And A&M passed over Drew Brees/Major Applewhite back when it was a graveyard for highly recruited QBs. Every system/situation is different. Can't compare especially when you're talking about a mid major conference, Big East.
Even knowing how much I hate Louisville, I have to respectfully disagree. Bridgewater is a pretty unique talent and was pretty damn tough playing with a sprained ankle and a broken wrist last night. Now I think you can make the argument that he may not have developed the same but at the same time Shawn Watson is a decent QB coach but nothing to fawn over either.
