In a world mired by 'bad news' being the only news that is usually broadcast, it is uplifting to read this true story. [Just imagine some of the social pressures that must have been upon both parties: Big Mike, and the Tuohys. - Let's remember, that not a lot of Memphis is as poised to cross this tenous inter-racial bridge! - If they were, 'Big Mike' would have owned a bed long before reaching his 15th birthday!] And as for Michael Oher and the Tuohys, I don't think that there's much that will come between them, and any 'pending' dire consequences. Q.) When does a parent go through this much to see that 'their child' is properly prepared for the world at large, and then simply abandon them? The answer is, that they don't. *What I find intriguing in this story, is the NCAA. - Q.) When did they become so pious? - They should be alittle more concerned with USC, than they are with Ol Miss! ...but the comment by Sean Sr., about the Mormons, is somewhat concerning. (and he's supposed to be the miracle worker with young people's minds - hhmmm.)
