NCAA: No More John 3:16 Eye Black

The NCAA on Thursday approved three new rules for the upcoming college football season, including one that might be called the Tim Tebow rule. No longer will players be allowed to wear eye black with messages on them. Tebow made the practice a trend while at Florida, showing off a specific verse in the Bible (John 3:16). Reggie Bush did the same thing with the number "619" – a tribute to his home area code. The rules panel also approved rules regulating wedge blocks and taunting/Jared Frank, KHQ/ More here.  (AP file photo, of Tim Tebow during his college career at Florida)
