That's interesting, because I thought there was writing on the wall for all of them. Some writing just appeared later than others.

The only one that truly shocked me was actually Caraher, because while the writing on the wall was in the most readable font and biggest point size, I thought he was choosing to ignore it and was staying here to do law school and because he had a GF.

I posted in a thread before the season was over I could see up to 5 transfers (this is not including Caraher because he had already transferred).  Only 2 of the transfers really just shocked me was Williams and Cole, everybody else I could see a reason for them wanting to transfer. 

I thought Cole would have gave it another year because he started the majority of the year and he was always upbeat and spoke about how he trusted the staff and loved being here during his post game interviews and starting and coming off the bench didn't matter to him.  I thought he would improve his ball handling over the off-season and have a better senior year.

Williams was the absolute shocker to me though. He was team captain, started, team was patient with him on his injuries and always worked him back into the rotation even when they were winning, staff was always complimentary of him and trusted him to help lead the team, dad seemed to love the program, it just made no sense for him to transfer.  I like Williams, but I just don't see a program that's better than St. John's allowing him to have a bigger role than what he had here.  He could probably go down to a mid-major or really bad high major team and possibly be the 1st or 2nd option, but who wants to drop down and average 13-15 PPG on a losing team when you could be on a winning team and average 10-12 PPG.  Or maybe I have it wrong and he wants to go to like a Florida and have lesser of a role and be the 6th or 7th guy for a bigger school and feels like that experience will help him out more in the future.

When I said there was "no writing on the wall", I meant in terms of their effort on the court. I also said  with "most kids". Moore being the exception. Had you quoted my entire post, and not cherry picked, that would have been obvious to all(except maybe you).

Jeez, sorry I glossed over the first part when reading. It wasn't intentional. I am wondering what insult you edited out of your post before I could see it, though.

I was thinking about that as well, he's missed multiple games 2 years in a row with back issues.  I've never heard the staff, media, or anyone say if it's something he'll eventually always deal with and may eventually need surgery or if it was just 2 isolated incidents.  
that’s because it would be a HIPPA violation for anyone at the University to disclose GW’s medical condition unless he gives written permission. 





 


Based on my experience I can tell you that 2 subsequent back injuries like this are almost never “unrelated.” These are chronic issues that flare up every now and then and take some time to subside.

Also, schools are not an entity covered under HIPAA so they aren’t being quiet because of HIPAA, but purely because it’s not really any of our business.

please explain why you think the athletics Sports Medicine dept at SJU is not an entity bound by HIPPA regulations?
“As a matter of law, the Rule applies only to “covered entities,” which includes health plans, health care clearinghouses, and health care providers that transmit health information in electronic form in connection with covered transactions.”  As SJU does this, the HIPAA rule applies.
 Every part of an athletes medical records are part of HIPAA s well as all NCAA and institutional drug testing results, as are records from psychological services and health services. The institution has two specific HIPAA  forms which all athletes complete and they are developed and signed off by University legal counsel. When any athlete is draft eligible in any sport, HIPAA forms are also signed off by athlete and team physicians before any medical information can be released to MLB, NBA, WNBA, MLS teams.

Heard Greg finished some zoom visits this week and I expect this exploration process could conclude in next week.

I respect that he’s doing it quietly.  No top five list or ridiculous fanfare.
