Good news for Billy Napier?

Kentucky will be without All-SEC senior running back Chris Rodriguez for its season opener vs. Miami (Ohio) on Saturday.

Rodriguez was not on Kentucky’s Week 1 depth chart released Monday…

During his weekly press conference Monday, head coach Mark Stoops says Rodriguez is one of multiple players he suspects will serve a multiple-game suspension. Stoops confirmed senior outside linebacker Jordan Wright is also among the suspended players.

“A few of them will have multiple-game suspensions but I don’t know how long. I suspect one will be back next week,” Stoops said before announcing he will provide more information next week.

If only for the name alone, I love Kavosiey Smoke, but nobody’s going to confuse him with Rodriguez.  If he’s not available when the ‘Cats travel to Florida, you can’t help but begin to wonder if Gus Malzahn’s rabbit’s foot has made its way to Gainesville.

    Since their first league opponent is FU why not invoke SOS’s own rule. Suspensions to be served in non conference games only.

    This implies Kentuck has more discipline problems than fu. I find that pretty hard to believe.

    Since this is the same Stoops that kept his starters in to get a garbage score against us, I’ll go out on a limb and assume Rodriguez will be playing.

    Maybe UK suspends him for multiple games but just not in a row a la Urbs.

    Oh no! Has Mark Richt lost control of Kentucky as well. Well as the OBC used to say, Good go get them early when several players are serving their suspensions, or something like that.

    Didn’t Rodriguez have a DUI over the summer?
