    Yep, ol' "Sleeze Slurppier"...another big pro-caste coach (save for his QBs). Tebow is the best football player in the NCAA and an outstanding young man. I hope Tim wins the Heisman again this season...and I'm no fan of the "Flowerida Gayturds".[​IMG]

    I can't believe the media asked him if he was still a virgin and saving himself for marriage. That is totally inappropriate, and it was the topic on several sports shows yesterday. I have been busy with taking classes in the summer and thinking I am missing out on sports talk and they are really digging for news. The guy is Christian and really dedicated to his religion, of course he is probably saving himself for marriage. I don't think I could have personally did that (although I wish I would have) but Tebow is a better man than I am, and he sends a good example to kids. It is ridiculous that the media seems to have a problem with him because of his Christian values. At least he handled the question well

    I think Tebow didn't mind talking about how he is a virgin. RB Shaun Alexander is also a strong Christian who donated lots of time and money to charity like Tebow has and will. Alexander was candid about the fact that he waited until his wedding at age 24 to have sex in a book. You can Google "Shaun Alexander" and "24 year old virgin". The media probably shouldn't ask though and let these guys share their personal decisions- to set examples for others to follow- when they are ready to do so themselves.

    It is amazing that anyone in Shaun Alexander and Tim Tebow's position could control themselves with so many beautiful women flocking to them. I had one opportunity in college with an attractive woman and didn't resist the opportunity, but wish I waited. This is especially because it brings more regrets for me because my girl is a strong Christian and waited for me. Monogamy is what God intends for us.

    Mad [​IMG] for Tim Tebow! He is a testament to the the way God wants us to live our lives and uses his position to help people.

    I think Tebow set a new SEC record... 51 rushing TDs to Herschel's 49!

    Tebow is a true Wildcat QB hybred RB/QB. If not Gerhart, I would like Tebow to get number his 2nd Heisman. I wouldn't mind if McCoy or Clausen somehow got the Heisman either!

    "Touchdown" Tim did indeed break Walker's all-time (SEC) TD record, however the UGA DWFs are quick to mention that Herschel set the record in three years (vs. Tebow's 4).

    Yeah DD but Herschel who I consider one of the greatest college running backs didn't have to worry about throwing the football and running an offense.

    I respect Tim Tebow as a player and a man, and wish him well in his NFL career, but in the back of my mind I'm bitter that he went to Florida, thereby helping a mostly black team to great success. I'm always thinking 1) what if he went to Iowa or Nebraska or some other fairly white friendly team, and 2) where would Florida be without him.

    i saw a draft side, don't remember which one projecting Tebow as a second round pick at... H-back (getting the tough yards etc...) basically a late Mike Alstott role... WTF.

    Maybe he'll get the Matt Jones treatment, and be forced to be a wideout or, like you mention, backrow, an H-back. Of course Matt could never be an "athlete quarterback", no way he was as good as Vince Young, Kordell Stewart, or (insert favorite quotaback here).

    I still don't understand why Matt Jones wasn't allowed to play quarterback in the pros.  He has the size and top athletic ability.  I know guys like Crouch and Frost were supposedly too short and got moved to other positions but what was the deal with Jones?

    He was never considered at the QB position, since he was definitely run-first in the Hogs offense, that's how it was designed. At the QB position, that's how it seems to work for both races. On the black side, for every Vince Young and Michael Vick, there is a Brad Smith or Pat White. But I contend that Matt Jones was a better QB than either Young or Vick (not to mention Smith or White) but was immediately cast as a wideout (or TE) at the combine, and he chose to accept it. So he is partially to blame.

    Your right FootballDad. Matt, Erich Crouch as well as Hester have to take some of the blame for the situation they were or are in. And congrats on becoming a GURU!!!

    Vince Young and Michael Vick were considered "projects" coming into the league.  Neither of them were good quarterbacks but were drafted on potential and affletic ability.  Pat White and Brad Smith would never even have a chance at qb.

    Tebow is right behind Gerhart for my favorite player in college football right now. I am really eager to see him perform in combine, pro day work outs and post season bowl games. He is a player the caste whore media loves to hate for obvious reasons and are all ready trying to limit his potential in the NFL.

