Magic Underwear Hoops Dismissal

Brigham Young University has dismissed Brandon Davies– integral member of their #3 nationally ranked men’s hoops team, avg. 11.1 pts and 6.2 rebounds per game.

Davies committed a grievous offense to warrant such harsh action by BYU. Best player on the team or not, Davies was dismissed due to his failure to “live a chaste and virtuous life” as mandated by the schools honor code. This apparently unchaste sophomore was “caught” having sex with… wait for it… HIS GIRLFRIEND!

BYU coach Dave Rose gave comment:

“Everybody who comes to BYU, every student if they’re an athlete or not an athlete, they make a commitment when they come… a lot of people try to judge if this is right or wrong, but it’s a commitment they make. It’s not about right or wrong. It’s about commitment.”

Davies will meet this week with BYU’s honor board to discuss the possibility of him remaining at the school and/or his relationship with the basketball team going forward.

    My favorite part was how they waited until AFTER they played my Aztecs to dismiss him. Cocksuckers.

      no shit, too bad they didn’t catch him drinking alcohol, smoking a cigarette, or drinking coffee or tea (all violations of the honor code) before the SDSU game

    I’m sure another school that’s not founded on Iron Age superstition will gladly allow him to play basketball and bang whomever he wants.

    How do you get caught having sex by someone who will rat you out and in such a way that you can’t just say “I don’t know what you’re talking about”?
    He’s either boning this girl on the dean’s desk, or it was his roommate’s ex-girlfriend or something. Is there another scenario?

    And for that matter, how do you convince several thousand 18-23 year-old humans to pay to attend a school where they can’t drink, smoke, or bone? That’s some trick.

    Marc,
    I am one of those Neanderthal Mormons that believes that people should wait to have sex until they are married.

    Two points:
    1) The “Magic Underwear” thing is a lame cheap shot that has nothing to do with the substance of your post. You can do what you like, but I would appreciate an apology.
    2) Brandon knew before going to BYU what he was getting into. No one forced him into it. He agreed to live by the rules of the school.

    • Jim Clay says:

      Oops, I see now that it was posted by Vaughn. My bad.

      • Actually, I edited the post and put the “magic underwear” comment in there. So blame the editor, not the author.

        First off, your cult is not “Neanderthal.” That would imply that it has a long-standing history. Since the history of this cult only reaches back as far as the 1800s, to call it Neanderthal would be inaccurate.

        And no, you won’t get “an apology.” I don’t apologize to the Ancient Greeks for being silly enough to think that a Titan held the world on his shoulders. I don’t apologize for mocking any superstition. If you want to believe in a silly cult made up of absurd superstitions, that is your right. And, I would rush to defend you from anyone who wanted to take that right away from you.

        But you don’t get to avoid being mocked.

        Point 2 that you make is well-placed. Yeah, maybe he should have gone elsewhere.

    Personally, I think if you’re too immature to deal with the potential consequences of sex then you shouldn’t be having sex- or try like hell to make sure its as safe as possible- At least he was doing his gf and not some random mormon chick (Im sure the possibilities for a star basketball player in the random hook-up scene are many).

    However, “waiting till marriage” is an outdated custom where parties waited till marriage (usually quite young) and were presumed to be child bearing at, or before, the age of 18. As a member of a generation who doesn’t even contemplate marriage before the age of 27, I believe this custom has rightly fallen by the wayside… and so much more fun
