I think davis was a good coach, and that was it. He screwed everything else up so badly that his coaching couldn't overcome it all.

MY OPINION: Mike Davis went to the AD and said "This is what BBHC Calipary is doing in Memphis and if we meet his competition, we can have several top players next year". That meant giving Cousins and others that "out" to their NLOI.

When the UAB administration decided not to "meet the competition", the players moved on to Memphis and from there - with Calipary - on to UKY. Perhaps if correct, Davis might have moved on to another school, but we can never know for sure. Many certainly complained that he stayed too long as it was.

RE: UAB selected as part of the 2018 Advocare Classic
This season's team is quite a bit more fleet footed as compared to many other teams in the past.
It just seems that Ehsan is reluctant to cut em' loose. Two of the past three games the team has registered ZERO fast break points. Whats up with that? He has players this year who can be down the court in three or four dribbles, every last one of them, even the tall ones. Why are they just working the ball past half court? That's boring and they are losing.

It wasn't known that Calipari (its spelled Calipari) was doing that, until after the fact. It's more likely that after Cousins decommitted from UAB, he made it a stipulation with Calipari to sign with Memphis and Calipari agreed. There is no evidence that Calipari did it with any other player.

Thinking back about the out letter Cousins supposedly wanted, what exactly was the big downside for UAB in that deal? If Davis uses it to shop them both to another school, we still get the buyout and find another coach. If he doesn't then he probably brings Eric Bledsoe with him. A medium risk for UAB with possible huge upside.

Maybe it was a rules issue. Don't remember it that way but it's possible.

The way people here hate mike Davis, you'd think they'd have wanted him to be allowed to make that stipulation he wanted in his LOI

UAB thought it might be a rules violation and also realized that Davis did not have UAB's best interest at heart. He was using the stipulation and Cousins to get another job. There was no chance that Cousins was going to play here. UAB wasn't going to be played the fool. At that point, they were not looking to get rid of Davis, but this episode was the beginning of the end.

The NCAA did eventually rule it was illegal.

Also, Mike Davis with Demarcus Cousins would have had UAB in deep NCAA violations territory. Kentucky and Calipari got away with a lot with Cousins because it was Kentucky. UAB would not have.
