I can see Polee and Pelle in a few years wondering why they're not any better than they were when they arrived.
BTW, Kanter is a HUGE blow to UK this year. Remember they lost essentially all their bigs to the draft . With Kanter ineligible they only brought in Eloy Vargas and Terrence Jones, and the talk was that Jones was essentially told he'd be playing the 3 at UK which is why he chose to drop UW(who would have played him at the 4). So guess where Jones will be playing for UK this year, the 4 of course.
They only have 3 on the roster 6'8" or taller and one is a 6'10" senior who barely played the last 2 seasons, the others are Jones and Vargas. They still have talent obviously but they really needed Kanter inside.
They're appealing but it seems unlikely the NCAA will change their opinion, he's a pro and has been for some time.
