I think he's fantastic and easily a top 10 pic. I just thought this was funny. While firing back at his critics, Claiborne put this on twitter.

"You guys don't no me #Top10,"

:F

That's just Twitter speak, and there's already a thread for this.

No posts on this subject unless you are talking about the discussion of it in the mockdraft post. Stop that crap. And I don't think he was using Twitter speak, unless he was worried that the 5 word post would be too long, or maybe there was someone timing him on his post so his learning disability kicked in.

He probably thought that it would be terribly obvious that it was Twitter speak, and that only ironically stupid people would point it out as evidence he is stupid.

Probably not...but he probably did think that posting it on Twitter would provide ample evidence that he was using Twitter speak.

I think dumb people use twitter-speak as a reason to not spell things correctly.

If he had any common sense, don't you think he'd pick up on the fact that using no would leave himself open to ridicule? That's if he was thinking so much as you believe. Do you really believe he thought it wass terribly obvious. Do you really? I find it hillarious that you think someone who scores a 4 on the wonderlic can think anything is obvious.

I doubt he put much thought into it...because it's so obvious.

I guess I'm saying point to his Wonderlic score as evidence that he's stupid. But pointing out that he used no instead of know on a medium on which such things are common is just as much evidence to me :)

I'm just pointing out that using no instead of know while defending your intelligence is funny. I didn't say stupid. I said funny. Then you jumped to his defense saying how he "Obviously" meant to do that. I don't think it's obvious that he meant to do that. I think you are reaching.

Q: If he types "lol" does that mean:
A:
    1) He hasnt got the work ethic to type "Laugh out loud"
    2) Cant spell "Laugh out loud"
    3) Thinks he typed "lot" instead
    4) Is just using syntax consistent with the forum hes using

Its twitter for Pete's sake. I REALLY dont think its a "Reach" (as you call it) to say he MEANT to right "no" instead of "know". It might be another symptom of his learning difficulties, too - we just dont know

In fact, theres a boatload of stuff noone knows so far. Dont know about you, but:

    I dont know what his learning disability is ...
    I dont know how severe it is ...
    I dont know how many questions he was able to read in 15 minutes (assuming he had dyslexia) ...
    I dont know his %age of questions (ie he could have answered 4 out of 4 or 4 out of 50- MASSIVE difference)
    I dont know if he was given the same 15mins as everyone else, or had extra time (as ADD students would get)
    I dont know if he had the paper in the same font as everyone else (or the different one used for people with learning difficulties, like dyslexia)
    I dont know what support he had at LSU for his disability during lessons that he might (or might not have had) during the test

Until i know any of the above, im not really bothered. Youve already decided what? Hes no book worm?

Great =D>

As the Ted Thorpe winner ... Bronco Nagurski finalist ... and SEC defensive PoY, i dont think it matters a ton in this instance.

As someone said elsewhere, whats the worst case? You say "Follow that guy and make sure he doesnt catch anything"?

I aint picking on you - or indeed anyone else that wants to say Claiborne's aint the sharpest tool - but i do think we should find out just a bit more first
