Honestly, does everyone think this guy is THIS perfect all the time? I think not! Andrew, you are the Seminoles beat writer...why are you writing about Tebow? It figures that the Gators could manuever the NCAA into changing the rules for their beloved Tebow. Amazing!

The NCAA leaders are finally coming to their senses! Tebow is an amazing young man who should be celebrated for his demeanor both on and off the field. In these days of the 'Me Generation', it is great to see someone who is a fine role model. I can not believe how many people don't like him because of religion. Are you people opposed to freedom of religion and freedom of expression?

I am humbled, inspired and encouraged to see this young man lead by example, the youth of today. My prayer is that he will be given the strength to resist the temptations that are sure to come his way and that he will accomplish his goal of helping others with the msot important message of Jesus Christ. Tim....Lead On.

I am both surprised and proud that an ACC/Seminole fan would write such a positive story about Tebow. I am sure people are getting tired of hearing about Tim, but the truth is...he is the real deal. It is through Tebow's faith and through serving others, that makes him such a great leader. May God continue to bless Tebow...he truly deserves it.
Oh yeah BTW, good article Andrew!

WAAAAAAAAAAA!!!! Jealous? All you 'Noles would jizz in your pants if Tim Tebow wore the garnet and gold. Too bad for you... enjoy another loss this year.

I wish all young college sports participants would stop for a few seconds and realize that the purpose of their attending college in the first place is NOT to be drafted by the NFL or NBA but to finish and walk off that stage with a diploma that might allow them to obtain a good paying future job. I'd dare say that the percentages are greatly against (1) Being drafted in the first place, and (2) If drafted, amounting to a hill of merde and being ever heard from again. Get your diploma first and then if you don't make it big time in professional sports [ As most don't ] You have something to fall back on besides a job loading and unloading trucks or driving one. A college diploma doesn't guarantee you a big job either but at least it gets you a chance at one.

I'll tell you why people oppose to Tim. It's everything! Everything about him urks people because he is the whole package. They are SO jealous that he is successful in everything he does on and off the field. They have questioned his abilities all along the way and he always answers those questions. These people are mad because he beats their team every year and runs over their defensive backs. I guess it makes them feel better to make fun of him but it all boils down to one thing...Jealousy. If you don't like Tim don't read the articles and then blog something nasty and say that there are too many articles about him. You haters are obsessing!

Religion is bad because it stunts intellectual growth and cripples human interaction; because it is an engine of control and oppression (mostly of women), and because it alienates people from the real, physical world and all its wonders. It narrows horizons, engenders isolation and fear, and strives in most cases to limit and control the experience and value of emotional, sexual and physical pleasure. It has been the driving force of wars for thousands of years causing deaths over a fictional being.

Any human being that preaches religion should be seen as an enemy to the evolution of the human species.

Sorry Tebow should not be allowed to miss school to preach. This is a state funded university, not a private university.

You miss the whole point of the article. Tebow is staying in school to help spread his faith. The more publicity about his faith & what he contributes to charity - well, it just may rub off on some of today's youth. What's so wrong about that?

TB is great, I wish him well, except one loss a year to 'Noles. I wish we had him. But when he said people are looking for "change" I thought, uh oh, I hope he's doesn't support you know who. That would be a bummer.

THANK YOU!! I'm glad SOMEBODY finally said something about this issue! My father and I get furious when we hear of student athletes leaving early for the pros. What about the full-ride scholarship that the school gave them? The school gives these kids a full ride in exchange for 4 years of play. Every school tries to build a solid program & it usually takes 3-4 years for each athlete to develop (there are a few exceptions: Tebow, Harvin). To me, an athlete leaving early is in breach of contract if he's getting a full scholarship. And to Flying Sqirrel's point, a degree from higher education, to me says a lot more about a person than what that person does on the gridiron.

All you Tebow haters need to take a few minutes and take a look at yourself in the mirror. Maybe then you will be able to figure out why you hate so much on a person who has done so much good. It's alot easier to lay on a couch and criticize someone then to get off your butt and go make a difference in the world.

Once the NCAA finishes their investigation the Gator program will be gone anyway. He needs to be praying!

I love looking at myself in the mirror everyday... and I am criticizing from a chair thank you... I am a man of science not faith, and Tebow is a threat to science
