Tim Tebow's Best First Half Ever

We are halfway through Tim Tebow's final college football game -- and he's making it a memorable finish: 20/24 passing for 321 yards, 3 TDs and 0 INTs.

For reference, Tebow's career-high in passing for a single game is 338.

If he plays the first series of the second half, he will break that; if he plays longer into the third quarter, he will shatter it -- "400" has a nice ring to it.

It is a bittersweet ending, to be sure, but if you can't play in the national title game, throttling the so-called next-best team in the country is a fair consolation prize.

Via Twitter, the Sentinel's Tim Stephens asked me where this game ranks among Tim Tebow's all-time best. Statistically and from the "eye test," it's Top 5... but this is a virtual exhibition, and that mitigates it. There are no stakes.

But make no mistake: This is classic Tebow dominance -- and, refreshingly, almost entirely through the air. It's like he's trying to prove a point to NFL scouts. (Going against the porous Cincy D won't help much, but Tebow is making the throws.)

I'm not sure where this ranks among Tim Tebow's all-time ranking of performances, but it's fair to say that this was his best first half ever.

  1. Are you kidding me? I think "the great one" forgot to read the verses that call for humility. What a JERK. I am so happy his final game is exposing him for the Jerk he really is. Good Riddance Tebow, you won't be missed.

  3. Bitter no! Excited yes, that sites like this and the Tebow cult, are soon to be out of business. The best chance Tebow has of making it in the NFL is him making another pathetic crying promise speech where he vows to play hard and blah blah blah.

  4. Sorry, sites like this aren't going anywhere. And the age old internet question: if you have such a legitimate dislike for Tebow and sites like this, then why come? It's very simple to not visit certain sites. Have fun being a Gator Hater!

  5. Help me understand why Jo Jo keeps coming back to the blog if he/she hates Tim so much.
