Theoretically of course, but an article on GC a couple months back about Tim's recruitment and his whole class got me thinking. Have you ever wondered how much influence one decision by a high school kid can make on not just one university but a couple as well as many lives? I didn't follow recruiting as closely back then as I do now so I didn't realize how close Tim was to committing to bama till I read that article. Just thinking how everything would have panned out if Tim committed to them has to many vast possibilities. Does mike shula get fired if he in fact did land tebow. Or does he keep his job with his star QB. If he went there does bama's " dynasty" start long before 2009? Or do they never establish the dominance they have shown the past 5 years or so. If shula is never fired where does saban end up and does that school become the perennial title contender he made bama into? A scarier thought is what would have happened to us? Do we ever win the 2 titles? Sure we already had our coach in meyer, but let's face it, Meyer was a mediocre 17-8 in the 2 seasons without tebow. Tebow wasn't a HUGE contributer during our first title run although with out a few of his jump pass and rushing touchdowns it's feasible that we lose maybe one additional game but his impact that year really had nothing to do with his performance. His commitment started a string of other high profile commits like Percy harvin who absolutely contributed to that title run. If Tebow ends up at bama do we get that momentum swing and other elite players or do they end up going elsewhere? . It's absolutely mind boggling to contemplate, but do we win any titles with out tebow? Does tebow ever win a heisman as a sophmore and become a college football legend? Or does he flounder under mike shula ' s system? We had another very talented option QB in 07 in cam Newton but if not for our title in 06 does he commit to us? And if so does he win a title with us and a heisman therefor affecting auburn's recent success and history. Does meyer ever leave florida for OSU as a HOF coach if He doesn't win those titles? So you see Tebow's decision to be a gator worked out GREAT for us and as well as bama who got saban when shula got fired after the season he didn't get tebow as well as auburn who got their heisman and title winning QB in newton ultimately because he didn't want to wait behind tim. OSU got a hot name coach in meyer since Meyers greatest success as a coach is hinged on tebow, muschamp may have been texas' s coach right now and so on. The power and ability to influence so many lives, careers and football programs Tim Tebow had with that one decision is insane to think about but one i have been thinking theoretically about for a few days. Good thing he went with the good guys. I'm interested in how y'all think everything would have unfolded if Tim made the opposite choice and chose bama? Fire away.
