Not good news. He said UK needs to get out in front of it.
Worse than what??? Kid running a drug operation..how much worse can it get?
My speculation is more involved...that's how it could get considerably worse.
More players are going to get booted. Have to hope they aren’t starters
We knew this story was worse when it happened. and that’s a true story
Stoops may have to realize where he is at now....this isnt Florida State where that kind of stuff is swept under the rug
Hopefully it's a wake up call for the rest of the team and those surrounding him.
He was caught with A LOT of weed. And a cash counter. The ONLY way I can see it as being "worse" (from an athletics perspective) is if he had some yet unnamed "help" on the team.
A new recruiting aid for U6, and probably others.
If this turns out to be a major team problem then Stoops needs to go. Unacceptable if it is a widespread issue.
That's a bit over the top. If this turns out to be Art Briles level then yeah he will have to go. There's not really any indication based on what we know now that it's heading in that direction though.
Explains his lack of development after coming in as a 4* recruit. You would think it would be easy to recognize the lack of commitment from a kid within the program.
Hopefully this is an isolated situation and not part of the culture here.
This thread has Wildcard excited, so much so that he used two different emojis.
It is what it is. From time to time this stuff happens no matter how closely you watch over things. But, in this case, I admit, I was struck by the amount and the cash counter. Makes Hatcher's situation look pretty trifling. But if it is no more than what has been actually "reported", it will pass.
Just watch....we will have to take down our National Football Championship banner
cathouse-you need to go to your namesake and chill. Some manager you would be. Fire a coach because what some stupid 19 year old does, not because he had back to back 1-11 records.
Don't be naive, UK and UGA are the only 2 schools in the conference where every indiscretion a kid makes hits the news. Honey Badger failed 10 drug test and never missed a snap, Bama players are never use drugs until their eligibility expires, Franklin tried to cover up rape, Knoxville had a police officer who's duty was to call the coaches if a player was about to be charged. Thug life had become so accepted at UF with no penalties a group thought could fraud the school.
None of us are recruiting Sunday school teachers, just most sweep it under the rug.
But if this is some kind of mini drug cartel with a group involved, then someone has failed.
Until the staff and athletic dept gets caught for covering things up then I’d say they’re safe. Things like this really aren’t usual. Happens to players all over the country. Quick google search will tell you that. When you recruit guys who grew up in areas where this is common, it is sometimes hard to get out of the life style. A lot of guys do but some guys clearly do not
What exactly is the quote from Matt Jones? Does he mean things will get worse for Walker? The team? Both?
Must have been discussed on the radio show, which I don’t listen to. The OP did get me to go the KSR web site for the first time in months, and I saw no mention of it there.
If he was paying players to come to UK or buying prostitutes for them it would be worse.
It's worse than any of you know. Walker is fixing to sing like a bird.
Please, do tell what you know - just the facts please.
Exactly. Aaron Hernandez last year at Florida there was something like 47 arrests in their program and Hernandez was running guns and participating in a gang. Never missed a snap.
Ware, Badet and Barker all received degrees and either gave up football(Barker) went to a higher profile school for draft purposes( Badet), or already were told they had a list of things they had to address....Ware.
Once someone gets that degree, there's not much anyone can say or do.
It's not like someone was shot. What kind of program has that happen? Hmmmm
Under Richt, yes...I dare say under KS there won't be a crack a church mouse could get into at ga.
If Jones knows there is more to this story, then so does UK. “Getting out in front” of a criminal investigation is not something UK wants to do. That certainly cannot be Matt the Lawyer’s advice. The most UK can do is prepare from within for the moment the next domino falls or, at the most, suspend players who are publicly under investigation.
I just hope this situation isn't as bad as what you Cards had going on at Cardinal Towne a few years ago. Drug dealing football player sells/gives heroin and pills to a cheerleader who dies in his room. The Athletic Dept. did its best to cover it up but the truth came out eventually.
He also used all caps and underlines for emphasis, but actually refrained from the boldface type this time.
Matt Jones, with "friends" like him UK football needs no enemies...
I just did about 20 minutes of searching, haven't found anything about this case going further. I'll wait til we see facts. Let's not let this become another Stoops affair with a student situation.
Nope, our starting ILB next to Smith last year missed the last 5 games, Kirbys first year he suspended a starter for underage alcohol comsumption for 6 games. We had one arrested last week for posting a tape of him and a young lady in a compromising situation. UGA guys make the front page of the AJC within minutes of being booked.
But I wish it were a more level field
Wildcard must have forgotten James Quick’s charges. Of course he can’t wait to submit his next baiting post over here. The dudes job is to scroll the entire interenet for anything he can find negative UK. He hangs out here more than anywhere elseeven though he is a UL fan. Glass houses.
Listen to what Grumpy says. UK's not playing on the same field as the SEC's historic upper crust....read Auburn, UT, UF.
Grumpy hit the nail on the head. It seems like a couple of SEC schools have reporters salivating over anything they find on the football team.
Not much would surprise me these days, but I want to wait until the police act.
Can't hardly start dismissing kids before someone is officially charged with something.
I also want everyone to think back on the feeding frenzy on the boards about Coach Stoops and allegations of misconduct a couple of seasons back.
Censorship 86 ? That don't sound like you
Maybe he's deflecting some UK BB news, look here, not there.
