Top Basketball Recruit Jabari Parker Is Ideal For BYU, But BYU Isn't…

This has been a breakthrough year for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Mitt Romney captured the Republican presidential nomination. Manti Te'o led the Notre Dame football team to an undefeated regular season and a No. 1 ranking. And now the nation's top basketball prospect, Jabari Ali Parker, has taken… » 12/14/12 9:00am 12/14/12 9:00am

If You Disparage A BYU-Employed Video Replay Coordinator, He Will Sue…

Over two years ago, the San Diego State Aztecs played the BYU Cougars in what ought to have been an standard regular season contest. It was anything but standard: Late in the game, a fumble by BYU's J.J. Diluigi was not called on the field, despite looking to all the world like a fumble. Naturally, the replay booth… » 12/08/12 11:40am 12/08/12 11:40am

BYU Students Earned The Vaunted "Crowd Technical Foul" Last Night

St. Mary's moved to 21-2 overall and 10-0 in the WCC with a convincing 80-66 win over BYU last night, and the frustration of the Cougar faithful (pun intended) was no more evident than at the start of the second half—when fans throwing items on the court earned BYU a technical foul call. » 1/29/12 12:30pm 1/29/12 12:30pm

The Most Boring Moments From Jimmer Fredette's Fascinatingly Boring…

So, yes, having these clips compiled does imply that I sat through nearly all 40 videos on the "Follow Jimmer" YouTube channel, and yes, I am slightly ashamed of that implication (did I get Jimmered?), but I'll stand by the belief that it was totally worth it. Jimmer Fredette & Family have embarked on a carefully curated … » 6/15/11 4:55pm 6/15/11 4:55pm

Two Decades Of Honor Code Violations

This gallery depicts almost every BYU athlete we found with an honor code incident since 1993. (Certain players have been excluded to protect our sources.) The information in the gallery comes from media reports, BYU profiles, and interviews with athletes. It is by no means definitive. Many of these incidents were… » 4/13/11 1:45pm 4/13/11 1:45pm

The Truth About Race, Religion, And The Honor Code At BYU

In the last two months, BYU has become a symbol of righteousness in college sports, thanks to the school's strict adherence to its honor code and the tenets of the Mormon faith. A look at nearly two decades of honor code violations paints a very different picture. Since 1993, we've found, at least 70 BYU Cougars have… » 4/13/11 1:45pm 4/13/11 1:45pm

The Truth About Race, Religion, And The Honor Code At BYU

Over the past month, BYU has been held up as a symbol of all that is decent in college sports for its unsparing treatment of Brandon Davies, the African-American basketball player who violated the school's honor code by reportedly having sex with his girlfriend. Davies was suspended shortly before the NCAA tournament,… » 4/13/11 1:44pm 4/13/11 1:44pm

Amar'e Stoudemire Hates The Mormons, He Hates Them Not

On Friday, New York Knick Amar'e Stoudemire had some choice twords to type about BYU's treatment of Brandon Davies. Specifically, "Don't ever go to BYU, they kick a Young Educated (Black)Brother OUT OF SCHOOL. The kid had premarital sex. Not suspended, Not Release. Wow!" » 3/06/11 4:00pm 3/06/11 4:00pm

College Football Preview: Colt McCoy and Chase Daniel Duel for Rights…

Back when I wrote that I couldn’t wait to watch the BYU-TCU game, I meant it. Completely. But what I forgot was that I’d be on the road in a hotel room. I don’t know why it is but hotels have the most erratic cable channel selections known to man. If you’re anything like me you’ve found yourself lying on a bed,… » 10/17/08 1:30pm 10/17/08 1:30pm

Thursday Night Preview: Florida State at North Carolina State and #8…

I suppose even the genius who schedules Thursday night games at ESPN is entitled to a mulligan. That's the only explanation for how Florida State at N.C. State ended up tonight's featured game. N.C. State is 2-4 and Florida State is 4-1. N.C. State has taken down William and Mary and East Carolina, Florida State has… » 10/16/08 4:15pm 10/16/08 4:15pm
