Bob_Bell Press Release: Embree Wants Misconception Cleared Up From the Colorado Sports Information Department: BOULDER — University of Colorado head football coach Jon Embree on Wednesday wanted to clear up some misconceptions about two of the five players he announced a day earlier who would not be returning to play this fall. Senior offensive guard Max Tuioti-Mariner and junior receiver Will Jefferson have been deemed medically unable to compete by team doctors, and the school will petition the Big 12 Conference for a permanent medical exemption for both that will enable each to continue to receive full benefits, e.g., tuition, fees, room and board, study table, etc., if they decide to continue their academic pursuits in Boulder. In essence they remain full members of the team but their scholarships would not count toward the team total. "Things have been written and implied that aren’t true about these two student-athletes," Embree said. "Will and Max will retain their scholarships and receive all the benefits that they currently have. Some have grouped the situation these two are in with three others that I did not invite back, and that is not fair to Will and Max. Clearly that is not what we released." CU currently has two players enrolled working toward their degrees who received the exemption, Jameson Davis (kicker) and Anthony Wright (cornerback) and have also filed paperwork for a third, Dakota Poole (defensive linemen), who was ruled medically ineligible late last year.
