Tim Tebow was in Winter Park, Florida recently, doing what he does best – speaking to people. The pro-Gator crowd was well-heeled and deep-pocketed, and Tebow was a little more candid than usual. For instance, the Jets backup QB took a big, uncharacteristic jab at former Denver teammate Brady Quinn and Notre Dame.
I had a teammate at Denver who played the same position as me and he went to the University of Notre Dame. He would brag about his university, how great it was. Most of us in the locker room were like, ‘C’mon, we all had opportunities. We chose not to go there.’ … But he talked so much about his university that it became easy. I’d say, ‘Your whole team had one guy who ran under a 5.0 40 [yard dash]. Our kicker ran under 5.0.’ ”
Sometimes, the truth hurts, Irish fans. Now some could say Quinn “started it” when he made these comments about Tebow to Mike Silver in GQ, but that’s not the real story.
Gator Zone published the Tebow quotes Monday; by Tuesday morning, the story had been scrubbed from the web. I wondered aloud on twitter what happened to it, and a reader was able to find the Google Cached version. I asked the editor of Gator Zone what happened to the story. Silence.
Does Tim Tebow possess the power to take down stories?
