I really hope Brandon is given a second chance, he made a mistake and has owned
up to it. Now he just needs to resolve the matter so he can get back to playing
basketball for the Cougars. I wish him nothing but the best of luck and hope to
see him on the basketball court next season as a byu cougar.
He'd sooner go to Utah State than the U. Not trying to dis on the U, that's
just the truth. It will be interesting to see what happens. Are his actions
grounds for dismissal from the institution?
Take your time brother Davies. Reflect on your experiences gained at BYU. As a
basketball player you have truly grown. You have a potential Pro career. If BB
is all you want to be then BYU isn't your place. However, if you want to be at a
place that will continue to love and help you become a priesthood man and also a
great BB player, stick around and prove to yourself that while imperfect you are
willing to be refined by the adversity that you've faced. Coach Rose will help
you become both.Best wishes no matter what you eventually decide. By
confessing your violation knowing in advance the consequences you are a winner
in my eyes and I'll follow your career as long as I live. Your brother in
Instead of a Hawk for a Mascot the U would be better suited if it changed it to
a Vulture or a Buzzard...I'm a huge BYU fan and a Big Time Brandon
Davies fan.... I am a little conflicted by this whole process... When a 20 year
old man who has demonstrated a lot of class, steps up and takes responsibility
for his actions, and it is not criminal in nature, then I am not sure what
purpose is served by a Season Long Suspension particularly when that action
harms others... (i.e. Emery, Fredette, Rose, the Fan Base, and so on)... The
church has a repentence process and it should run its course so that Brandon can
obtain redemption.... But more than that almost feels like a little too much
piling on... The young man already has a lot of other things that he
and his family are going to have to deal with... I hardly know this kid, but I
am already developing a heck of a lot of respect for the Medal that this kid is
made of.... His parents should be proud.... I'm just a fan and I'm proud of him.
It's understandable why Utah fans would be so desperate to get Brandon and Coach
Rose to help rebuild their smouldering ash heap up on the hill.Sorry, you'll just have to spend another year watching Boylen reduce to
cinders what's left of the Runnin' Utes.Meanwhile, Coach Rose has
another very good team waiting in the wings for next season. Great coaches do
MenaceToSocietyKnowing Brandon personally I know that the last thing
he is looking for is the type of "personal freedom" that you're
espousing.Making a personal commitment to a code of honor isn't
restricting, it's liberating.Besides, Brandon is already taking the
necessary steps to return to playing basketball for BYU, so you're wasting your
time with wishful thinking.
@MenaceToSocietyThat post didn't sound self-righteous at all.
Come up to the U and the Pac 12, Brandon. Students at the U have the personal
freedoms the founding fathers gave us. You will not be forced to sign your
personal freedoms away at the U.
Real Bass, I'm sure Keith Van Horn, Andre Miller, Tom Chambers don't agree with
Hey Bo, two wrongs won't make a right. And going to the u would be all wrong!
I have a lot of respect for Brandon. He stood up and took responsibility. He
did not hide it or try to put it off until the end of the season. That is a
sign of character. Best wishes in everything. I would love it if you stayed a
member of the BYU team, but if that is not in the cards, I will always be
rooting for you.
Brandon, everyone does things they know they shouldn't. Not everyone steps
forward and takes responsibility for what they've done. I, for one, am both sad
and pleased; sad for your choice to violate the Honor Code, pleased you stepped
forward and are accepting the consequences. Here's one Cougar fan hoping you'll
stick around to continue your journey at BYU. You'll be missed BUT you'll be
eagerly and enthusiatically welcomed back. The future, next year, is bright.
@Bo Jangles I hope he does that would be awesome but it would be nice to
see him redeem himself and show the byu community he can bounce back.
Brandon, if the Y doesn't want you the U will embrace you.
