UK Dismisses Arrested LB Wilson

Joker Phillips has decided to go ahead and dismiss troubled linebacker Ridge Wilson from Kentucky’s football team.  The senior-to-be was arrested on Sunday on felony drug trafficking charges after he was found with a bag of Xanax pills and $1,947 in cash in his possession in a questionable Louisville neighborhood.

As we noted yesterday, Wilson was arrested in 2009 as a freshman for allegedly punching a woman — believed to be his girlfriend — in the face.  He was suspended for that fourth-degree assault charge, but then-coach Rich Brooks eventually allowed him to return to the team.

Wilson was set to be UK’s second-leading returning tackler this fall.  Instead, he’s squandered a great opportunity to rise above the level of “town pusher.” 

Sad.  Stupid.  Sad and stupid.
