Tim Tebow was asked the following question at SEC Media Days:
Reporter: “Are you saving yourself for marriage?”
Tebow: (laughing) “Yes, I am.”
Another reporter: “Tim, being a senior, uh, what would you say…
Tebow: (still laughing) “I think y’all are stunned right now. Y’all can’t even ask a question. Look at this, the first time ever. Wow, I was ready for the question. I don’t think y’all were though.”
My opinion is somewhere in between. In front of 300 people, the question could be deemed tacky. However, his faith is important to him, he’s happy to share his beliefs so more of a one-on-one type situation would have been more appropriate. But I don’t think Tebow minded, so maybe everyone else should chill. If you want to read the 8 lines the smart-alecky writer wrote about it, go here. The audio is at the bottom as well.
Here’s much of the transcript from his press conference. It’s at the very bottom, right after Coach Meyer. I started to just cut and paste the whole thing, but it would have been a little unwieldy.
Feel free to chime in and leave a comment on your view.
