Colin Cowherd said an NFL source once told him you would basically have to be illiterate to score a 4 on the Wonderlic. This is the stuff the NCAA should look into, rather than looking at Boise State giving guys $20 worth of food or something.

I'm pretty sure Roddy made a four.

RE: NBR: Wow
To score that low he probably got stuck on an early question and spent way too much time trying to figure it out rather than skipping it and moving on. He would have done better if he would have just randomly picked answers for all 50 questions. His agent shares a great deal of blame for this for not having him prepared.

How much preparation do you really need for this?

Quote:Charlie Wonderlic Jr., president of Wonderlic Inc., says, "A score of 10 is literacy, that's about all we can say."

Article makes it seem like a 4 isn't necessarily that rare, though.

The average person scores around a 20. That is a sample of the easier questions on the test. There are much more difficult questions. BTW, I didn't mean the agent should have prepared him to answer the questions (not time for that). I mean the agent should have better prepared him for basic test taking strategies (such as skipping tough questions and going back to them if there is time).

Or stuff that your should have learned in high school perhaps? My point is if these guys are scoring that poorly on a simple test, then how did they maintain a passing GPA in college?

The same way Kentucky somehow ends up with these type students in college - look the other way & "make sure they pass".

Another question:
When the FB bowls or, for BB the NCAA Tourney, ends and the players "prepare" for the draft and miss months of schoolwork, how does the university not suffer APR penalties when the players flunk out (or do they). I know a university is not punished when a player leaves to pursue a pro career, but I think he still has to be in good academic standing. There have been numerous cases of an athlete completing a bowl game or tourney and literally NEVER returning to the college campus. How does the player's grades and the teams APR not be affected?
