BYU’s Brandon Davies Broke Honor Code By Getting Girlfriend Pregnant

First thing you need to know is the BYU Honor Code system SUCKS:

Be honest
Live a chaste and virtuous life
Obey the law and all campus policies
Use clean language
Respect others
Abstain from alcoholic beverages, tobacco, tea, coffee, and substance abuse
Participate regularly in church services
Observe the Dress and Grooming Standards
Encourage others in their commitment to comply with the Honor Code

Students must abstain from the use of alcohol, tobacco, and illegal substances and from the intentional misuse or abuse of any substance. Sexual misconduct; obscene or indecent conduct or expressions; disorderly or disruptive conduct; participation in gambling activities; involvement with pornographic, erotic, indecent, or offensive material; and any other conduct or action inconsistent with the principles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the Honor Code is not permitted.

What does this University think is the point of going to college is?

To get an education?

What in the blue hell is wrong with them?

But if you are a student and decide to go to BYU, you have to abide by the rules and Brandon Davies, decided he wanted to break the Honor Code and it got him suspended for the year.

Today, 1280 The Zone in Salt Lake City is reporting that Davies’ girlfriend is pregnant with his child. The honor code does not allow sexual relationships unless you are married, among a hefty list of other rules.

Davies is averaging 11.1 points per game and a team-high 6.2 rebounds, and not having him available for the NCAA tournament will be a major issue for Mr. Fredette and the Cougars.

Forget the Honor Code, Davies broke the “Man Code” and #1 Nohology commandment:

“An $8 box of condoms is better than 25% of your gross income over 18 years”

BYU has confirmed that Davies didn’t do anything criminal (unless you consider not buying a box of Trojans a crime).

Davies made a mistake. That mistake has cost him, his team and his girlfriend. If BYU was truly religious they would be helping him, not pushing him away, but the Honor Code is more important right?

  • If this was Jimmer it would have been swept under the rug

  • The thing is, he's black. But he's also LDS and was raised by an adopted mother in Utah from 4 days old. He grew up in Provo, for goodness sakes. So he's no different than any of the kids there. I do think it's sketchy that two minority kids — first Harvey Unga — and now Davies get suspended for the same thing in the same school year. But in both cases, you've got guys who are dating other student-athletes. The dudes on the team that are married are married to girls who are probably sitting at home or cheering them on.

    I guess they didn't want to get married yet, but what 19 year old does?

  • Wait, wait, wait, wait … So BYU is only *pretending* to be religious because they have consequences for specific actions taken? Let me ask you then … what was your stand on the whole Michael Vick dog-fighting scandal? Should he have been let off the hook scot free? Just because someone has made a mistake doesn't mean the consequences should be waived. ReDICulous that you should even imply that his breaking the rules at an institution he *chose* to attend is no big deal. And let me guess … you think the BYU honor code "sucks" because you're one of those guys who gets wasted every night, strikes out with the ladies or ends up sleeping with a drag queen, and doesn't remember any of it the morning after? You're right. That's WAY better than deciding to live by a code of conduct. You sound like a real winner.

    • I rarely drink. I have this thing called a moral code, don't need anyone to tell me.

      Michael Vick broke a law and went to jail. Punishment didn't fit the crime, but still a law. Davies broke a code, but punishment didn't fit the crime.
