Ruh Roh! Wall may be ineligible

Posted on: October 23, 2009 12:02 am
Somewhere in the middle of escorting the national championship trophy back to Lexington, Kentucky ran into a problem. Superstar freshman guard John Wall might be ineligible because his former AAU coach was a certifield agent.

Although some Kentucky fans will tell you that this season is already a "wrap", there's still a lot of issues to work out with the player that Gary Parrish has already called the Player of the Year. It might be true that Wall could be cleared soon, Kentucky could march to Indianapolis, win the national championship and celebrate like they've never won anything before.

In all seriousness, this is the last thing Kentucky fans wanted to hear. Despite the major recruiting class, John Calipari's hiring and off-court success, this season is a mission to get back to the elite level in college basketball. The NIT just doesn't cut it in Lexington, and many high profile magazines have already predicted the Wildcats will reach the Final Four this season.

Without Wall, the key piece to that Final Four run, things get a little shaky.

Ruh Roh! Wall may be ineligible

Haha no Wall.  Wouldn't that be hilarious, Dan?
Big 5 star recruit isn't even ready to go.  

Definetely. To hear some Kentucky fans talk (not all, just some) the season was already over because of Wall. Without him the likelihood of a national title is greatly diminished and their chances at the SEC crown are too.
