Wonderlic Personnel Test Score = 7

IQ = 2WPT + 60

IQ = 74

An IQ of 70-85 is classified as "Borderline Intellectual Functioning."

Ouch.

Anyone still think it's Tressel's fault he took a couple years to figure out the offense?

And yet he still explained how to read coverages better than Cam Newton did...

I'm not going to be a Pryor apologist and yes there was an arm punt or two, but how many bad decisions did he make on field that other QBs didn't?  Dude led the conference in TD passes last year.  Had a year or two on top of the QB ratings.  Also added a ton of rushing yards and TDs.  I feel like I didn't watch the same TP in college that the other 99% of the country watched.

For the record, this is not verified - and I am personally thinking that he did better than that.

Vince Young, your score is still safe

Fundamentals are a crutch for the talentless.

". . . the reported score of six was incorrect."

". . . Young scored a 16, the same as Dan Marino."

No way. Even if you guessed your way through it you would still score better then 7.

Dan Marino got a 14. Ryan Leaf got a 27

The Wunderlich is just another meaningless portion of the combine.

Although I guess he didn't take it at the combine lol.

Didn't TP carry a decent GPA?

These things seem to only leak when it's a white QB scoring high or a black QB scoring low. It's worthless metric anyway. I know the kid wasn't the brightest bulb in the lamp, but cut him some slack. To make fun of him for this (not that anyone here really is) is kinda of a dick move, bro.

Oh, put it back in the deck.  Wonderlic scores are leaked all the time.  Low ones, average ones, high ones. 

To me, a low Wonderlic score means you might have a lower level of intelligence, or in most cases, that you didn't try.  I know which one I'm putting my money on.  I've seen sample questions. They're piss easy.  Pryor has bad (realllly bad) judgement.  I'm not saying he is above average intellectually, but he's not stupid.  The 21 or whatever it was sounds reasonable.

I've had friends in classes with him and the online discussions were priceless... part of the grade required each student to comment online on something the professor had posted and his comments were... well... interesting to say the least...

Cause I couldn't go for three

Pryor responds to this report - was McGinn just trolling?

In the words of Austin Powers, while drinking "shit coffee:" "What does it oll mean, Basil?"

For anyone that hasn't since seen, John Clayton reported that Steelers GM Kevin Colbert, the man who administered Pryor's Wonderlic test both times he took it, has come forward saying that his scores were "significantly higher" than the 7 that was reported. 

After that Bob McGinn, the Packers' beat writer and "proud alum of Univ. of Michigan" who initially reported that Pryor scored a seven on the test, now reports that Pryor got a 21 on his next-day do-over. Pryor himself tweeted that he scored a 22.

Ohio State players need to start hiring lawyers and suing for libel. This is ridiculous.
