Tim Tebow has had many chances to go after his detractors. Each time he has chosen the high road.
But not this time, when it comes to Notre Dame.
Without mentioning Brady Quinn by name, Tebow referenced his former teammate, whom he said used to endlessly brag about his ex-school, Notre Dame.
“So many guys come up to me and say, ‘What’s it like to be at the University of Florida? What’s it like to be a Gator?’ The first thing I think of is, ‘Wouldn’t you like to know?’” Tebow told GatorZone.com.
“… 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.’”
As CBSSports.com pointed out, Quinn took somewhat of a shot at Tebow not long ago, questioning if the new New York Jets quarterback is as humble as everyone makes him out to be.
