The article really was more defending McIlwain's situation, but talked about him perhaps needing more time to develop, which I guess is what set off Brandon's mom. I never saw anything in the post that targeted the USC coaches, especially anything at all about Bobby Bentley....
But regarding McIlwain leaving the program, the bad side is that we still don't know that Bentley will develop into the QB we need for future success. He certainly has shown us glimpses of that, and has all the potential and intangibles. But having McIlwain here was not only a stop-gap should Jake fall off or get injured, but he also served as legit competition for the starting QB job, to make sure BOTH QBs stayed on their toes preparing for the season. Now that Brandon is gone, I hope Jake doesn't get too relaxed, feeling like the job's his to lose and he still couldn't lose it. The other side of that coin is the fact that his father IS on the staff, and can put his shoe up Jake's butt if he feels his son starts getting too fat and sassy....
She mentioned how her son didn't have the benefit of having Deebo and how the coaches son was getting him and preferential treatment by getting to play against the weakest defense on our schedule or something similar.
It was definitely an ugly look and some fairly serious accusations IMO.
