Or us, for that matter.-- timteblog.comTHE PREMISE: Sporting News writer Dan Shanoff recently launched a Web site devoted solely to Tebow based on the reasoning that Tebow's story this season is similar in interest to that of Michael Phelps as he headed into the Olympics last summer .

Petersburg Times in an e-mail.
"Not only is he trying to lead his team to a back-to-back national championship (for which they are favored to win), but he is the leading contender for the Heisman.
The combination of team accomplishment and individual accolades -- plus the general mythology that has been created around him -- will put him squarely in the debate over whether he is the best college football player of all time.
For me, that affirmatively qualifies the Tebow story as worthy of my focused journalistic coverage."-- tebowzone.comTHE PREMISE: This site basically compiles all types of Tebow information and puts it in one place, so you don't have to look all over for it.
