Following a weekend of rumors, junior running back John Emery Jr is confirmed to be out for the entire 2021 campaign, according to Head Coach Ed Orgeron.
Yes, that's right....I can't believe it either.
After months of Coach O saying "John's doing great on his academics" etc upon etc always bringing up John's improving academics when rattling off the performance of each running back on roster, Emery Jr is now remarkably ineligible for this year.
All throughout spring and fall camp, Coach O would say "Ty ran the ball well today, Armoni looks good, Corey looks good and John's doing great in the classroom"....which now, in retrospect, sounds like Orgeron is really saying "I'm worried about Emery Jr's academics"....
It's an awful blow for both John and LSU's running game, both taking yet another hit after hoping Emery Jr could be at least ready for the start of the SEC schedule vs Mississippi State.
