Even Tebow touched on it, during his post-game press availability, via the Twitter feed of Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Post:
#Tebow says he has "mixed feelings" about wearing the new #Nike uniforms next week in his last home game at The SwampIt's pretty interesting to see a major de facto Nike endorser -- and presumably future cornerstone Nike endorser -- question the uniform choices. (Not that I expect him to pull a Marcus Jordan and refuse to wear the uniforms. But his "mixed feelings" speak volumes.)
But honestly: Would it have been so hard for the school to wear the alternative uniforms THIS week, against a non-opponent in a non-finale context?
Yes, it will -- even slightly -- tarnish next week's game. I'm all for Nike trying out -- and promoting -- new uniform looks and technologies.
Just not in Tebow's career finale at The Swamp.
Speaking of Twitter, I'll leave you for the evening with this, from Dick Vitale:
@DickieV : TIM TEBOW is such a winner. Don't measure Tebow by stats- he is MR HEISMAN!Catch you in the morning.
