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

Note to any recruit who is not a committed Mormon.  Stay away from BYU.  They apparently take their Code of Conduct very seriously, and if you do not, you may be sacrificing your scholarship and career.  I respect the University's right to establish their code and live by it.  But I wouldn't expect to see BYU atop any sports rankings in the forseeable future.  I can't imagine many non-Mormon athlete willing to take that risk.  I know I sure wouldn't!

"People that ran them out were afraid of losing influence by simple math."

hahaha traumfabrik, really? No, seriously, really? Yeah, I bet all the other religious groups were terrified by the mormons far reaching influence and massive numbers. The Amish became a threat too, thats why they were basically sent off to Pennsylvania. hahahaha The mormons were essentially sent to one part of the country because the rest of the world is far to advanced to deal with their nonsensical belief system.

hahaha Mudville, I think I would rather gouge my eyes out and slowly give myself a thousand paper cuts than ever go to that school...or city for that matter. Why the hell would ANYONE want to go there?! Haha you get kicked out of school for having a Mountain Dew in your dorm room, but go ahead and marry as many women as possible. You have to wonder how this even sounds logical to them? I mean, has anyone ever made them actually record their beliefs and play it back for them so they can see how stupid it sounds?? The only mistake this poor kid made was going to school at such a ridiculous place. Even god would laugh at these morons.

The Mormons started in New York state were kicked out there, went to Ohio kicked out there, then Missouri kicked out there. What does that tell you about what poeple thought of them?

Hey BlueHen,

That is an incredibly bigoted statement.  Just because a people were discriminated against and had their basic human rights violated, doesn't mean they're bad.  That's equivalent to blaming the victim for being victimized.  The crimes were severe, too, ranging from rape to fact, it was legal in Missouri to kill a Mormon until the early nineties.  Seems more like a black spot on our country's history than on Mormonism.  If you'd actually studied history, you'd find that the main reason they were run out of so many places is that they brought a tremendous influx of population from European immigrants.  Doing so brought a sharp shift in political power in a country that decides things by elections.  People that ran them out were afraid of losing influence by simple math.  Imagine how the people in a conservative state like Alabama would react if suddenly millions of Democrats moved in and set up the second-largest city in the state.

I can't help it this is so stupid. First of all, someone must be a rat unless he went around bragging about it. Secondly, they might as well have an honor code that says you can do it just don't tell nobody. lol. Mormonism is something I will never understand, although I do like that for the most part they stick to their guns and don't allow themselves to be moderated. He went into the gauntlet knowing what he had to face. I would never even consider going to a place like that. Young people, your values will most likely change from the ages of 18 to 22. Don't pick a place that will punish you for that. I can't get mad at the school for doing what they did because he knew that from the start and so he had kind of a social contract with BYU, but I just hope recruits see this and look elsewhere when they make their college decision. I do have to say in a lighthearted way that after seeing Jimmer Fredette and how good he is, I'm thinking about cutting out the caffeine Wink.

Good thing he didn't join another church.  Then he'd never be allowed back.

Look it up.

"Removal of one's name from Church records or formally joining another church will result in the withdrawal of the ecclesiastical endorsement that is essential for a student to remain enrolled."

Guess what? Go back and look at the founder or namesake of BYU. The man was a womanizer. Bring um old, bring um middle age  or bring um Young. That was his motto. The University is out of bounds inforcing the honor code (right the honor code) . Please they should examine their roots and maybe they give this kid a break.

His lowlife snitch of a roommate turned him in. I hope he gets his ass kicked by BYU fans. And I'm an Aztec fan for life.

What a Church!!  The founders were a bunch of polygamist Potheads who liked to f**k their 10 year old daughters.

For those thinking about flaming back, let me educate you.  The Mormons were farmers.  Their cash crop was marijuana.  At the time fully legal and the 3rd largest agricultural crop in the USA.  Joseph Smith got his inspiration smoking Pot.  Northern Utah has a perfect climate for growing Pot. That's why the moved there after extreme political pressure forced them out of New York and later Missouri. That's a fact.  I don't know how big a harem JS had but Brigham Young had 26 wives,  half of them his daughters.  He was doing them at age 10. That's a fact. All this stuff is in the Church records including BY's personal diary where he details what he did to those girls.  So explict, copies can't be published because it's not only embarrasing to JCLDS but would also be classed as kiddie porn.  Of course they were "married" so that makes it OK.  Davies should have gotten a quickie marriage in Vegas, banged her, and got the annulment the next morning. Then, he'd still be playing.

I hope BYU goes out of the tournament in the first round.  Seed them so they play Friday-Sunday.  If they make it to the second game, they'll have to forfiet.  The Church doesn't allow BBall to be played on Sunday.
