    Sports Illustrated has a long, long piece on Tebow, his past and his current status within the NFL. The format's a little odd (everyone's experimenting with new ways of presenting content), but it's a good read.

    Those photos under the copy make it nearly impossible to read on a mobile phone.

    Cowherd said today that Tebow would more than likely be running his show next year.

    Thanks for the link. I am eager to read this piece given that its author, Thomas Lake, penned what is probably my favorite sports article of all-time. It is both beautiful and heart-wrenching like all great prose should be.

    Just finished...LONG is right, but a fascinating read. Part III sheds some light on some Urban Meyer shenanigans that proved particularly interesting for me. The Tony Joiner-Tebow relationship seems...complicated. The idea that Meyer forced Tebow on Joiner as a roommate to "watch" him, and then yanked Tebow out of there when it no longer served him, irrespective of what had become a friendship...yikes. That doesn't sit well with me.
    This is the article that never ends. I thought it was over 4 times.

    I know Gator Nation has moved on to other things- but please please please read this article.

    Some amazing insights to the Meyer regime and also the kind of pressure that Tebow was under while he was here.
    I'm not sure any other player in the country could have held up with the burden that Meyer put on him. It is no wonder that we fell apart after Tebow left.

    I know it's long. Just read in pieces. It's 7 parts so you can take them one at a time.

    I enjoy reading so the length is no problem and this guy is a very good writer. I also like the format a lot but I'm not reading on a cell phone which I imagine could be a problem. SI is going to have to deal with that. I just came from a Drs appointment and was reading magazines that are designed very poorly for readability. Sans serif type in the body copy, extra thin and grey, I had to fight and struggle through every line while the writing wasn't all that good either. This was a pleasure to read.

    Urban Meyer calling the players he inherited a bag of sh**? It's a wonder he got anything out of them with that attitude. One more reason to say good riddance. He's better off being somewhere the air temperature can drop below his own in November, and so are we.
