    I’ve read about everything I can about the Enes Kanter situation and it’s hard for me to believe that the NCAA can’t find a solution to allow him to play SOMETIME! Intent of the Kanters in this case only point to him trying to keep his amateur status….

    Let him play the excess funds received and let’s move on!!!!!!

    Free Enes you hypocritical bastards. Tell Enes to get money from a booster (Maggette), get a house for his parents to live in (Sydney), sell the house for tattoos (Ohio St tattooed 5), get more money from an Agent friend of the family (Selby) and declare for the draft and not take his name out (Bost) all the while having his Dad allegdly shop his services without his knowledge (Newton). If he can accomplish all this he will be in uniform for Georgia this weekend.

    Just sayin
    Go Cats
    Free Enes

    I don’t think they will ever free Enes, if nothing else because it is us. No offense to any Cat fan out there but I am sick of hearing about the Daniels kid. If he does’nt come off like a big time prima-donna there has never been one. Go Cats. Time to watch Matt. Later.

    What university is the president of the NCAA a graduate from? Who did UK steal Enes from in recruiting, not to mention Terrence Jones? It looks bleak Big Blue Nation.

    I have a buddy that lives in Lexington and he said everyone is saying Kanter was cleared. I’m being serious and want to know if anyone has heard anything because i’ve been refreshing this page nonstop for about 15 minutes.

    The NCAA offices should be burnt to the ground and Mark Emmert hung by his own entrails. I’m not advocating that, but it is warranted given how they are intent on burning Kanter in order to get at UK and Coach Cal.

    15- im sure he was being sarcastic by saying “everyone” but his facebook status said Enes has been freed and a bunch of people from Lexington were commenting on it saying “just saw it, so awesome” and one of my buddies text me about 20 minutes ago and said he wasnt missing the game Saturday cause Kanter just got ruled eligible and they were announcing it later tonight. I don’t think this many people would randomly joke about it at the same time but I can’t find anything on the internet, was seeing if anyone has heard anything cause I’m about to explode with excitement.

    Hopefully, the NCAA will realize that Kanter wants to be a student athlete. He could have already been making several million dollars by now if he wanted to. Nevertheless, the NCAA has a made several controversial decisions lately. In my opinion, Kanter should be allowed to play simply because the culture in Europe is different than here in the United States and some of the precedents set lately were ruled on the idea that the individuals were “not sufficiently educated about receiving impermissible benefits”. That being said, how could the Kanter family have been educated on what benefits were allowed? Free Enes!!! Go Cats!!

    Sad testimony..

    Left house @430am for work. Get home late (long day) @800pm and only thing on my mind the entire day is…”Get to KSR as soon as I get home, cuz…I know Daniels announced and probably an update on Enes as well”

    Sonfa!!!

    I’m left with nuthin’ except some crap I placed in Will’s Jorts Caption Post and a sweatty butt from workin’.

    Enes does NOT have a facebook account. Or a Twitter. All of them are fakes. We’ve been over this 100 times.

    It has come obvious to me that the NCAA will always play favors. Am I bias, hell yes I am. Being an UK Basketball Fan is a birth right to all who was born in Kentucky. You may be one of those Fans north west of Lexington (Louisville) and claim to bleed red, but inside your blood runs blue! Kanter is a free man and will be free to continue his life after the NCAA tries to discourage him. I hope that if the NCAA truely feels that thier decision to find Enes ineligible is correct, I hope they can live with it. $33,000.00 !!!! Pocket change to those who just won the $355,000,000.00 Lottery. Its still pocket change to the Turkish Team that knew exactly what they were doing when they convinced the Kanters to accept money above what they (Turkish)knew they NCAA would find excessive. I’m done with my comments. I’m sure they are worth no more than the paper its written on! (pocket change)

    Continued from #4 – And get his grades changed to become eligible (Bledsoe) and get a shoe$$$contract ironed out while in school (Wall).

    These wackos that are the so called NCAA ruling committee are grossly unfair and unqualified to make an objective ruling on the cruel and unusual punishment they have sent to Enes and UK. It is just unfathamable how they can let the improper deeds of the Newtons, Selbys and others go unpunished and then rule as they have when Enes and his father have done nothing that they thought was wrong or improper. The head “nut job” is Mark Emmert (ex UW Athletic Director), and the website is ncaa.org…..I have lit it up and I hope a lot of you can do the same. I feel so sorry for this kid, his family, and the entire UK community.

    Jane you ignorant slut. The game’s over, Louisville got its ass kicked. Go back to the little junior college down the road and trim your line beard before you go blow your boyfriend.

    30. Hey Troll. Doesn’t is suck knowing that no matter how much money any of these kids take and no matter who is eligible and who isn’t, none of it will be as bad as the fact that your coach banged a skank on a restaurant table and then paid to have her baby aborted……and then got DOMINATED on his home floor by his arch rival? LOL

    if this case is so important because of its impact on future european players and their eligibility, and its gone on this long, the way that the appeal committee feels it should hear kanter speak is by conference call? you’ve got to be kidding me…what? they couldn’t find the time to drive/fly to lexington to hear the kid speak for himself or vice versa. we all know how horribly awkward conference calls are, plus there’s a language barrier. nice job ncaa…conference call?
