So, Tebow had John 16:33 under his eyes for the game. Here is one googled translation:

"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."

What was Tebow trying to say? Did it have anything to do with the football game? Just a random bible quote?

Anyone know?

I believe Tebow just picks a favorite verse of his own to display each week. Not random, but not a direct meaning to the football game at hand.

I like Tebow as a person, no doubt. He knows lots of people watch him each week so he uses that space to advertise his faith in a subtle way. Gets people curious and they end up looking it up as you did.

everyone that hates on tebow is a jealous, hate-filled fool.

kids made nothing but all the right decisions in his life, and he has to get ripped on for crying after losing the national championship.

give me a friggin break. ripping on tiger hasnt been enough for you people this week?

No you're right. Any of us would have cried, too, had we been in that position. I think it's just the fact that the media has been SO OBSESSED with Tebow for years and has constructed a super-human image of him--Gator Nation loves him, while everyone else is so hypersaturated with the TebowLoveFest we're happy his reign is coming to an end.

He did great things for Florida and if I were a Florida Gator, I, too, would be sad the Tebow years are over.

MGoJen- That's weird, it normally works for me (I have FF on Vista). The img url is also under "Properties." I didn't reply directly to you so you can edit your comment in case you don't want to leave a link to your facebook lying around :]

And here's the Capital One Bowl pic in all its Tebow Jesus glory!

I understand that people are annoyed with all the publicity Tebow gets, but I think it's stupid when people hate him for it. There are a lot of college and even pro athletes who cry after championship losses and if it were anyone else this wouldn't even be a story. If this was a Michigan player crying we would probably be applauding him for his passion. I think that Tebow is a great player and a great person as well. People shouldn't hate him just because some people blow him out of proportion. I thought Tebow handled the loss with a lot of class. The first thing he did in the post-game interview, literally less than a minute after the game had ended, was congratulate Alabama and praise their players and coaches.

Am I the only one who doesn't think it's funny?

It doesn't make sense.

Yes, cried rhymes with died, the whole Tebow/Jesus thing, ha ha, but it just seems like a really forced attempt at humor because "he cried for our sins"... what does that even mean?
