RE: Tara Davis transfers from Georgia
Tara Davis seems like a lovely young lady and a very talented athlete with a potentially bright future ahead of her.
I remember her single-handedly bring Agoura HS to 2nd place at the CA state championship her senior year!
This is a transfer with many repercussions throughout the NCAA T&F Championship landscape.
Georgia has a very high probability of winning the national title with her.
Texas will have a far greater shot at chasing a title with her.
When coaches are recruiting for next year's team, they chart out their budget in recruiting, who they are looking at, and who they will aggressively go after.
I'm sure had Petros known prior that Davis would leave, him and his staff would aggressively recruit to fill her positions.
At the end of the day, she did this too late and went about it the wrong way.
It is a tough but necessary lesson for her to learn.
If she is transferring because she is unhappy, she must learn again that to get where she wants to be then she must sacrifice some more temporary happiness (in this case: sitting a year).
Making moves this public will potentially hurt future sponsors from investing into her and she can definitely expect her future pro contracts to have extra clauses in there to deter her from speaking negatively about her sponsors, sponsor-affiliated coaches, sponsor-affiliated athletes, etc.
It is a business. Yes, the NCAA athletes don't get paid but it is what it is.
