Tim Tebow is no longer deaf to the media. Tebow is finally listening. He is going to change-up his mechanics in order to help better prepare himself for playing at the next level. I knew you had it in you Tim. For the past four years, Tim Tebow has dominated college football unlike any other has, or at least in recent memory. He won the Heisman Trophy as a sophomore and was a finalist on two other occasions. Not to mention he won 2 National Titles and should have won a 3rd this year minus one bad half.
Tebow has always possessed the skill to block out his critics. At the same time he also has the ability to block out anything that he does not want to hear. That includes advice from people who are trying to help him. This is a flaw. He has refused to fix his awkward mechanics for years now. And really can you blame the guy? He saw no repercussions as he continued to dominate the college stratosphere for half a decade. The whole story of Tebow kind of reminds me of another big name quarterback. A guy by the name of Favre. Maybe you have heard of him.
Both guys are consummate winners and show the will and determination of a champion every time they step on that football field. They also are two of the most stubborn people of all time. Refusing to listen to coaches who are there to help them improve their games. I never quite understood why Tebow was so stubborn. He has always seemed like such a good guy. Favre on the other hand, his stubbornness makes complete sense to me. Favre has always been about numero uno and will continue to be that way for years to come. Well Mr. Tebow has finally gotten over himself and listened.
With his work ethic and the phenomenal coaching that he will be receiving, maybe he can turn into a mediocre quarterback at the next level. Work ethic is never something that anyone can question about Tebow. Listening skills, well that is another story.
In other news, UCONN continued their Big East dominance with yet another huge win last evening over 7th ranked West Virginia. The Huskies are 7 and 8 in the Big East. If the season ended today, they would be in the tournament according to Mr. Bracketology himself Joe Lunardi. Is the Big East dominant? You better believe it.
Pretty much every team in the conference has a top 40 strength of schedule, even if they play the most powder-puff non-conference schedule of all time. Well the Huskies are no different with the 2nd ranked strength of schedule in the country. Even at 17 and 11 overall, their chances are looking pretty good to be dancing in March.
Stay tuned for the next edition of Sportskraze.
