Tebow was introduced by The Roots playing “On Bended Knee” by Boyz II Men and concluded his segment by shooting a signed jersey into the crowd with at T-shirt gun.

2 » Speaking of television clips of Tebow, ESPN2‘s First Take has continued to make him a topic of conversation long after Denver’s season ended. This week the show featured singer/songwriter John Legend remixing one of his own tunes to create a song called “Extra-Ordinary Tebow.”

3 » Though National Signing Day is in the books (more on that later), the Florida Gators are still holding out hopes that one more recruit, five-star wide receiver Stefon Diggs (Olney, MD), will commit to the team when he announces his decision on Friday, Feb. 10. In order to get Florida’s collective mouth watering (and those of the other teams still recruiting him, Diggs released the following highlight video Wednesday night.

    Normally FSN South/SportSouth shows all these sorts of shows in their coverage area on delay. For instance the Billy Donovan or Will Muschamp shows air on Tuesdays. They show the In My Own Words series on Florida figures as well. But nothing on this…. I’ve checked the listings multiple times for weeks and they aren’t airing any of this series. It’s absurd. Maybe the Horford one will finally make the cut since he plays here.

  2. John S says:

    Diggs is special, hopefully he’ll get to Gainesville. He would be an immediate starter. I’d like to hire a private eye to watch Locksley on his Maryland visit though.

    Diggs looks really good in that vid. Reminds me a bit of Debose and Harvin’s HS tape. They were also home-run
    threats whenever they touched the ball at that level. Sure hope he lands at Florida.

    thanks for the link to the Tebow thing Adam, that was pretty good, enjoyed it. Tim is a rockstar, love how he can laugh at himself, don’t understand the people who passionately HATE the kid, makes no sense.
