Tebow Quote of the Day: Chris Low

"I sure wouldn't want to be the doctor telling Tebow he couldn't play."

-- ESPN.com SEC blogger Chris Low, on the latest status update on Tebow, including the detail that Urban said that Tebow has earned the right to start against LSU, even if he doesn't practice. (Of course, if Tebow can't practice, isn't that an indication he probably shouldn't play?)

Ironically, I'm sure there are plenty of doctors -- and others -- who would be happy to be the person telling Tebow he couldn't play. They might be saving his career -- perhaps his quality of life.

Maybe I'm parsing, but wouldn't a doctor telling Tebow he COULDN'T play presumably be making that directive from a point of medical (near-)certainty?

In honor of today's theme, perhaps Low's phrase is more accurate as: "I sure wouldn't want to be the doctor telling Tebow he SHOULDN'T play."
