Tim Tebow calls a touchdown before ball even leaves passer’s hand

Tim Tebow may have (okay, definitely) fizzled as an NFL quarterback, but he was an absolute legend at the college level. Now, it appears that Tebow has taken some of his mystical collegiate powers to the broadcaster’s booth.

Tebow made his first appearance as a game analyst in Wednesday’s Peach Bowl, and he didn’t take long to make an impression. Just a minute into the contest, TCU ran a trick play against Mississippi, and Tebow was all over it:

Did you catch that? As soon as TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin flips the ball laterally to wide receiver Kolby Listenbee, Tebow calls the play: “Double pass.”

Play-by-play man Joe Tessitore then catches on, but even as Tessitore acknowledges that Tebow could be correct, the former Gators star has already foreseen the result: “Touchdown.”

Bingo! The ball hadn’t even left Listenbee’s hand when Tebow flatly proclaimed that a score was imminent, and sure, enough, the Horned Frog hit teammate Aaron Green in the end zone.

Very impressive, especially given that, as mentioned, the Peach Bowl was Tebow’s maiden voyage as a live game analyst. He had spent the fall working in studios for the SEC Network, and obviously, Tebow hasn’t lost all the magic we remember from his Florida career.

    The writer is a classless jerk right up there with Cindy Boren.
