It’s been a rough week for Tebowing.
The originator of the move, Tim Tebow, went 6-for-22 for 60 yards on Sunday in a Denver loss, and when Stanford kicker Jordan Williamson took a knee in reflection before the biggest moment of his young football career, the results were even worse.
Of course, it’s a bit strange that Tebow is suddenly credited with inventing the act of taking a knee and praying in solitude, but Tebowing has been a nationwide phenomenon for more than two months. So as the cameras caught the redshirt freshman, it just felt like Tebow Time.
Then, of course, Williamson missed an easy 35-yarder from the middle of the field that should have won Stanford the Fiesta Bowl, and he missed it bad. It hooked so sharply that the ball didn’t even hit the net. It was wide left, with a bullet.
The cameras didn’t catch Williamson Tebowing before his attempt in overtime, but the results were the same. Shanked. Wide left. Missed the net. Stanford would lose minutes later when Oklahoma State’s kicker didn’t miss his field goal.
It just goes to show that it takes more than a knee and a prayer to win football games.

Maybe instead of Tebowing, Williamson should have been working on his Vinatieri.

“I’m not sure if NBC got together with the refs to turn this into an overtime game. I thought the game was reffed horrible. … I just thought tonight, in that third period, it was disgusting.”
