I remember when I really liked and admired Matthews. It was a long time ago.

I will say in his defense that most people who've done really well on Jeopardy have admitted that half the skill at least comes from being really fast on the button. If you don't have that you have a hard time.

I heard a guy talk about the science behind the win and IIRC, he did.

He argued they slow your reaction time with the green room food buffet. He made a point of not eating or drinking (except for water) during the hours of taping.
