I will revise what I meant, hes not stupid because of a wonderlic test score, hes stupid for wasting his opportunity at a higher education.

college isn't for everybody.. more so for guys who are about to make millions.. you can speculate further, but it hardly means anything when the guy is going to succeed doing what he loves, instead of making outsiders feel good because they buy into "higher education" is the end all/be all in life..

no

"job"?

"a job ain't nuthin but work" , Johnny Stewart

career is the word you are looking for I think and football careers are relatively short by comparison to almost any other career with the potential to be cut really short due to personal injury.

using college to get into the league but for nothing more despite the opportunity running fast and jumping high has afforded a person shows at minimum a mild level of ignorance. But that is exactly what SEC schools are around for so whadaya gonna do?

Someone verify this for me but I think Chris Gamble scored a 6 or something on the Wonderlic.

http://espn.go.com/b...-hurt-claiborne

When the Carolina Panthers drafted Chris Gamble back in 2004, there were reports that the cornerback also had a low Wonderlic score. The Panthers did their homework on Gamble and drafted him. It’s worked out pretty well. Gamble’s been starting for the last eight seasons and has 27 career interceptions.

You don't need to be able to set the world on fire to swat a ball out of the air.

a learning disability implies that there is a desire/want to learn. I'm thinking he just doesnt care. his plan was to goto the NFL, not become an engineer. So lets call it what it is, laziness. And you guys want this guy? Pass.

what? i think u like dildos, and you think anyone cares about your opinion? pass.

Let's be honest here, guys. If it weren't for his football ability, dude would not be at LSU. Period. End of story.

It's why I understand the legitimate gripe parents have with certain schools and the NCAA. Their child is a responsible student. They work hard in high school to make good grades and maybe even earn an academic scholarship. They get denied from their school of choice but some idiot who can throw a football 70 yards or run really fast gets a free ride to the same school.

Then these same "student athletes" with the reading level of a 7th grader get kicked out of school for robbing a fellow student or doing drugs. Or they leave for pro sports in a season.

"Student-athletes" - LOL. Yeah. right.
