When the NCAA issued their ruling on John Wall yesterday (no Morehead for you!), it went down as what might be perhaps the most underwhelming news in the history of UK news. However, had UK landed another prospect that ended up at a different trendy Final Four pick, things could have been much worse. Former Clyde recruit Deniz Kilicili got bent over and spanked by the NCAA yesterday to the tune of a 20-game suspension, due to him playing on a team with a professional Turkish basketball player….or something. There really is no lessen to be learned from this except that the NCAA, despite all the hard work done by the Obama administration to improve global relations, still does not trust foreigners. And, it’s better to associate with a former agent than someone who looks like this.
Go Cats. Go USA.
