The Times Got It Right--Tebow Shouldn't Be Permitted To Play

The New York Times story, Florida's Decision on Tebow Should Be Obvious is right on point. 

Here is what the Times has to say about even thinking about letting Tim Tebow play tonight after sustaining a concussion that left him unconscious:

The devastating effects of concussions are no longer a secret.  In the last five years, mountains of evidence have been compiled about the long-term impact, especially on football players.  There have been proof and loud warnings: don't play around with concussions.

Meyer has said he will leave the decision up to the team's medical staff.  But why wait for the physicians? Meyer should announce before Saturday's game that regardless of what the doctors say, Tebow will not play.

I say, When in doubt, keep them out!
