Athletes have to earn at least 40% of the credit hours required for graduation by the start of their third year in order to be eligible per NCAA requirements. That means in order for Emery to be eligible (without a waiver) he has to have 48 credit hours toward his degree by fall of 2021.
so 12hrs a semester? And he enrolled in June of 19. So at least 2 summer sessions.

I know it’s tough to balance both football and school but it’ seems that LSU, and emery, were playing it too close to the edge if one semester throws him off. Guess he thought he’d be going pro after this year.

Attorney Don Jackson said Emery was an honor student during last semester and fell a few credit hours short due to complications with his grandmother. Attorney is requesting reconsideration and trying to get him eligible by MSST game.

Wow! That's a powerful legal argument! I suggest adding, "The dog ate his homework."

The thing that makes this thread great is that the OP stipulated that he, himself, is an attorney, making his opinion carry a little more weight. If this is all his lawyer has Emery would have been better off hiring an actor.

My grandmother died of cancer and my uncle committed suicide while he had cancer when I was in undergrad.

LSU showed me zero leniency or emotion. I even wrote an essay and got all my papers signed by my professors on why I should be allowed to withdraw from school past the drop date and they still denied me. I had to accept what ever grades I got for the rest of the semester.


I wonder how many pieces of shite had to lie to the university for them to take such a cold stance on students.

re: emery's attorney just on finebaum
I hear the attorney’s story and then hear the story of Archie Manning and kinda shake my head

Archie went home for a break and found his father dead of suicide. He took care of the whole thing, cleaned it all up, went back to school and didn’t miss a class or a game. He even played with a broken arm.

I hear Emery’s story and it’s spun the way a good attorney should spin it but the bottom line is that Emory failed to do what he had to do academically and wants to blame covid and some family medical issues which all suck but life goes on…. We have to do what we have to do. No excuses.

I rule against Emory too on this.

Finebaum is just like some of the idiots on this board.
They try to blame everything on Orgeron just because they don’t like him for whatever reason.
Fuk Finebaum. He us just like a Weatherman. About as accurate as a coin flip and has zero accountability.

re: emery's attorney just on finebaum
Yup.

So by entering his Junior year, he needs to have 48 hours completed towards his degree. Also they have to meet GPA requirement and pass at least 6 hours a semester.

He would have had Summer 19, Fall 19, Spring 20, Summer 20, Fall 20, Spring 21, Summer 21. Assuming a full time load of 12 hours in the spring/fall and 6 hours in the summer, that would mean he would have had to take 66 hrs of classes.

So for him to get 48 hrs passed... he could have not passed 18 hours, or 6 classes, and still be ok.

If he failed 6 classes in 7 terms... he probably should NOT be on the team.

I would imagine some players only take 6 hours during the fall

They have to take 12 unless they have less than 12 needed for their undergrad degree, then they can take whatever they need to graduate.

I would imagine they'd have to take at least 12 so that they are a full time student. They are under scholarship, and i'm sure it says they have to be a full time student to be under scholarship.

This board would be livid if a Bama player got eligible after using a sad story for why they fell behind on their obligations that were known beforehand

It might be a minor distinction, but from what I can tell they don’t actually have to take 12 hours that apply toward their degree every semester. They just have to stay full-time and get 48 hours toward their degree by the start of year 3.

I say this because I could see a scenario where some football players take the minimum hours “toward their degree” in the fall and fill the remainder of their schedule with BS classes that don’t actually earn them anything, but result in easy A’s with minimal effort. If so, they might wind up with 12 credit hours but only, say, 6-9 that apply toward their degree. This would obviously require them to plan on making up degree progress over the summer and/or intersession.

I could be mistaken though. It probably doesn’t make much difference other than to point out that players who are likely to struggle academically are, presumably, more likely to take the bare minimum. So he might not have actually failed/dropped as many classes as you would think. But the end result is the same.

sorry for the loss but no, part of the college education(I know, it's kind of a joke for most scholarship athletes,) experience is learning how cope with personal issues such as that and still continue to meet your obligations/responsibilities

i'm a lawyer, and i gotta say - emery has the right lawyer to plead his case. no one could have listened to him and not by angry about emery being denied eligibility. i hope the NCAA hears it like everyone else will.


Don Jackson taught my sports law courses (amateur and pro) and dude knows his shite. May not always agree with him but knows his shite.

This is something that many students have to deal with every year and most never get leniency. Why should Emery be any different? Sounds like some here want special treatment for football players.

Ya think? Buddy, they didn’t come here to play school. They are football players we pretend are students. The whole thing is a sham. The University - an institute of higher learning - is now pushing gambling! Think on that for a moment.
