I work at a University, one of my gay co-workers had to go to BYU last year for University business, he's still scarred by it. Seriously, he talks about it all the time and how crazy it was...over a year later!



I agree with Kati and Mary though. He knew the code of conduct and as ridiculous as normal folks think it is, what do you really expect from a group of people who think the garden of eden was in Missouri someplace and that God lives on a planet called Kolob.

it occurs to me that may be why he 'admitted' to premarital sex. better options elsewhere.

I'm wondering about that too. There were some rumours flying around that maybe he knocked her up.

lol, oh well, I guess he'll have to join another team that doesn't care so much about it's players sexual activities with their partner.

I'll bet there are a bunch of schools salivating at the thought that they may even expel him; I'd love to see him come to MD, since my poor Terps are in desperate need of some talent! I bet the alums would even sponsor the girlfriend to entice him....

Well athletes get away with things all the time and some of them are actual crimes. I kind of think it is noble of the school to give the athlete the same treatment they would have given a non-athlete. I am not religious and if this situation were to occur in a non-religious setting, I'd think the punishment would be absolutely ridiculous. Being that this is a Mormon school, with their own set of codes for conduct, I think they did the right thing.

Kati's right....as stupid as I think this is, he did agree to adhere to their code of conduct when he chose to go to school there. As well, this kid is actually a Mormon himself, who grew up in Utah, so it's not as if he didn't know "the rules" beforehand.

However, I do find it a bit odd that a school named for a known polygamist is so stodgy about premarital sex. Apparently, it is okay to have multiple partners as long as you are "married" to all of them.

I'm not sure how much eligibility Davies has left in the NCAA, but transferring to another school should not be a problem for him; there are plenty of teams who would kill to have him, especially if his only transgression is having sex with his girlfriend!

as much as i think this is ridiculous, BYU is a mormon school. he knew that enrolling i'm sure, and i'm sure they laid out their policies to him. if he couldn;t abide by their expectations than i agree they have the right to dismiss him.

Well, when I went to Bible college for a year, we had to sign a contract stating we wouldn't engage in certain behaviors and that doing so would be grounds for dismissal. So, if he signed something like that and premarital sex was one of the behaviors that was on the contract, then I guess they were justified. If not, then I think it was too severe.

I can't wait until these crazies try to make pre/extra-marital sex illegal again. It's coming...

I suppose if I believed in the same stuff they believed in I'd think it was the right choice. But frankly, their beliefs are an anathema to me and I find their actions abhorrent, immoral, and offensive.

That is stupid. he had sex...so what. Its human nature to do so and no one should be criminalized for something that is basic human instinct.

I'm guessing he was forced to or else some would have outed him. Sometimes people can be hateful.

Why is he admitting to having sex? Isn't that his own personal business between him and his girlfriend. I feel sorry for her having to put up with that.
