Former Bills QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, Harvard graduate, solves a Rubik's Cube in how long?

You might not know this, but Ryan Fitzpatrick went to Harvard.

Crazy, right? You'd think they would mention that on the television broadcast at some point. Anyway, as you might expect of someone who earned an economics degree from Harvard, Fitz is pretty smart. Don't take my word for it, though.

Take a look at just how quickly he solved a Rubik's Cube for a video on the Tampa Bay Buccaneeers' official website this week.

"I'm not a closet Cuber, I'm out there," Fitzpatrick told reporters in Tampa, according to ESPN's Jenna Laine. "I'm a Cuber."

So much so that he's teaching a class of 10 second- and third-graders how to solve the 3-D puzzle.

"I limit it to 10 because teaching 10 kids how to do the Rubik's Cube at one time is difficult, but my second-grader and my fourth-grader come in and help me," Fitzpatrick said. "It's just something that's kind of a hobby of mine that I have a lot of fun with, and there's a ton of interest in my son's school, people trying to learn it.

"I think right now we're up to six of the 10 can do it. None of them can beat me yet, but there's one girl that's awful close. So Sabrina, I hope you're not practicing that much. Hopefully we'll get all 10 to do it by next week."

Fitzpatrick signed earlier this offseason with the Bucs and is slated to be the backup quarterback to Jameis Winston. Tampa Bay visits the Bills in Week Seven.
