Tim Tebow Gave the Wichita State Basketball Team an Unexpected Pep Talk Yesterday (Video)

On Saturday night, the Wichita State Shockers shocked the world by beating No. 1 seed Gonzaga in the 2013 NCAA Tournament. But, on Sunday, they got a shock of their own when they returned to Wichita, Kan. and received a surprise pep talk from none other than Tim Tebow, who was at the same airport as the team during a layover.

"Some of you might go play in the NBA or you might have great lives," he told the team aboard their bus. "But this is the time you will remember. All of you all together, ballin' out there together, training together, putting in the heart and sweat, everything, caring about each other. You'll never forget it, guys, this is what it's made of and these are the special times in your life, regardless of what you do in the future. So I just want to say congrats. You're an inspiration to so many people, so always remember that and how you carry yourself and your characters, how you represent your school, your family, your team, your brothers on the team, but also, man, just go out there and ball out, leave nothing on the court. I know you don't need to hear that from me, but I just wish y'all luck and we're praying for you. God bless, and y'all go do it, all right, guys?"

Alright! GO TEAM GO!!!!!!! But, seriously, we can't help but wonder what Tebow's alma mater Florida thinks about Timmy Touchdown giving another team in the tourney a pep talk. Where's the loyalty, Tim?!
