    How many other sites reported the dismissal?

    So was he never suspended to begin with, or did Stoops pull a Pitino? Regardless, glad to see Ray get 2 more games.

      The only official announcements were about Robinson, Hatcher and Quinn. There were never any official reports about Sanders.

    This should make for some very interesting post game interviews.

    So was the Sanders dismissal just KSR reporting inaccurate information from a source who was wrong?

      KSR didn’t “report” it. They just repeated what another site was saying. Actually, Matt was very specific about claiming that he could not confirm what others had reported.

      Lol then if you can’t confirm it, don’t post it on here! And then don’t let a bunch of ignorant fans trash the kid in the comments section! It’s called journalistic integrity and it was lacking in this case on KSR. They should apologize.

      Please show me where they cite a different website. Or show me where Matt was specific about not confirming it.

      KSR DID report it. Rashawn Franklin works for KSR, right? Here’s the original post:

      Report: Raymond Sanders dismissed from the team
      By Mrs. Tyler Thompson on ©6:56 pm
      This just in: according to Rashawn Franklin, senior running back Raymond Sanders has been dismissed from the team for a repeated violation of team rules.

      I don’t think Rashawn Franklin works for KSR. He used to, Matt mentioned the other day that he was working elsewhere. His twitter says BBK editor and he tweeted the dismissal on NOV 21. bleedbluekentucky.com

      CatsFanFrankfort – It is right in front of you. Rashawn Franklin writes for another site, not KSR. If you listen to the show or podcast, Matt was very clear that Rashawn was putting his name out there that Sanders was dismissed and just passing it along.

      Also, Not true – “journalistic integrity”… Dude, you are reading a blog on UK sports……….. Not USA Today. Deal with it. All of the local news outlets in Lexington were reporting that there was a report that Sanders was out, not just KSR.

    I think the Kevin Ware stuff was a little blown up by KSR as well.. I hate it because i love this site. But sometimes they will run with stuff

      I think the assumptions on Ware were fair because he’s a thug.

    Sounds like Matt and their gang need to do their homework and don’t trash a player until the truth comes out

    If you cant confirm it, you should not report it. The “other” paid site is often wrong.

    You owe the man an apology and you should make it a very public one and not shuffle blame on someone else.

    The kids at KSR better get out in front of this one. They slung some mud over the Kevin Ware thing and gave kudos to KY staff and admin for the erroneous report of a Raymond Sanders suspension. Love the site but they need to decide if they care about credibility or is sensationalism and ratings enough.

    Raymond sanders an apology! Bet he doesn’t get one tho, these guys never admit any mistake

    And there were 117 comments. About 100 of those called Sanders a loser, a cancer, a reject. “Good riddance”. This really sucks. Take a look at yourselves in the mirror KSR staff and see what you’ve become. And I can already see y’all deflecting blame and defending yourselves. There is no defense. Shameful and disgusting.

    Classy KSR. You owe Sanders an apology. Don’t post it on your blog if you can’t confirm. Lost a lot of credibility with many folks.

    Look in the mirror indeed. In the mad dash to stake out the “holier than thou” position, bbn decided to throw Raymond Sanders under the bus. Totally speaks to character – or lack thereof – of those “fans” who crapped on one of their own. No wonder your basketball players only stay one year…

    Glass houses, our players only stay for a year because the can go to NBA and make millions! Geez

      Its called “sarcasm” and is frequently denoted with… The larger point is, why does bbn feel a greater bond with one and done basketball players, than football players that have devoted four years to yookay and, can they really be “your” players when they are on campus for all of eight months?

    Matt spends more time writting lies about UL he does not have time to find out the truth about his own team. Matt lives off sensationalism instead of facts. He sure has shown it this week.

    …and yet you trolls spend countless hours reading and commenting on this site. Being a Cards fam must suck if the highlight of your day is trolling.

      I’m guessing that being a cat fan must suck worse, if you’re busy defending KSR from trashing a uk player, at the same time that kid – and the rest of your team – are busy getting their heads kicked in at georgia. Are you sure you shouldn’t be chief_ksr apologist?

    #19..not sure what a card fam is, but if you mean fan it is a GREAT time. Best year ever in all sports and we are the UNIVERSITY of the state….it must suck to be a UK fan with only 1 sport that is decent….



  21. Big Blue Disappointment in KSR
    7:06 am November 24, 2013 Permalink

    ” So, there’s that” is really all KSR has to say about reporting false and damning information about one of our own players? Really? Cant even give the guy maybe a “sorry for reporting unconfirmed rumors as fact”. Im sure Sanders appreciates it guys. Its okay to make mistakes and be wrong, everyone makes them, but my guess instead of being adults with some sort of journalistic integrity, you at KSR will make excuses and deflect this, instead of own up to it and apologize. I guess we will see if I am wrong…

      Exactly! That’s the quote that got me, very smug, very disrespectful to sanders, stoops, & the whole football team. Thompson is acting like it’s somehow a slap in the face to her and ksr that they reported some bullshit. Sickening!

      11:57 am November 24, 2013 Permalink

      Really??? It was said on KSR that Rashawn Franklin was reporting this… Franklin does not write for KSR!!!!! They reported his report, as did WLEX and WKYT.
