John Calipari was asked about Olivier Sarr during a Zoom call with two pages of reporters on Wednesday, and his response was positive.

Cal couldn’t offer much help in expectations for the timeline of the NCAA’s decision on Sarr, but he did admit he is comfortable in his expectations for what the decision will be.

I feel good about Olivier’s situation,” Calipari said of his Wake Forest transfer big man. “It’s just going through channels. We’ll hear when we hear, but I feel comfortable with it.”

‘We’ll hear when we hear,’ we hear it so many times in these cases. The good news so far is the NCAA has been very generous in its eligibility decisions. Sarr’s will hopefully go in his favor, but in the meantime, we wait…

    Emmert has quietly created a dictatorship and has managed to get his salary raised to near $4 mill, even though he is unqualified for the job.
    His vendetta continues endlessly against Calipari, and now we are into full Enes
    Kanter territory with Zion ineligibility being ignored and Wade and Self recruiting as usual.

      Yep, we continue to wait on word about Sarr; meanwhile LSU gets a waiver for Washington center Bryan Penn-Johnson even though their request was after Olivier’s paperwork was submitted. Will Wade and a strong ass offer to the ncaa, no doubt.
      The ncaa and their favoritism and selective enforcement should become extinct; and, Wade and Emmert should be collecting unemployment.

    There is really nothing else Cal can say. He is at the mercy of scummy Emmert who obviously doesn’t care a bit for him. Emmert seem like a petty little man
