LSU linebacker Jones, 3 others ruled ineligible

Quote:
LSU will play the remainder of the season without Tahj Jones, one of its most experienced linebackers, as well as three other players, coach Les Miles confirmed Wednesday.

Miles was asked about reports concerning the players' academic eligibility during Wednesday morning's SEC coaches teleconference.

Although he did not disclose specific details, Miles acknowledged that Jones, offensive lineman Evan Washington, tight end Tyler Edwards and linebacker D.J. Welter would not play this season.

"Those guys will not play this year," Miles said. "I don't know if I can tell you specifics."

Miles announced ahead of LSU's season opener that Jones, long considered a starter at linebacker, had been ruled academically ineligible but was undergoing an appeal. The junior has not played in either of the Tigers' two games this season.

Fellow junior Luke Muncie presumably will continue to start as the Tigers' strong-side linebacker in Jones' place.

Miles also announced that sophomore defensive end Jordan Allen will miss the remainder of the season with an ACL injury.

Too bad that LSU's schedule is still pretty easy.

So pretty much the big LSU expose that puts Miles in hot water is about a year or two away

Re: LSU linebacker Jones, 3 others ruled ineligible

At least they oversigned!

Southern Cal has an NCAA limit of 75 scholarship players, but LSU is now at 74 with this. It just goes to show you how overrated that whole issue is. Steve Spurrier used to say he could win with 75 players and that that should be the limit for all teams.

125 players per team, 85 on scholarship, dress out only 60 in conference games and you can still only play 11 at a time.

I think the point is that if USC was in the same situation they'd be down to 64.
