re: Josh Mcneil update 12/20/2012

Its called a non committable offer

Cmon yall have heard of this before.

I understand its an odd practice, and not always fair
But i do understand when academics are involved and the offer is valid as long as certain conditions are met.
"hey kid we'd love to have you on this lsu team, but you gotta get your work done in the classroom and qualify before we accept your commitment"

I know & I said he likely would, that is why he transferred to a prep school for half the year

It might shock you, but I still think until I hear different, that he qualifies

Yeah but it is different coming from HS versus JUCO. There aren't many HS classes that LSU won't accept. Graduating HS is graduating HS.

Also, if a player doesn't qualify out of HS, you can always send him to JUCO or a prep academy like Hargrave, and then sign him again in six months.

Different story for JUCO. First of all, if JUCO's can't get it done in the classroom, they are more or less finished. There is not another JUCO to send them to.

Secondly, if we want the JUCO guys there in the Spring, and they didn't take the right classes to make that happen, we're SOL and so are they. Josh McNeil sounds Phil Loadholt all over again.

All indications suggest this isn't the case, unfortunately. The semester has more or less ended, now. You do realize that, right? If McNeil doesn't have the right classes now, he won't have the right classes, period.

Well from what I understand it's not a grade issue but a credit issue like it was with Fanaika. All he has to do is take the right classes in the spring and he can be here for summer/fall camp. Is that about the gist of it?

I'll say this 1 more time:

DON'T be surprised to see him qualify & enroll regardless of what you hear right now

ppl don't wanna compare his to the Eddie Lacy situation, but it is very similar, just swap schools

I was right about him flipping....

Didn't we just have an open spot for an EE? I think this is why Mcneil wants in.

The paysites haven't commented on any of this yet, but I do know he wanted to be an EE, if I'm not mistaken.

Maybe since now Leslie can't enroll early, this opens a spot.


Wrong, paysites are saying he wants to enroll early but will have a hard time ee at any sec school.

All scholarship offers have conditional language in them so the coaches can back out


This is what some people don't understand. Non commitable offer is for the school, and not the player. The school is saying that we are not going to committ to giving you a scholarship until you meet all of our guidelines - not the other way around.
