Drew Franklin’s Mug Shots Want Afternoon Notes


Our buddy Kenny Owens found out that Drew Franklin was harboring a little secret and made your favorite blogger the first person to ever be the fan of the day six times in a single setting.  And, before offer your feedback, I’m going with 4,2,5,6,1,3.

A few notes…

 – UK had their regular day-before-the-game media session with Coach Cal this afternoon and UK’s head man declined when asked to comment on the Kanter situation.  It’s not much of a change in operation as Cal hasn’t really said much outside of his insinuation a few weeks ago that something could come soon, but he did again reiterate one of his few comments on the Turkish big man’s case.  Cal again said that if Kanter was ruled ineligible and the family decided to sue, he would support that, but made it clear that he doesn’t want it to come to that.  It’s still tough to see what the grounds for that lawsuit would be, but it appears the possibility is still there.

 – Cal also continued the theme of this week’s media sessions of challenging each player to grow their game.  He said that he’s working with Hood, Polson, Vargas and Poole individually as he searches for that extra one or two guys to expand the depth.  He also noted that he wants Doron Lamb to find more fire on the court, especially in rebounding.  On the subject of Terrence Jones, Cal said that he still wants him to play with more emotion, but his play is the least of the their worries right now.

 – The brief session also acknowledged the growing practice villain:  The Treadmill.  Calipari said that it’s not just Terrence Jones who is hitting the exercise equipment when his effort slips.  Darius Miller and Eloy Vargas have had their chance to “be George Jetson” as Cal said, which is particularly amusing in the case of his boy Eloy.  The set the dial at 16 miles per hour for 30 seconds if you want to try it at home.

 – Interesting note on the bowl game:  For all they hype we are hearing about Pitt’s running game, UK actually has more yards per game, yards per carry and touchdowns.  But, they aren’t playing our defense, so that’s probably why Pitt’s ground game is getting love.

 – In case you missed today’s radio show, here it is.  They talked about sports and stuff.

    i bet they don’t rule for another month again. and when they do, they’ll rule him ineligible again. then we should all wear out the websites, phone lines, email addresses, and anything else we can to bring down the dictatorship that is the NCAA.

    the perfect ending to the Enes situation … no announcement made this week… Tuesday night, three minutes into the game, Enes takes off his warmups and heads to the scorers table … to the loudest roar ever heard in Rupp

    The grounds would be that Kanter was ruled ineligible when he thinks he should be eligible. Every person around him is knowingly taking part in illegal activities yet they’re being cleared.

    The difference in all the cases is that Kanter took the legal route while everyone else is knowingly going against the rules. He was allowed to be given money. The NCAA says that is ok. The amount of money is the problem.

    Doesn’t take a lawyer to figure it out.

    I don’t understand why the NCAA keeps dragging their feet in the mud if they know they will declare him in-eligible yet again. It shouldn’t take 48-72 hours to announce the same thing they have agreed upon all along! Frustrating…the NCAA is a monopoly that operates solely in its own best interests. It is now looked at as a joke and that’s sad. Too bad there isn’t a group that could step in and correct the corrupt actions. This has more to do with the Maggette, Clemson, OSU, Auburn, and potentially Bruce Pearl rulings then Enes Kanter. If the fact that he played minutes for a pro team is the ultimate factor then that needs to be stated because the other reasons are just BS!

    When they rule him ineligible again (let’s be realistic here, 0-3 is unlikely to be 1-4), Cal should dress him and let him play 1 game! Let him play 35+ minutes in Rupp and deal with the NCAA taking that win away from them. I think this would be awesome, and I don’t think anyone would give a damn about taking a loss just to see him play once. I think it would be a huge statement to make as well; I would do it!

    37. not really, they ruled once, it was released and then after that you have Jeff Goodman saying that we lost the appeal, but something tells me jeff Goodman doesnt know anything, he has zero connections about anything else. Now, I dont think it looks good for us, but the ncaa has not ruled SEVERAL times and UK kept a lid on it.

    if they rule him ineligable then they should keep apealing it so at least Jorts has him to practice against. I mean if all he has is His Boy Eloy to go against, well… that can only make him worse.

    Okay, grounds. Due process (see #17 above), but I dunno, Enes received notice and an opportunity to be heard, and no court is going to substitute its judgment for that of the Reinstatement Committee if there’s any discretion involved. Decision was unsupported by substantial evidence or lacked any rational basis. Also, the NCAA did not follow its own policy when it refused to consider any (all) of the mitigating circumstances presented, thereby treating Enes differently than other student-athletes or prospective student-athletes who successfully had their eligibility reinstated with such considerations. Yeah, disparate treatment. We’re not arguing Equal Protection, just the consistent treatment of student-athletes and member institutions, which I believe the NCAA is obliged to provide under the Tark case.

