Tim Tebow's "Promise" Speech The Promise

I just want to say one thing.

To the fans and everybody in Gator Nation, I'm sorry, extremely sorry.

I promise you one thing, a lot of good will come out of this.

You will never see any player in the entire country play as hard as I will play the rest of the season, and you will never see someone push the rest of the team as hard as I will push everybody the rest of the season, and you will never see a team play harder that we will the rest of the season.

God bless.

- Tim Tebow On September 27, 2008, Tim Tebow gave this speech in front of the media after the loss to Ole Miss at The Swamp. He gave this speech to apologize to the Gator fans for a terribly played game. Apology A rhetorical device Tim Tebow used in his speech was apologizing. He was apologizing because him and his team did not show much effort when they lost to Ole Miss. He was showing everyone that he was owning up to something he did wrong. It also gave him the chance to say how he was going to work his tail off the rest of the season and show everyone that he meant it. Glittering Generalities Tim Tebow also used a rhetorical device called glittering generalities. At the end of his speech, he said "God bless." He is a huge Christian and he could have been targeting Christian people in the speech. By him saying that, it probably touched many people and made them a firm believer that he would turn around the season. The whole reason the speech came about was because he was being interviewed after a loss to Ole Miss 31-30 at home. It was an embarrassing loss to the Florida Gators because they were number one in the nation and Ole Miss was not ranked. Tim Tebow did not have a good game and the team played terribly as a whole. He was apologizing on behalf of himself and his team for not playing to the best of their ability. The reason the speech is called "The Promise" is because he made a promise he and his team would work harder and play harder than any team in the country. Tim Tebow and his team kept his promise and won the national championship the year of the speech. Repetition Tim kept repeating himself by saying "you will never see." This really catches the audiences attention because it makes you a firm believer that he will accomplish what he is saying.
