Raymond Sanders will sit out the final game of his career at Kentucky due to a violation of team rules. It was reported late last week that Sanders had been dismissed from the team, but that report proved to be false when Sanders took the field against Georgia on Saturday. Now Sanders will serve a one-game suspension after Mark Stoops received new information about his senior running back’s off-the-field conduct. Stoops said he found out “about an hour ago” and he hasn’t made a decision on whether or not Sanders will participate in the Senior Day festivities.
Stoops said he doesn’t want Sanders’ mistake to define his career at Kentucky. “I’ve sat here and bragged about him all year,” said Stoops. “This doesn’t change my opinion of him. He’s a good person.”
