His everyman appearance, laid-back demeanor and penchant for, uh, almost nude calisthenics have endeared him to fans across the country.

"I played about a half and then we get in for the next week and the starter is going to be back", Minshew said. So shoot, I'm standing there and I go in and play about a half. He expected, with two seniors above him in the pecking order, that he wouldn't play at all that season, allowing him to redshirt and play three full seasons after the guys ahead of him graduated. So I'm like, 'Dang man, I just played a half and really wasted a year on playing a half of ball.' So I was pretty pissed so I started looking around at what I could do and what my options were. The only thing I could do was to get a medical redshirt. And, I go back into my room, I take a pull of the Jack Daniels, I put my hand down on the table and BOOM! "I mean, I know it sounds odd but after you know Gardner for not too long of a period of time, that really doesn't surprise you that much". I go home, I grabbed a bottle of Jack Daniels, and I grab a hammer. Still nothing at this point and knew it wasn't broken. I knew it wasn't broken, so one more time, another pull, another three hits and that was all I could take. That was all I could take.

"Here's a story, the only group of people I've ever told is the Washington State football team before this past year and it was just about, 'What would you do to play more football?'" Minshew told the Pardon My Take podcast. "I'd do damn near anything", he told them.
Alvin Tedjo, who is of Indonesian descent, took a stronger tone in his statement. "I'm disappointed and pissed off at myself". Trudeau said he hadn't understood at the time "how hurtful this is to people who live with discrimination every single day".
