If all he can do is read a playbook and a QBs eyes then im happy.

Found the article I was talking about and a practice test with 15 Wonderlic questions:

The Article:

The Test:
http://espn.go.com/page2/s/closer/020228test.html

I took the test and got 13 of 15 in the time allotted (Missed the math questions on number of pages and the return on investment).

A perfect score on the test is a 51, only one player ever got it. Also, according to the article, Taylor's score of ten makes him "literate". With apologies to Skins&Canes, it's good to know Taylor got some quality education down there at Miami ("You must be able to read AND write your own name to enter this school"). Figure if Taylor got a ten, that's like getting 3 questions right on the practice test (getting 20% of the answers correct). Anyone here want to admit to scoring less than a 5?

My roomate always tells me stories about how Parcells used to try and Coach LT. Then one day he didnt listen and went and sacked the QB. So from then on Coach just said, 'LT get the QB', and he just said 'OK Coach'

As a side note, as im sure most of you dont know, Miami is a small private school in Coral Gables(one of the most expensive cities in the US). Most peopel think its a public school like FSU with thousands and thousands of people. When I entered we had around 5000 undergrads. The academic side is great, but im not going to lie and say that the football players dont receive 'special' treatment. They kinda do their own thing seperate from the school.. Not all of them, Taylor probably yes. Ive had classes and done projects with a bunch of them that were very bright. Those guys usually arent the first round draft choice though, oh well.

Fair enough, but a 10??? Special treatment is one thing, special ed is another. How did this guy find his way to class?? Oh wait, that would be the "special treatment" thing again....

Just ribbing you S&C. I went to Univ. Maryland back when Bobby Ross was coach and got "special treatment" for the football players (let's not even talk about Lefty Driesell and the B-Ball players). I had some classes with them, dumb as posts - which is kinda insulting to posts actually. Yet, amazingly they aced every exam. lol

I went to a junior college and I could always tell if a class was going to be easy by looking to see if there were many basketball players in the room.

Im sure there was a perfectly good excuse for that. Since its a timed test, im sure he showed up late because he was picking up his new Cadillac that the school bought him. So he just didnt get as much time as everyone else.

this is my post on a different thred, im sure youll find it interesting. It relates to this so ill paste it.

As a side note, I at the big Caddilac dealship last week with my friend who works there. We were parking a car when I saw Bryant Mckinney there getting his new Escalade EXT. He put about 50g's in upgrades on it, including Laborgini Doors, yes on an SUV.

Anyhow the point is the guy brining his car to him cut a corner to close and indented the entire half of the truck. Completly messed it up. I walked downstairs and sat next to McKinney and just smiled as his salesmen was saying how hes going to love the new paint job and doors (which I just saw get ruined). I couldnt stay any longer but man, that is not a dude that id want to piss off.

LOLOL - See, I was born all wrong. Intelligent, witty, stunningly handsome but I run the 40 in about 18.3. Smart as a box of rocks and able to hit like a mack truck would've left me rich, happy and to dumb to know any better (oh sorry, it would've left me "literate" and rich).

Evidently, Miami starts getting serious about academics in the senior year. That's when they put down the comic books and pick up the "great books" which is why everybody has to bail after 3 years. Give me a break, Miami is a public private, meaning that you pay to get the same education you could get at FSU. Not that either school is a poor educational experience but let's not pretend these guys are studying thermodynamics like their counterparts at Stanford or MIT.

What the football players do has nothing to do with the school or the rest of the student body. Any school has football players that dont do anything and only care about football. Yes, some of the football players, like at anyschool, get their degree in sports and leisure or somethign like that. But plenty of the UM football players have also been in my advacned Econ class, and ironically enough ive taken thermodynamics with some of them as well. If you want to talk about a player being stupid, then fine I dont care. But please dont just sterotype and bash my school
