Your post is somewhat ironic and paradoxical...

You say, "I don't want to call out such a legend", then add your planned "but dang".

We see this approach to tactful bile when we hear a so-called friend say, "I don't want to say anything bad about so-and-so, but I would like to...". We know -- implicitly-- the first statement is a slickly disingenuous disclaimer for the previous or ensuing smack-down to come.

LW's parents and BW have been great; just what parents should do -- counsel, hope, and guide.

Rather than pen a post in which you phrase things as a "call out", you could have simply concurred that parents comments on their children are often reflective of their BEST HOPES for their child.

Anyone who has been a parent could tell you that they often failed to realize that their best hopes and influence gets supplanted by close peers as their kids venture into school. Why not give any such parents --not just the Word's, who have meant a lot to UVA-- some leeway and compassion when their child's decision doesn't always align with their advice, hopes, and plans?
