Tim Tebow Found Guilty

It started off in an innocent way. Yet things have a way of picking up speed and soon enough the matter got serious. Coach Urban Meyer was just sitting there enjoying a hearty lunch with several others. Among the people accompanying him, there was Tim Tebow

The coach got a phone call from Clifton Garret. The accomplished coach told Garret that he was having lunch with his near and dear ones. Just by chance he mentioned that Tim Tebow was among the gathering. Garret wanted to say best of luck to Tebow for the upcoming game. 

Coach Meyer handed the phone to Tebow who spoke with Garret for approximately eight seconds. Now, the coach has reiterated time and again that there was no conversation regarding recruitment. How is it that you can possibly recruit a man for Ohio State in a mere eight seconds? 

But the law is the law and rules are rules. This seemingly benign phone call broke a very fundamental rule of the NCAA. And that was “No recruitments allowed!” The recruiting violation now has Tim Tebow at the very heart of the maelstrom. 

Coach Meyer keeps repeating the fact that it was not meant to be a violation of the code in the first place. It was just a harmless eight second call. And he was just trying to show some gentlemanly behavior. 

He realized that it was a mistake since he later on felt that he shouldn’t have allowed Tebow to speak to Garret. But what is done is done. It cannot be undone now, can it? And so the story goes. 

The question is that even if Tebow violated a stringent rule, how much could he have communicated to Garret in the span of eight seconds? It must have been a sentence or two at the maximum.  So how does that prove in any way that Tim is guilty of a crime? For all purposes, it seems there are no signs of hanky-panky here!

Why NFL Training Camp Reps Are About Quality Not Quantity

In an ideal world, an NFL team would find a perfect harmony between quality reps in training camp and the perfect quantity.