    That’s off the top of my head. I know Matt poo-poos the idea of a suit, but I sure wouldn’t let him be the final word. I’d want a second opinion from someone with expertise in the field. No offense, Matt. I’m sure you agree.

    The Kanter’s should sue the NCAA. With all of the BS rulings coming out this year with zero consistency. Let him pay the money back just like Selby did.

    NCAA rules state that a player has to sit out a 1:1 ratio of games played for professional team. If this includes sitting the bench, then (not sure how many games the Turks had) they could say “Eligible, after sitting out 90 games or 3 years worth.” Right? I know he only “played” minutes in 9 games, but he was dressed and on the bench for 3 years, thus if you asked him if he played for team such-and-such, the answer would be “yes” regardless of if he got in the game.

    Right now Polson “plays” for Kentucky, even if he hadn’t gotten into a single game, for instance.

    46 is that actually a rule? if so, what is the big deal about the money, shoot PPat has only played a few pro games and he still has eligibilty, can he come back and siut up for the Cats?

    The NCAA has said (and will no doubt say again) that the difference between Enes Kanter and Cam Newton is that, regardless of Newton’s father’s intentions or actions, he never actually received any money whereas Kanter did. That’s fair enough. All parties involved seem to agree that Kanter received $33k “in excess”. Kanter’s family stated that $20k of that money was used to pay for his education and the remaining $13k has been sitting in the bank. If Fenerbahce had paid that money *DIRECTLY* to the persons/institutions who provided Kanter’s education, it would have been deemed an allowable expense. Now the rules are the rules but that’s a technicality in my book and it makes absolutely no sense to me that the NCAA would not consider the “intention to professionalize” in this case. Enes Kanter had the chance to make MILLIONS of dollars playing basketball in Turkey and decided against it. MILLIONS. If he passed that up to come here, do people really believe that he and his family would have knowingly accepted $33k to pay for educational expenses if they had any idea that it would make him ineligible to the do the very thing he passed up MILLIONS of dollars to do? His father is a PHYSICIAN. I seriously doubt that they couldn’t afford to pay $33k (or the $20k that was actually spent) out of their own pocket. You can argue whether he’s really here to get a college education or not but at worst, he’s no different than most 5 star basketball recruits majoring in ‘general studies’ or ‘sports administration’ while they put in their time in the college system before becoming eligible for the NBA draft. We’ve all seen and heard the ridiculous eligibility decisions that the NCAA has made in the past few months. It’s understandable for people to look at those situations and then look at the NCAA’s stance on Enes Kanter and ask WTF? The NCAA is obviously aware of that since they felt it necessary to issue a press release over the Christmas holidays defending their decisions. It’s really unfortunate for Kanter, UK, and college basketball fans in general that he won’t ever get to play.

    From NCAA website, on Enes: “The reinstatement staff considers a number of factors when deciding each case. These include the nature and seriousness of the violation; any impermissible benefits received; the student-athlete’s level of responsibility; any mitigating factors presented by the university; applicable NCAA guidelines; and any relevant case precedent.”

    Note “the student-athlete’s level of responsibility”; he was 14-16 years old, how can that NOT be a major factor here?

    47 – yes, it’s a rule, but there’s much more to it. PPat’s agent, how much money he’s taken, contract rules, etc etc. I’m not a rules expert, mind you, but the fact that he played for the Turk club is not the issue.

    Cal didn’t know about any of the following;

    -Marcus Camby being paid a ton of money to come to a crappy school.
    -Derek Rose scoring 12 on his ACT twice, then took the test in Detroit, which is not where he is even from, and passed with flying colors.
    -Eric Bledsoe.
    -Professional basketball players cannot play in the NCAA.

    And that’s a fact. How in the hell was cal supposed to know any of this????? Leave Cal alone, stop this witch hunt.

    I’m not sure if a law suit would be legit action at this point in time. What every conference should do is withhold any and all the sports revenues from the NCAA. Then each conference sets up their own governing body comprised of Former ADs of conference schools, BUT they have to have a time period of 6 years away from the school in order to be on that committee. Never should there be a “GRAY” area, it’s black and white. Be it goes for you or it doesn’t. Folks like Pearl who lied to the S.E.C.G.B., FIRED right then and there. No more kids getting money from outside sources as in Selby. AAU team will be under the direction of said governing body.
