By now, we have all heard about the incident involving Drew Barker, Boom Williams, Tymere Dubose, and Dorian Baker and the resulting suspension against South Carolina. And I agree 100% with Mark Stoops decision to suspend the players. I’m not going to get preachy or condemn the players more than what has been done. I was a college freshman and I have done far stupider things. It appears however that the suspensions may not be the only punishment the players receive.  

"UK Police Chief Joe Monroe said police recovered the suspected weapon — described as an “air-soft pistol” — late Sunday night on UK’s South Campus near where the shots were reported. No one was injured in the incident. The football sanctions might not be the last of the incident for Baker, Barker, Dubose and Williams. University spokesman Jay Blanton said when the UK Police Department wraps up its investigation it will forward the case to the Fayette County Attorney’s Office to discuss the next step. UK also will turn over the information to the Office of Student Affairs, which could hand out its own punishments based on student code of conduct. “But I think it would be inappropriate to pre-judge that process,” Blanton said. “We need to let that process play out.” The players could face additional sanctions as outlined by the student code of conduct. The code states that punishable disciplinary offenses include “any possession or display of, or attempt, or threat to use firearms, explosive or other weapons upon University property without University authorization.”"

There was some good news for Kentucky Football as Darrian Miller was honored by the SEC.

"LEXINGTON, Ky. — After grading out at 89 percent in Kentucky’s win over Vanderbilt, senior offensive tackle Darrian Miller has been tabbed Southeastern Conference Offensive Lineman of the Week, it was announced by the league office on SEC Now on the SEC Network on Monday night. A product of Lexington’s Bryan Station High School, Miller starred for the Wildcats on the offensive line in UK’s win over Vanderbilt on Saturday. Miller didn’t allow any sacks or quarterback hurries, did not commit any penalties or have missed assignments, and was credited with four knockdown blocks. A 6-foot-5, 292-pounder, Miller is the second UK player named SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week in 2014, joining sophomore center Jon Toth, who was honored after UK’s season-opening win over UT Martin. Wide receiver Garrett Johnson was also named SEC Freshman of the Week following UK’s three-overtime thriller at Florida, after collecting a UK freshman record 154 receiving yards on six catches. Miller has played in 39 games in his four-year career, the second-most on the club, making 29 starts on the offensive line. Kentucky (3-1, 1-1 SEC) will return to action Saturday, playing host to South Carolina for a 7:30 p.m. ET kickoff at Commonwealth Stadium. The game will be televised live on the SEC Network and will be broadcast live on the UK Radio Network, with Tom Leach, Jeff Piecoro and Dick Gabriel calling the action."
