The combine number reaction appears to be selective logic. Eifert did great, Teo mixed (outside of his 40, which got all of the play, he did well besting his key competition in a number of the tests), and Motta bombed the test.
Not sure what to make of that. Some seem ready to give the S&C program an enema for some reason. S&C is not perfect and there may be a number of steps the staff can take to improve it, but it doesn't seem horribly broken IMO.
