Five-game suspension for BYU’s Spencer Hadley

Spencer Hadley

Yesterday evening brought word that BYU had indefinitely suspended Spencer Hadley.  A short time later, the indefinite had been defined.

A school spokesperson confirmed to both the Salt Lake Tribune and Provo Daily Herald that the starting linebacker will be suspended for a period of five games.  The official also confirmed that the suspension came as a result of a violation of the university’s strict honor code.

What part of the code, which prohibits premarital sex and the use of alcohol and drugs among other things, Hadley violated was not detailed.

Hadley will stay in schools “and would be working with the dean of students during that time until certain conditions were met,” the Daily Herald wrote.

Because of the suspension, Hadley will miss games against Utah, Middle Tennessee State, Utah State, Georgia Tech and Houston.  The earliest the senior would return to the playing field would be for a Friday, Oct. 25, game against Boise State.

Hadley, who had started the past 15 games at linebacker, will likely be replaced in the starting lineup by senior Tyler Beck.

    I know that I could never go to that school, and as ridiculous as I think their “code” is, guys know about it before committing there. At least the school walks the walk.

    Nothing wrong with the code as it keeps both the young man and school out of trouble. This is just like public schools for years talking about private ones wearing uniforms and have all boys or girls.
    It is a successful formula and better for the young man to learn from this at as young an age as possible so that he goes on to be a productive citizen. You always hear about some guy that slipped throught the system doing things and no one reprimanded or punished them. This is hitting the guy were it hurts. Football stardom to get him the ladies and/or a future NFL career or whatever. More schools need to follow their lead!

    Hey, Shakespeare. The entire sentence reads: “What part of the code, which prohibits premarital sex and the use of alcohol and drugs among other things, Hadley violated was not detailed.”

    Take out the part between the commas, and it would read: “What part of the code Hadley violated was not detailed.”

    Instead of shaking your head at poor English and no proofreading, perhaps you should be disappointed in and ashamed of your own utter lack of reading comprehension.

    He got caught nailing some co-ed. Jim McMahon already said the girls he was having fun with kept their mouths shut. College kids having sex, who’d a thunk?
