Redshirt freshman lineman given the boot from Kentucky

Kentucky offensive lineman T.J. Jones won’t have a chance to make an impact for the Wildcats and first-year coach Mark Stoops in 2013.

A university spokesperson told Kentucky Sports Radio that Jones had been dismissed from the team with the only reason being the universal “violation of team rules.” Therefore, whether the boot is related to Jones’ December arrest on a weapons charge is unclear. Jones allegedly brought a gun into his former high school.

Jones redshirted in 2012 and did not see any playing time. He is the ninth player to leave the program, whether through transfer or dismissal, since Stoops arrived in Lexington.

    Brilliant! You cannot make this crap up. After Newtown, Columbine, the movie theater massacre, Va. Tech……this piece of garbage does something like this? What a GD DOPE! This is not a student-athlete; this is a thug with a gun and absolutely NO COMMON SENSE! Keep this low-life away from any college campus. Good thing UK did this now… a waste of a human being!!
