Coffee, Tea or Sex? Not!

According to the Brigham Young University (BYU) Honor code...none of the above!   Just ask Brandon Davies, a star basketball player.   He opted to break the rules on the latter (premarital sex with his girlfriend) and was kicked off the team!

The team looked like a title contender.   BYU is ranked third in the country, and Davies, who averages 11.1 points and 6.2 rebounds, is a key player;   in their first game without him, the Cougars were trounced by the University of New Mexico, 82-64.

According to the BYU coach..."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."

In case you're interested here are the key points of the BYU Honor code:
  • 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
So all you Starbuckers, Dunkin' Donut Divas, Earl Grey Tea Lovers and potential BYU Sex Offenders...need not apply!
