    As a relatively new troll here you may not know that his recruitment/not recruitment was a huge topic of discussion on this board. It is clear the recruiting of him from our end was soft, as it was for every high major school in the country until the summer of his junior year (due at least partially to his choice not to play summer tournament ball after his sophomore year). His recruiting blew up, and the coaching staff (mostly no longer here) had Washington higher on their list. People can call that a mistake and be fair, but that was the history. Your condemnation of the coaching staff has to be tempered at least somewhat by his newfound and deserved reputation as a dirty player. It is clear he has had more on court success than Washington, but there are two and two thirds seasons to go. So far, we have no evidence of IW pulling any kind of crap that Davison has. In a world that respects virtue, that has to mean something. Intentional low blows have no place in any game, and have to rate up there with the dirtiest of all plays. No excuses and no justifications. It's embarrassing to him, his school, his community and his family, and he needs to issue a public apology.

    Then again, as a troll, you may know all of this and not really care.

    Why is it assumed every athlete should stay in state? Maybe he wanted to get away from his parents? Maybe heís into the drinking culture in Madison? I have no idea.

    Iím from Milwaukee and the last place I had interest was Madison. I wanted to be out of Wisconsin going to a B1G school.

    You just said in the football thread that you're not from here. Weird.

    It was a dirty play and Davison seems like a brat who can't control his emotions, but issue a public apology? Good grief settle down.

    Not likely. This staff had far worse marks on recruits they did take. Davison made a terrible mistake.

    The most annoying part about Davidson is all that it would take to making him be a cheap player is if he would get called for blocking fouls when he commits blocking fouls.

    If he had a foul or two he couldn’t just slide in front of everyone all the time. Too risky.
    Probably over 50% of charges he takes are good calls. But if the 30-40% of the ones he takes that are bad calls were called blocks instead. He can’t even attempt to make that play again.

    Davison made a big mistake. The spotlight, negative attention is going to be on him big time. Just like Grayson Allen.

    He is going to get someone hurt. I can't remember who Wisconsin was playing last year when on the last second other team inbound, Davison surprised the other team by stopping on the baseline and drawing the charge. Last year against Ohio State he was running full speed and stopped suddenly in front of the Ohio State pursuer who ended up on top of Davison. Not normal basketball plays.

    It's not a "mistake" when the guy does this kind of thing over and over. It's the way he plays.

    Maybe he's never been caught hitting someone in the nuts on camera, but last year he blatantly tripped Nate Mason and easily could've cause a serious injury. And the guy throws his body around like he's playing football out there.

    I remember last year when he did that to Mason thinking how long will it before he really hurts someone?

    I called it a terrible mistake and called for a suspension.

    Hat tip for calling for a suspension. Good for you.

    Where we will differ, and I think many on this board as well, is that he made a "mistake." A mistake is an act of passion usually in the heat of the moment. Taking a shot in the nuts at a guy in the open floor goes beyond "mistake" to strategy and an attempt to get away with something. Who even thinks about taking a poke at the family jewels of another player?
