With a 1-2 record in the talent-laden South Eastern Conference (S.E.C.), Kentucky is looking down the possible suspensions of three current wildcat football players found to be smoking marijuana. Joker Philips – Kentucky Wildcat football coach – said on a Lexington television broadcast that the three potheads on the roster were: wide-receiver Bookie Cobbins, cornerback Marcus Caffey and tailback Raymond Sanders. All three pot smoking college athletes were ticketed by college campus police for having cannabis in their possession.
Cobbins and Sanders were suspended prior to the Wildcat’s loss on Saturday to in-state rival Western Kentucky – Caffey is already suspended from the team due to academic probation and ineligibility. “They drink and smoke weed, and sometimes do stupid stuff when in college,” stated their head coach. “We need to hold our kids accountable for their actions. As mentors, we need to discipline them right away. Don’t wait. We try to obtain all the possible details in the equation.”
According to official police citations for all three marijuana smokers, a police officer from Kentucky on a standard routine patrol around campus grounds, caught a whiff of the distinct and aromatic smell of cannabis that was emitting from one of the players apartments. All three football players openly admitted to being friends of Mary Jane with the apartment containing cannabis and cannabis paraphernalia.
Philips stated that the 3 pot smoking students will be reinstated to the team this week. “We are in the business of helping young adults with the chance to be successful,” stated the Kentucky head coach.
