I like checking out opposing team blogs and forums when we're about to play them to see what they're saying. This morning, I went over to the Wisconsin SBNation blog and their 247 board to find that they are in complete denial regarding Brad Davison and the responses are pretty funny.
I have put some of the best ones below. I hope we kick their ass Saturday and that POS Davison has a terrible game.
"Am I crazy to think you can’t be 100% sure Davidson was trying to trip there?
I’ve watched the slow-mo like 30 times and I think when you slow anything down you can make it look worse. What confuses me is that he was looking up at the ball when he did it, who’s to say he wasn’t trying to reset his feet? Or that he was starting to move forward to get the rebound, but then stopped immediately when he realized he wasn’t going to get it, so only his foot went forward?"
"Not crazy at all, what's crazy is buying into this narrative from bitter opponents. He landed with his leg out, off balance, tried to maintain position. Like you said, you could slow down 100 instances throughout the game and call them dirty, if that's your agenda."
"I wouldn’t call it intentional. In slow motion, you can make a lot look bad that really isn’t. In real time, getting his footing and trying to avoid contact. Grayson Allen was a legit bitch"
"Davison isn’t even looking at Murphy, he’s finding the ball and regaining his balance. Doesn’t even touch Murphy but yeah sure, put it in slow motion and get enough salty gopher fans and pundits who have had an agenda against Davison ever since the 4 charge NC State game whining about it and you can almost manufacture a dirty play controversy. Also, every guard ever tries to create contact at the rim, it's hardly a Davison signature."
"During the course of the game, I saw a number of players, on both sides, push, shove, undercut on plays that were not called. Some of them should have been, most weren’t. Put them in slow motion, and we can bitch about dirty players from people just playing basketball."
"There’s all kinds of contact throughout the game that someone could call "dirty" if they wanted to. He landed with his foot out, tried to maintain position. That’s it. Silly sore-loser stuff."
And my own personal favorite comment just due to the irony...
"I said that about Murphy the last game. For a guy as big and strong as he is, he sure hits the ground a lot. Man, a stiff breeze could blow him over."
