My apologies, I said Donahue was 24, she is 25.Whether she is limited or not, the issue of "telling it like it is" here from Cook?
In one thread he is praised for being above it all, the next he is praised for dumping it out there and his stark honesty.
I would think most athletes, would find it hard to continue with a coach who has clearly told them what the ceiling of upside is or is not.
Does not mean he is not 100% right, just that I think most would look another direction, espeicially, when they were still improving and worked hard.
Cook has said a lot of things like this to the Donahue camp over time I am sure.It was not this one incident that he takes and makes it that way.
