Can you simply convert an athletic scholarship to an academic scholarship? When i was in school Dement tried to run off my friend who was a really good but not exceptional student. My friend told him. I am a senior. You can dog me in practice, not play me. I won't leave and I don't have the money to pay for SMU on my own. He said stayed on scholarship.

Yes, you can. The rule may have changed since Dement was here. There’s no reason that we shouldn’t be doing this and shedding 1-2 guys on the roster right now to upgrade the talent level. It’s malpractice that we’re not, but it’s also par for the course with the Self-Imposed Janktion. It’s especially rich that he spent three years whining about NCAA sanctions and then proceeds to light (at least) two scholarships on fire right as we get off of probation.

“A Medical Exemption is less common than a Medical Redshirt. This option allows those who suffer severe injuries and can no longer participate in collegiate athletics an opportunity to still have their education paid for. This allows the schools athletic director the option to continue paying for an injured athletes scholarship or providing them with financial aid. This is a huge protection plan for athletes who get injured. They can still receive the same amount of financial aid, despite suffering a incapacitating injury. A Medical Exemption is also beneficial for college programs, as they do not count towards their total scholarship limit.”

You have to have a medical problem to get a medical exception, do you not?

Both of the players in question have had significant injury issues in the past 1-2 seasons

Pretty sure SMU has or had a policy of keeping "non-performing" scholarship athletes on to graduate or moving them to academic scholarships or some sort of grant arrangement. Not sure about now. Knew a couple of guys on the football team that Cavan had run off the team that could not afford to pay their own way and they had grants and graduated.

Exactly. It can be done while doing right by the player and letting them stick around and earn their degree. Jank is just too lazy to put in the effort necessary to find some guys out there who could upgrade our talent level.

Question for the Jankers—why are you OK with this?

I believe J-Frog was offered an academic scholarship when Brown decided he wasn't a good fit for the team. He decided he wanted to play and transferred out but had the option of graduating from SMU.

I believe Douglas (and maybe also Ray) is among the highest GPAs on the team. I have no knowledge of hope that impacts these specific cases, but coaches in all sports have to be aware of their APR, so maybe that's a factor here?

GPA doesn’t really matter for APR. It’s just scored on whether or not guys are progressing (I.e passing and graduating) academically. I don’t think there’s any difference APR wise between a 2.6 and 4.0.

Well it looks like if I’m not complain about the current state of the program then there is absolutely no interest from anyone. Not a single post or new thread in a week. Incredibly sad. However, maybe mustangxc is compiling scouting reports on Dayton and Arizona St. to discuss with the board?? SMU Basketball 2020.

So we will have at least five open scholarships next cycle, and the more likely number will be six or seven. Yet we only have a limited number of reported offers out to 2021 HS prospects and there’s no indication we’re close on any. Does that concern anyone?

Make no mistake—the momentum around this program is dead, dead, dead. Jank killed it in a way that makes you wonder if he’s getting paid by TCU or UH boosters on the side to sabotage this thing.
