        The more I read about this new league and especially after reading of Spurrier's enthusiasm for it, the more I think that the AAF may be quite interesting to watch. The players will be hungry and eager to prove themselves and not at all like the millionaire prima donnas in the NFL who think they have arrived. Spurrier's influence is already having an effect -- at least it has on me.

          I really think you'll see him dial it up. It's what he's there for, and at this stage in his life, why the eff not?

                  During a radio interview this morning with Bianchi, Spurrier put out the welcome mat for Tim Tebow.

                  "Obviously, if his baseball career is going well, he may decide to stick with it, which I certainly would understand. But if it doesn't go too well and he has the urge to play football, we would certainly welcome him in Orlando."

                      Tim Tebow is playing minor league baseball right now. But if he wants to play minor league football a year from now, he has an offer on the table.


                      Steve Spurrier, who will coach the Orlando franchise in the upstart Alliance of American Football, says he’d like to have Tebow, his fellow Florida Heisman Trophy winner, on his team.

                      That would be wonderful,” Spurrier told Mike Bianchi. “I think Tim knows about our league. He knows he’s welcome to come down [to Orlando] and play. Obviously, if his baseball career is going well, he may decide to stick with it, which I would certainly understand. But if it doesn’t go to well and he has the urge to play football, we would certainly welcome him in Orlando.”

                      Tebow has indicated that he’s serious about trying to make it work in baseball, and although he’s a long way from the major leagues, he has played better than most people were expecting and is currently at the Double-A level. It seems unlikely that he’d be willing to go back to play in the equivalent of Double-A football, but if Spurrier could persuade him it would be a huge coup for an upstart league trying to get attention.
