The SEC Network isn’t all that interested in allowing you to view the Tim Tebow hit, apparently. The Palm Beach Post’s Ben Volin explains the situation:
The highlight package, which lasts 2:23, completely skips over Taylor Wyndham’s hit on Tebow late in the third quarter. The play happened with 4:11 left in the third quarter, and the highlight tape jumps from 12 minutes to 54 seconds in the third quarter with no mention whatsoever of Wyndham’s devastating hit and Tebow’s concussion.
At the very end of the tape, Lauren the announcer finally addresses the Tebow injury. Here is the full text:
"Tebow, after being sacked in the third quarter, was tended to briefly on the field and walked off under his own power, but he did not return to the game."
Talk about the understatement of the year.
Weird, right? And that’s not even the only place the SEC has attempted to erase the memory of the Tebow concussion. All of the SEC’s various online entities and video distribution systems and widgets — all of them are missing Tebow’s play.
It’s almost as if the SEC wants you to forget the whole thing happened. Which only barely makes sense itself. Can someone explain this to us? We feel very confused.
