BYU basketball: The sports world continues to discuss the ramifications of Brandon Davies being suspended from the BYU basketball team, and LDS bloggers have also weighed in. “BYU Will Regroup and Rebound” promises the Deep Shades of Blue blogger: “The Cougars may no longer be the favorites to win the MWC tourney or to make deep run at the Big Dance, but they will come back, play harder, play better and with more confidence. Any team that has Jimmer Fredette on it will have to be taken seriously. Will Cougars fans step up and gut it up as well? Will they still show up and fill the Marriott Center on Saturday and show up in droves to support their team in Las Vegas? This team and these players deserve such.”

And this Mormon Woman explains that “I didn’t choose to go to BYU for its sports programs. I didn’t choose to go to BYU for its academic chops. I didn’t choose to go to BYU for its low tuition and housing rates. Nope, I chose to go to BYU because of the Honor Code.” Click to read both supportive essays!
