More proof that If you can throw a football or shoot a three pointer you can get into any college you want. This does not come as a surprise to me.

Pat Mcinally is the only known player to have scored a 50. Where'd he go to college? Harvard of course. Last year Harvards QB also scored a perfect 50, but he wasn't drafted.

A 15 question sample:

Fact check:

Ryan Fitzpatrick was that Harvard QB last year, and he scored a 38 out of 50.
He also WAS drafted, with pick #36 in rd 7 of last years draft. He eventually played a few games last year after some troubles at QB for Bulger and Martin for the Rams.

Hardwork also said the Pasties would win the Super Bowl next year, so, well, you know, can't expect much fact-wise out of a guy like that.

My mistake. It was a rumor. He got a 38 in 9 minutes. I guess that just makes suitanut the cats ass and hipchest the cats ass licker.


>>Ryan Fitzpatrick has heard it over and over. It repeats like a broken record whenever someone recognizes him. Every camp, combine or workout he attended, it was always the same.

"I get it a lot," Fitzpatrick said. "Going to the East-West game and the Hula Bowl that was assumed from day one. I didn't even have a name then, my name was Harvard."

Harvard is certainly a name that speaks for itself. The Ivy League school has built its reputation as one of the premier academic institutes in the world. The thought of the Crimson invokes images of some of the world's most innovative scientists, mathematicians and historians.

Rarely, though, does the thought of Harvard bring to mind any sort of connection to football, at least not at the NFL level. When the Rams called Fitzpatrick's name with one of their seventh-round choices, Fitzpatrick immediately set out to change the perception of what a quarterback from Harvard is capable of.?
Rams coach Mike Martz said there was plenty to like about Fitzpatrick.

"The way we grade and rate quarterbacks, he was rated fairly high," Martz said. "He is very accurate, very intelligent and extremely competitive. He is an interesting guy."

Of course, Fitzpatrick knows what his perceived positives are. Without ever speaking to a team official or answering a Wonderlic question, it was widely assumed that Fitzpatrick was one of the smartest players in the draft simply because of the name on the "college" line of his resume.

The assumptions spun out of control to the point that a rumor spread that Fitzpatrick scored a perfect 50 on the Wonderlic, a timed test designed to determine a prospective player's ability to process information quickly.

Though that rumor was not true, Fitzpatrick doesn't shy away from the smart label.

"I didn't score perfect on it," Fitzpatrick said. "I had a 38 out of 50. I got through the test in about nine minutes, I didn't answer one question. Took test at combine, people heard I finished it so quickly and assumed that I had a perfect. I'm a perfectionist, so I wish I would have done better. Being from Harvard, though, they know I can process information."

Fortunately, for the world, what you think has no basis in reality. Fortunately, for me, we took care of the Rams several years ago. But you can contemplate them if you'd like and keep us briefed. After all, that's why we put up with people like you. To keep us informed about all the little things.

Not to hip, I suspect you're a shut in, but keep the rest of your sad life to yourself. It's embarrassing to think we're rubbing elbows with your kind when we post about football.

Go read about scoring stats in the third quarter of games played in the rain at stadiums that have more then three vowels in their names and had more then one white runing back for two seasons in a row including the strike year.
