NCAA punishes Kentucky Soccer players for pickup game with Foo Fighters

Mrs. Tyler Thompsonover 3 years


Remember when the Foo Fighters played Rupp Arena back in May and rode bikes around downtown Lexington? Apparently, they also played a pickup soccer game with some UK Soccer players and coaches, which the school had to report to the NCAA because it’s a violation.

According to The Courier-Journal’s Jon Hale, several UK soccer players will have to sit out two supervised team activities (practices or meetings) because the Foo Fighters crashed their pickup game before their concert at Rupp. Apparently, the band was tired and wanted to get the adrenaline flowing, so they challenged the UK players and coaches to a game; because that game took place the week before finals and coaches participated, it violated an an NCAA rule and the school had to report it.

Leave it to the NCAA to suck the fun out of everything. Thankfully, the punishment wasn’t Everlong.
