Congratulations Brandon. Good to see you back.

Surfers Paradise, AU

Isnt the team in europe? It's great that he can come back and play this season. Welcome back...this could be another special season.



Don't you think that it would have been more advantageous to BYU to sweep the whole situation under the rug right before the tournament? If BYU were to sweep it under the rug, it would have been at that time and not now (as you are suggesting). Have a good one Bro.

iron momo is Japanese. Iron means an objection, to be against. Momo is a peach. So are you saying you are an objecting peach or an objectional peach?

Observe and watch this man closely and you will learn what character is...it is in actions not words.

I don't know many young men that have the character of Brandon Davies. His mistakes were broadcast by the media to the world and he stuck it at. He is a great example of doing the right thing in spite of the public humiliation that he was put through. I'm glad all of my mistakes aren't broadcast to the world.

Now onto basketball! Let's hope Collinsworth can recuperate fully from his injury. What a front line we will have with Collinsworth, Hartsock and Davies.
On the wing, we'll have Abouo and Rogers. And the back court will feature Harrison, Carlino, Winder and Zylstra. Zylstra's 17 ppg average in Greece was a pleasant surprise.

This team is set for success! Brandon will have 15 - 20 double, doubles during the season. The front line will dominate the headlines early in the season, but the young back court will improve with every game and be a force to be reckoned with in February and March.

And best of all . . . I get to watch a bunch of their games in HD on ESPN.

Excellent News! Welcome Back Davies!

We are all very proud of you Brandon.

Very good SLCWatch!

Welcome back Brandon. You have shown tremendous courage, integrity and resolve during a difficult time that very few of us can even begin to comprehend. Your basketball career will come and go, but the lessons you have learned (and taught) will stay with you (and us) for a long, long time.

Good luck and go Cougars!

Jazzer, just google his name and you will find out.

Augusta, GA

The men's basketball team has been playing and practicing without him as they have been playing overseas in Greece a few weeks ago. If he was ready to join the team then he would have gone with them. But the fact that he didn't shows that he had not taken care of everything. At any rate, the past is behind him...he needs to learn from it and look towards the future.

Way to go Brandon. I am glad to have you back.

Bountiful, UT

I'm glad Brandon was given a second chance. Does everyone get one?
