Report: BYU suspended Davies for premarital sex

Posted on: March 3, 2011 7:14 am
 
Brandon Davies was suspended from BYU's basketball team for the remainder of the season because he violated the part of the school's honor code provision that prohibits premarital sex, according to a report in The Salt Lake Tribune.

The paper reported that Davies acknowledged the violation to BYU officials Monday.

BYU announced Davies' suspension on Tuesday.

"Everyone makes mistakes in their life," said BYU's Charles Abouo. "We are reaching out and trying to help him get through this."

Davies was averaging 11.1 points and a team-leading 6.2 rebounds. The No. 3 Cougars lost 82-64 Wednesday night to New Mexico in their first game without Davies. They close the regular season Saturday against Wyoming.

Report: BYU suspended Davies for premarital sex

Unless the girl said they had sex, they got caught having sex, or she's pregnant, how would they know?

Their rules are their rules

I'm glad to see a school actually punish a high profile athlete on their own.  Just because you aren't of their faith, you shouldn't be mocking it, or their rules - and by the way, I don't care what 95% of people do or not.

I would be willing to bet there is tiger blood dripping from Davies' fangs right now.  Who could blame him.  Gets laid then gets kicked off the team.  It's about winning?

Anybody care to bet that his girlfriend is a blond hair blue eyed mormon girl?  Guarantee if she was a hoodrat from Compton there would be no suspension.  What year is this anyway, 1911!

Report: BYU suspended Davies for premarital sex

It's a Mormon religious institution, so the players are required to adhere to their honor code.  From the New York Times:

"There are precise guidelines regarding grooming, clothing, chastity and language. There are restrictions against the use of tobacco, alcohol, tea and coffee. There are precise visitation rules for resident halls and off-campus housing. (“The use of the bathroom areas by members of the opposite sex is not appropriate unless emergency or civility dictates otherwise, and then only if the safety, privacy, and sensitivity of other residents are not jeopardized,” reads the off-campus housing policy.) Gambling and “involvement with pornographic, erotic, indecent, or offensive material” are forbidden."

They aren't forcing you or me to adhere to it, so get over yourself.

I say good for BYU no matter what the cost. Stick to the Honor Code and make exceptions for no one! The students at BYU are totally aware of the rules and all sign an Honor Code Agreement. Davies knew this before stepping on campus...

His Choice.

HAHAHAHA

Well needless to say, that is pathetic BYU. Simply pathetic. Didn't brak the law, didn't get arrested, didn't beatup a girlfriend. He just had some sex. Gee wiz I bet he's not the first.

TRANSFER KID!
