Ute fan here,

Hate to see a player get suspended, hate to see kids make costly mistakes. Hopefully he learns and grows from this experience.

This is a huge blow to BYU's D, as he was the perfect compliment to KVN, allowing the later to make big plays.

Bad timing; I wonder what the heck he did? Grow a beard, drink a Pepsi or french kiss a coed? The possibilities are endless.

What the heck!
Right before the big game?
It's de ja vu all over again.

Spokane,

I heard it was a Mountain Dew, not a Pepsi.

His career is OVER!

Sooooooooooooo frustrating. What a let down. At least we've got some experienced talent behind him. Should still be a stout front.

And Chris B, 3 comments in 2 minutes?? Get a job and a life.

Difficult news for Spencer.

Wishing him success in dealing with whatever problem he's having.

Trust christy to display her true character, or lack thereof, once again.

Chris B.
Are you a Utah player who spends their time trolling the BYU articles in a BYU oriented paper?
I thought you said "we're just better than you."

If I am mistaken, and you aren't on the team, why do try to speak yourself onto the roster?
I will never be convinced that Utah has taken the "big brother" role until the Utah followers move on from BYU-centric everything. What are your thoughts, bro?

You're real class Chris B. I'm sure the Ute faithful are really proud of you.

Fortunately BYU has a lot of depth there. We'll be ok.

Very disappointing news!

Let's not tease the kid. Remember these are just college kids, but they should be held responsible for breaking the rules. Unfortunate that he made a mistake.

One player isn't the team. BYU's defense is stout. They will pick up the pieces and still play one heckuva game.

Chris, tone it down, this is a young man's life that is impacted here. Have a little civility.

As for Hadley, get it straight and do what you need to do. God Speed.

Go UTES!!

Hope Hadley sets things right and gets back on the field ASAP. The Cougars need him.

Thanks Chris B. for keeping it classy. Ouch! Bit the tongue in my cheek. (3 of first 7 posts)

So which is it...the game is easier for the U with Hadley out...or don't use it as an excuse?

You seem a bit confused.

And as always, GO COUGARS!

@CougfaninTexas

All kidding aside, I totally agree. It's a bummer. He's really let the team and the program down. I'm really curious as to what happened? It must have been something fairly severe....at least I would think so. Unfortunate.

Utah fan here. I hope no one is taking Chris B and his ridiculous comments seriously. I've been going to Utah games my whole life and I don't know any other fans like him. He does not represent us.

I know Hadley well. He is a great guy and not someone you want to see anything bad happen to. There is nothing good about this news. Here's one Ute wishing him a speedy return and a continued successful career.

Spokane Ute, I don't think it necessarily is something severe, although it may be. I don't mean this as a dig at Utah, but the truth is that Bronco's punishments are more severe than just about any other schools for a similar infraction. If you remember, Blechen wasn't suspended until he'd had multiple failed drug tests. I'm fairly certain Bronco would hand out a suspension immediately upon a first failed drug test. Illegal drugs are just as illegal in Salt Lake as they are in Provo. I really don't mean this as starting a war of words, its just the truth that the two programs handle things very differently. Rarely do we hear of a program handing out less severe punishments than byu.

It may be serious and maybe its really a big time honor code violation. I just remember O-Neill Chambers getting suspended for things that other schools would brush off like they were nothing. I too am curiuos to hear, hopefully he can return at some point.

Sorry to hear this, but please note it was "team rules" that he violated, not University rules. But, as a Senior, he should have known better. I hope he is able to work through it and play later in the season.

Nice to see that integrity means something at BYU. Hard to hear as this is, I'm glad that rule violations will be punished no matter when they occur.

BYU is deep at that position and though this loss will make it a little tricky, I'm confident in a BYU win on Saturday night. I'm sure to see more disgruntled ute fans "hungover" from the loss in church on Sunday.

I thought BYU players liked the honor code?
