Yes I am. Unless there's something at the University that has triggered this depression abuse of some sorts, then I'm not really going to put much stock in his claim. And, yes depression is a serious issue it should not be taken lightly nor used as a way out from a tough situation

I have to say I have a hard time believing the waiver claims coming from these kids. Hudson wasn't denied mental/cognitive help, he was denied a transfer in order to play immediately. If depression just magically disappears by changing schools then we've hit a medical breakthrough ...

All of us are broken dude. I’d be careful with the rhetoric as dire as this. 

How many of us spar with our spouse on a daily basis in a sarcastic or passive aggressive manner? Do you think that doesn’t do as much damage to the fabric of the family? What about the kids that live in a quiet in financially stable home with zero drama yet never see their parents show any intimacy at all or witness their parents talk in friendship or even pray? 

If we’re going to made to witness this then let’s, at least, approach it with a little more empathy and humility. I see two very sad individuals who most likely could have worked things out had they been giving the tools and ability to internalize the issues between them. Or simply just say, “my life belongs to my wife and vice versa”

Maybe this is why Urban and Shelly wanted to help them?

I firmly believe the cross of the man is to handle these situations better. Bottom line, Zach shouldn't have lost control. He should have just said ok and moved on. As long as someone assured me that the kids were ok at school, which in likelihood they were. 

I wonder how much the situation would heal if Zach just learned to walk away?

Master of Liberal Arts??? C'mon Joe. It's free. Get a MA in something relevant even if you're going to be a millionaire by next Spring.

Mind you, this was all based upon what I read on Wikipedia. But my first thought was that Dawson just wanted to be part of an offense that passed more. 

Also, if there was any similarity to his lifestyle in college to that of his in the pros, I doubt Woody would have put up with a player smoking and drinking beer in the locker room.

Lived in Pickerington and graduated from what is Central now. 

They've spoken about a South High School for a bit now. I'm just not sure where they would put it. 

And I agree, kids move into the district if they can to take advantage of the schools and the large sports program. Both Central and South are as close to a College Prep HS as you can get.
