if someone can dig up that robotdevil study that tried no iq, we could probably find the answer in there. i would assume there was some reference to the iq of the players along the way. we know there is a negligible increase from not playing something at all. speculation is it is either some tiny growth from 0 minutes or from playing against a set. so the iq of the set he played would have to outstrip the iq in sets he didn't play, to draw a conclusion.
it is interesting to read this whole thing
through again, especially since I forget what happened at breakfast by dinner...
A couple of my favorite comments from it so far:

Meta-comment alert: How amazing is it that this whole, wonderful little endeavor was proposed, discussed, improved, and implemented among a bunch of strangers who don't even know each others' real names and who are ostensibly in competition with each other? I wish that real life worked as well as this board does.
This next post later turned into a whole page "discussion" over the 1000 mile rule and should be applied across all divisions. "ALT-ID-GATE" and the great purge followed sometime after (I'd say soon, but how the hell would I remember whether or not it was really soon...)

well, there is probably only a 2% chance my guess is right, but if it is, the poster is a pretty good guy. slightly misguided in a couple areas (laughing), but still a good guy.
dahs - if there is something wrong with him, or he is not honestly a national championship coach, i think that would out itself pretty quickly.
i too do not know why hed want to hide his identity, but who knows, could be anything. maybe hes stated opinions about the subject previously and doesn't want those comments in play. maybe he has a team in d3 knight and its within a 1000 miles and he doesn't want to listen to people ***** or have CS make him move. or maybe he just has a team in every 2 a day world in general, and doesn't want to possibly cross any boundaries. im not even sure if the fair play rules said its 1000 miles in the same division. i mean, if not, that would be crazy... but i really dont remember it saying 1000 miles was limited to the same division. hopefully CS doesnt go enforcing that now because a lot of coaches would be ********, there are quite a few offenders, many of them well respected. but anyway, i digress. there are plenty of reasons he might not want to share, and not all of them include him being a serial killer :)
next is the last post of real value to the study.

Well it finally happened. After the 55th game(Last game of 2nd season) my players went from an F to a D-. Not just in motion/man-to-man, but in all offenses and defenses. The one sophomore who didn't was Blair and that must just be due to the fact that his WE(35) is lower than the other sophomores. I suspect he will switch over a few games into the next season. I knew this happened at some point and Iguana had already spoken of this earlier, but now we know it is right around the end of 2nd season or beginning of 3rd depending on WE.
And here is the history of the school from the time in question
