Coming from someone that graduated from the very prestigious academic institution, Southern Arkansas.Steve Forbes comments:
“Why would you put all this time and hard work towards a degree at a great academic school like Wake Forest to then settle for a degree from Kentucky?”
LOL. Shots fired.
But you make fun of the 40-0 threads. In 2015 Kentucky had a damned good chance of doing it.
Sorry but that was one hell of a team.
Let me know the next time a team goes 38-0 and are in the final four.
I'm pretty sure UK beat Auburn by a combined 70 points that season. Fvcking Wisconsin...
The media very much disagrees with this post.
The media should probably do better research. Here's a list of players coming from power conferences that sat out, and ones that were granted immediate eligibility. Looks like it's pretty close to 50-50.
So yes, it's not a sure thing that he'll be available in 2021. But certainly a much better shot at a waiver if your coach leaves. And I'm guessing some of these players, like Antwann Jones, were persuaded by their coach to not to seek a waiver, because playing time would be sparse.

I figured you would have some good stats...Thank you for the research
UNC fan posted a tweet from Keion Brooks' dad that all but said we would be adding another player. Assuming a big man. But to be honest, Sarr is kind of make or break for our season. With him, we could be final four bound. Without him, sweet sixteen exit could very well happen.UK can't bank on him being eligible, obviously. The smart thing for them to do is get another big or two. By time they find out the status of Sarr's availability for 2021, all of the other bigs would have already committed.
Him being cleared probably depends on the school he left usually. If they give him the ok to be immediately eligible then he’ll be good to go. Quentin Grimes was immediately eligible because Self and KU gave the ok for it. If Wake Forest doesn’t support him being immediately eligible then he should have to show a reason other than Manning being fired to be immediately eligible. Either way there is usually a strong chance the player will be eligible immediately.
