I hope but he isn't the type to confuse the players.  And it would be very hard to confuse the two

Has anyone else heard this?  Also why didn't 87 just post it himself?

Welcome to the overreaction part of our program, if people here think that losing a freshman bigman is the end of the world (despite our height disadvantages) I woudl like to present exhibit A: Villanova 2006. Lost their main big man to injury that offseason and rode a 4 guard lineup to the elite 8, despite their tallest player being 6'7

I recommend Buzz have the feet of all potential recruits examined and x-rayed throughly prior to signing them. Crean really screwed us over on this one.

Now Buzz has something legitimate to be emotional and cry about

I don't think it's overreaction at all.  We NEED Otule and/or McMorrow to develop for next year.  If neither of them can practice or play for the the first half of this year, it severely hurts us next year.  Just my opinion.

It may not be super critical this year (though it could be!), but now we're down to only have Burke and Hazel to practice in the post?  Seriously?

I how this is a joke. Why didn't he post this himself? He actually never posted this anywhere, so unless he sent you a pm I don't know how you are getting you information.

no joke.  the injury was confirmed by the MU Athletic Department -- it's up on CrackedSidewalks now

Hard to overreact when we are almost to the point of being unable to fill the center position. No, it isn't like we could expect a ton out of Otule, but at least he is a big body to plug in there, demand some attention and have fouls to give. With Fulce out already, this is getting ridiculous.

Again, what a shame for the Big 3. They are going to have to carry such a load this year it's unbelievable.

Hopefully Otule and Fulce can come back strong if the story is in fact true, but tough to ask them to jump right into the BEast cold. What a bummer.

Oy.  Terrible luck so far this season (can I call it a season yet?).  Thanks (but no thanks) for confirming NY.

Also to go with the overreaction, he is out a botu a month. If this had to happen anytime I'd rather it happen now sure we'll miss him for the Chicago Inv. Tennessee and Wisconsin, but the only one of those teams with legitimate big men is Wisconsin (almost illegitimate) At least now we get to see if we have any known quantities in Pat Hazel, and Dwight Burke will get plenty of work to work on his conditioning before the get into the meat of the BEast schedule. Again, we shouldn't go around here acting like Kentucky or Indiana fans. We are better then that.

Not sure where it went but Cracked Sidewalks (NY Warrior) confirmed with Mike Broeker

Chris Otule out one month with injury

We have just confirmed that freshman center Chris Otule will miss a month of action after sustaining an injury this week. The nature of injury is unclear at this point.

According to Mike Broeker, Deputy Director of Athletics at MU, the university will release more information later after speaking with the coaching staff, Otule and team doctors.

With sophomore forward Joe Fulce already out until the end of December, the Otule injury leaves Marquette with few options on the baseline. Senior center Dwight Burke and sophomore Patrick Hazel are the only two healthy post players on the roster as the season opens tonight.

No offense, but I don't think anyone was critical of anything, everyone was just looking for more information.
