What's The Point of Playing College Basketball at BYU?

BYU forward Brandon Davies was kicked off the team for a violation of the school's honor code.
Davies's transgression: he had sex with his girlfriend.
In addition to turning the entire campus into a champagne room, students are also told to be honest, so he had an attack of conscience and admitted to his intercourse.
Not only did the selfish prick fuck his girlfriend, he fucked Jimmer Fredette too. Without Davies, the team's leading rebounder, the Cougars lost to New Mexico, one game after beating San Diego State for the second time this year.
Next year Davies will likely transfer to another school (Arizona State?) where he can get all the pussy he wants and not feel badly about it in the morning.
But you mean to tell me Jimmer Fredette is scoring 40 points and not scoring after the games?
I don't believe that for a second, I just think he does it without the pangs of guilt.

good job asshole, your dick just cost us a chance at the national title

I'm surely in the minority here, but I actually respect BYU for taking its code seriously and enforcing it regardless of the basketball consequences. It doesn't seem like an especially fun place to go to school (no caffeine either, what the hell?), but they're not hypocrites.

Just find it refreshing because I see so much of the opposite, with schools like UConn and Kentucky having a very different set of rules for their hoops stars.

Agree 100%. Auburn bent over backwards to make sure Cam Newton was eligible despite what he may have done/known etc. I have a ton of respect for BYU for putting their values above the sport. Was just curious if the GF got punished too.

Mr. Gierasch: Be seated, gentlemen. It appears that someone in this class cheated on yesterday's history exam. Today is Saturday. Your next class is on Monday. Therefore, we are faced with a rather bleak situation. If the guilty party does not come forward, or is not identified by then, I shall be forced to fail the entire section.
Chris Reese: Isn't that unfair, sir? Only one of us cheated.
Mr. Gierasch: We have all been dishonored by this person and I will not tolerate it.
David Green: How can you be sure that someone cheated, sir?
Mr. Gierasch: I would prefer to keep the evidence to myself for the time being.
Rip Van Kelt: Can't you just throw out the old test and give us a new one?
Mr. Gierasch: And pretend that no one cheated? But someone did cheat. Whoever did this has robbed you of your honor. If I ignore it, he will have robbed me of mine as well. I leave it in your hands, gentlemen.

It goes without saying that BYU did the right thing by enforcing its honor code.

And Davies knew the rule, knew the punishment and committed the infraction anyway. Therefore he deserved what he got. For more, see my take on Pete Rose.

Not sure about the girlfriend, because she is not an athlete (I don't think) she can't be kicked off a team. Davies wasn't kicked out of school, so likely neither was she. I'm sure she faces some punishment, but not as severe as Davies. It seems the University didn't want Davies to represent it in intercollegiate athletics.
