I think college athletics makes sense for the big schools (the big five conferences and a few others, basically) because they are usually self-sufficient (or close) due to the large media contracts and ticket sales. They also unquestionably boost enrollment.

I have no idea why anything below that still exists other than inertia. There was a great article on this on sbnation not that long ago. Without a good TV contract you're basically funding your sports by borrowing from the school or forcing athletic fees on your student body.

This is pretty much spot on. Anyone who managed to get a 3.0+ GPA in high school should get at least a 35 on the Wonderlic. It shouldn't require study or preparation. I took one at a management seminar; finished it with time left on the clock and crushed it. Nothing on the test required anything I learned in college. The most "difficult" questions are on the level of maybe a high school sophomore.

I don't believe it's a valid gauge of high intelligence, but I can see its value in revealing a person's laziness, learning disability, illiteracy, or plain old stupidity.

Probably the hardest question is "In printing an article of 48,000 words, a printer decides to use two sizes of type. Using the larger type, a printed page contains 1,800 words. Using smaller type, a page contains 2,400 words. The article is allotted 21 full pages in a magazine. How many pages must be in smaller type?" The answer is 17 but that is probably a 8th or 9th grade level algebra question that takes me about 90 seconds to solve. I would probably skip that one (if you are allowed) and finish it at the end if there was time.
March; it has the spring equinox and September has the autumn equinox.
