But what can you say about Tim Tebow? My goodness! I'm not taking anything away from Heisman winner Sam Bradford, but if I'm going into battle -- put Tebow or Colt McCoy in front of me. The guy is one of the gutsiest athletes I've ever seen.
His speech after that early loss to Ole Miss should go down in sports history. He put himself on the line -- and he did what he said he would do. What a dream season!
And what a fine young man he is, too. I couldn't help but laugh when he got the Unsportsmanlike Conduct call late in the game for "gator chopping" at one of the OU players who was obviously trash-talking him.
That brings me to another subject. If I were a coach, I would hold a school for all my players -- with the title of the class being "Don't say anything stupid to the media." For the OU player to come out last week saying Tebow would be the 4th best quarterback in the Big 12 has to go under the heading of "STUPID." Even if Tebow's skill-set would rank him in that way, his intangibles take him to SUPER level. And those intangibles were stoked last night!
I find it humorous that some people are being so critical of Mack Brown. He's posturing, just like any coach in his position would. To hear people say he is whining is silly. I haven't heard him act whiny. Just a bit indignant about the process.
