So, Brandon Davies got kicked off the BYU basketball team for having consensual sex with his girlfriend, who is above the age of consent.
It is because that's a violation of the BYU honor code.
Pat Forde thinks it is really awesome that BYU did this, because it shows that principles come before performance, while skirting the issue of whether the principles really make sense.*
* That being said, I don't feel sorry for Davies...if you want to have premarital sex, don't go play basketball at BYU. Easy enough.
But this is the part that I find fascinating...you have to request a waiver and get a doctor's recommendation if you want to have a beard. There's an official "beard waiver" process.
