Tebow: Meyer can succeed in the NFL, praises Alabama QB Jones
“He’s not just someone that brings a system,” Tebow said. He’s not a system guy. And so he’s really good evaluator,” Tebow said. But he went against the grain went to a place that’s going to be harder, he’s going to have to compete, he’s going to have to grow, he’s going to have to adapt. I’m planning on starting and we start on time, so I’m excited,” Tebow said.
Alabama WR DeVonta Smith wins Heisman Trophy

Jones’ teammate, receiver DeVonta Smith, earned the annual award, given to college football’s top player. Tebow was a three-time Heisman finalist. Those passing totals rank second in college football, trailing only Florida’s Kyle Trask (4,283 yards, 43 TDs), a fellow Heisman finalist. Another Alabama alum, running back Derrick Henry, is the only other area player to earn a Heisman finalist spot.
'Tebowing' becomes latest Internet trend
"Tebowing" is now the biggest Internet trend. As described on the Tumblr blog, Tebowing "is to get down on a knee and start praying, even if everyone else around you is doing something completely different." Photos on the site show people Tebowing in bookstores, in airports, in the operating room, in the U.S. Capitol and while golfing. There are even photos of toddlers Tebowing and one mimicking the Beatle's "Abbey Road" album cover. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Jared Kleinstein, the founder of the blog, said he first convinced his friends to pose like Tebow after watching the former Gators QB lead a fourth-quarter comeback against the Miami Dolphins.
