Ross Dellenger with Sports Illustrated is reporting that the NCAA has denied John Emery Jr.'s latest appeal to overturn his academic ineligibility.

Dellenger says that Emery's attorney Don Jackson will pursue other options to get the LSU running back eligible.

Emery has lived up to the definition of football bust in every sense of the word both and off the field. What a disappointing recruiting class that turned out to be jesus.

And TDP went 51 yards on 13 touches for 3.9 each against Moo State which doesn't set the world on fire I'm starting to have serious concerns about not being able to run the football. Maybe Jake Peetz is just not showing his hand and letting Max rack up all of these TD's because he can and it's working?

How could he possibly fail a class Kinesiology 101 ?

Emery probably took enough credits of school classes last semester but because of personal problems and not doing well in some classes he dropped classes he was getting Fs in. He finished the semester with a shortage of credits and could not take enough in the summer. You are allowed a specific number of credits you can take and it was just not enough.

He would have been done better if he was caught with weed and a gun in his car and dealing with a district attorney in North Louisiana than having to deal with the NCAA.

Sorry…..Emery is old enough to be an adult….the young man needs to take care of his own business. This can be a real learning event for Emery.

What exactly did he do? Im an Auburn fan but other athletes at various schools got waivers etc. NCAA ruling is so arbitrary.

This makes no sense. Athletes get priority with scheduling of classes. Anyone else remember using Reggie to schedule the classes or having to call. Either this guy is extremely unintelligient or someone decided to screw him over. Or both
