Gary Parrish:

Naturally, this development once again led to a debate on social media about whether it should be OK for a school to employ a parent or guardian or coach (or anybody) strictly for the purposes of securing a commitment from a player or two -- as if this kind of thing hasn't been going on for decades. Either way, my opinion remains consistent: Of course it's OK.

Want to know why polls have revealed that a majority of Americans have lost faith in almost all of our major institutions including academic institutions and media institutions (The two institutions related to this article, but only a small representative sample of them all)?

In my opinion, it is because in almost every aspect of our daily lives, we see examples of how the corruption of our major institutions is deemed to be "normal". Now we can count Gary Parrish (and CBS Sports) as one of those that feels compelled to "normalize" such corruption.

Sorry Gary; think I'll take a pass.

"Of course I think it's ok" would have been more appropriate, as it would have referred only to his moral compass. Passing off an opinion as if it is the obvious moral consensus shows quite an egotistical approach to these issues. I guess I can add him to my list of people I have to read with my guard up.
