    Yeah, but he looked really good at hitting college kids with basketballs! It's nice those on the Right have a real he-man tough guy they can get behind.

    Sadly he actually got a 'like' on that post. I imagine he got quite a few quiet 'attaboys' however from the closet variety of bigot, however.

    If by age 18-22 you haven't figured out how to deal with bullies and assholes you're pretty much screwed and DEFINITELY don't belong in high level competitive sports.

    However, since you posted the video, it shows the effects of that wussification. If even one of those players had any kind of gonads at all the story would have been "Rutgers coach found duct taped to goat on campus quad"
    Or they could not react instead of acting and potentially [probably] losing their way to pay for college.

    Get serious. Nobody is more vulnerable that college kids on athletic scholarships. They are totally at the mercy of assholes and bullies. Which apparently is OK with many on the Right, as complaining about assholes and bullies only shows what a wuss you are.

    Important to remember that what happens to you in life or your circumstances are not as important as how you feel about and react to those events and circumstances. The all important interpretation and styles of reaction are where women are enormously different from men. That is why fathers are absolutely necessary and why we are becoming a nation of wussies.

    It's a matter of HOW you react. If you're stupid enough to hit the coach then, again, you don't belong in competitive sports. However, that wouldn't be the only option open to these guys.

    Other options include? They can (and almost assuredly would) lose their scholarship(s) if they retaliated in any way. There are NCAA rules. Also, even if they didn't face NCAA rules, they'd presumably be second-guessed if they attempted to enter the Draft. How about if they applied for a job? The fact that these guys remained level-headed in lieu of these occurrences does speak to their character. It's not about being a "puss." What'd that Jesus-hippie-wuss have to say about turning that other cheek?
