For a young man, handling adversity shows your true color.
Bridgewater has yet to be "exposed" to such scrutiny.

He may not have been exposed to the same amount of scrutiny as Newton or Manziel, but anybody who is a Heisman candidate for most of the year has certainly been placed under the microscope to some degree.
He has certainly face adversity though.
