I would have no issue with the involvement of parents (or other trusted people) if initial attempts to resolve the issue were stonewalled. Hell, all of us adults need help from time to time. If, however, an adult's first instinct upon meeting a real world challenge is to call Mommy and Daddy, I would tend to think that that person's self-reliance and personal responsibility are lacking.
May I ask why you "cannot imagine" telling another adult to handle a situation on her own instead of having her parents handle it for her?
Maybe not THE point, but a good one nonetheless. This is what happens when a society attempts to make the world a padded cell for its children (they never grow up).
Wow, I feel so relieved now that you have assessed this situation from your *obviously* omniscient vantage point.
"Oh, Mommy, so-and-so called me a bad name! Fire his boss!" This whole thing sounds like the product of helicopter parenting to me. While I need to read more about the situation, I have a feeling that my definition of sexual harassment deviates significantly from that of THE increasingly-politically correct Ohio State University.
I think if UK had been playing almost anyone besides UM, I would have more enthusiastically rooted against them. Are they one of the most annoying teams in college basketball? Yes. Is their success a major reason for that? Absolutely. Look at tOSU in football: as fans, we wonder why we get "hated on," but then we find reasons to hate on other similarly successful programs. Not saying there is any objective comparison between Calipari and Meyer, but I could see how there is an apparent comparison from certain perspectives (the "SEC" view, the "scUM" view, etc.). Finally, none of this is wrong, IMO, as long as it's recognized for what it is.
Helluva game, loaded with momentum swinging runs. UK was fortunate to make a late run and grab the lead in the closing minutes. While UM was amazingly clutch down the stretch, cutting away all of UK's lead by :30 to go, the game winner hit by Harrison was on a different level.
This Matta 5 is not exactly great in winning time.
Cool thread. For the last two years, I've been lifting heavy 3x/week and doing Crossfit 5x/week. It's been great, but if I had access to a pool I would definitely swim regularly too.
He was like a little spoiled brat after that pass interference call. Made my day seeing his ugly mug after that kickoff recovery.
Way to go, Sparty. Makes that B1GCG loss a little more palatable. A little.
Odds of Sparty choking this one away? I'm gonna say fairly high.
B-1-G! B-1-G! Lol
Sparty No. Bad Sparty.
Yeah I saw that too.
Shaping up to be another Big Ten blowout in the Rose Bowl. Fuck this pathetic conference. The Bucks should just go independent at this point.
How so? I thought the commentary was fairly balanced, which is more than can be said for a lot of OSU games that ESPiN broadcasts.
So true. While I'd rather our D be lock-down, they've been opportunistic at the very least this year. Also, if I could only have one of the two, I'd take a good rush D over a good pass D. One thing that correlates pretty tightly with winning is being about to stuff the run. That was something the 2002 team did relatively well.
He signs with AA and they'll be laying sod the next day.
How many TFLs does Shazier get in THE GAME? I expect him to be even more maniacal than usual this week.

NEVER voluntarily talk to the cops. Otherwise you might end up getting an involuntary colonoscopy.

Winning ugly in the SEC = winning gritty. --Gary Danielson
Maybe one of Urban's players at Ohio State...but we all know he's running an SEC-style operation in Columbus, so that doesn't really count.
(Sarcasm font) Of course we all know that none of these silly player protection rules exist in the NFL. SEC PLAYS NFL-STYLE DEFENSE! TARGETING RULE NOT FAIR TO SEC!
