Reading below a 4th grade level (A single digit Wonderlic score) qualifies for full scholarship
at Texas IF you generate income for the University. Certainly fits my definition of an institutional
cash wh-ore.

p.s.
The posted results were from tests given after receiving their university education.
A wonderlic score of 21 indicates an IQ of 100.
You still don't get it SOB. BTW Young's supposed score of "6" is urban legend and has never been confirmed and wonderlic is strictly for NFL owners. You're a fool if you don't think any and every athlete is brought on campus to generate income for the university; University of Texas had $92 million in NET profit last year. Texas A&M netted $94 million. Wonder how many non-athletic scholarships that will provide, male and female ??? How much research will it cover ?? Have you ever read this??

He just opened another on the Texas A&M campus. Free exams and glasses for needy students. Wonder what his Wonderlic score was? (You'll google it) Just one small example. These worthless people raise millions of millions for worthy causes every year and good people could care less what their wonderlic score was.

But hang in there SOB, someday you'll hit the big one yourself but don't use your own judgement. Use a good bookie.

You are wrong sir.
The wonderlic test has been used since the '50s by many fortune 500 companies in hiring and
screening engineering and management candidates. It is a combination of intelligence and
critical thinking ability testing.

In the early '70s Tom Laundry was the first coach in the NFL to have their scouting department use
the wonderlic test when interviewing players the team was considering drafting. The Cowboy's
success in player evaluation led other teams to follow suit a few years later and now many years
later the testing is administered in a controlled environment by the NFL.

During a job interview I was tested (not knowing what it was until afterwards) in the late '80s.
And not one NFL owner gave a tinker's dxm how I scored. :)

In 1960 one year tuition averaged $300 a year at the U of Minnesota.
Today $15,000 a year.
So much for all the 'good' those sports dollars have done for the student population.

Why would you intentionally misspell coach Landry’s name? He was a class act from start to finish.

Because he's from Minnesota, has no clue what any kind of championship means, college or NFL, has to talk about air conditioning at a game in the locker room, and Texas being a bad host, been lucky enough to play high school football in Texas, and know what it's all about, its something special, no other way to describe it.

I dont think that the representative from his state allows any contact sports, maybe cricket or swimming.

Now, now Minnesota is the home of 2 time Olympic gold medal winner Lindsay Whalen.

And while I have not personally participated in winning any kind of meaningful championship,
(other than coaching 4 undefeated youth football teams, meaningful only to the kids themselves)
I have observed Lindsay's career and off court life going back to her high school days.
I.M.O. her lifestyle and conduct exemplifies the epitome of a sports role model for all youth.
As Tennessee Tuxedo would say... she's a credit to her gender. :tiphat:

Butch.... just found out Vince Young went back to UT and got his degree after retiring from pro football. Went to work for the University of Texas and was fired shortly thereafter for not showing up for work to many times . That should put the icing on the cake for you.

And the queens lost to the Packers again, Cousins is a great of a trade as Walker was, how do you queens keep doing it, must have learned from that 2 time gold medalist. 🤣

Kirk Cousins 230 yds passing and he rushed for 17 yds while sacked 1 time.
Aaron Rodgers 209 yds passing 0 yds rushing sacked twice.
I don't know how the Vikings lost with clearly the superior quarterback.
Must have been a full moon... :)

p.s.
Minnesota has a long list of runner up finishes, including 2 vice-presidents and a Rose Bowl.

How the Gophers finished 2nd to Ohio State in the Big Ten in 1961... yet won the Rose Bowl.
In a move that would be unheard of today; in a decision to emphasize Academics over Athletics
and Money, Ohio State's faculty council turned down the Rose Bowl contract, sending Minnesota
with no bowl game for the Buckeyes. Led by black qb Sandy Stephens Minnesota went on to win
21-3 over UCLA and finished 6th in The National polls.

Superior quarterback,🤔 if you say so, looks like stats dont win games or superbowls, highly doubt that Brady worries about stats, just the six rings he has and wouldn't bet against him winning a seventh.

It's a team sport. New England time of possession 33m :10s vs Rams 26:50
Ball control/clock management/game tempo is one of the most overlooked and important stats in
winning football games. 2/3 (68%) of the games are won by the team that wins time of possession.
Keeping your defense off the field and rested while wearing opponents defense down is a big fringe benefit.

7 for 21 and 2 interceptions when not under pressure for Cousins, there's your stats on why they lost the game.

Hey, no fair bringing up facts that I conveniently left out... lol
1st and goal from 8 yard line and float/loft interception into double covered receiver is
unforgivable. :( Even worse when down by 5 with 3 minutes left in the game.

First thing I said was... Case Keenum never would have thrown that ball.
