When he was playing Cowboys and Indians with my brothers as a kid.  Jim tried to untie a knot in his gun holster with a fork and it slipped. Had two prongs go through his eye. Since then, it has been hard to find images of Jim McMahon without him wearing his iconic sunglasses.

McMahon said he was asked to leave B.Y.U. on the day after his final bowl game with the team. “They said they had just been informed that I was doing some things,” he said. “Jim said, Look, I’ve been here five years, man. You follow me around, you stake out my apartment. You don’t know what I’m doing? C’mon. They know what’s going on there.”When you go to college, you’re supposed to have some fun, and that’s not the place to have fun.”

Here are a few snippets of the interview from

I mean they’re college kids, man, they’re going to do things. You know sometimes people will tell on you and sometimes they won’t.

I saw a lot of hypocrisy when I was there and that’s what turned me off about it. Guys in administration, higher-ups, sneaking off for coffee, these kinds of things that are supposedly illegal, too, yet some people get away with it and some don’t.”

Did you know this honor code existed when you got there? Did they explain it to you?

“They explain it to you. They say: ‘Oh, we have this honor code. People will probably talk to you about the religion and this and that.’ They said, ‘All you have to do is tell them I’m not interested.’ But I have to say I’m not interested for five years before I get out. It was every day. You get hounded by it.”

And yet McMahon said he’d do it all again because it was a great place to learn offensive football. He said he would recommend B.Y.U. to high school players who were serious about becoming better offensive players. “You just have to take some grief,” he said.

He concluded with, “You got to do a lot of things in private, but you can definitely have fun there if you want.”

Extra point: B.Y.U. has taken a lot of criticism for punishing Davies. Does it also deserve some respect for being true to its values?
