Happy Thankgiving from the TebowZone

Tim Tebow, an athlete dads should be thankful for ( This is Old But I liked It)

College football has become an environment in which money and winning squelch basic human responsibility, compassion and morals, as the horror at Penn State has just shown us. The NCAA also cannot keep its student-athletes from being criminals or taking money from boosters, and the rules are a selectively enforced mess.

But even the NCAA draws the line somewhere. After then-Florida quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow sent national television viewers Googling the Gospel verses he cited with markers on his eye-black, the NCAA created the “Tim Tebow Rule”: No more in-game evangelizing via Sharpie.

This is one drop in the ocean of insanity surrounding Tebow, now the starting quarterback for the Denver Broncos. Tebow is simultaneously the most hated and most beloved player in the NFL.

Sports fans can debate anything for hours, and Tebow provides plenty of fodder for debate. Most intriguingly, he turns in QB performances that range from unimpressive to awful, but then somehow he wins: The Broncos are 4-1 with Tebow under center, after starting the season 1-4. He prompts endless and often conflicting questions: Did the Broncos waste their first-round draft pick on him? Should he be starting? Is he overhyped by the media? Will he create an alternative model for pro quarterbacks?

But none of these football debates explains why Tebow is so polarizing. The old college eye-black explains it.

Tebow is a Christian who is open about it. His critics harp on the openness. Drew Magary, a writer at the sports website Deadspin, bristled at Tebow’s customary touchdown celebration: quietly dropping to one knee and praying to God. “The praying after that Jets TD was too much for me,” Magary wrote of Tebow’s last-minute 20-yard, game-winning touchdown run last week. “Like that guy doesn’t know there will be cameras on him the second he drops to one knee. He’s showing off his piety, dammit. If I were a Jesus freak, I’d be pissed at him for rallying all the Jesus haters to a common cause.”

Predictably, opposing players have taken to “Tebowing” in mockery — one Lions defender did the knee bow after sacking the Broncos quarterback. That’s part of the game. But the mocking of Tebow is not the issue. It’s the sheer hatred shown by opposing fans and especially commenters on sites like ESPN.com. And that hatred has spawned blind loyalty from a different slice of the population.

Pardon the analogy — and please don’t take it too far — but in recent memory the closest thing to the Tebow effect was the fierce love-hate reaction to Sarah Palin after John McCain picked her as his running mate in 2008.

In the press gallery of the GOP convention, I saw the visceral revulsion of most reporters to Palin. There were and are plenty of valid critiques of Palin, but the initial reaction was deeply personal.

Off-camera, I saw veteran national television anchors seriously posit that Palin’s new baby was not really her own. I saw liberals posit that Palin shouldn’t abandon her large family to run for VP. Baby Trig and the other four kids were the Rorschach test.

The standard liberal attack on conservatives is to call them hypocrites. But when Palin cradled her baby with Down syndrome, it was an in-your-face-message: She really believes in family values and in the sanctity of life.

Tebow offends for similar reasons. He doesn’t just talk about God and Christ — he actually seems to believe this stuff. There are no stories of his sleeping around at Florida, or on the road as a millionaire superstar. Thanking and praising God seem to come naturally to him.

And similar to Palin’s love of Trig, every time Tebow succeeds at football and life, he indicts the institution of abortion. Planned Parenthood scolded CBS ahead of the Super Bowl in 2010 when it was made public that Tim Tebow and his mother would appear in a pro-family commercial. The pro-choice Left feared Mrs. Tebow would discuss how she disregarded doctors’ recommendations that she abort baby Tim. The average comment-board troll may not think about this, but it still matters that Tebow’s very existence is a pro-life testament.

Like many young fathers, I’ve just realized an unexpected blessing of having young children: I’ve begun watching football again on Sundays, an ideal family activity on cold, dark afternoons. But with players’ classless (and at times obscene) celebrations, frequent poor sportsmanship, unsavory personal lives, and even criminal records, a parent worries what kids will take away from the game.

