Throwback Thursday: Tim Tebow delivers unforgettable ‘promise’ speech

In honor of it being Thursday, and just nine days until Florida football opens its season against New Mexico State, we decided to bring you a little something for #ThrowbackThursday. We chose Tim Tebow’s “promise” speech — the emotional one he gave following Florida’s 31-30 home loss to an unranked Ole Miss team in 2008. Here’s part of the speech that is now on a plaque outside of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium:

“To the fans and everybody in Gator Nation, I?m sorry. I?m extremely sorry. We were hoping for an undefeated season. That was my goal, something Florida has never done here. I promise you one thing, a lot of good will come out of this. You will never see any player in the entire country play as hard as I will play the rest of the season. You will never see someone push the rest of the team as hard as I will push everybody the rest of the season. You will never see a team play harder than we will the rest of the season. God Bless.?
