I understand both sides of the coin to an extent. Bottom line is RW was an STAR QB, Student, and representative of NCSU. He was a great 2 sport athlete that enjoyed being here because he could do both well. So yeah he does deserve a little more flexibility making a “life” decision as someone who was still just a young man. I know TOB was trying to make the right decision for the future with the unknown of RW even coming back. Either way, everyone and their brother knows TOB wanted a Glennon style QB. Heck RW last season under TOB was a little tough because TOB tried to keep him in the pocket way too much. Not taking anything away from Glennon (who is a great QB) but RW was not a typical QB for TOB’s game. Problem was RW was good enough to make the offense match him and not the other way around.
Slice it how you want but TOB’s decision NOT to be more flexible than “normal” did cost him. So I guess TOB was fair but sometimes you need to weigh other factors (again RW was an exceptional student athlete and 2 sport player) such as the ability for a kid to make up his mind. Glennon may have transferred in the end but I don’t think he Glennon was calling the shots here. TOB wanted a pocket passer anyway and he liked Giraffe’s better than the Cheetah.
Water under the bridge…Most all of us would have loved to see RW call his last college destination Raleigh. My guess is now so would have TOB.
