Shock, dismay, crash.

But when you sign your name and claim to live a code, as one who donates to the University, I expect it to be lived. And no amount of success will ever compensate for a person's violation of their word.

And while this certainly hurts BYU's chances in the NCAA, Brandon knows better.

I love you Brandon, above all things BYU, I love ya son.

Oh no! Not certain that anyone can replace Brandon. There go our dreams of a run to the Final Four.

So sorry for Brandon and for the team

Bountiful, UT

As they say, "Timing is everything."

Springville, UT


This just shows you that the university views the rules and regulations as more important than a better chance at making a deep run in the NCAA Tournament.

I hope Davies gets this all cleared up so he can play next year.

Go Cougars!

Ughh. I can't believe this. The best season in the history of BYU basketball just took a huge hit. Sad. Sad. Sad.

Players stepped up when Chris Collinsworth went down for the season. Hopefully they can do it again now.

It's a shame that Davies put himself in this position, but every BYU student knows exactly what they sign up for.

Kudos to the school for showing that the Honor Code is more than just a piece of paper, even when it may impact the success of its athletic teams.

Hang in there Brandon, the Y is a great place to get an education...look forward to seeing you play next year.

Provo, Utah

Unbelievable. How disappointing.

North Salt Lake, UT

Uh oh and bummer for TDS. Glad to see only worthy comments. Stay classy here Ute fans.

West Valley City, Utah

No one can say that BYU's honor code has a double standard for athletes. It is a difficult price to pay for the integrity of the university.Hopefully, we will see Brandon next year.

West Jordan, UT

There goes the dream season. BYU will be lucky to make it out of the first weekend of the NCAA tournament without their starting center and only low post scoring threat.

Kaysville, UT

I hope the best for Brandon but I feel worse for the team he's leaving. Big-time-let-down to his teammates and coaches who need his talents for a deep tournament run.

Humble, TX

And so it begins ...

Ogden, UT

what a blow!!!! Brandon hope all can be resolved so that you can come back next year.

Spanish Fork, UT

Disaster for the team, but lets pray it is not disaster for the young man. Our prayers are with you Brandon. Hope you get it fixed. -kk

Hopefully Brandon can shake off whatever it is and be with the team next season and stay in school. He's a good player and seems like a good kid. These guys have to remember, particularly now with so much at stake: Don't touch the apple!!

Salt Lake City, UT

It's over...any hope of a Final 4 is over. Unbelievable....

Orem, UT

Brandon, oh, Brandon, this is so sad!

This is a tough lesson to learn, but I hope you get your life back in order and learn from this experience. You know better than this.

Contact Tui. He'll be there for you!


As far as BYU is concerned, this isn't the end of the world, but it's certainly going to make things that much more challenging for Rose and Jimmer and the rest of the Cougars.