But then there’s Tim Tebow. Tebow doesn’t have the skills that make quarterbacks successful in today’s NFL, but he has a preternatural will to win. He profusely thanks his teammates. He also seems to live a life of virtue. He’s the kind of guy you hope your sons will become.

Well, not completely: I hope my boys will throw a tighter spiral.

Tim Tebow the Billion Dollar Man?

There’s been no hiding the interest ‘The League’ has in signing Free Agent Quarterback Tim Tebow. The emphasis has been on making certain it’s a Football League Tim would be proud to call Home.

But speculation has begun to build; so this would be a good time to set a few points.

First, ‘The League’ is firm in its Player Salary Cap. Currently that’s $2 Million a Season. With the Standard $400K Signing Bonus. (Per Player. Teams don’t currently have Caps. League Minimum, by the way, is $440K. That includes Minor League Players. It’s important Roster moves are based entirely on what’s best for the Teams and Players. Not arbitrary Financial constraints.)

All Contracts are a minimum of 2 years. The league’s “Lifetime Plan” kicks in at 2 years of Service Time. So basically, every signed Player qualifies. At 10 years Service Time, the opportunity working in the League Services Organization is set at 60% of the Player’s highest single Season Base Salary. This would be true for Tim, the same as any other Player who signs.

There are various Bonuses. Annual Roster Bonuses, Playoff Bonuses, etc. In addition, every Player receives an average of 8% for all Merchandise Sales that bear their name, image, etc. This would also include Tim and this is Lifetime. It doesn’t end when the Playing Days are over.

These are very strong and competitive numbers. For a Player of Tim Tebow’s stature and popularity, these are numbers that mount. It’s a good Career for any Player.

But ‘The League’ will be, at its heart, a Fan-Owned Community Organization. This is why Players are given the opportunity for the “Lifetime Plan”. To afford them a chance to stay close to the game and the Fans for as long as they like. And doing so in ways that are huge boosts to the Communities. Particularly the young Fans.

This describes Tim Tebow’s life.

The $Billion-Plus figure that has been floating around in relation to a league offer package for Tim Tebow is accurate. All encompassed, it’s actually likely much higher than that over the lifetime. But it needs to be understood, the majority of this is support for various Charitable Activities near and dear to Tim. ‘The League’ is looking at a major long-term commitment. But it’s an easy one because support for these causes is the core mission for this league of the highest quality Football coupled with the highest commitment to the Communities.

Time and care is being taken to do this right. This highlights what’s being put together. But, as I’ve said numerous times, ‘The League’ is being built for a 100 years; not 100 days. So there has been no rush to force anything. All focus has been on laying groundwork such that Tim Tebow and every Coach, Player and Fan can understand how this league will be built, the standards by which it will operate, the impact it will have on Communities and the Game of Football and how and why it’s being built this way.

‘The League’ is being built to be fully owned by the Fans and to be a strong positive force for their Communities and for the Game itself. Assuring that all care necessary to be worthy of those Fans, Players, Coaches, Communities has been the single focus.

Week 12 NFL power rankings: Patriots, Packers pack 1-2 punch before meeting

<:article data-aop=”article” itemtype=”http://schema.org/NewsArticle” itemscope><:section data-aop=”articlebody” itemprop=”articleBody”>It’s back to “how convenient” time in this week’s NFL power rankings. Just like the league drew it up, right, to have a BCS/CFP-like feel with the Week 13 schedule? This week’s top team plays at the second team’s home on Sunday. Based on that, pay attention, because it just might be a preview of what we’ll see again in Super Bowl XLIX:

MORE: Playoff picture: Who’s in, who’s out | Broncos don’t have defense to win Super Bowl | Patriots have Super Bowl formula down | Can Cowboys’ defense maintain momentum | Gordon takes Browns to another level 

FANTASY: Top Waiver Wire pickups | Craziest Fantasy football performances | Fantasy’s most hated 

LINEMAKERS: Week 13 opening lines 

 

  • 1 New England Patriots (9-2)

     

    Last week: 1

    Why they’re here: LeGarrette Blount returning and scoring twice is pretty much what you would expect from the Patriot way. Bill Belichick knows he can pretty much interchange players everywhere, expect for quarterback and cornerback.

