I mean that dude might actually be retarded too, eating a whole bag of weed gummies and having a seizure on the team plane.

      I thought the back and forth was handled well in this episode. Other times the writers make Peggy too ham-fistedly dumb or stubborn but here you had more nuance with Hank having to face up to the reality of all the bullshit everyone else was willing to pull. And make no mistake, the student athlete system is filled with bullshit. Basically sets up 99% of them who can't go pro and rake in fat endorsements for failure in the long run.

      That fucking essay David writes followed by Hank taking a shot of beer cracks me up every time.

    She should've done far more, bringing to light all the other teachers who had given him good grades, contributed to him being a barely literate mollycoddled manchild that expected to always get his way Because Sports. The way he acted before Peggy stepped in, he probably would've ended up killing someone (probably his wife) in a few years. As it stands he was himself outraged to find out that people had been giving him free passes that he didn't earn.
