It's more than pretty pathetic. It's one thing when recordings like this get leaked because, for example, it's the only way someone is going to be held accountable for some type of crime or horrendous behavior. But this sounds a lot more like "things didn't work out the way I/we wanted, so let's burn some things down on the way out."Can't imagine much worse of a look for the Gard administration. Also I think it's pretty pathetic for one of those involved to record those conversations and send it to the media.
I would shake something like this off a little more if Kobe King didn't cite similar reasons publicly when he left. Surprised Davison came back given this, but who knows.
But I thought it was our coach that we pretended had relationship-building problems...
I remember listening to that Tay and Piper podcast several months back, where they interviewed Podz' AAU coach there. Think it was shortly after Podz' committed or signed his LOI. But his AAU coach had glowing reviews of BU and the Illini BB program. The UW BB program however? Um yeah, not so much. He's not a fan of their program AT ALL!No wonder Podz didn't want to go to UW.
Wowsa. That was an insane read.
That seems like the kind of thing a disgruntled ex-colleague (cough cough) would do, not an ex-player. I'm not sure why you'd toss a match on a program you've been away from for several months when you're recorded voicing that you want things to be better for the next crop of players + one of your own in that meeting is coming back, unless you think that this is the only way to accountability. Granted, I'm not sure why an AC would have the foresight to record that session, unless they also knew what was coming.
I'm a little conflicted saying this, but Davidson comes across as a very empathetic, compassionate young man.
