Joe McKnight is academically ineligible

Uh oh! Running back sensation, Joe McKnight, can't play. Well, he can eventually play again, but not anymore this spring. When McKnight dropped a class last week, his services were rendered "unavailable", as listed as academically ineligible. Once McKnight gets the academics in order, he can rejoin the team in the fall.

Should there be cause for concern? Well, yes and no. Yes, because anytime a player struggles academically during the offseason, you would think those struggles only get worst, when traveling, games and practices are tossed into the mix for the regular season. Chauncey Washington is a player that struggled with Academics. And as you can see, the bulk of his Trojan career was spent off the field.
