• If you haven't checked out Gigi Hadid's swimsuit pictorial on SI, you should. Like you really, really should.

 

• Jaguars faithful set the record for practice attendance with 6,214 fans on Saturday. Wonder if they can get that many for the last game of the season?

You didn't actually think we were going to get through the biggest NFL game of the season without Tim Tebow showing up, did you? During Super Bowl Sunday, the former Gators, Broncos, Jets QB will appear in an ad for T-Mobile. To his credit, it's clever and at times smile-inducing. However, it's certainly not "hilarious" or the "funniest of the year" as some media outlets have claimed. See for yourself.

What happens when a Tennessee fan decides to make a video boasting how his Vols are going to beat the Oregon Ducks on Sept. 14? Internet gold. Watch the video and check out our favorite responses from members of the college football subreddit that brought this gem to our attention. 

Best comments from Redditors

* I think Neyland Stadium just found a new pre-kickoff hype video.
* It's like he's shaking his head the whole time as a subliminal message to the watcher that he in fact does not think all of this.
* He's being held hostage and reading a premade message from his abductor while also using non-verbal communication.
* I'm just happy it's not a Bama fan shown doing this for a change.
* Morse code via nostril flares?

First off, let's acknowledge that Michael Jordan is 50 and can still dunk. Amazing. However, it might be slightly more impressive if it weren't for the fact that he's doing against, what appear to be, a 10-year-old child.
