Just that it was a pitch job by Boeing looking for business. I don't believe the air force bought into it.

Sort of... It was related to the Army's FCS (Future Combat Systems) program that got cancelled. The C-17B proposal would have been minuscule compared to the FCS price tag of about $340 Billion.