    What’s next: at Green Bay, where Tom Brady duels Aaron Rodgers for the first time.

     

  • 2 Green Bay Packers (8-3)

     

    Last week: 3

    Why they’re here: Jordy Nelson and their downfield passing game isn’t as invincible away from Green Bay, but they found they can deliver with Eddie Lacy and the power running game when they need it: see Minnesota.

    What’s next: vs. New England, when they will need all their Lambeau mojo.

     

  • 3 Denver Broncos (8-3)

     

    Last week: 4

    Why they’re here: C.J. Anderson is the latest feature back to step through their injury-riddled revolving door, and they needed every last rushing yard from him to escape with a victory against Miami. They need to play much better defense, stat.

    What’s next: at Kansas City, a Sunday night battle for best in the West.

     

  • 4 Arizona Cardinals (9-2)

     

    Last week: 2

    Why they’re here: Andre Ellington and the running game have done nothing of late, and it had their entire offense running into a wall in their most important game of the season in Seattle. This is a lingering concern for their playoff-win hopes.

    What’s next: at Atlanta, good avian matchup Ellington.

     

  • 5 Philadelphia Eagles (8-3)

     

    Last week: 7

    Why they’re here: LeSean McCoy is starting to look like the real Shady, and it helps when you face some bad run defenses such as Tennessee’s. They are revving up their scoring pace just in time for that Cowboys shootout.

    What’s next: at Dallas, which should make for a Thanksgiving offensive feast.

     

  • 6 Dallas Cowboys (8-3)

     

    Last week: 8

    Why they’re here: Dez Bryant made sure the Giants paid for not covering him well (or at all, really). Tony Romo led the rally to keep his team from falling into a classic trap game. Now it’s all about finishing against their top NFC East competition.

    What’s next: vs. Philadelphia, a game that cost them the division last season.

     

  • 7 Indianapolis Colts (7-4)

     

    Last week: 9

    Why they’re here: Andrew Luck is having a bit of a November slump as the points haven’t come easily the past two weeks while he’s been under pressure and without two key bail-out targets, Dwayne Allen and Ahmad Bradshaw. Still, the AFC South is easily theirs again.

    What’s next: vs. Washington, Luck vs. the Year 3 QB he’s lapped, RGIII.

     

  • 8 Cincinnati Bengals (7-3-1)

     

    Last week: 11

    Why they’re here: Andy Dalton will always have his critics until he wins a few playoff games. But he’s come through twice after his worst-ever game to still have them in first place with no breathing room from the three teams behind them.

    What’s next: at Tampa Bay, where they will try to stay road sizzling.

     

  • 9 Seattle Seahawks (7-4)

     

    Last week: 12

    Why they’re here: Bobby Wagner came back against Arizona, and made his impact felt by roaming all the over the field to stuff everything. He’s not just a top middle linebacker; he’s the heart of their defense, a key to staying playoff-bound.

    What’s next: at San Francisco, where there will be a lot of jive turkey talk.

     

  • 10 San Francisco 49ers (7-4)

     

    Last week: 10

    Why they’re here: Where would the Niners be without Anquan Boldin? Their offense has had a lot of dysfunction, but he has saved the day often with his gritty, clutch play. He’s the guy doing his best to reward all the great work the defense keeps doing.

    What’s next: vs. Seattle, not exactly a Thanksgiving family affair.

     

  • 11 Pittsburgh Steelers (7-4)

     

    Last week: 13

    Why they’re here: Ben Roethlisberger had a chance to shake off soreness with a bye, and just like every team in the loaded AFC North, the Steelers are in control of everything. They’re the only team in the division with a three-time Super Bowl QB.

    What’s next: vs. New Orleans, when it’s Big Ben vs. Cool Brees.

     

  • 12 Baltimore Ravens (6-5)

     

    Last week: 14

    Why they’re here: Steve Smith Sr. played a big part in their sweep of the lowly NFC South, his former division. They are just 3-4 otherwise, however, and their schedule has no more breaks. Being swept by the Bengals and splitting with the Steelers hasn’t helped.

