TIM TEBOW’S SENIOR CLASS SCHEDULE MAKES VINNY TESTAVERDE LOOK LIKE A RHODES SCHOLAR

THE WORLD’S MOST FAMOUS VIRGIN WILL HAVE THE WORLD’S EASIEST COLLEGE SCHEDULE THIS SEMESTER

Here’s the latest example of why the NCAA is a joke.

Superstar Florida quarterback Tim Tebow is a class act. Not only is he a devout man of faith but he is also honest. That’s why he corrected an interviewer recently when he referred to Tebow as a “student athlete.”

Earlier this week, Tebow volunteered to the New York Times that he is taking only one actual class this semester. The Times reporter then jokingly compared Tebow’s class schedule to USC quarterback Matt Leinart’s infamously easy course load in the fall semester of 2005 (that year Leinart’s only class was “Ballroom Dancing.”) Tebow’s response? “Easier,” he said.

Tebow explained that his class was for one credit. That’s right, the nation’s top “student athlete” is scheduled to be in class one hour per week. Actually, it’s more like zero. Tebow’s “Senior Seminar” class is scheduled for Tuesday afternoons during Gator football practice. Therefore, Tebow is going to “work something out” with the professor so that he doesn’t have to miss practice. Naturally, the blogs are going nuts over this.

As a side note, Tebow threw a trio of former star college quarterbacks under the bus when he mentioned that Matt Ryan, Colt Brennan and Dennis Dixon all had similar arrangements during their senior seasons of college. Dixon took one “Billiards” class his final season at Oregon. Brennan had only three classes including CPR his final semester at Hawaii. Here’s a picture of Matt Ryan hanging out at some phantom class while he was at B.C. :

In fairness, Ryan, Brennan and Dixon all received college degrees. Still, this is very bad for the NCAA’s myth of the “student athlete.”

None of this means that Tebow is a dumb jock. That one class actually allows him to graduate early from the University of Florida. Tebow also has a 3.7 GPA. He worked hard his first three years in college to put himself in this position. Still, it’s ridiculous that the guy who could very well win the Heisman Trophy and who is being hailed as “the greatest college football player of all-time” could go through an entire season and not have to set foot in a single classroom all semester. That is an outrage.

What kind if message does this send other NCAA “student athletes?” Ones who aren’t as diligent in the classroom as Tebow. You can sign up for one damn phantom class and still maintain your college eligibility. How is that even possible?
