re: emery's attorney just on finebaum
Wow, I just noticed this additional context from Brody Miller earlier today via Twitter:

quote:

According to Jackson, Emery fell three credit hours short.

He claims Emery only fell short because of the limit placed on the number of credit hours he could take this summer to make it up.

Then, Emery was not given a hardship waiver when others were.


No clue where Hanny got his info from LOL but he was way off.

quote:

Emery fell three credit hours short of eligibility, Jackson said. He fell behind in classes in fall 2020, which Emery and his camp are arguing came during extreme hardship in his life. Emery’s stepfather, Webster Garrison, spent much of 2020 hospitalized on a ventilator due to complications from COVID-19. Garrison suffered strokes and kidney failure, and is still struggling to regain his health.

Emery’s grandmother also died in 2020.


At any rate, I think we know all there is to know.

We'll see what the NCAA says.

Covid year was incredibly difficult for school aged people. Slack should be the rule, not the exception.
What a ridiculous and patronizing overgeneralization.

Many college students couldn't have been more excited to be living on campus or away from home and not having to attend in-person classes for the past year.

So he "only fell short" on his hours because he couldn't complete all his hours according to university policy like all other students are expected to. Then the university didn't go out of its way to offer the specific summer courses he needed to make him eligible. What a travesty of justice.

No. He “fell short” on his hours because he didn’t meet an NCAA progress-toward-degree milestone that only applies to athletes. Which is why he is requesting a waiver.. from the NCAA.

I’m fairly sure the point of that tidbit was not to complain that the university didn’t let him take more hours over the summer. It was to show that he was only 3 hours away from meeting the NCAA requirement, which likely bolsters his case for a waiver - especially if he has made up significant progress since falling behind.

ETA: I swear it sounds like some of you don’t want his waiver application to succeed.

There we have it. Case closed.

What is the deadline to apply for these waivers? What are the requirements an SA must prove (key word here) to get a waiver?



It’s the NCAA, an organization capable of clusterfricking at the highest proportions, who fricking knows.

Emery fricked up in a year that was extremely easy to frick up with a shite ton of negative external circumstances. If he’s not eligible for a hardship waiver it makes me wonder why such a thing is even available.

But sure, get so wrapped up in hating a guy you’ve never met that you can summon a little empathy. If that makes you happier have at it.

They don’t. They’ve dug in so deep on this is a symptom of LSU’s decline that they’ve turned the fricking NCAA into the good guy in their minds.

As if Ed Orgeron and the NCAA can not and have not ever been incompetent at the same time.

concern is with ncaa , not lsu

FineBaum is irritated that O isn’t going to bat for him but attorney says it’s not up to the coach so nothing wrong there.



You must be mistaken - everything is O's fault. Just ask the Rant!

Emery’s side believes extenuating circumstances over the past 18 months should result in a waiver, Jackson said. Within that time, Emery lost his grandmother to cancer, his step-father underwent a lengthy battle with COVID-19 that put him in the hospital on a ventilator and his mother tested positive for the virus. At the same time, classes moved online because of the pandemic.



Sorry bruh. We all deal with shite. Sucks he had to deal with that, but the fact that the classes were offered online made it so much easier for him. I could understand if he was home, where ever that is away from Baton Rouge and couldn’t actually attend class.
Seems to me he has very little to stand on here.

Correct. I don't. From what I know, he does not deserve it. I don't give a shite how it affects our season. His academic effort has sucked his whole time here. Skipping classes, tutoring, and basically a jerk to the academic support staff. Even after multiple "last chance" warnings. I'm sorry my sympathy is gone at this point.

re: emery's attorney just on finebaum
I mean for gods sake he only had to take 12 hours a semester, that’s assuming zero classes taken in the summer.
That’s not hard to do at all. This is what happens when you do the bare minimum and leave yourself no wiggle room for error, or extenuating circumstances.

I hope he gets reinstated but I just can’t get excited about him on the field. It would be challenging for Barry Sanders to run behind this offensive line. They all get blown off the ball every single snap. Any team with an even remotely average d-line going to eat them alive.

I mean if this is all true, I can at least understand why you might feel that way. Are you saying this based on personal knowledge or have I been under a rock when all of this was reported? Particularly the part about being a dick to the support staff.. first time I’ve read that.

Someone else alleged Emery was seeking special treatment from LSU because he plays football. I responded that if he's just asking the NCAA to reinstate him, he's not looking for special treatment from LSU. How is that nonsense?

Regular knowledge around Cox and Football Ops. He's an entitled jerk and has been since ever since he got to campus. Now LSU is now buying him the best lawyer in the country who has somehow convinced y'all he deserves your sympathy.
