    I really hope Brandon is given a second chance, he made a mistake and has owned up to it. Now he just needs to resolve the matter so he can get back to playing basketball for the Cougars. I wish him nothing but the best of luck and hope to see him on the basketball court next season as a byu cougar.

    He'd sooner go to Utah State than the U. Not trying to dis on the U, that's just the truth. It will be interesting to see what happens. Are his actions grounds for dismissal from the institution?

    Take your time brother Davies. Reflect on your experiences gained at BYU. As a basketball player you have truly grown. You have a potential Pro career. If BB is all you want to be then BYU isn't your place. However, if you want to be at a place that will continue to love and help you become a priesthood man and also a great BB player, stick around and prove to yourself that while imperfect you are willing to be refined by the adversity that you've faced. Coach Rose will help you become both.
    Best wishes no matter what you eventually decide. By confessing your violation knowing in advance the consequences you are a winner in my eyes and I'll follow your career as long as I live. Your brother in Christ.

    Instead of a Hawk for a Mascot the U would be better suited if it changed it to a Vulture or a Buzzard...

    I'm a huge BYU fan and a Big Time Brandon Davies fan.... I am a little conflicted by this whole process... When a 20 year old man who has demonstrated a lot of class, steps up and takes responsibility for his actions, and it is not criminal in nature, then I am not sure what purpose is served by a Season Long Suspension particularly when that action harms others... (i.e. Emery, Fredette, Rose, the Fan Base, and so on)... The church has a repentence process and it should run its course so that Brandon can obtain redemption.... But more than that almost feels like a little too much piling on...

    The young man already has a lot of other things that he and his family are going to have to deal with... I hardly know this kid, but I am already developing a heck of a lot of respect for the Medal that this kid is made of.... His parents should be proud.... I'm just a fan and I'm proud of him.

    It's understandable why Utah fans would be so desperate to get Brandon and Coach Rose to help rebuild their smouldering ash heap up on the hill.

    Sorry, you'll just have to spend another year watching Boylen reduce to cinders what's left of the Runnin' Utes.

    Meanwhile, Coach Rose has another very good team waiting in the wings for next season. Great coaches do that.

    Knowing Brandon personally I know that the last thing he is looking for is the type of "personal freedom" that you're espousing.

    Making a personal commitment to a code of honor isn't restricting, it's liberating.

    Besides, Brandon is already taking the necessary steps to return to playing basketball for BYU, so you're wasting your time with wishful thinking.

    That post didn't sound self-righteous at all.

    Come up to the U and the Pac 12, Brandon. Students at the U have the personal freedoms the founding fathers gave us. You will not be forced to sign your personal freedoms away at the U.

    Real Bass, I'm sure Keith Van Horn, Andre Miller, Tom Chambers don't agree with your opinion

    Hey Bo, two wrongs won't make a right. And going to the u would be all wrong!

    I have a lot of respect for Brandon. He stood up and took responsibility. He did not hide it or try to put it off until the end of the season. That is a sign of character. Best wishes in everything. I would love it if you stayed a member of the BYU team, but if that is not in the cards, I will always be rooting for you.

    Brandon, everyone does things they know they shouldn't. Not everyone steps forward and takes responsibility for what they've done. I, for one, am both sad and pleased; sad for your choice to violate the Honor Code, pleased you stepped forward and are accepting the consequences. Here's one Cougar fan hoping you'll stick around to continue your journey at BYU. You'll be missed BUT you'll be eagerly and enthusiatically welcomed back. The future, next year, is bright.

    @Bo Jangles
    I hope he does that would be awesome but it would be nice to see him redeem himself and show the byu community he can bounce back.

    Brandon, if the Y doesn't want you the U will embrace you.
