We reported last night that the folks in Gainesville expect a crowd of more than 10,000 for Wednesday’s Pro Day workout, featuring quarterback Tim Tebow.
It’s an unconventional approach, but the Gainesville Sun reports that the powers-that-be have welcomed the general public to attend Tebow’s workout at the Gators’ home stadium.
So why are they doing it? One explanation would be to demonstrate his drawing power, which could make a team like the Jaguars more inclined to be patient with Tebow’s catapult-launch throwing motion, if it means that eventually the tarps can be used for something other than covering up seats that never will be sold.
Then there’s the reality that the presence of friendly faces and supportive voices could help Tebow calm down and, you know, not fumble seven snaps.
Cue the Gators fans who believe that any acknowledgment of reality equals “hating.”
