BYU linebacker Spencer Hadley (# 2) was suspended today from the team indefinitely for violating team rules. According to byucougars.com, Bronco made the announcement today. No specific reason was given other than violating team rules. The short article can be referenced here.

Spencer came to us after excellent performances at Connell High School in Washington. There he helped He had 60 carries for 606 yards with nine touchdowns on the offensive side of the ball. His work helped lead his Eagles to a 13-1 record and a trip to a 1A State Championship game in his senior year.

He is a 227 pound, 6'1" inside linebacker with a mustache and future in exercise science. This suspension couldn't have come at a worse time for Spencer where football is concerned.

He'll have to watch from the sidelines just like the rest of us while his brothers fight the last installment of the Holy War for two years. The team will have to practice with his purported backup, Tyler Beck.

Violating Team Rules

It's easy to assume the worst when this kind of announcement comes out. The school's rules are strict, governing the availability of facial hair and the moral standards of each of its players. When they play at such a visible level with the church's reputation on their shoulders, the consequences are often swift and definite.

BYU has shown in the past that it will stick to its guns though. Even though we are so close to the rivalry game, the administration will have the integrity to follow the rules at any point in time, even if it costs them the game. You have to give them props for that.

Although we don't know what happened, it would never be fair to demonize him, as we all have made mistakes. Ours just haven't always been left to public scrutiny. We wish Spencer Hadley all the best in the future.
