As with Part 1 of this “looking back” feature with Sean¬†Glennon, most of what is written here are his words, from a 90-minute interview. Points of clarification or narrative from us are in italics.

After his disastrous performance against Georgia in the 2006 Chick-fil-A Bowl, Glennon went through a long offseason of reflection.

I was in the pits for a little while after that bowl game. People have asked me if the fans got to me, and of course they get to you, but nobody in my life has been harder on me than myself. I’m the type of person who doesn’t need you to tell me I screwed up. I know. And I knew I let the team down.

So that gave me a lot of motivation in the offseason. Even the winter when there’s nothing you can really do, I broke a couple of weight room records. I was just kind of a man on a mission to redeem myself because I felt that all in all, I actually played pretty well in that 2006 season. It just ended so horrifically that I really didn’t get any due credit for it. The bottom line is that we went 10-2 during the season. It was a successful year. It just ended horribly.
