What exactly was going on with the whole Tebow fiasco this football season is still rather unclear. One thing that is clear, however, is that Tebow cost the New York Jets much more than he was worth (not saying that it was his fault he wasn’t utilized).

The NY Jets paid a total of $3.6 million this year to have Tebow play for them- $2 million payout to the Broncos and $1.6 million to Tebow himself. We did the math here and came up with some interesting figures. Take a look and decide for yourself if Tebow was worth his weight in gold.

· Tebow played 12 games this season: $300,000/game

· He had a total of 141 yards: $25,531.91/yard gained

· Totaled 32 carries: $35,294.12/carry

· Out of 12 games he attempted 8 passes as the QB: $450,000 per pass attempt

· He used his favorite word “Exciting” 44 times during intro press conferences: $81.818.18/”exciting”

· Out of the 6 games the Jets won this season, Tebow “played” in 4 of them: $900,000/win

The List Is In: These Are The Top 10 Party Schools For The 2014-2015 School Year

The Princeton Review has announced the top party schools for 2014-2015. Some rankings are predictable, but others are a bit shocking.

The list, based on 130,000 survey responses from students in schools across the […]

Cheers! According To Science, Drinking Doesn’t Kill Brain Cells After All

A brain is a complex organ. Science comes and goes with new research about how much of our brains we use on a daily basis (it’s not actually 10 percent), if their size correlates with our intelligence (no), and whether or not playing “online brain games” will make you any smarter (they don’t). Now, new […]
