Luke Bryan and Tim Tebow are engaging in a bit of friendly rivalry before the upcoming Florida-Georgia college football game. The country singer trash-talked the athlete on Instagram and put a “curse” on the Gators.
While Bryan didn’t graduate from the University of Georgia, he is still a fan of their football team. Meanwhile, Tebow rose to national prominence as the quarterback for the University of Florida team in college. Bryan appeared in an Instagram video explaining how he acquired Tebow’s Heisman Trophy. Tebow won the award in 2007.
Tim Tebow Donated His Heisman Award Temporarily For an Auction
“It’s Luke here coming to you from my house. And I got a fun week in store for you. Because it’s Georgia-Florida week. Georgia plays Florida Saturday. But the best part about this week, last year at the Red Bird Games– well Tim Tebow showed up at the Red Bird Games,” Bryan said. “And offered his Heisman up for auction to donate to the Brett Boyer Foundation. And my wife bid and won Tim Tebow’s Heisman to be in our home for six months.”
The Red Bird Games is a fundraiser event Bryan and his wife Caroline started. The proceeds went to the Brett Boyer Foundation, which Caroline also founded. Started in honor of Caroline’s niece, the foundation helps children born with Congenital Heart Disease.
The country singer revealed that Tebow was good on his word and delivered the trophy to Bryan’s house. In a bit of rivalry, Bryan kept the trophy covered with a Georgia hoodie.
“Tim somehow delivered it last week, the week before the Georgia-Florida game,” Bryan said. “I feel it was an effort to bring back mojo into my household. So, ladies and gentlemen, there’s Tim’s Heisman. Just to prove to you he made good on his promise. But I got this all week to put a curse on the Florida Gators.”
Just in case, follows thought the rivalry ended there, Bryan promised him and Tebow will be engaged in a bit of friendly competition for the rest of the week.