    What’s next: vs. San Diego, a home game with huge wild-card implications.

     

  • 13 Kansas City Chiefs (7-4)

     

    Last week: 5

    Why they’re here: Will somebody make a big play for Alex Smith? At this point, tight end Travis Kelce is the only real concerning cover for opponents. Jamaal Charles does a lot to help Kansas City win, but sometimes, his dazzle is far from enough.

    What’s next: vs. Denver, a rematch they really need now.

     

  • 14 Detroit Lions (7-4)

     

    Last week: 6

    Why they’re here: Matthew Stafford is struggling again in an offense built to avoid that. The problem is, the supporting cast isn’t as good as it looks on paper. Weird to say, but they might not have enough passing pop to get back in the playoff mix.

    What’s next: vs. Chicago, when Stafford duels mirror image Jay Cutler on Thanksgiving.

     

  • 15 San Diego Chargers (7-4)

     

    Last week: 16

    Why they’re here: Marcus Gilchrist saved their playoff hopes with that interception against the Rams, but that was a temporary reprieve as the remaining schedule keeps raising the degree of difficulty. They need a red-hot Philip Rivers again.

    What’s next: at Baltimore, a daunting cross-country trip with much on the line.

     

  • 16 Miami Dolphins (6-5)

     

    Last week: 15

    Why they’re here: Ryan Tannehill was up to the task of dueling Peyton Manning, but their defense just ran out of gas in a tough matchup in Denver. They put up a lot of points, but they still slid down from the pack of AFC wild-card hopefuls

    What’s next: at New York Jets, a Monday night game they must win.

     

  • 17 Cleveland Browns (7-4)

     

    Last week: 18

    Why they’re here: Isaiah Crowell proved why Ben Tate was expendable, and Crowell’s production plus the triumphant return of Josh Gordon helped Brian Hoyer overcome a roller-coaster game in Atlanta. They’re still fourth best in the AFC North, however.

    What’s next: at Buffalo, in a battle for Lake Erie.

     

  • 18 Houston Texans (5-6)

     

    Last week: 17

    Why they’re here: Ryan Mallett’s run was fun while it lasted. It’s back to that other Ryan, Fitzpatrick, whom they replaced because they didn’t think they could get to the playoff with him. That’s still the case after falling under .500 in a top-heavy AFC.

    What’s next: vs. Tennessee, hosting those old Houston Oilers again.

     

  • 19 Buffalo Bills (6-5)

     

    Last week: 22

    Why they’re here: Doug Marrone did an amazing coaching job in Week 12. His displaced team was thrown off in practice all week, but it still produced one of the Bills’ greatest results in a long time. Playoffs are a long shot, but he’s a keeper.

    What’s next: vs. Cleveland, when they hope to be lake effect-free.

     

  • 20 New Orleans Saints (5-6)

     

    Last week: 20

    Why they’re here: Drew Brees will be the first to tell you he’s had a disappointing season, as that pick-six against Baltimore changed the game and led to a shocking third straight home loss. Still, there’s no need to panic because they remain with an easy road to the playoffs.

    What’s next: at Pittsburgh, where a break from the Superdome might actually help.

     

  • 21 Atlanta Falcons (4-7)

     

    Last week: 19

    Why they’re here: Julio Jones found the end zone again, but the Falcons found another way to lose in a game in the final minute. The heat keeps going on and off Mike Smith, who still somehow has a first-place team.

    What’s next: vs. Arizona, when they can’t afford another heartbreaking loss.

     

  • 22 St. Louis Rams (4-7)

     

    Last week: 21

    Why they’re here: Tavon Austin gave their offense a little spark in San Diego, as they have decided to go with more speed and quickness with him and dynamic rookie back Tre Mason touching the ball more. Unfortunately, neither can play QB.

    What’s next: vs. Oakland, in a battle for Los Angeles.

     

  • 23 Chicago Bears (5-6)

     

    Last week: 24

    Why they’re here: Matt Forte is their only way offensively to get into the playoffs. He just does everything right, even when Jay Cutler seems to keep doing everything wrong. They’re still a bit scary, because everyone in the NFC knows they can score and get hot in a hurry.

