Enes Kanter ruled out of Kentucky's practices

The NCAA has ruled Kentucky's Enes Kanter ineligible to participate in practice until his eligibility hearing finishes playing out.

Originally, he was granted a 45 day grace period to workout with the team while they prepared for a preseason trip to Canada, and once that ran out, he was given an extension. That extension came due on Thursday.

Its a tough break for the 6'11" freshman from Turkey, especially if the NCAA's ruling continues past the October 15th start of practice. Its tough enough for a freshman to pick up a new college system without missing time. Missing the start of practice -- when the team's offenses and defenses are put in -- is only going to put Kanter farther behind.

Its not all bad, however.

It should allow the "UnderKanter" to work on his future as a pro wrestler.
