At BYU the Silence is Deafening

I love the atmosphere at BYU and I recognize that the Honor Code has a lot to do with that. It frustrates me when it seems like exceptions are being made for athletes. The silence of the administration on this issue makes me think they just want it to go away so that the football team will be better next year. I don't know about anyone else but I would rather have the Honor Code applied evenly to all students than have a good football team or any other team for that matter. What does everyone else think?"

This administration knows what they're doing

I really think that the administration is taking care of this issue. They probably just want to get all the facts straight before they take action. I have heard though (through word of mouth) that some members of the football team were already kicked out of BYU but I don't know for sure.

i don't think the administration is unfair... In fact I think they are very fair. Need I remind you about Julie on Real World?

Although silence on an issue like this can speak volumes, I trust the administration to make wise decisions. From the outside, it's always easy to make judgements about what the right thing to do would be. But experience shows that for those who really know the whole story, decisions are more complicated and there may be very good reason for the silence. I trust the administration to do what's best. And it's really too bad that they have to deal with such a sad situation.
