October 8, 2014

The University of Kentucky has indefinitely suspended a freshman player from its football team after he was charged with rape, the Louisville Courier-Journal reported. Lloyd Tubman, a defensive end on the team, was charged with first degree rape on Tuesday by university police. "Obviously, I'm very concerned about the allegations and all parties involved," Mark Stoops, UK football coach, said in a statement. "We're working extremely hard to develop quality young men on and off the field. We will continue to cooperate with the local and campus authorities while the process takes its course."
