Real college football players' names are not supposed to appear in video games if they're still in school at the time they are published. But Tim Tebow's name slipped into NCAA Football 10, which came out during the Heisman Trophy winner's senior year at Florida.
On Friday, Mike Young, the creative director for Madden NFL 13 revealed that the game would feature the notorious "Tebowing" posture, whose namesake drops to one knee in a solemn and evidently religious celebration. Operation Sports today published the first screenshot of what that would look like. In fact, they said…
This is sure to rankle a ton of axe-grinders, which makes it remarkable the development team for Madden NFL 13 chose to poke this snake. But there will be a "Tebowing" celebration animation in the game this year, according to Mike Young, the game's creative director.
As a hopeless Jets fan and Tebow-fearing human, I was not too pleased at this afternoon's news that the Denver Broncos have traded divine quarterback Timothy Richard Tebow to the New York Jets. Current starter Mark Sanchez has enough of a media circus on his hands already.
His season may be over, but Tebow Time has not run out. And if last night's news about the Madden NFL 13 cover is any indication, get ready to see a lot more of the Denver quarterback during the off-season.
An Alabama GameStop allegedly made a cover of a crying Tim Tebow - who (in)famously wept as Alabama beat Florida for last year's SEC championship - and inserted it into the cases of NCAA Football 11 games on display.
It is hardly a surprise that the cover of NCAA Football 11, out July 13, does not feature Tim Tebow with the Scriptures written on his eyeblack tape. That's not to say EA Sports has never allowed similar things before.
Tim Tebow, first-round draft selection of the Denver Broncos, is already in uniform thanks to EA Sports and Madden NFL 11.
The agent for former Florida quarterback Tim Tebow says he was in Orlando last week to do "promotional work" for EA Sports, and while nothing's confirmed, it's almost unimaginable he won't be on the cover of NCAA Football 11.
