The Herald-Leader is reporting that three Kentucky football players have been charged with possession of marijuana:

Three University of Kentucky football players have been charged with possession of marijuana by campus police, UK Police Chief Joe Monroe said.

Running back Raymond Sanders, cornerback Marcus Caffey and wide receiver Bookie Cobbins were all charged Thursday night, Monroe said.

99.9% of the time, that's what "violation of team rules" means, when you see it. But you knew that.

What I want to know is, what possesses a person getting a free ride scholarship to a division I school to participate in illegal activities like this? I know that most of us who were young did stuff like this (yours truly was certainly an "enthusiastic" participant), but a free education wasn't on the line, either, nor the opportunity to play a sport for a Division I school.

Yes, of course, I remember how it was to be young, so I'm glad they didn't get thrown off the team. I would like to know if Sanders and Cobbins are going to be suspended for the rest of the season, like Caffey was (Note: Caffey is not eligible for the season because of academics, not the pot charge). If not, I'd like to know why, although to be fair, none of us are really entitled to know.

The good news is, the Fulmer Cup has already been handily won. This would have been worth at least three points had it happened in the summer.

Stay away from de ganja, mon. Play football
