Let the speculation on Cam Newton's Wonderlic test performance commence!

Let the speculation on Cam Newton's Wonderlic test performance commence!

By Juan Cena in SWRT on January 14, 2011

Yes, Virginia (and Auburn), people are already taking predictions on how now-former Auburn quarterback Cam Newton will do on the NFL's Wonderlic test. In fact, EDSBS has gone so far as to open up its own predictions thread over the matter. Of course, the obvious jokes are making the rounds too, as Drew Magary tweeted "I assume Cam Newton believes the Wonderlic is some kind of envelope sealing contest." To be honest, I'm more interested with what Ryan Mallett does on the Wonderlic. Well, I'm actually more interested in what his fake Twitter avatar, @SummerofMallett, has to say about it. It's sure to be something closer to the NSFW line than necessary. (via EDSBS) Originally Pubished at: Shirts With Random Triangles

Cam Newton is leaving school a year early and is entering the 2011 NFL Draft. Least. Shocking. Event. Ever. Seriously, who didn't see this coming. Dr. Midnight could see this one coming even without his infra-red goggles.

 (Big Tentacles is the SWRT look at the Big Ten and the schools it not-so-secretly covets.)      I'll Stick Around? Denard Robinson will probably not transfer from Michigan with Brady Hoke at the helm. (MGoBlog) As for Tate Forcier? He is apparently an ex-Wolverine. (The Detroit Free Press) Laying it on the line. The Hoke hire puts Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon's legacy (and probably his job) on the line. (Detroit Free Press) An offer he can't refuse?

(Black Heart Gold Pants) BASKETBALL "Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together... mass hysteria!" Penn State's victories over Michigan State and Illinois have helped make the start of conference play chaotic. (Hammer and Rails) Purple Reign. Northwestern defeated Iowa 90-71 in only the Wildcats third win against the Hawkeyes at Carver-Hawkeye Arena since 1946. (Chicago Tribune). Identity crisis? After Michigan State's overtime victory over Wisconsin, the Spartans may have figured out who they are as a basketball team this season. (Detroit Free Press) We're (almost) Number One! Florida State's upset victory over Duke sets the stage for Ohio State to become the Number One team in the country. (ESPN, BT Powerhouse) Originally Pubished at: Shirts With Random Triangles
