There is a part of me that will always think that the lasting image of Tim Tebow will be when he did the Gator Chomp in the face of Oklahoma's Nic Harris in the 2008 national title game.
But the lasting image from last night is simple: Tebow crying openly as the game's final seconds ticked away, followed by his teary-eyed post-game interview on the field with CBS.
This wasn't uncontrollable Adam Morrison-style bawling. This was college football's greatest competitor letting his ultimate feelings of frustration and disappointment come through.
I think fans should have not expected any less. It remains the symbol of Tebow's competitiveness.
But, based on the video's viral popularity last night and today, it is also the vessel for other fans' schadenfreude that has been building up for four years.
