Tebow Swamp Finale: Shortened Ovation?

I had this idea that Tim Tebow would get a crazy 10-minute standing ovation from the fans in The Swamp on Saturday. At LEAST 10 minutes.

Apparently, I am wrong. Per the Sentinel's Jeremy Fowler, it will be the standard Senior Day ceremony: Players run out of the tunnel, get a flower, greet their parents and Urban Meyer.

The ceremony is normally around 8 minutes. This year, it has been extended... to 10 minutes. Presumably, the senior class will take around 8, then Tebow will be introduced last and get 2.

And that will be it. I presume that Tebow himself wants to get treated no differently than anyone else in this spectacular senior class -- for a consummate team-first leader like Tebow, that seems like the most appropriate send-off of all.

  1. I think we'll see an extended, emotional ovation during Tebow's traditional post-game high-five victory lap around the Swamp. Singing the Alma Mater and Orange and Blue followed by Tebow's victory lap is going to be an emotional moment for sure.
