Having been suspended for five games by BYU last week due to an honor code violation, linebacker Spencer Hadley detailed his transgressions to Sports Illustrated writer Jeff Benedict over the weekend. Benedict's report, which begins with a description of how Hadley joined the team last Friday when it went to the state prison in Draper to present a fireside to inmates, is now online and can be found here. The article recaps the events that unfolded last week after coach Bronco Mendenhall announced that Hadley had been suspended indefinitely and how the school hours later acknowledged it was for an honor code violation and the suspension would last five games.
As the Tribune first reported last week after securing documents and a photo from the University of Utah via a GRAMA request, an e-mailer who referred to himself as "Darren Lucy" and a "die hard Utah Utes fan" alerted compliance officials at BYU's rival, the University of Utah, of Hadley's partying at a Las Vegas club.
Benedict's article confirms that the photo of Hadley partying at a club in Las Vegas is indeed authentic (the Tribune could not verify that when it published its report last week), and confrms the e-mailer's charge that Hadley went to Las Vegas during the weekend that BYU had a bye.
