They shouldn't be finding this stuff out so easily!

Was he asked or did he volunteer the information?

Coming on the heels of the investigation into lack of background checks in college sports, this makes for interesting reading. If premarital sex were illegal he would've gotten away with it.

Either this kid makes a lot of difference or BYU was down from the SDSU game...New Mexico killed them last night in Provo. Which is it All Out?

New Mexico is a Jekyll and Hyde team...can beat anybody and get beat by anybody.

I for one think that this is very special, morals still count, All Out I have a new found greater respect for you and your team, in this day and time that is very respectful. I know you guys lost the game of BB last night but guys are winners in the game of life. Carry on.

His removal from the team is an utter joke. BYU are a bunch of hypocrites.

March 3, 2011  08:38 AM ET

I was pulling for BYU. I watched them and they looked like they could get on a good run. This guy is their starting center, right? Now they maybe win a game and then out.

He should have pulled a play from the Slick Willy Playbook:


"I did not have sex with that woman, Ms. Lewinsky (or 'insert name here')".

March 3, 2011  08:45 AM ET

Yes, he admitted to it. He said it was part of getting ready for a career in the NBA, but school officials didn't buy it.
