In my latest Tebow-related column for Yahoo's Dr. Saturday, I make the case that Saturday was the low point of Tebow's career.
But it wasn't for anything that happened on the field -- but off of it, when he skipped out on talking about the game with the media.
Consider that "The Promise" was the single most memorable highlight of Tim Tebow's career -- and it was made under conditions far more stressful than the ones on Saturday night. What happened in Starkville was the opposite of The Promise.
If nothing else, Tebow is the greatest leader in the history of college football -- as that great leader, he owed it to his team, his fans and his media to talk about the game, even if he wasn't happy with his performance in it.
If it was good enough for a loss to Ole Miss, it should be good enough for a win over Mississippi State.

UPDATE: Here's what Tebow said about missing the media session, from his media session today (the OS's Jeremy Fowler sounds dubious):
"There was a lot of other things I wanted to do. Not that this isn’t important. I’ve always been very courteous to do that. And I’m sorry I didn’t see y'all. But I wanted to see coach (Dan) Mullen. I wanted to go see my family, I had a lot of friends at the game…We were in meetings for a little bit after the game there talking. It’s not like we got out quickly either."
