    Proof that the Wonderlic is not an accurate measure of intelligence:

    Channing Crowder--30

    You can be smart and play football.....What do you know personally about Mr. Crowder that we don't? There is a reason why NFL personnel departments like to see players take these tests.

    I'm not sure how accurate that thing is. There was a news report earlier that said the QB from Harvard aced it with a 50. On this list he is shown as having a 38 and he was only fourth best. Either this list is wrong or the earlier news article was.

    I assumed that any college football fan knew about the tumultuous career of Channing Crowder. Thanks for the tip on smart guys playing football too...I never realized that one :wink2:

    <!-- nb tables --><!-- begin text11 div --><!-- begin leftcol --> <!-- template inline --> GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Florida linebacker Channing Crowder was arrested for fighting with police outside a nightclub.

    Crowder, the Southeastern Conference's freshman defensive player of the year, was arrested early Sunday along with junior safety Jarvis Herring, police said Monday.

    According to the police report, Crowder got into an argument outside the club. After police told him to leave, Crowder stopped in the middle of the street, held up traffic and yelled at another man.

    When police finally caught up to Crowder, he refused to put his hands behind his back when they tried to handcuff him. Herring interfered with officers, the report said. Crowder was charged with disorderly conduct, and Herring was charged with resisting or obstructing without violence.

    Crowder spent the night in jail. His mother, Pauline Pope, told Florida Today on Sunday night she spoke to her son after his release and that he was upset.

    "I don't feel real comfortable saying a whole lot because I don't know all of the details yet," Pope told the newspaper. "Channing is a very trusting person and he needs to avoid getting himself in these kinds of situations."

    Last year, Crowder was suspended for the season opener after pleading no contest to misdemeanor battery for allegedly beating a man unconscious.

    Florida coach Ron Zook said no immediate team punishment will be issued to either Crowder or Herring.

    From early indications she'd gotten, Pope told Florida Today that there's a chance the complaint against her son could be dropped.

    Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

    My fault. I better learn something about this American football before I decide to post again :tic:

    grad, if you'll recall, there was a young man out of South Boston named Will Hunting who was an absolute genius, but had many run-ins with the law, including beating men in fights and stealing cars.

    You mean this Will Hunting?

    WILL: Say I'm working at N.S.A. Somebody puts a code on my desk, something nobody else can break. So I take a shot at it and maybe I break it. And I'm real happy with myself, 'cause I did my job well. But maybe that code was the location of some rebel army in North Africa or the Middle East. Once they have that location, they bomb the village where the rebels were hiding and fifteen hundred people I never had a problem with get killed. Now the politicians are sayin' "send in the Marines to secure the area" 'cause they don't give a shit. It won't be their kid over there, gettin' shot. Just like it wasn't them when their number got called, 'cause they were pullin' a tour in the National Guard. It'll be some guy from Southie takin' shrapnel in the ass. And he comes home to find that the plant he used to work at got exported to the country he just got back from. And the guy who put the shrapnel in his ass got his old job, 'cause he'll work for fifteen cents a day and no bathroom breaks. Meanwhile my buddy from Southie realizes the only reason he was over there was so we could install a government that would sell us oil at a good price. And of course the oil companies used the skirmish to scare up oil prices so they could turn a quick buck. A cute, little ancillary benefit for them but it ain't helping my buddy at two-fifty a gallon. And naturally they're takin' their sweet time bringin' the oil back and maybe even took the liberty of hiring an alcoholic skipper who likes to drink seven and sevens and play slalom with the icebergs and it ain't too long 'til he hits one, spills the oil, and kills all the sea-life in the North Atlantic. So my buddy's out of work and he can't afford to drive so he's got to walk to the job interviews which sucks 'cause the shrapnel in his ass is givin' him chronic hemorrhoids. And meanwhile he's starvin' 'cause every time he tries to get a bite to eat the only blue-plate special they're servin' is North Atlantic scrod with Quaker State. So what'd I think? I'm holdin' out for somethin' better. I figure I'll eliminate the middle man. Why not just shoot my buddy, take his job and give it to his sworn enemy, hike up gas prices, bomb a village, club a baby seal, hit the hash pipe and join the National Guard? Christ, I could be elected President.

    Love that part :)

    Yes, that Will Hunting, and that is a classic part of the movie.

    The irony, as it concerns this discussion, is the lack of moral reasoning Will used in making the decisions that got him arrested, as opposed to the enormous amount of moral reasoning he used in the job interview lines that you quoted.

    As concerns the Wonderlic...it may not be an accurate indicator of the IQ of these football players, but Gore scoring a damn 6 on the thing has to say something. Also, that 13 by Berlin seems awfully low for a QB.

    One of the great lines from that movie. In the bar at the beginning with the pompous grad student.

    "The sad thing is, in about 50 years you might start doin' some thinkin' on your own and by then you'll realize there are only two certainties in life.

    One, don't do that. Two-- you dropped a hundred and fifty grand on an education you coulda' picked up for a dollar fifty in late charges at the Public Library."

    I was surprised Fraser's score wasn't higher.

    I guess you haven't seen him "command" the team then?
     
  13. JohnnyCockfight

    I hear what you're saying--his command of the team was quite low as well...but not nearly as low as his counterpart upstate, Chris Rix.:)

    Unfortunately, I saw Berlin play at UVA, and his command was a little higher than normal that day.

    Some things come to mind:

    -If MoC triples you on any type of IQ test the federal government should step in and have you sterilized before you can contaminate the gene pool.

    -A freakin 6 !!?? Thats only 6 more points than I got and I didn't even take the damn thing! Seriously, is this guy even literate?

    - I didn't think there was any doubt ol' Brock was a bit challenged but a 13 has to be getting you into the range of handicapped parking...and he was the QB!!! Easy transition to the NFL for sure :roll2:

    -Cryami had a 13 and a 10 trying to read a defense and run routes accordingly while a 6 was in the backfield trying to figure out his pass pro responsibilities. Somehow I can't get the Three Stooges theme music out of my head.

    - I could go on, but for Mr Everett I just have this to say. Your only twice as smart as the dumbest MF'er to ever take the test. You like apples? Well how about them apples?


    I think Abbey said it best about Miami:
