Sunday, April 11, 2004 - Forget about midterms, finals or any other exam. The most important test each top college football prospect takes is the Wonderlic.

April 10, 2004 - The former owner of the Denver Broncos couldn't afford to buy back part of the team when a stake was offered to John Elway in 1998, current owner Pat Bowlen argued in court documents Friday.
