I wrote Turner. First time I've ever done that. This sickens me. We've been double-crossed.
Long live Inez Perez!

For those of us who are newer SMU fans and not as knowledgable as some of you insiders, what is it about our admissions process that can cause ncaa qualifiers to not be accepted? Surely the coaches/recruiting coordinator/high school liason know what SMU requires to be eligible? Facts not opinions please. Is there a lot of academic fraud that the SMU people are worried about or is it they don't want to admit kids and invest $50,000 anually toward their education only to see them play a year or two, not be able to do the academic work and then be ineligible and back on thestreet with no degree after having been used by the coaches to win a few extra games with the $50,000 investment down the drain.

You guys are hilarious. IF June were to leave b/c of this stuff, he'd be a wuss of the highest order. It may [deleted] him off to no end, but he should have done some due diligence. Doherty has been absolutely KILLED by this stuff over the past few years. Same w/every other coach since the DP.

You folks are acting like scorned school girls, when this stuff has been common knowledgee forever. Jones should have known what he was getting into, and not lean on handshake nonsense.
“When I first committed to SMU, I thought it would take a couple of years of building. But with these players coming in, we should make a run. We have a lot of heavy hitters. It could get real ugly for a lot of teams we play.”- Jalen Jones

The rumors are true: Darryl Jackson has been denied admission to SMU, despite qualifying in both GPA and his standardized test score. He said he has had no legal or off-the-field issues, and said no specific reason for the denial was given.

The 6-foot-7, 299-pound Jackson had other options for schools, including BCS schools like Oregon, Arizona State and Utah, who sought his services. When asked when he signed in late March why he chose SMU, despite suggestions from friends that he should go to a bigger school, Jackson said he simply "knew SMU is the school for me."

"That school is amazing," Jackson said. "The first thing that stood out to me was the facilities. I loved the coaches — (head) Coach (June) Jones is a character, and he obviously has a lot of character — I love that guy. (Offensive line) Coach (Adrian) Klemm is great, too. I want to play for him."

Jackson said at the time that he liked the way the SMU coaches treat their players on and off the field.

"I like how they joke around, but when practice comes around, they switch into serious mode," he said. "The academics are amazing. A lot of coaches talk to you about their schools, they lie a little, but these coaches want what's in your best interest. They're straight with you."

Jackson said that his denied admission was appealed, and that he holds no grudge toward the coaching staff. Jackson now finds himself scrambling to find another school (with the help of SMU coaches), but most Div. I-A schools have filled up their allotment of scholarships, and the deadline for joining a team at many junior colleges already has passed.

"No way," he said when asked if he harbors any resentment toward Jones and his staff. "They have been great — they have stood by me through this whole thing. They have done everything they can to get me in — they've been great. This was just an administration thing."

can someone give an update on the proposed ad in the DMN calling out Turner? Who is behind this and how can I help??

Just left a message with Turner's secretary and sent an email last night. How many times can I get my hopes up about SMU athletics only to see them crumble. Talk about beating a dead horse.
