Where is the "Honor Code" in all of this???????? Good news Davies, you'll get a break from the publicity (maybe for one day).

Orem, UT

It is good to see the BYU baseball team have a little fight. Them New Mexico boys can't just keep their mouths shut. I'm ok with this.

Greenfield, IN

Great missionary work Cougies!

Alexandria, VA

Sounds like they were disciplined. What do you want?

Evanston, WY

Even though it was embarassing to see what happened on the field, won't hurt the team much since those effected are not starters AND the fact that the team will not advance beyond the MWC tourney. I see the only one on the hot seat for now with the school is V. Law. Reminds me of the days of Crowton where some on the team affected the program....and we see where that got him. The baseball program has really never been a top program in the nation (or the WAC or MWC) and probably never will against those teams who have their home plates in sunny climates. Recruiting is difficult I am sure for one who is setting his sights on a professional career. Just sayin'....

News flash: this happens in sports. Quite a bit actually. There. Now we can move on with our lives.

Draper, UT

OlpuebloguyInWyo - Ryan Beranl is a started and one of the top players for BYU. Ryan missing three games will hurt. Bernal is known to run his mouth. I think he threw the first cheap shot punch. I think he needs to be reprimanded.

DEW Cougars
Sandy, UT

Vance Law has not gotten to where BYU needs to be. Maybe it is time to see a change because WCC will be tough.

Bountiful, UT

Those New Mexicans started this. There is now way us byu players would have started it.

Whoa Nellie
American Fork, UT

Wow, a reprimand from the MWC. How serious could that be? UNM athletics = MWC competence. Consider the source.

Highland, UT

Frankly I like baseball brawls. Lotsa fun. Glad to see the Cougars have a little fight in them. I'm sure ernest's utes would have just let those "new mexicans" beat them down. Not much fight in those gals.

Surfers Paradise, AU

First Elizabeth Lambert, now this. Must be in the water at UNM.

Interesting comments considering we have a pretty good lead on BYU in the conference race right now.

South Weber, UT

The honor code clearly states, " Respect others ". Supporting and encouraging a brawl is outside the limits of sportsmanship.

Cali Coug
Visalia, CA

Way to go Diamond Cougs...kicked their tail both on and off the field.

Draper, UT

It's too bad that Bernal was suspended. He is hitting the ball great this year. If it could of been Caldwell or another player who is struggling, that would have been better.

Salt Lake City, UT

Hey Vance, that's the way to keep it classy. It's one thing having a bunch of 20 year old kids brawl on the field, but the Coach? Nice example.

Springville, UT

And like we need 'little brother' fans to point out the 'foibles of youth'... (church lady) "Well isn't that special".

Maybe there's hope for some of you Ute trolls. If by reading these stories about shortcomings in human character and you comprehend as such, just maybe you'll identify & find character for yourself? Nah, I didn't think so.

Springville, UT

I heard from a source that part of the reason this brawl occurred in the first place is because the UNM players were chattering a lot. One of them said something similar to what the Italian player, Materazzi, said to Zidane in the World Cup back in 2006.

Keep it classy, New Mexico.

Saint George, UT

Suspended for three games.

The next three MWC games?

The next three scheduled games?
