VIA Sports Illustrated: Former Florida quarterback Tim Tebow is not a fan of California's Fair Pay to Play Act. Tebow voiced concerns on Friday that the new law will change college football's landscape.

During an appearance on ESPN's First Take, Tebow was asked for his stance on the bill, which was approved by California's State Senate on Wednesday and would allow college athletes to be paid for their use of name, likeness and image.

Tebow responded passionately, sharing why he thinks the bill will take away the focus from the teams and toward money in college football.

"If I could support my team, support my college, support my university, that's what it's all about," he said. "But now we're changing it from 'us'...from being an alumni where I care, which makes college sports special, to then okay it's not about 'us,' it's not about 'we.' It's just about 'me.' "

He added: "It changes what's special about college football. We turn it into the NFL, where who has the most money, that's where you go."
