1st, he's not Mormon.
How do you know that? Because he's Black? ;)

2nd I'm sure no one ever breaks rules in college....
I've heard the Honor Code is non-negotiable at BYU and the LDS rules the place with an iron fist.

If they're willing to let non-LDS players into the school and let them drink/smoke/F , in order to win, then my hat's off to them for being reasonable.

I know he's not Mormon because he said so in an article I found. Also, I'm not sure he's black.


Bethel has an honor code too but I've heard all kinds of stories from Bethel grads. Kids will be kids, even Mormon kids. The school can't police it if they don't know about it.

Thanks for the link.

Mormons are stricter than Baptists and certainly Catholics. But that doesn't prove that BYU doesn't look the other way for non-members. I'm pretty sure the honor code applies to you regardless, so obviously if you get caught that's a sticky situation.


I'm no expert, he could easily be biracial as well, but he certainly is not white. That part doesn't really matter as he's clearly a non-member by your link.

I'm guessing it's their rules with the home and home.
Big Ten refs when they play the game at Auburn probably.
I would say, that's just kinda weird ... but maybe it makes sense. Remove a degree of perceived home-field special cookin.

I don't know if it's the case anymore, but BYU was long known for having a "tattletale culture". Easier to police if you can convince your students into doing it for you. I remember listening to a podcast where a girl was reported for wearing the wrong type of clothing.

He looked right at the ball carrier and decided to tackle his blocker. One to many concussions?😯
It’s Miami, lots of talent but no one willing to do what it takes to win.

Best hit of the weekend

Perhaps best hit of the weekend, but also a bit of poor sportsmanship on this guys part as he clearly was defenseless and he knew he was going to hurt him. Grant it is rugby, but I would think there would be a little code.

Sure glad we don't have to go up against "Goliath" this year in football...
(BTW, the final score was St. Thomas 3, Goliath 44)

RE SEC Refs in PSU-Auburn game: I believe in most non-conference games, the refs are from the visiting teams conference.
