    Meanwhile, BYU is down big at home against New Mexico.

    Adios, 1 seed.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    I heard on Mike and Mike this morning that it was "relations with his girlfriend" that got him booted. Someone must have had a serious grudge against Davies or his girlfriend to report this.

    I may share more in detail on this later (kinda pressed for time right now), but a lot of these colleges have "spies" throughout the community that nark on the students anytime they are doing something wrong. One Christian college I know in Florida is so extensive with their rules its not even funny.

    Regardless of how silly this honor code might be, it's incredibly refreshing for a college coach and a university to stand up for the values they believe in when they know it's going to cost them big time on the court...

    OSU, Tressel, yea I'm looking at you...

    Well does "relations" with a girlfriend constitute something major?

    For Mormons? Yeah, I would think so.

    Re: BYU dismisses key player for "not following honor code"

    I read a tweet this morning by a former Ohio State basketball player who came to the embarassing realization upon reading the BYU honor code that he had complied with it during his college career.

    (He called himself "lame" for following it... not me. )

    Yep. Although from what I have heard lately, they have been getting pretty lax with the rules. A steep dropoff in enrollment and running off two campus church pastors will do that.

    I actually at one point in time seriously considered attending there. It's a beautiful campus and in a pretty nice location (Gulf of Mexico). After researching it and going down there, I can honestly say that unless you are actually called to go there for ministry, I would not recommend it to anyone.

    I realize this is a slight departure from the original topic, but there are some correlations. Check out this website from the Student Voice for more information on the "rules"

    http://www.pensacolachristiancollege.com/rules.htm

    The correlation is that like BYU, you make the choice to go there, although there are a lot of instances in PCC's case that I disagree with this, and I am sure there are other cases similar at BYU. Brandon Davies knew the rules but had scholarship offers to other colleges where this wouldn't have been an issue (Arizona, UC-Berkley).

    The problem I see in the case of religious colleges is that the parents play a huge role in the children attending there. For example, a Mormon family in Utah telling their children that BYU is the only college we will pay for and the child relents, so do they really "make the decision"? Those are the ones who have no respect for the rules and typically do not last.

    The coach and university didn't decide that. The NCAA handed down the suspensions, not the university.

    I thought Tressel strongarming the players into returning for their senior season before the bowl game was a bit much though.

    Like others have said, I have no clue why anyone who isn't devoutly LDS would want to go there, even for sports.... especially if you're non-white. It's a very judgmental "holier-than-thou" atmosphere there and few non-Mormons have positive experiences attending.
