Ashley Lowery to Play Against Western


In a statement today, Mark Stoops acknowledged that Ashley Lowery will play in Kentucky’s season opener against Western. “We’ll punish him when and if these charges come about,” Stoops said, adding that there are still a lot of unknowns about Lowery’s incident.


Stoops also added that he sees no reason to name a starting quarterback before the opener- but I’m sure that won’t keep everyone from speculating. Both quarterbacks will play in the game.

    Well he was under the influence so I guess they are waiting to see if Lowery is going to be charged with a DUI or something like that….

    UKani, yeah – that’s my take.

    Lowery has a bigger criminal background than me. I have never been charged with anything.

    4. You’re an idiot.
    IMO, he’s had his punishment for his mistake. It was dumb of him to drink and drive and he paid the price. Dude almost died, was in the hospital for a long time with serious injuries. What more punishment does a guy need/deserve.

    #4 What a ridiculously asinine perspective. Assuming Ashely Lowery WAS drinking & driving, it was an extremely stupid thing to do, there’s absolutely no excuse for it, and he should most certainly suffer whatever consequences there are to be had, both legally and with regard to his status w/ the university & its football program. That being said, you know who else has driven after drinking? A ton of other college students & kids his age. Does that excuse his (alleged) actions? Absolutely not, but you know what the vast majority of college kids have NOT done? Screwed up so badly that they’ve been kicked out of TWO previous programs, and then had to promise the third one that they would not possess a gun while being a part of it. Ha, “…never been charged with anything…”. Yeah, and Calipari has no NCAA violations either, but it never stops moronic UofL fans from trying to talk sh** about him like he’s the anti-Christ. Oh, but now that it’s some troubled kid for UofL, all of a sudden the standards are different. Pull your head out of the sand…or whatever other more unpleasant place you have it stuck, more likely.

    Obviously both of these kids have been involved w/ things they probably regret, but let’s not go comparing apples to oranges w/ these particular scenarios. Get a clue.

    It’s Ashely not Ashley. Don’t think I’ve seen any of you minus Drew get this kids name right

    Curiously, I feel like most Kentucky fans should recognize that owning a gun is not “illegal”. Dyer’s guns was legally purchased. However, it seems to me that UK fans believe that if a black person owns a gun – he is a thug and if a white person owns a gun, he is a patriotic American supporting his 2nd amendment rights.

    In my opinion a DUI is much worse than legally owning a gun, but that’s just me.

    Almost dies in a car wreck while driving drunk and we’ll wait and see what the charges are? This means one thing for sure, the team is in bad shape because any coach with morals would clearly tell this young man, sorry you’re not playing.

    Thing is, if kid was going to get charged I would think it would have already happened. That was back in may or June. Usually doesn’t take 3 or 4 months for the state to file criminal charges on something like that

  11. well!

    I guess the moderators are a little sensitive on the new site…

    Dirk…. long story short (since I just wrote a long story). I know plenty of UK fans that aren’t racist. Just like I know plenty of UofL fans that are educated, don’t work at McDonalds, and don’t wear line beards. So don’t backhandedly call me (or other UK fans)racist just because I think that Michael Dyer is of undoubtedly questionable character.

    DUI is bad, and if he is charged, then punish him. But the worse that has happened to Dyer (after his incidences) is getting kicked out of school and getting an opportunity to play elsewhere. Lowery almost died for his actions. Big difference.

    ^ I agree about your assessment of generalizations over fan bases – just the whole gun-toting Michael Dyer thing is overplayed and frankly wrong.

    However, I disagree that getting kicked out of a college is worse or even mildly equivalent to a DUI. If you get behind the wheel and are drunk enough to get in a terrible wreck – then you could have potentially killed or seriously injured another with your stupidity.

    The whole “tons of other college aged kids have had DUIs” doesn’t hold any water. Athletes should be held to a higher standard than the average student because they represent their university and are on scholarship. Also, the average student doesn’t get a DUI.

    Glad he’s playing, and all you people who are crying bout whether or not it’s “right” to let him play, STHU…till A&M’s star player is disciplined for all the crap he does, then there is no reason for UK to try and keep him off the field!

    Also, the fact that he nearly died isn’t a punishment – that was the result of his poor decisions. I’m all for second chances, but at the same time a DUI is very serious in that it has the potential to ruin other lives forever. The fact that he also plays a position of need for the football team makes it look that much worse.

    Breaking NCAA rules and breaking the law are two very different things.

    I guess the fact he was underage is OK too…and you want to call out UL players..LOL…

    You loserville fans do realize that you no-life’s post more comments on our UK website than UK fans do, right? That’s not counting all the ones that get deleted. I went to CJ to see if UK fans do the same to loserville, and out of 94 comments on the Kevin ware thing, not 1 comment was from a UK fan. It was all loserville fans talkin bout how obsessed UK is with loserville. Lmao. You all commenting on every post just goes to show how pathetically starved you all are for attention from Big Blue Brother. Get a life and go talk about your useless jargon on your loserville site. What a bunch of pathetic losers. Go Cats!!

    Dirk you are correct in one thing about Dwyer his gun was bought through legal means but that aid gun was used in a FEALONY in which Dwyer him self turned against his teammates and friends who were there with him after the all were caught. I hope he does live up to what he has told Strong and is able to play all year for UL. His past history proves not to be but we will see as the year goes on.

    Under 21, driving while intoxicated, nearly dies in a wreck – we’ll wait for the process to continue, suggesting – well maybe he wasn’t breaking the law and putting others at risk.


    Coach Stoops – you’ve shown your true colors before a single game has been played

    Yahtzee, let’s send him 165 letters letting him know we approve.

    #19 No, that’s not what he’s “suggesting,” it’s what he’s stating outright, because that’s how due process works, genius.
