Someone please answer me this question: Am I the only person who thinks that the mighty Tim Tebow is totally annoying and obnoxious?  Now, I will be the first to admit that he is one amazing football player, but he is going to give himself an aneurysm if he doesn’t slow down. 

Someone once said to me, it’s only a game!

Ever since this throwback stepped on the field for the first time for the UF Gators, he has bullied and bulldozed his way through the competition.  With two National Titles and a plethora of individual awards coming into his senior season, Tim Tebow has set the standard for the college QB.   

My problem with Tim Tebow is not his playing style nor his religious faith, both deserving kudos, but the fact that he is such a huge glory hound, and he runs around like a overzealous ruffian trying to prove he will be more than a professional fullback in the NFL.  He will settle into the role of NFL backup QB if he can be humbled like all great men have before and know his role.

From his tantrums on a podium to his yelling and screaming in teammates faces, this guy can get you motivated, but he can also be the one to push his teammates away when they let him down. 

It’s a simple study into the human condition.  An overachieving home schooled orphanage bully.  When he really lets his team down, who will be there to yell at the Golden Boy?

You must know he honed his skills stiff arming and hurdling little kids as he dreamed of Dallas Cowboy dreams while taking the punishment of his older brothers.  They broke him in right because he really is one tough Gator and you better believe that.  This kid can throw and run better than any combination ever seen before.  Yet, we get the feeling he loves seeing himself on ESPN although he portrays the contrary.

Over and over again all you see is Tim Tebow and how great of a football player and person he is, but what you don’t see is his Chuck Norris emulation and idolization.  From his press conference antics to his locker room tirades, he sort of puts himself before the team and calls out head coaches from other teams and plays the role of prima donna at pep rallies.  OK, slow down Texas Ranger.

This young man needs to chill out or else he is going to be exposed beyond America’s sweetheart.  He is just a kid under a lot of pressure to succeed, and he has up to this point, but this season will be the most difficult to maintain for the Gators top egomaniac! 

What will he do when adversity comes to and the Gators are finally through?
