I think his claim was that the football admin "accidentally" put in in the wrong classes

There is just no excuse whatsoever for losing eligibility over academics. Those kids get their own academic center with 24/7 access to tutors. They get the department lobbying for them. If a kid can gain admission to a state university and learn a playbook, then he can avail himself of these resources and stay academically eligible. He had to positively tried to not pass his classes. The fact that he had to get bailed out at all says everything. Ask yourself...did anyone else in the RB room have this problem?

Sucks. You have to try very very very hard to not remain eligible at LSU, not even factoring in the perks of athletic life.

wonder if this would’ve gone differently for Bama, Ohio St, or Clemson…

I would say it would have, especially since the NCAA director changed his allegiance to one of those you mentioned.

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

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.

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.

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.
