Don’t quit your day job, Tim.

If this is what passes for cutting edge analysis on the SEC Network…

Tebow, the former Heisman Trophy winner from Florida who spent three years in the NFL, is shifting gears to become an analyst and explained why “SEC Nation” chose the Vanderbilt-Ole Miss game as one of its first stops.

“It’s going to be a big game for Mississippi and for Vanderbilt,” said Tebow, who was in town for the Music City Sports Festival at Music City Center along with Spears, Finebaum and Tessitore.

“You’ve got a Mississippi team that has had great recruiting, and everyone hasn’t necessarily lived up to their potential. But I think Hugh Freeze is a good coach and I think (quarterback) Bo Wallace is going to have a good year. It’s going to be a good game for these teams because you’ve got a Vanderbilt team that’s coming off one of the best seasons it’s had in beating Tennessee, Florida and Georgia in the same year. Are they going to be able to have the same caliber of team with a new coaching staff? It’s going to be really interesting to see.”

… my Saturday mornings are going to stay pretty free.

On the horns of a philosophical dilemma

My feeling is that once somebody leaves college ball for the pros, my blogging interest in them is over, barring the occasional return to the nest, so to speak.

So I have a problem:  with the demise of the GPOOE™’s professional football aspirations and his landing a gig on the SEC Network, does that mean I have to start finding and mocking TebowFluff™ again?

The Greatest Recruiting Story of Our Era

And all it cost Ohio State was a NCAA secondary recruiting violation.

And so it begins.

It’s Tebow Time, bitch.

I wonder if anybody asked the GPOOE™ if he’s got a NFL tryout scheduled yet.

UPDATE:  Got more, if you like former Florida quarterbacks.

The derp, it burns.

Shit’s gettin’ real at the SEC Network.

First Finebaum.  Now, the GPOOE™.  Be still, mine heart.

Tebow is the first college football analyst hired for the SEC Network.

If you weren’t already sick of him, ESPN pretty much guarantees you’re going to be soon enough.

Through a multi-year agreement, Tebow’s primary role will be as an analyst for SEC Nation, the network’s traveling pregame show that will originate from a different SEC campus each week beginning August 28, 2014. In the months leading up to launch and after, he will contribute to a variety of ESPN platforms including SportsCenter, ESPN Radio, and the network’s Heisman Trophy coverage, offering in-depth perspective as a legendary Southeastern Conference player.

On Monday, Jan. 6, Tebow will make his first appearance as an ESPN analyst during pregame coverage of the 2013 VIZIO BCS National Championship. He will contribute to the 9 a.m. ET edition of SportsCenter, College Football Live (3 p.m.) and College GameDay Built by The Home Depot (7 p.m.). He will also be part of studio coverage for the new College Football Playoff (semifinals and championship game), which begins next season.

Hoo, boy.  Overexposed much?

There is, though, one potential fly in the ointment.

“I am so excited that ESPN has given me this incredible opportunity,” said Tebow. “When I was six years old I fell in love with the game of football, and while I continue to pursue my dream of playing quarterback in the NFL, this is an amazing opportunity to be part of the unparalleled passion of college football and the SEC.”

I’m guessing the WWL isn’t losing much sleep over the possibility.

The greatest college football analyst of our time

Just shoot me now.  Please.

ESPN’s SEC Network, which debuts on August 21, 2014, is planning its own version of ‘College Gameday’ and has settled on three names: Rece Davis (an Alabama grad) would be the host, the voice of the South Paul Finebaum would play the role of Lee Corso, and Tebow would be the show’s Kirk Herbstreit. A source says ESPN is currently searching for another former SEC athlete to fill the final spot.

How about Aaron Hernandez?  He’s out of a job right now, too.
