Need an explanation why I’m in Gainesville today?
I don’t know if there’s ever been a more ballyhooed workout than this one. Tim Tebow will unveil his new throwing motion before dozens of scouts, a small army of media members and thousands of fans this morning at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.
What I know is that, as of earlier this week, more than 155 credentials had been issued. More than 10,000 fans are expected. On Wednesday. At 10 a.m.
Somewhere along the line I’m going to need someone to explain to me — just one more time — how exactly Tebow went about inventing winning. As you guys know, I’m more than a little skeptical about the Gator’s chances as a pro quarterback. But I will say that I can’t remember a more polarizing prospect, or one with more uncertainty surrounding his stock than this former Heisman Trophy winner.
This also, for obvious reasons, will be a real hotspot for scouts and NFL decision-makers, so we’ll see if we can get you some Patriot-related stuff along the way as well.
