While BYU remains somewhat competitive in almost every sport, they cannot seem to break the barrier from becoming a good athletic institution, to a great one. BYU will not come close to breaking the threshold of mediocrity and start winning National Championships until they abolish the honor code, which inhibits cream of the crop recruits from coming to BYU. The current honor code stifles the way BYU can recruit athletes because it sets an extremely high standard that most people not of the LDS faith can’t keep. This limits BYU to recruiting the same cookie cutter type individuals. Until BYU gets rid of its honor code, other D1 programs that do not hold their athletes to such a lofty standard, will continue to outperform BYU athletics year after year.
