09/25/13 - A suspended BYU football player says he violated the school's honor code by drinking alcohol and partying in Las Vegas. Sports Illustrated reports Wednesday that 23-year-old Spencer Hadley is ashamed of his actions. He plans to stay at BYU and is asking forgiveness. Hadley didn't break any laws in his multiple trips to Las Vegas, but he violated the Mormon-owned college's honor code, which prohibits using alcohol, drugs and engaging in premarital sex.
The senior linebacker from Connell, Wash., missed last weekend's game against rival Utah and can't rejoin the team until the Cougars play Boise State on Oct. 25 at the earliest. Hadley is Mormon and served a mission. He tells SI that he went to the Las Vegas clubs because he was curious. - AP Sports
09/18/13 - BYU linebacker's suspension set at five games...BYU linebacker Spencer Hadley's suspension was defined by the school as five games, according to reports on Tuesday night. A university spokesman confirmed to the Salt Lake Tribune and Provo Daily Herald that the suspension, which originally was announced as indefinite, stemmed from a violation of BYU's strict honor code of conduct.
The university did not offer an explanation of the nature of the infraction and coach Bronco Mendenhall did not make a statement. The honor code prohibits premarital sex and alcohol and drug use. The Daily Herald reported that Hadley will remain in school and work with the dean of students during the suspension.
The junior started the Cougars' first two games this season and all 13 games in 2012. He is tied for fourth on the team in tackles with 12 so far this year. Hadley will miss Saturday's in-state battle with Utah at LaVell Edwards Stadium. His backup at the linebacker spot is senior Tyler Beck. - The Sports Xchange
09/17/13 - BYU starting LB Spencer Hadley suspended indefinitely...BYU starting linebacker Spencer Hadley has been suspended indefinitely due to a violation of team rules, and he has been ruled out for the Cougars' rivalry game against Utah on Saturday night. The senior linebacker has played both inside and outside linebacker over the course of his career, starting at the inside buck position for the Cougars' first two games. Senior Tyler Beck, at 6-1, 220 pounds, is listed as his backup, and the Salt Lake Tribune suggested that 6-1, 235 pound sophomore Manoa Pikula could see some action in Hadley's absence as well.
The Cougars defense has been one of the nation's best in recent years, and after holding Texas to just 21 points -- while Taysom Hill and the offense ran up 550 rushing yards in a game that cost defensive coordinator Manny Diaz his job - it looked like there would be little change under defensive coordinator Nick Howell. If Hadley is out for an extended period of time, it's another setback for a unit that has seen it's share of preseason and early season injuries. Last month, the Cougars lost starting cornerback Jordan Johnson to a season-ending knee injury.
BYU is currently a touchdown favorite over the Utes, and each team enters the rivalry game with one loss on the season. Utah lost its Pac-12 opener to Oregon State in a 51-48 shootout last week while BYU lost its season-opening monsoon to Virginia on Aug. 31. The two schools announced earlier this week that the series would continue in 2017 and 2018. - Chip Patterson, CBSSports.com
