CoShik Williams out for the season, career over

It keeps getting worse for Kentucky football.

Today, Joker Phillips announced that senior tailback CoShik Williams is out for the season with a torn labrum in his hip. The season-ending injury also marks the end of Williams’ career at Kentucky. Williams redshirted as a freshman, therefore a medical redshirt isn’t an option.

Williams carried the ball 170 times for 738 yards and seven touchdowns over his career as a Wildcat.

    That’s a shame. Best of luck Coshik The Freak!

    After hearing about our injuries that keep piling up, I can not help but wonder… Are we using the same strength and conditioning coach as the UL basketball team?” This is unreal. I hate it for our kids, especially CoShik as he ended his season on terms that no kid should!

    I for one will be sad to not ever see CoShik play again. It was nice to see a player that had such a good motor and heart out on the field. Best of luck to him.

    I can hear it now:

    Mitch: We had far too many injuries this season so Joker Phillips will return as our head coach next year.

    Hmmm….there are cases where the NCAA has allowed a medical redshirt in effect giving a player a 6th year in which to play 4. Most recent example is Case Keenum of Houston….redshirted freshman year, tore ACL 3 games into senior season. NCAA granted him another year on medical hardship grounds.

    Wrong. UK can and likely will apply for a 6th year of eligibility due to medical hardship.

    I had a public speaking class last year with CoShik, and Ridge..forgot his last name but he was the one that got kicked off the team AND IT WAS HILARIOUS!! These guys kept the class laughing and made it enjoyable, sad to see their UK Football careers end in the way they did. I doubt public speaking is in their future as well

    Sorry for this young man. Will be praying for him. Listen after the 2nd half against south carolina there could be a lot more injuries.

    #5 – I agree completely. This has happened multiple times throughout the years that I can remember. Plus, he didn’t play in 2 games this year. With his injury history, however, he might just choose to hang it up. Either way, thanks to CoShik for always giving 100%. Wish all walk-ons worked out like him.

    Hate to see this happen to a guy who fought to get on the field. Best of luck to him!

    Why cant Joker or UK petition for a Medical Hardship case and be granted a 6th year? Schools all over the country do It.

    5) Tommy Cook got a 6th year after he was shot. And isn’t that Hummel kid at Purdue a 2-time medical redshirt?

    I guess it’s up to Williams if he wants UK to pursue a 6th year of eligibility. He would probably win it, but on the other hand, he may be ready to get on with his real life after college, too. We’ll see.

    Yes, he can ask for a 6th year. Yes, Hummel got 6. If I remember correctly we had a guy get 6 years too, but I’m old and got CRS(can’t remember sh…errr…stuff)

    Regardless, best of luck to Mr. Williams, he didn’t get any this year, so he’s due.

    Life isn’t fair. Is just sad to see a young man like this who has busted his ass to final get to this point. Right when is efforts are starting to bare fruit it’s cut short. Then you look at a kid like Boyd who had all kinds of talent just being Lazy and not taking his god given talents seriously enuff. Oh well like I said life isn’t fair.

    Matt McCutchan, our center on Brooks’ first bowl team in 2006, was a six-year player after a medical redshirt and sitting out a year after transferring from Navy.

    Coshik Williams will certainly apply for a 6th year of eligibility knowing there will be a new coach next year. This kid has made himself an outstanding college football player. He is the strongest (per pound) player on the team and he is also one of the fastest as he runs a 4.5. Coshik has a chance to play professionally with that speed and strength and will be looking to do anything he can to keep that dream alive.

    Sorry to hear that. From what time he saw on the field, I was impressed with his ability. Come play for the East Kentucky Drillers!

    Hate to see it for the young man — he was a thriller – everytime he was in the game, you felt that something was going to happen. Best of luck in the future.
