I can't imagine any scenario where Julian quits on his team and does it under the guise of an injury.

Why do you turn everything into a Conspiracy Theory??? The injury is not that bad and he may only be wearing a boot for protection and to keep weight off of his ankle.


I wouldn't say it's a conspiracy. In the recent past we were told LoVett was day to day and he never played again. But I heard from a reliable source close to the program tonight that he will be ready for game 1, so that makes me feel much better. And Maher, I haven't seen any of those but now I feel like I have to LOL...the last one is already factual.


1. Posters here said that Lovett was milking it.
2. No point at all playing Julian in an intra squad scrimmage. If CMA did it would be a ridiculously short sighted decision.
3. Colleges don't have to disclose injuries and more and more even in pro sports it's becoming more vague and hidden why players are out.

Me neither...but it's not that uncommon for teams to downplay injuries that turn out to be worse than they admitted. Just glad he is apparently not going to miss games.

The severity of LoVett's injury was not downplayed. It was his lack of commitment to the program that was downplayed.

When was the last time a player showed up in a boot and on crutches, and it turned out to be a minor injury? In all my years of playing and watching sports, I don't ever remember seeing that happen. Guess there's a first time for everything.

I’m not a doctor but I did stay at a Holiday Inn recently.
Boots and crutches are pretty standard right after injuries. I’ve seen players same game come out with both and nothing seriously be wrong. Crutches to stay off the foot ankle or knee and I think the boot reduces swelling.

Also let’s remember we technically don’t know how long he’s been hurt.

Maybe it's also because, as a long suffering SJU fan, I've learned to always expect the worst and hope for the best. It helps me keep what semblance of my sanity I still possess. I'll still take a boot and crutches(was it ever confirmed it was Julian?) as a not very good sign, and hope to be pleasantly surprised.

ESPN game tracker has JC with a 98.47% chance to survive his ankle injury so fear not my good man Monte! ;) :)

Are we sure it wasn’t for an endorsement deal? Nike crutches?
