Get Tebow's bitch-ass out of the NFL to make more room for the Vick family.

Ah, yes. The oft-forgotten 11th commandment, "Thou shalt not sign autographs on Christmas Eve."
Personally, I hate Mother Teresa because one time she turned up her stereo too loud on the day before Palm Sunday.

You know, if I was receiving medical care unavailable otherwise, and the only thing I had to deal with was someone saying, "I hope you welcome the Lord Jesus into your heart" or something like that, I think that's a small price to pay.
I don't like listening to sales pitches from people trying to sell me time shares, but if I got a blood transfusion or someone removed a cyst while telling me about how I should check into a vacation in St. Lucia, how am I hurt by that?
