The Florida Gators and college football fans everywhere are going to miss their Jesus Christ football star.
The first half is not yet over in the Allstate Sugar Bowl, Tim Tebow’s last collegiate game and Urban Meyer’s last for a little while, and Tebow has just unloaded on the poor Cincinnati Bearcats. He’s completed 17 of his 18 passing attempts for 293 yards and three touchdowns.
Too bad it’s not the BCS Championship Game, which he won last year and in 2007, but at least Tebow is going out like a boss.
In case you’re wondering, Tebow’s eyeblack tonight references Ephesians 2:8-10:
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
If any mortal man could boast, it would be Tebow. Though I wouldn’t expect him to.
