I told you all it was bs back then. I was in business with 2 former players(one who is one of the top donors) and catered several football staff functions. I think BB is the biggest piece of s*** there is. Not one person found fact in what just Auburn reporters were saying. Paul Chryst ran the entire offense(decided on starters) and told RW that he had a chance to compete and win the job if he put in the work and won the team over. Told RW that with his skill set he would develop his pro style offense similar to his NC State offense if he did the work. I was further told that the offensive line situation(We had 4 new starters) and the offensive scheme was what sold him on UW(the entire starting offense played in the NFL). Basically Gus' system and coaching was a step backwards in furthering development. Something that we all found out to be true besides a couple of Gus is God posters. It is sad for me to say it but a few Auburn people were butt hurt to lose to UW in the recruitment and gave a crappy excuse for losing and tried to trash a young man's character. I think most of you could narrow it down to which coaches on the staff may have said things like this, I got my guesses, if that is where they are claiming the leak from.
The work that RW put in was at a level that I have never heard of from a college football player. He would be in Camp Randall throwing balls to nobody just to get use to the pitch of the field, etc. All of it is well documented on how hard he worked. Seems like an awful lot of effort for someone who was looking to be handed the job and just had to show up. Heck, what got him the starting job in Seattle, his dedication to his job. He has that eat, sleep and breath football mindset that you find in most great quarterbacks.
To this day, not one person says it any differently and the vast majority of them have all hated BB from the day that they met him and don't have to play nice now.
