    #2 seed is really, really optimistic. I think they would have to win out (highly unlikely), and win the tournament (also unlikely at Las Vegas), then maybe a #3 or #4 seed. Historically they just don't get much respect from the NCAA when it come to seeding for the tourney. They always end up getting seeded about 2 places lower then what most sports analysts predict. That is just the way it is. When all is said and done I predict a #6 seed. I hope I'm wrong.

    If you are encumbered by either the dress code or the honor code at BYU, don't apply for admission! There are hundreds of other men who would love to take your place on campus but were denied for whatever reason(usually academics). Simple, right?

    BobP: BYU's beard policy is an archaich remnant left over from the 60's when a beard actually was symbolic of rebellion against all that is good and traditional.

    After losing to SDSU in San Diego, BYU will be a #2 seed only if it wins the MWC tournament, which I doubt will happen due to fatigue that seems to be dragging on certain players. Haven't seen much offense lately from Collingsworth, Hartsock, or Emery. Davies needs to play at his best ALL game, not just for one half. Jimmer can only carry the team on his back for so long. It is TRULY AMAZING what he has done while being double teamed and physically guarded by rotating shifts of the other teams' best defenders. Still don't know if he is the best player in BYU history (vs. Ainge), but Jimmer is definitely having the best single year of any BYU player EVER and probably the best two consecutive years EVER. He should have been allowed to start half way through his freshman year. Very surprised Rose didn't do that.

    Just keep on winning and time will tell where BYU belong in the seeding. Nothing wrong with the honor code and yes if you get the medical thing will pass it.

    Somewhere in here Jeff someone is confused about Dress code verses Honor code. There's a huge difference...but not enough to really make a story out of...Yawn... who cares!!!

    Actaully it is only an honor code violation if you do not have a medical release and anyone that has gone to BYU knows how easy it is to get one of those

    For the life of me I can't see why growing a beard would be against BYU's honor code. What an inane policy.
