On Monday evening, former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow made his debut as a college football analyst for ESPN's College GameDay for the 2014 BCS National Championship Game.
Tebow may be unfortunate not to secure himself a career in the NFL and the days when he played football may have already been long gone, but it doesn't mean that his level of intelligence in the game has diminished.
Tebow received positive feedback and praises with his first appearance on television. The comments he made proved to be accurate in the game. He even almost prophesied the final scores of the said championship game.
During the show, Tebow shared his forecast. "Auburn might be a team of destiny, but tonight, Florida State is deeper from top to bottom," said Tebow. "With Jameis Winston and Telvin Smith's leadership in the fourth quarter, I think they win 35-31," Tebow added.
Indeed, the Florida State Seminoles won, 34-31.

The former Heisman trophy winner was officially hired by ESPN on Dec 30. He is lined up to appear primarily on ESPN's cable college sports network, Southeastern Conference (SEC) Network. He will appear as a co-host of SEC Nation, the network's traveling pre-game show.
The 26-year-old ex-quarterback is the first college football analyst hired for the SEC Network.
"Tim is a SEC icon with national fan base and broad appeal," said ESPN Senior Vice President for Programming and College Networks Justin Connolly. "He will be a significant contributor to the compelling content we will deliver with the SEC Network," Connolly added. "Tim brings a wealth of knowledge about the game, the conference and the passion among SEC fans," he concluded.
Tebow will also reportedly be tasked to perform other hosting stints to a range of ESPN's platforms, including ESPN Radio, Sports Center as well as the Heisman Trophy coverage.
Tebow has not dropped his dream of playing for the NFL again. Part of his contract with ESPN permits him to continue his football career if he desires to.
