Tebow at SEC Media Day: About the John 3:16 Eye Black

Tebow just confirmed that the Google searches that resulted from him wearing the John 3:16 eye-black in the national title game were part of what influenced him to come back this season.

His mom acknowledged as much when he made his announcement to return -- and, since then, Urban Meyer has brought it up, too.

It's hard to prioritize how to parse this: Affirmation of the power of Google? Affirmation of the power of Tebow's interest in influencing people?

The John 3:16/Google story is a core pillar of "mythic Tebow" -- first, it was for his power to move the Google needle; now, it is for the notion that that power brought him back to school.
