John Calipari remains hopeful that Wake Forest transfer Olivier Sarr will be eligible to play for Kentucky this season.

"We feel confident, but you never know until you hear it’s good to go," Calipari said Tuesday in a Zoom news conference with reporters. "He’s got a great case, but we’ll wait to hear."

Sarr, who averaged 13.7 points and nine rebounds per game as a junior at Wake Forest, is projected to start at center for Kentucky if eligible. At 7 feet, 255 pounds, the native of Toulouse, France, would provide the physical veteran presence the Wildcats' roster lacked after the departure of eight of the nine players who scored a point last season.

That article was from July 14th. Two full months have passed since then, and still no news about Sarr.

Not looking very promising.

If Sarr doesn't get eligible that is blatant evidence that the NCAA has it in for UK, always. How the heck do you allow Juzang to transfer and be eligible right away, but you don't do the same with Sarr. Just makes absolutely no sense, and infuriates me. Someone said on another thread they drive by NCAA headquarters and would like to leave a note. I would like to leave a note, and a burning bag of something on the doorstep.

I've been saying since the NBA moved the date to put their name in the draft due to COVID that Sarr has no chance of being ruled eligible to play. His main argument was that Manning was fired after the original NBA draft deadline. Then COVID hit and they moved it and Sarr still didn't put his name in the draft. That pretty much put it in writing to me that he will not be eligible.

Sad, but that is how the NCAA will no doubt rule.

Wife's Mad. Told me we never talk anymore. And just last nite while watching super bowl told her 2 or 3 times to get me a coke and popcorn. Also told her not to forget to take out trash in the morning. Ain't that something. Also told me I was too indecisive. Can't figure out what to do about that. One nice thing I guess. She called me a pro crastinator. Don't know what a crastinator is but I guess I'm a good one for her to call me a pro. Gonna wait til tomorrow to look that up though. I love her but somrtimes can't help but thinking I should have told uncle Junior to keep his coon hound pup and stevens double barrel and also his youngest daughter.

The only sticking point on that as I see it is Sarr had already committed to UK and was progressing with his plans and life according to the current rules. The NCAA doesn't have to worry about making their plans. All they have to do is change the rules to fit their desire and to hell with the kids and everyone else. Looks like a one way street in their favor because they have the ball in their hands and to hell with the ones it affects the most. [Mad]
