Drake wears his Kentucky basketball super fandom on his sleeve.

Sometimes it bites the Wildcats in the ass.

For the second time, UK has been hit with a NCAA violation because a player on the team posed for a photo with Drake.

The latest incident actually occured last summer when star UK guard Tyler Ulis posted a picture of himself with Drake after Drizzy played a show in Chicago.

Since it was on the Gram for all to see, Kentucky had no choice but to self report the violation, causing Ulis to be declared ineligible.

Luckily the NCAA ruled it a Level III violation, the next-to-least serious violations that can occur. So Ulis' eligibility was restored in time for the beginning of the season.

The incident came to light after the Kentucky Herald-Leader filed a freedom of information act.

In 2014, Drake cost UK basketball another Level III violation for posing for a photo with a potential recruit. At the time the university sent Drake a cease-and-desist letter. But it appears he's neither ceasing nor desisting.
