Pancho and Khalid Thomas Land at Alabama State

Pancho (left, sacking the MSU QB) and Khalid Thomas were dismissed from the UK team in early July.


The fate of the Thomas brothers was in limbo in early July. After embracing new roles for Coach Mark Stoops, they unfortunately broke team rules and were immediately dismissed from the team. Luckily the story for the Thomas’ brothers isn’t a completely unhappy ending; Khalid and Pancho have transferred to D-II Alabama State, a UK opponent this fall. Khalid told the Montgomery Advertiser:

“It means a lot to have another opportunity to play football,” Khalid said, calling his dismissal from Kentucky “a situation where you were in the right place but at the wrong time. Coach Stoops is a pretty good coach. I’m just sorry it didn’t work out.


Khalid never got to suit up a game for the Cats, but the loss of Pancho has made a big impact on the UK defense. The heir to Avery Williamson’s throne, Pancho would have been a viable asset for a linebacking group that has yet to impress Coach Stoops.

    Sigh. Alabama State is not a D2 school. They are a D1 FCS school. It’s amazing how little this site’s writers know about college sports in general, no D1 FBS school ever plays a D2 school.

    After Isiah Crowell from UGA and these two pick-ups, I wonder if AL State follows the same core values that UL follow too???

    Ya, it’s terrible, but they have no one to blame but themselves. They were pulled over for speeding. Cops smelled marijuana, giving them probable cause to search the car, in which they found, weed, blow, money, and a gun. Would have been nice to have them from a depth stand point, but we have some stud running backs coming in. People don’t talk a lot about him, but besides Barker, I think the running back from Nebraska who was ranked the 57th overall player coming out of high school, could be a stud
