Most people seem to form this opinion based on his comments right after the bama game when he wass frustrated about a loss.
Lets all be reminded exactly what he said.
Iíll start with the football game. First of all, it wasnít very pretty to watch. It wasnít pretty to sit on the sideline and watch as a player, it sucks I canít do anything about it. Do I feel that we, at times, gave up out there? Absolutely. As a leader it sucks to see people not do their jobs and to see things go wrong, there has been a lot of things go that way.
As a leader, at this point you have to look forward. There has been a lot of people jump off of the bandwagon and it is my job to keep everyone in this organization and this team in that locker room together. I am going to make sure of it going forward. Weíve got a big game against Rutgers next week. I am going to do everything in my power to be a part of it and be the starting quarterback when we run out onto the field. And most importantly, get a win. You have to start with one before you can get the rest of them. I give you my word, I am going to do the best I can to make that happen.
IMO I think a lot of reaction to this is overblown and I don't think it was that bad.
I never heard that, though I heard about it.
I base my opinion on Wilson't leadership on his body language and the way he reacts to both good and bad.
But having now seen what it was that he said, I don't like the fact that he made a public statement about his team giving up in a game he wasn't able to participate in.
