Dorian Baker was suspended, did not travel to UT

You might’ve noticed Dorian Baker was absent from the Kentucky sideline down in Knoxville on Saturday. Turns out, Baker was suffering a suspension and did not make the trip.

He was suspended for that game,” Stoops said, when asked for Baker’s whereabouts during UK’s loss. “He’ll be back this week.

Stoops did not shed any light on the reason for the wide receiver’s suspension. But no matter the reason behind the punishment, it’s very disappointing for a fifth-year senior to be missing games toward the end of his career.

    He’s been a shell of his former self. Hope he can wake up before the end of the season.

      A little late for that to happen…

    You gotta wonder if this is related to our offense woes of late. Morale in that locker room taking a hit.

    He probably slapped Gran for not using him in the offense…just sayin’. Conrad, Bowden, Baker, Rose not used nearly enough. Gran’s game plan was the same every week. Other teams were able to exploit defensive weakness in Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Missouri but our OC couldn’t. Snell between the tackles was 80% of his play calls.
    GO CATS !!

      We have two great backs; I guess a 2 back set would be too complicated…for the coaches.

      Why would we throw to Baker when he drops the ball almost every time?

      SPOT ON! And the kid, who is a senior… has A LOT of growing up to do. What a shameful way to end your football career!

      Agree J-dub. I was very excited for his senior season but he cant catch anything.

      He has had years to prove that he is worth using a down to throw a pass his way. He is what he is, a pretty good downfield blocker.

      Offense lack of production clearly an issue and those guys questioning play calling by Gran. #26 getting mauled on 2 yard runs is getting old! If you are an NFL team, is Snell looking like high draft pick to you? All this early Heisman talk has vanished into 2-3 yards per carry. Could he follow a Josh Allen and return for his senior season……….Didn’t work out to well for Boom Williams. All spring and summer we heard about wide receiver depth and play-makers…….maybe someone should introduce them to OC!

    Actually he’s a fifth year senior and a waste of a scholarship. He cant catch the ball and apparently isnt much of a leader.

    He’s the best blocking wide receiver, other than that, he doesn’t add to the offense!

    He can’t catch a cold running naked in Alaska soaking wet. He had that one good catch at Florida I believe but maybe one other one but that’s it. He has been a big disappointment to this team
