From an article entitled "Scouts take long look at Tebow," by Scott Wood.
An intriguing player is former Florida State safety Myron Rolle, who graduated in 2008 and then spent last year as a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford, deciding to put his potential NFL career on hold.
"The Rolle kid is really interesting. The intangibles are off the charts," Mayock said.
It seems that the NFL scouts actually have a chart for intangibles and they offer it in an Excel spreadsheet. I downloaded the spreadsheet and plugged in Rolle's numbers.
What do you know? They are not actually off of the charts. Mike Fucking Mayock LIED.
Here are Rolle's numbers:
Gumption (out of a possible 100): 14.1! He is almost totally devoid of gumption.
Stick-to-it-ness (out of a possible 135) 84! Slightly above the average.
Iciness (out of a possible 7): 48! Even though Rolle's iciness score IS actually off the charts (by almost seven times!), there is an additional plug-in for the Excel spreadsheet that lets you measure intangibles that are actually OFF THE CHARTS!!!
There are twelve more intangible metrics on the spreadsheet, yet Rolle only is technically off the charts on Iciness. Let's just skip the rest, mmmmkay?
Personally, I assume that Mayock does not actually have Microsoft Excel or if he does, he has no idea how to use it. This is basically why I do not watch or listen to any sportscasters at all. And pro footbaw can blow me.
Please take the time to comment.
