    Ed Davis Q&A

    Anyone else think that the Q&A session linked on the front page might not be legit? Maybe I'm off on this one, just wondering if that sight is for real.

    I actually think it is real. I was going to put up a thread on it myself as this is a good one to discuss, but had not gotten around to it yet. Thanks for getting it started.

    Still digesting it and not sure how I feel about it at this point. I am interested to see what other DBR folks think about it..

    He's not too shy about using the "n" word on twitter. I bet a lot of coaches lose sleep over twitter.

    twitter and of course, U-STREAM TV...where an athlete can basically do an un-supervised "interview" and none of the coaching staff would ever know about it...

    bet THAT scares some coaches...

    I hope its real, otherwise we have another case of identity theft on our hands.

    And if there's anything Dwight Schrute has taught us (and let's face it, he's taught us many things) its that millions of people suffer from identity theft every year!

    Is it just me or does anyone one else get the feeling that something very strange is going on over at the hump???

    Maybe Ol Roy's reaction is not to just the play on the court...

    Would anyone be surprised if this team imploaded soon??

    Well if they do, they better get over it. Twitter – or Facebook, or whatever else or whatever's next – isn't going anywhere, and trying to police what every student athlete says or does on the Internet is a losing battle. All coaches can do is talk to the players about being responsible and hope they listen, just as any good coach does in regard to any potentially detrimental activity.

    That said, I'm not convinced what Davis is doing is detrimental at all. Sure, maybe some of us would like to see a player interact with people with a little more polish and decorum, but that's just our opinion.

    Coaches have more power than you give them credit for. Embarass the program and you don't play. However, it is only power if you choose to use it and if you are willing to sacrifice a few wins for an opportunity to engage in character building.

    Compared to losing AT HOME to UVA by 15?

    Compared to losing to College of Charleston?

    Compared to losing 4 out 6 this year?

    How do YOU define impload? (No Mr. Doherty, you are not permitted to field this question).

    Despite coming from money, I remember that there were rumblings about his transcript, when he came out of high school.

    I am absolutely appalled and disgusted by how blatantly stupid many young people nowadays sound in their written communication. I see this in my own younger relatives all the time, and it has only been made worse by the interwebz. It honestly breaks my heart to see.

    Had a discussion with the producer for CBS of the first and second rounds of the NCAA tournament last year. We both agreed that e-mail/instant messaging and texting were the death of proper English and proper grammar. Noone uses correct spelling for anything anymore. ("r" for "are"; "u" for "you"). Add into that twitter now and it's all run amok.

    Lots of the Duke players (and recruits) are on Twitter and somehow they all manage to sound more intelligent than David or DrewII. Those guys really aren't doing UNC any favors.