    What’s next: at Detroit, a winnable game they must steal to keep hope alive.

     

  • 24 Minnesota Vikings (4-7)

     

    Last week: 25

    Why they’re here: Greg Jennings, Charles Johnson and Kyle Rudolph are the support system Teddy Bridgewater needs to finish his rookie season on a high and give them great confidence they can be a true NFC wild-card contender in 2015.

    What’s next: vs. Carolina, when they will have revenge on their mind.

     

  • 25 Carolina Panthers (3-7-1)

     

    Last week: 23

    Why they’re here: As much praise as Cam Newton and Ron Rivera got for being worthy leaders of this team last season, they are getting the same kind of criticism this year. The truth is, the lack of talent deck has been stacked against both of them.

    What’s next: at Minnesota, that other team named for a state.

     

  • 26 New York Giants (3-8)

     

    Last week: 26

    Why they’re here: Odell Beckham Jr., you are ridiculous. But quick, name someone else who’s giving the Giants’ passing offense a post-Victor Cruz lift at the moment. Nope. You can’t. Not even Eli Manning, who’s looked better in a bad year because of OBJ.

    What’s next: at Jacksonville, where Tom Coughlin and Rashad Jennings used to be.

     

  • 27 Washington Redskins (3-8)

     

    Last week: 27

    Why they’re here: So Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins didn’t work. Colt McCoy did the best he could. As they have exhausted all three options, they might as well give Pierre Garcon a chance. Heck, he was their finest-looking passer in San Francisco.

    What’s next: at Indianapolis, where they will see a real 2012 first-round QB.

     

  • 28 New York Jets (2-9)

     

    Last week: 28

    Why they’re here: Rex Ryan is getting support from his players to keep his job. But maybe Ryan shouldn’t want to coach a team where players don’t show that on the field and he lacks a front office that makes his job easier.

    What’s next: vs. Miami, making it back-to-back Monday night games.

     

  • 29 Tennessee Titans (2-9)

     

    Last week: 29

    Why they’re here: Zach Mettenberger can fling it. Once he can harness that arm and throw in some accuracy and decision-making, the Titans are on to something. It’s clear that Jake Locker was a bust; Mettenberger might end up as a real steal.

    What’s next: at Houston, making it a Texans two-step for 2014.

     

  • 30 Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-9)

     

    Last week: 30

    Why they’re here: Doug Martin returned from his ankle injury with a thud. No matter what Josh McCown does in getting the ball to Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson, there’s just too much pressure on an older QB in a one-dimensional attack.

    What’s next: vs. Cincinnati, when Lovie meets Marvin.

     

  • 31 Jacksonville Jaguars (1-10)

     

    Last week: 31

    Why they’re here: Chris Clemons had three sacks to remind us of their brightest spot in a terrible season: The pass rush. It’s deep and Seattle-like, not a surprise under Gus Bradley. Now the Jaguars need to work on getting the rest down.

    What’s next: vs. New York Giants, when they get to go after Eli.

     

  • 32 Oakland Raiders (1-10)

     

    Last week: 32

    Why they’re here: Derek Carr drove them downfield and delivered that game-winner vs. Kansas City. They’ll need another victory, however, to rise out of the league basement this season.

    What’s next: at St. Louis, a Relocation Bowl

Blessed Union? Duggars Lobbying Tim Tebow’s Mom To Set Him Up With Jana! Their Secret Meetings Revealed

At 24 years old, eldest Duggar daughter Jana has already seen her younger siblings Jessa, 22, and Jill, 23, leave the family home to get married. But RadarOnline.com has learned that Jana’s wait could be well worth it: According to a new report in Star magazine, Jana’s dad Jim Bob has his sights set on NFL player Tim Tebow for Jana’s lucky match. And he and Michelle have already had secret meetings in Arkansas with Tebow’s mom!

“Jim Bob is no dummy,” an insider told Star. “Tim would be a perfect addition to the family and a feather in his cap. Can you imagine the press attention a Tim-Jana wedding would get?”

