It’s not something we’ll soon forget here at OVC Ball, as it will forever be known as the story that literally broke the site. The video of Sean Woods seemingly ripping into his own player, Devon Atkinson, after Atkinson fouled out against the University of Kentucky.

The story has almost 800,000 views on YouTube alone. Turns out, all that negative publicity may have affected his team somewhat. After that game, and the firestorm that followed, Morehead State lost six of their next eight. Now, Woods is admitting the publicity may have been part of the cause.

“It took me about a month or so to get the team back,” Woods told TV station WLEX in a fairly candid interview. “It was a lesson learned for me.”

“I had to fight for a bit,” Woods added. “I had to fight with the team because even though it wasn’t a big deal with the team at the particular time, and no one knew what I was saying even though my facial expression was making me look like I was some tyrant. It didn’t get bad until the multimedia and stuff like that got into it, and now you have young kids who are buying into it and they are going with it. Are they going with this, or are they going with me.”

I’ll let you read into his comments as you see fit.
