    “Let me tell you how (Brian) was brought up,” the father said. “We had one rule — we’re simple people. It was never, ever embarrass your mother or father or you’re out of here, and they all knew the rule. Hey, I lived the good life, you know, normal guy stuff — girls, alcohol. … But there’s one thing I’d never accept. The one thing I detest is drugs.

    “I’d rather see him do anything else than sports if he had to do that.”

    Much, much more in article. I enjoyed the read.

    It was a good read but first thing I thought was mommas and daddies often do not have a clue to what their child is doing.

    I wonder if he detests Aspirin and coffee. Oh no wait, he's fine with alcohol just not DrrrUuUUgGGs.

    I'm sure Brian Cushing checks with pops before making any decisions himself.

    Very interesting story. I had no idea anybody in NJ took scolastic football that seriously for themsevles and their kids ? This sounds like a Texas family.
    Speaking of kids, it's gonna be interesting to see if the new and growing group of young (HS age) fans following Cushing will be affected, one way or the other, by this episode ?

    couple things:

    • Cushing media coverage will continue to grow & develop
    • these allegations followed him from USC & will continue to follow him long after the Texans
