Brigham Young University’s forward, Brandon Davies was relieved of his duties for the BYU team this week. He was kicked off the team because he violated the Mormon school’s strict honor code. Team members are to “[a]bstain from alcoholic beverages, tobacco, tea, coffee and substance abuse” and “[u]se clean language,” BYU students are expected to “live a chaste life.”
But Brandon Davis didn’t adhere to those rule, he had sexual relations with his girlfriend. And now there may be more to the story….it may not be just a case of having premarital sex. He may have gotten his girlfriend pregnant. This wasn’t something that they would not be able to hide or sweep under the rug, this was something that people would, well, notice. Is that why he was kicked off the team? Had it just been a case of hanky panky, would he have stayed on the team?
