Interesting wording "even the DK supporters asked"...goes right back to what Eli said earlier, call it a conspiracy theory all you want. Your angle is clear here...the only question is; if we do get the transparency here if the Brown supporters and people who never wanted Brown gone will continue to dig and dig and dig to undermine DK because the think they are getting to Benson that way. As if DK is responsible for 10 years of Bensons disastrous leadership. And I do mean continue, it started from day one and calls into question if these folks like you are UA supporters or Browns personal fan club to the detriment of the program. The only litmus test if a coach should continue at UA should be 1) is he running a clean program and kids doing well in school 2) is he winning. Regardless if he is your BFF or not...if either one of these is missing, the school should make a change. That was done with the MBB program. Regardless of all the personality issues, there was a ton of losing and program got stale which gave Benson an opening to settle other scores. It's strange how many people chose to overlook the on court performance and were in favor of status quo as the program faltered all because of personal friendships. Just so we are absolutely crystal clear, it is my opinion that the personal relationship of some "insiders" here is with the old coach and his entire extended family has warped their views of the MBB program. I'm sure if the guy went winless for 5 years you'd still keep him and thus regardless of how well DK does it will always grate on you. There is a subset of people here, so called "insiders" who are praying for DK to fail because they think they are getting to Benson that way instead of cheering the program on. You know how I know this...take for instance your comments, Brown's dad on twitter and others...when the going was rough early on in the season and they couldn't buy a win, there was a certain level of gloating about "grass isn't always greener", Browns dad on twitter spouting off. After some wins started coming and they won at BC...crickets! Make of that what you will but don't lecture people here like you're just pulling for the program and want what's best for it. I've bit my tongue for a while on this but the hypocrisy is astounding and no one should believe it for a minute.
As for me, I will continue to ask for transparency because I think IF a legitimate investigation took place and IF DK was cleared, the school owes him, the fans, recruits etc. an explanation as like it or not his reputation has been tarnished. IF they continue to hide everything about what transpired and do not offer any transparency into what happened, what the investigation uncovered and why they reached the decision they did, it will leave a black cloud over the program.
Furthermore, I detest what Benson has done with this program, there should be a separate investigation into his handling of this.
I want to say again unequivocally. IF DK hit a kid with with any malice and it was not purely accidental, he needs to be replaced as much as I like him. I'm a fan of the program and not any one individual, striking, pushing a kid etc. with intent is never OK.
Few people know the situation around another allegation on Bensons watch that led to a dismissal of an assistant coach. No transparency was demanded then...even if it was a sham. That got quietly swept under the rug...even if I think it was BS. Where were the demands for transparency with the old coaching regime? I mean, shine a light on all of it...right? Ahh...that's right because that coming to light would have painted the old HC, fair or not in a negative ligh...so we didn't get any calls for transparency.
