Say what you will about Tim Tebow, but at least the man has goals. For example, he wants to become the first ever three-time Heisman winner to never start a game in the NFL.
The Florida quarterback told the FLORIDA TIMES-UNION that, win or lose in the BCS Championship Game, he’s leaning toward returning for his senior season at Gainesville.
One would think that it has something to do with there being a lot more bikini-clad hotties in Florida than there would be in QB-hungry, first-pick-bound Detroit. But benchwarming for the Lions pays a heck of a lot better, money which could be used for his father’s missionary work in the Philippines. What’s a QB to do? Wishy-washy words from a jorts-wearing Tebow, after the jump.
“If I was leaning any way, it would be to coming back,” Tebow said on Sunday, the night the Gators were paired with Oklahoma in the BCS title game. “I’m going to look and talk to coaches and see what they say. But I have no idea right now.”
Tebow, who has a chance to become just the second two-time Heisman Trophy winner on Saturday, said he enjoys being a Gator but is also intrigued with playing on the next level and being able to use the increased exposure and financial windfall to help his ministry.
“I don’t want to leave here, but if I get blessed and have an opportunity to do a lot of things financially with that, I could do so many great things as far as organizations and community work, stuff I’ve always dreamed of doing with that money,” Tebow said.
Let’s look at this rationally. On one hand, you’ve got the chance to return as a conquering hero on campus, and have a very real shot at back-to-back national titles. On the other hand, Jesus. On the first hand, he’ll have his pick of UF’s choicest co-eds, and get to spend another year in the sunshiny paradise of Florida. On the other hand is, again, Jesus.
I know one church that’ll be torn.