    [​IMG] Touche!

    This garbage about Tebow playing H-Back, FB is such caste crapola. The guy has more talent than the "affletes" mentioned above...speed, intelligence, size/power, grit, etc. He should be one of the first QBs drafted. Yes, he CAN play RB or FB, but should be given a chance at QB.

    I hope Tebow gets to play in the NFL as a quarterback or at least a runningback (not fullback) and prove all the doubters wrong. It disgusts me of how the NFL "experts" tear him down like he can't do anything in the NFL except be a fullback.


    I am watching ESPN right now and I can't believe a majority of fans watch this stuff leading up to the game, the games are already long enough (with usually pathetic performances), having to watch this crap will make you a dumber person. In fact I feel dumber because I watched it today. I am not surprised that the majority of fans are so stupid. 3 racist black guys and 2 white guys, one being Mike Ditka. We all know White guys can degrade White players but Mike Ditka wasn't bad today.

    They were talking about if the Wildcat would stay or not and about how Miami is the only team dedicated to it. Then they talked about how Pat White isn't being used because in the Wildcat you need someone that can run up the middle take punishment (which Pat White can't do, I agree he is more of a run to the outside type guy).

    Then Mike Ditka said "well thats why you get the kid from Florida to run it and he can run up the middle and pass" . The black guys pretty much told him to get the hell out of here with that crap like he was out of his mind for thinking Tebow could do anything in the Pros.

    I have been wondering why I keep hearing from peole that "Tebow is a great college player but will be nothing in the pros, maybe a fullback"

    They talk about how great he is on Saturdays (pretty much to the point that dwf's are tired of hearing about him) and then tear him down on Sundays. Everyone is believing what Mel Kiper says like he is the Nostradamus of football scouting and everything he says is written in stone. They have built this guy up over the past few years only to tear him down once he goes pro.

    Mike Ditka had a great point, that Tebow would be a perfect fit for the Wildcat. The black guys said themselves you need a player that can pass and run up the middle and take punishment. What player can do that right now? Are they expecting Ronnie Brown to become a better passer? Or are they expecting Pat White to bulk up and become more physical? I can't think of any other quarterback that embraces contact while running like Tebow. Most run to the outside and try to avoid contact.

    They keep trying to do the same thing with all the great White college athletes, that they are only great at the college level and nothing more. Then when coaches screw over players like Mike Hass it confirms this false belief (because according to dwfs, the coaches "always play the best players"...even on teams like the Bucs). When in reality, if Hass was given a real shot to play he would be a good player.Edited by: dwid

    The media bashing of Tebow is gaining momentum.

    http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news;_ylt=ArCBA5nYLvP_WhS_lwrWj7lDubYF?slug=cr-inconvenienttruths112509&prov=yhoo&type=lgns

    (snip)

    But former Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins coach Jimmy Johnson came out just as vehemently against Tebow in a series of radio interviews this week, arguing the negatives of the Florida quarterback.


    "I don't think Tebow can play in a pro style of offense â€" not quarterback,"Â￾ Johnson said in an interview with Sporting News radio. "I think a team that's going to look at Tim Tebow, they're going to make one of two decisions. If they're going to bring him into their style of play, with their coaching staff, they've got to project him to be maybe an H-back.


    "If you're going to take Tim Tebow, and you're going to say ‘OK, I'm going to have him be our quarterback,' you might as well get rid of your coaching staff and hire a spread offense coach. So bring in a new coaching staff â€" bring in Urban Meyer with him, and run that style of offense if he's going to be your quarterback. Because he can't play in a pro style of offense."Â￾

    Amazing, Johnson sure didn't mince words.

    FWIW, JJ is high on Josh Freeman, he really likes him. During the halftime of the Saints-Bucs game he exclaimed Freeman was the long term answer for Tampa at its Quotaback position. Other than the opening drive of the game, Freeman struggled to put it politely. The Saints came out with a very basic non-pressure defense, not to mention a busted coverage on the TD pass by Freeman. To be fair he did make a nice pass on the play. After the Saints decided to mix things up a little on defense, running the pro style offense, that Johnson doubts Tebow could run, befuddled and bewildered Freeman to no end.