And he’s already boasting about getting close to Tim’s family. On November 11, he posted a photo of himself and Michelle with Tim’s mom, Pam Tebow, after they met at a Loving Choices Pregnancy Centers fundraiser in Springdale, Arkansas, on November 11.

“A great lady and a great cause!” the Duggars wrote on Facebook. “We enjoyed hearing Pam Tebow share tonight.”

Pam even visited the 19 Kids & Counting stars at their Arkansas home the next day!

Fans are already on board with the union, which seems like a perfect match on paper: Both fervent Christians, Jana and admitted virgin Tim both want to save sex for marriage.

As Tim recently explained, he claims he is most “attracted to girls whose hearts are the biggest thing about them.

While waiting for an NFL team to admit the entire league was wrong about him and offer him a roster spot as a backup quarterback, Tim Tebow is earning a living as a college football analyst for ESPN.

Even though he isn’t in shoulder pads and Tebowing after touchdowns, he hasn’t lost his popularity with some fans.

When two women appeared on the set of “SEC Nation” in Knoxville, Tenn., on Saturday, holding a sign that read, “We’re only here for Tebow,” the former Jets quarterback brought one of them a piece of cake.

And then gave her a hug.

She immediately went to pieces.

2014 NFL Power Rankings: Week 12

For most of this season, the Broncos have been considered shoo-ins to win the AFC West. It’s safe to say that’s no longer the case.

 

After Denver’s Week 11 dud in St. Louis and Kansas City’s dramatic victory over Seattle, the division rivals are tied at 7-3. Are the Broncos, No. 1 here just three weeks ago, still superior in the eyes of ESPN’s Power Panel (a group of more than 80 writers, editors and TV personalities)? Yes, but not by much.

 

Denver, which has now lost two of three, dropped one spot to No. 4. Kansas City, winners of five straight, jumped five spots to No. 5.

 

Will the Chiefs keep rising? After a Thursday night date at winless Oakland, they can gain more momentum by beating Denver in Week 13 — a game that suddenly has major implications.

Kyle Orton was 5-of-13 for 47 yards and a sack against the Dolphins’ blitz Thursday. The Jets, who blitz on one-third of dropbacks, will likely follow suit.

How bad is the NFC South? The 4-6 Falcons, with their minus-17 point margin and league-worst defensive efficiency rating, currently lead the division. By rule, someone has to win.

Minnesota is 0-6-1 in its past seven divisional road games, so at least the Vikings get to host the red-hot Packers this week. They’ve got that going for them, which is nice.

How did the Rams-Broncos game hurt the Raiders? Week 13 at St. Louis seemed like Oakland’s best bet for a win, plus Denver now needs to try in Week 17.

Tim Tebow Talks Future Wife, Legacy

Officials from the recently launched outdoor A-11 Football League have said they would be interested in recruiting former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow. (Reuters File Image)Officials from the recently launched outdoor A-11 Football League have said they would be interested in recruiting former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow.


While Tim Tebow, 27, has been selected by People magazine as one of 2014′s Sexiest Men Alive, he admits that being deemed attractive is not his focus.

“Of course I want to look nice and have a good appearance, but more than the outer shell, I want people to want to be around me for my heart,” he told People. “To me, it’s especially important to have a heart for kids who are hurting. Being able to make a difference is something that people should love, and that’s something that’s sexy about people.”

The evangelical Christian football star turned SEC college football analyst, has made work with his Tim Tebow foundation a priority. The foundation builds playrooms in children’s hospitals all over the world, grants sick children’s wishes and works to aid in the process of adoption.

Instead of his outward appearance, Tebow wants people to focus on the humanitarian legacy he is working to build.

“I hope that when I’m 90 years old, I’ve accomplished a legacy that isn’t all about me. I hope it’s a legacy about the people who our foundation helps,” Tebow told People. “We’re about to open a hospital in the Philippines. We’ll have this hospital where we can help kids who are hurting; healing them physically but encouraging them emotionally and spiritually as well.”

He added, “we can make a difference in their lives.”

Tebow was also questioned about finding a wife one day after years of telling the public that he is a single man. However, he is looking for more than a pretty face.

