It's been almost a year since Tebowmania came to an unceremonious end when Tim Tebow was released by the New England Patriots.

The 26-year-old quarterback is still working out, hoping for another chance in the NFL. 

His coach at Florida, Urban Meyer wonders why Tebow hasn't found a new home.

"I still don't get that part of it," Meyer said at Big Ten Media Day. "He's the second-most efficient passer ever to play college football."

He may have been an efficient passer at the collegiate level, but it didn't translate to the NFL. Tebow has a career completion percentage of 47.9.

Could he have been more efficient if he was placed into the right system?

"He had really good personnel around him (at Florida) and we utilized his skill very well," said Meyer. "I think in a traditional setting, it is difficult, but there's a lot of non-traditional offenses now in the NFL." 

Meyer is confident that things will work out for Tebow in the end. 

"He'll be successful in whatever he does, but he's such a good player, I just wish it would work out for him."
