Marcelys Jones dismissed from the team for a violation of team rules

After sharing the good news that Patrick Towles has been named the starting quarterback, Mark Stoops had to temper it with some bad news. Stoops says he had to dismiss Ohio State transfer Marcelys Jones for a violation of team rules. The 6’5″ 315 lbs. offensive guard transferred to UK in June, but, unfortunately, it was all for naught.

A LOT happened in that presser and Nick will recap it all for you, but here’s a quick injury report:

  • Senior linebacker Ryan Flannigan is still out with a shoulder injury, but Stoops insisted it is “nothing major.”
  • Freshman linebacker Jordan Jones will be out a couple of weeks with an illness
  • Sophomore running back Boom Williams is back running again after a minor knee injury, but Stoops said he still hasn’t been a full go at practice.

More coming in just a little bit. Phew.

    This is bad news… I hope this kid turns around whatever the behavior was that got him kicked off the team.

    “Marcelys, there’s a Bobby Petrino on the phone who wants to speak with you”

      Really stupid comment! Why wasn’t this joke made about Stoops when he picked up the trash from Ohio State? That’s right…you’re a homer

      He’d still be on Louisville’s roster. Stoops actually disciplines players.

      Cats paw once again defending the Louisville program. Go figure.

      You know what’s the lamest, pu$$y thing you can do? Pretend to be a fan of your rival, so you can post hater comments and feign credibility because you are “a true fan”. If you are a UofL troll – at least admit it and quit playing pretend like a small child. The “you’re a homer” response is retarded.

      Cats paw: go follow your beloved Petrino at Louisville, and wonder why your teams chances of winning the National Championship is less than Tennessee, Clemson, etc. and stay the hell away from here. Your little ruse isn’t fooling anyone.

      Cats paw is an idiot! Jones wasn’t dismissed from Ohio St, he just transferred to get more playing time. I could be wrong, but I don’t think Stoops has taken any players that have been dismissed from other schools. Meanwhile, practically half of UofL’s roster has been convicted of a crime and dismissed from other schools.

      UK Terry speaks the truth. Cats paw can’t handle the truth.

    Geez, that was quick. He must have done something pretty bad.

    One would think drugs are involved for the harsh penalty.

    We are deep at OL

  9. Well, I hate to acknowledge what #6 said, but we may now know why he transferred, and it’s apparently not playing time. This is a blow because he was supposed to be part of a great OL along with Leavitt, Jackson, etc.

    Well , The bad news has started like every year. Hopefully this is it.

      There’s 85 guys on the team. It would be statistically impossible for nothing bad to happen to any of them. Bad stuff like this or injuries happens to every team, every year.

      I hope this is all the bad news we hear about for a while, but unfortunately sometimes when you have a rotten apple other good fruit becomes infected. I’m hearing rumors from a close friend that is close to the program that it is in fact drug related and that he got some other guys involved with him. Not sure when it will come out or how severe the discipline will be for the others, but apparently he infected a few good minds on the team. At least a handful got mixed up in his drug excapdes. Also something about him carrying a gun. Bad behavior for our locker room all around.

    NBC news said that he had to sit this season any way, is that true.

      Of course it’s true. That’s how transfers work. Unless you drop down a division, or you’ve already graduated, you have to sit for a year.

    Maybe the drug tests in Columbus are easier to pass. Meyer’s greatest coaching job was keeping Percy Harvin and Aaron Hernandez eligible at Florida.

    Interesting drugs were mentioned.. Am I wrong that last year Hatcher was in trouble for drugs.. In trouble again but still on the team.. This kid must have really screwed up..

      If I remember correctly he was caught with some pot. I would say this was either something much worse than pot or like someone else said there was a gun involved, good job of stoops to get him out before its a bigger mess

    Well crap, our OL are dropping like flies! Looks like Jackson, Young, and other 2017 OL recruits may have to play right away.

    Kid seriously messed up to get kicked off already but he was sitting out this year anyway due to transfer rules.
