In “it’s about damn time” news, the Herald-Leader’s Jen Smith is reporting that Eastern Kentucky will soon take action on the EKU football players involved in the Richmond bar/dorm fights with UK’s Drew Barker, Tymere Dubose, and Dorian Baker. Based on the security footage, this probably means Colton Scurry and Patrick Graffree will soon have some ‘splainin’ to do.
This story has gone viral over the past few days after Richmond police released security footage of both events, most notably former UK/EKU player Patrick Graffree sucker punching Drew Barker. The clip is startling for many reasons, but the most disturbing may be how neither of Drew’s teammates come to his aid after he’s knocked down. It’s been a hot topic of debate online, especially among former Kentucky players. Micah Johnson, who played linebacker at UK from 2006-2010, couldn’t believe it:
I'm jus now seeing this drew baker #KO no way that happens 2006-2010 ðŸ’¯

I mean, you know it’s bad when we’re agreeing with Colin Cowherd of all people:
How could you watch a teammate get sucker punched. Be on the floor seemingly out and not defend him. Just disgusting.

Not surprisingly, Graffree (@EasyMoney_40) hasn’t tweeted since the video was released.
