Wow. That is some messed up and sad shit. Why is BYU recruiting these kids in the first place if they're just going to look for reasons to kick them off the team?

It also kind of makes me sad that the whole ladies throwing themselves at you because you're a student athlete is so ingrained in these kids' heads. These guys shouldn't be getting into trouble for having consensual sex and whatnot, but student athletes (especially football and basketball players) always make it sound like they are entitled to it.

Though I mean, it's college. I get it. I went there once.
