Skal Labissiere still not cleared by NCAA

skalselfie

The two Jeffs over at ESPN’s college basketball offices are reporting Skal Labissiere has still not been cleared by the NCAA.

“Not yet,” Labissiere’s guardian, Gerald Hamilton, told ESPN. “We’re just trying to get everything squared away. They are asking a few questions.

“They haven’t cleared him, but we’re sticking with our faith,” he added. “There’s no real concern about anything from the Kentucky compliance people.”

When asked about the specific reason Labissiere has yet to be cleared, Hamilton told ESPN he did not wish to comment. [ESPN]

Calipari has been confident his prized big man will be ready to go for the season. He is speaking at the UK Basketball Tipoff Luncheon today, but it’s unlikely he will address ESPN’s new report.

A UK spokesman told the Courier-Journal: “We don’t confirm eligibility of any of our student-athletes until the first game. Everyone has been practicing.”

    Just tell the NCAA he’s going to Duke. Problem solved.

    Hope this is not Enes 2.0. Has anyone ever sued the NCAA? I think they are ripe for it.

    Blue Redneck… You beat me to the punch. This is shaping up to be the second chapter of the Enes Kanter story… Only because the kid is playing for Cal & UK.

      Ha! Looks like Elmer finally admitted his allegiance to Herpville. And all this time I just thought he was some redneck Cayut fan. 😉

      Cheick Diallo still hasn’t been cleared at Kansas, either….

    NCAA is racists – they don’t like foreign / international players … unless they play for Duke or Kansas or North Carolina or any other NCAA school but Kentucky.

      You obviously haven’t noticed that one of KU’s star recruits, an international player himself, hasn’t been cleared to play yet either.

      How is North Carolina not on probation with all the joke classes they have had for 20 years. NCAA is an absolute joke. They don’t even try to hide their bias.

    Any chance we can join in on that class action lawsuit that Cal and UK is going to start up against the corrupt NCAA?

      I ain’t for sure, but I hope them , Doron Lamb, and Marquis Teague play for Fort Wayne so we all can go see them play

    The NCAA recently banned a baylor recruit from playing. He is homeless and Baylor let him I’m the dorm early. So, Skal’s handler shopping him and other coaches letting the NCAA know about it could be troubling. Hopefully, Skal is punished for having an idiot, greedy handler.

      Not punished

      Unfortunately you have the truth of it. Often times in these situations its the people surrounding the young kids that try to take advantage for selfish reasons with no regard for whats best for the young man.

    No problems if he’s cleared it will be great if not we will play with out him. Problem solved.

    It’s absolutely about UK and Cal, and that’s the only reason. The NCAA doesn’t pay attention to butthurt coaches that start rumors because they lose recruits to us. That’s basically all that is, and then the media runs with it to get clicks because we’re the only team that can generate the love/hate that we do. It’s just the Jackoffs, I mean Jeff’s at espn trying to get attention away from hookerville.

    No Skal means NIT for Cal, you know what I am sayin

      If you seriously think that, then you’re more delusional than I, or anyone else, could ever help you enough to see you straight. Enjoy your Cards burning (in more ways than one, you know, bc of the hookers) and continuing their annual losing streak to the Cats this season.



    • RockyMoutainWildcat

      And since it’s clear that you’re stupid, let me clarify my joke about Louisville burning. You see, it was a double entendre, bc your program is about to get the hammer dropped on them by the NCAA, hence the first meaning of burning. The other meaning is that I’m sure the $5 hookers your staff are providing to players and recruits have STDs, so anyone unfortunate enough to have gone to one of those parties likely now has a burning sensation when they pee. And again, enjoy the annual loss in December, which we both know will happen if Skal plays or not.

    I rather him not play then worry about vacating games later on. I feel bad for the kid because he was basically pimped out like Louisville Madam’s daughters. Almost all handlers are evil and greedy. All they care about is money.

      Actually most of us thought it was crap that the NCAA would punish CA and Kansas for something his stupid family did behind his back and without his knowledge.

    If he has half a brain he doesn’t owe the Hamilton’s a dime and he never will. He is a pre-season lottery/#1 overall pick. That’s god given.

    This would be a blow. But Lee could start at the 5. Willis backs up Poy and Humphries backs up Lee. We would still have a very good starting 5, but depth would be an issue