“Of course it’s important to be attracted to someone, but it really needs to be about who they are on the inside. I’ve always been attracted to girls whose hearts are the biggest thing about them,” he told People. “People can be very sweet and kind to others who can do a lot for them. I want to find a girl who will be the same person to those who can’t do anything for her in return.”

He added, “It’s this way for myself: It’s about how we act when no one is watching.”

Tebow has been the subject of countless headlines since winning the Heisman Trophy as a QB at the University of Florida. When looking at his career two years ago, Tebow said he wants to use it as a platform instead of something to define who he is.

“Being able to score touchdowns and win games is a way to get a platform. But, ultimately, if that’s what you do in your life and that’s what your life is based on, I don’t know, I feel like that’s a little bit of a meaningless life,” he previously told The Washington Post. “But if you can take that and do something with it like a lot of athletes do, then you’re having a life of success, a life of meaning.”

 

 

Tim Tebow Has Hugh Freeze High On His Gator Coaching List

Everyone who follows the Florida Gators has an opinion on who the new head coach should be, including Tim Tebow. During his weekly radio show on Jacksonville’s 1010XL, Tebow discussed Florida’s now-vacant position, and who he believes UF athletic director Jeremy Foley should hire.

The first name that comes to mind is a guy who’s built an SEC West program into a national contender. No, he’s not talking about Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen, but rather his arch-rival, Ole Miss’ Hugh Freeze.

The first name that comes to mind would be Hugh Freeze – Tebow on who should be the new head coach at Florida

 

I’ve discussed this at length with fellow Gators. If I were going into the state of Mississippi to pluck a coach, it would be Freeze.

To succeed at the University of Florida you not only need to be able to coach Xs and Os, but you also have to recruit lights-out. Mullen appears to be more of a developer of lower-tier talent, whereas Freeze has shown he can draw top-tier players to a school without an elite football history. He’s been able to take those players and mold them into a team that can compete with the heavyweights of the West – Alabama, LSU and Auburn – in a shorter amount of time.

Freeze, in my opinion, brings a toolbox better equipped for what UF’s program requires to compete for championships than Mullen.

Yes, Tim Tebow is 6’3″ and 244 lbs. of solid muscle. Wherever he goes, women try to fix him up with their daughters – or try to nab him for themselves.

It’s those looks that inspired PEOPLE to select Tebow as one of 2014′s Sexiest Men Alive. But for the former football star turned TV commentator, sexiness is about more than a handsome face or a good body.

“Of course I want to look nice and have a good appearance,” he tells PEOPLE. “But more than the outer shell, I want people to want to be around me for my heart. To me, it’s especially important to have a heart for kids who are hurting. Being able to make a difference is something that people should love, and that’s something that’s sexy about people.”

So, is Tebow anywhere close to settling down?

Maintaining His Body

Although Tebow isn’t currently playing in the NFL, he still prioritizes his physical fitness with cardio and weight training. During his PEOPLE interview, he opted for steamed salmon over steak.

“I train about six days a week,” he says. “I’m training at the same intensity as I did when I was playing football. I’ve done it for my entire life and I love it. I try to be active, and to keep my body in the best shape I can possibly be in.”

“Being physically fit helps me think better and feel better,” he continues. “I only have this one body. I want to make the most impact that I can; taking care of my body helps me help others. That’s a big reason why I do it.”

Leaving a Legacy

In addition to his work as a commentator for the SEC Network, Tebow spotlights feel-good human interest stories on Good Morning America. An outspoken Christian, he administers the Tim Tebow Foundation, a organization that as an adoption aid program, builds “Timmy’s Playrooms” in children’s hospitals around the world, grants wishes to sick children and teens, and has built a five-story hospital in Davao City, Philippines.

“I hope that when I’m 90 years old, I’ve accomplished a legacy that isn’t all about me. I hope it’s a legacy about the people who our foundation helps. We’re about to open a hospital in the Philippines. I can’t wait. I was born there. We’ll have this hospital where we can help kids who are hurting; healing them physically but encouraging them emotionally and spiritual as well. We can make a difference in their lives.”
