re: My formal apology to Jared Foster - Adam Banks
[quote]Explain. My understanding was the grade was enough to "pass" but not enough to remain eligible. (toward your major and other factors) [/quote] His grade was enough to pass and remain eligible before the [u]grade[/u] appeal. LSU compliance was just a bunch of idiots and declared him ineli...

re: Foster wins appeal!!! - Adam Banks
[quote]Because reporters are always right. I misunderstood you at first. See my edit. You were still wrong [/quote] Hannigriff is 100% correct about the situation. Foster got his grade changed AND was never ineligible as LSU compliance cant get its head out its ass. LSU compliance hates LSU s...

re: My formal apology to Jared Foster - Adam Banks
[quote]So if you know (or strongly suspect at the time) that he will be ineligible for the stretch run, why waste time with him in the lineup when you could be breaking in his replacement? I'm pretty sure every coach in CPM's situation would have sat him last weekend. [/quote] Every coach would ...

re: My formal apology to Jared Foster - Adam Banks
[quote]Maybe I misunderstood the explanation in the other thread but this didn't have anything to do with his grade being final/not final, or changing, did it? The grade is the same as it was last week, it's just that it was determined to be acceptable under a rule that is only applied in rare cases...

re: If Foster wins his ineligibility appeal, should he be allowed back? - Adam Banks
[quote]Falsely giving out degrees, which is what you promoted, does make my degree feel less. I don't care if athletes have easy degrees. I care if my school falsely gives them out.[/quote] Well sorry to bust your bubble but Ive known non athletes to get an extra point or two to pass a class o...

re: If Foster wins his ineligibility appeal, should he be allowed back? - Adam Banks
[quote]This has to be trolling. LSU is a school. If you value athletics over the institution, then I i can't convince you otherwise.[/quote] If you think that 99% of the football, basketball and baseball players are attending LSU for the academics rather than a route to further their athletic c...

re: If Foster wins his ineligibility appeal, should he be allowed back? - Adam Banks
[quote]Didn't realize you would go full retard. I have a major and law degree from LSU, and I didn't think someone would call me out on that in the name of defending an athlete who couldn't make his final grades. [/quote] Next time a firm passes on you because LSU gave some grades to an athlete...

re: If Foster wins his ineligibility appeal, should he be allowed back? - Adam Banks
[quote]I have a degree from LSU. If it's productive to lessen my degree in the name of just passing athletes, then let me know. I had to earn my degree, even as a senior. Why shouldn't he?[/quote] Well you can rest easy because giving out a couple extra general studies/sports administration de...

[quote]Yea, you're not helping anyone. Arguing that we should lower academic standards for athletes is incredibly dumb.[/quote] If you can give me any argument on how giving some of these kids a 60 instead of a 70, ESPECIALLY a senior, is in anyway productive Im all ears....

re: If Foster wins his ineligibility appeal, should he be allowed back? - Adam Banks
[quote]I hope you are just pointing out an event and not subtly blaming Mainieri for benching him this past weekend.[/quote] I am stating that in the event the appeal verdict is in favor of Foster then you cant continue to punish him for being academically ineligible when he no longer is. ...

re: If Foster wins his ineligibility appeal, should he be allowed back? - Adam Banks
[quote]And it still doesn't mean the coach doesnt know what he did and how to handle his team. Academic appeals are a whole different game.[/quote] He was kicked off the team because he was academically ineligible secondary to a grade. If the grade is found to be unjust by the system in place the...

re: If Foster wins his ineligibility appeal, should he be allowed back? - Adam Banks
[quote]We're talking about a student-athlete who has hurt the team because he didn't fulfill his duties.[/quote] ...I mean if he wins the appeal then he will have never been ineligible and will only have missed time due to Mainieri booting him off before the process was complete. He was eligible ...
