This is a reasonable take, Huffdaddy. Maybe too reasonable. Because the responses show people are only thinking about football. Good parents are also considering other things their kids need. Not just at the university, but also emotionally, relationally, etc. Some kids can relocate for college and thrive. Others, for various reasons, struggle. I am not suggesting Wolfe deals with mental health issues, but if DJ Carton’s mom had put her foot down two years ago, that probably would have been good for her boy since his struggles began in high school. But we wouldn’t have known or understood that. And we would have called her selfish too. And we would have assumed the distance concern involved the travel it would require to see him play. So who knows, maybe mama really knows best here?
But at the end of the day, we’re almost all guilty of OSU bias. And that’s why Wolfe’s mom is the villain. If Jack Sawyer wanted to go to USC but his mom put her foot down, you all know she would be an instant hero on these boards. Haha.
