Chris Otule of Marquette sheds light on condition – JSOnline

During the second half of the Marquette Golden Eagles‘ 77-76 loss at No. 24 Vanderbilt last night, ESPN2 analyst Mark Gottfried made mention of the fact Chris Otule has only one eye.

Judging by the amount of feedback I received during and after the game, it’s a topic that caught most Golden Eagles fans off-guard.

Chris Otule-Marquette

Otule has worn protective goggles since arriving at MU in 2008, but I think it was assumed it was because one of his eyes had been injured previously.

So prior to practice on Thursday, Otule set the record straight.

I saw this young man play earlier this week when Marquette played at Vanderbilt.  I had no clue that he had one eye, only that he was wearing goggles.

I thought he played a good game as someone without that challenge and I am even more impressed now that I know the rest of the story.

Best wishes to Chris Otule and Marquette the rest of this year.
