Kentucky football team members busted for alleged pot possession.

Can life get any worse for Kentucky head fooball coach Joker Phillips after an overtime loss to Western Kentucky and an 1-2 start? Yes it can, and yes it has. Three members of the Kentucky football team have been busted by the UK police department on charges of possession of marijuana. charges. The players involved are cornerback Marcus Caffey, wide receiver Bookie Cobbins, and running back Raymond Sanders.

The arrests happened Thursday night, according  to an AP report citing the Lexington Herald-Leader.

The newspaper said Sanders, of Stone Mountain, Ga., and Cobbins, of New Orleans, were suspended for Saturday's game against Western Kentucky, which the Wildcats lost 32-31 in overtime. They are eligible to play Saturday at Florida. Caffey, of Atlanta, was ruled academically ineligible before the season began.

No matter how much Phillips would want to blame these arrests on Mark Richt losing control of the Kentucky players, that only works on Twitter. His Hot Seat has just gotten hotter.
