Brad Davison Embroiled in Foot-Gate
Brad Davison cannot escape controversy. The Wisconsin Badgers guard always seems to get himself into trouble on the basketball court. It’s not an every game thing, but there are moments in season where Davison puts himself in the shit. Case in point, it looks like from this video below that Davison sticks his foot out while Jordan Murphy, Minnesota’s best player, is going up so when he comes down, Murphy will land on his leg/ankle rendering an injury. Some are saying he slipped while others are screaming bloody murder. Can you guess which universities are saying these things? Let’s dig into the video.

Looking at the tape on first blush last night, I thought to myself would Davison hurt himself doing this? Like if Murphy falls the wrong way, Buzzcut Brad could break his leg, right? Like that’s what I think may happen, so, why would he risk it? but then I look at the video this morning, Davison appears to look at the rim and see the shot not falling then peek his foot on there for Murphy.
It’s a tough pill to swallow for Badgers fans, but the Wisconsin guard has too much of resume to think this isn’t intentional. I’m going with he stuck his foot out. We’ll see if the Big Ten reviews this tape before Wisconsin’s game against Michigan.
