Tim Tebow Is As Dumb As A Box Of Rocks

Well, as far as results of his Wunderlic test are concerned. But you know what they say, standardized tests like the Wunderlic have been known to be notoriously biased against Christians.

Yep, not only is Tebow lagging far behind other draft-eligible quarterbacks in the, you know, actually being able to play the position department, Mister Perfect scored a measly 22 on the Wunderlic, which is considered below average. For quarterbacks entering the draft, the average score is 24. Even worse for Tebow, when the Wonderlic test is used as a barometer for future success in the NFL, there’s this statistic: the last seven Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks averaged 30.1 on the test.

What makes Tebow’s test results even curiouser is he considered something of a dynamo during his academic career at the University of Florida.

Tebow, though, was celebrated for his academic as well as athletic achievement during his four years at Florida. In 2009 he won the National Football Foundation’s William V. Campbell Trophy, otherwise known as the “Academic Heisman,” for his success on the field, in the classroom and community leadership.

Tebow graduated Florida with a 3.66 GPA as a Family, Youth and Community Services major, and he is a three-time member of the SEC Academic Honor Roll and a two-time First Team Academic All-American.

That leaves only two conclusions: either the University of Florida is a below-average university or the Wunderlic test is bullshit.

Or could it be a little of both?
