'Tebow Rule' Could Ban Eye Black Messages

Ad Feedback

Some are calling it the "Tim Tebow Rule" for college football. An NCAA committee is suggesting that starting next season, players who use "eye black" must wear a solid shade of black with no words, logos, numbers or other symbols.

Tebow put Bible verses on his eye black when he played for the Florida Gators. He wore "John 3:16" in the 2009 BCS Championship game. Two days later, 94 million people had Googled the verse.

Other players write all sorts of things on their eye black, from their area code to team logos.     

The NFL already bans all eye black messages.
