Off the Team Tough Love

Bradley Mattes   |   March 15, 2011

The headline read like a paper from the 1970s. “College Dismisses Basketball Player from Team for Having Premarital Sex.” This actually happened to Brandon Davies at Brigham Young University. The sophomore told school officials about the inappropriate relationship with his girlfriend. He’ll be off the team for the season and it remains to be seen about his future at the university. It was a devastating blow for the team to lose a starter, and Brandon’s fellow students were disappointed but said the school did the right thing. I do too. And I wish more schools would do the right thing. Getting kicked off the team is far better for Brandon than having STDs, a pregnancy and a possible tragic abortion decision to deal with. It’s what they call tough love.
