    That is what I'm reading on another site. Apparently it is per Ringo, so I'm not sure if this is coming from Scout or what.

    Apparently, he has more academic work to do and will miss Fall Camp and the CSU game?

    Sorry to the guys who felt something was off in this situation. I completely read the delay the wrong way.

    As I said in the other thread, our WR recruiting is awful. Absolutely pitiful.

    All goes hand in hand my friend. Hawkins preaches they go after the right guys. No way to spin the WR situation, it falls at the feet of the coaches.

    Oh definitely, but I think a lot of it is out of their hands. J-Fly, Celestine, Simmons, Diante's grandma etc....

    BTW, Sacky and Syko definitely smelled the rat early. Sounds like we may hear something official from the AD today, but so disappointed right now.

    Re: Simmons ineligible?

    So what changed? Didn't the original 'all clear' come from CU's admissions department after they talked with the JuCo?

    I really feel bad for Simmons. Sounds like he worked his ass off this summer all for nothing.

    Cannot totally agree. One transfer? Sure, it happens. Three transfers at one position over the course of a year? Something is not clicking there.

    I was hoping, but as I said in another thread, the longer this thing went on the more it reminded of the Gates "the grades are in the mail" situation...

    Damn. :sad1:

    Re: Simmons ineligible?

    I'll agree to disagree. It seems like pure coincidence to me. By all accounts Kiesau was really well liked by the players... As I've said time and time again IMO you can't blame the coaches for Celestine knocking up his girlfriend, J-Fly and his "Rap", Blackmon and his homesickness, and Simmons not qualifying. There probably is more to the story but I don't think you can blame the coaches for all of the above. But, I really think they screwed the pooch by only taking one scholly WR in 08 in Blackmon

    Re: Simmons ineligible?

    Is there a way he can stick around and redshirt this year and play as a junior next? (since he's "admitted"). I dont get this BS.

    The only positive is that Will Jefferson really looks like a stud. I think he will have to be now.

    Hmmm. Very fair post, your last sentence is spot on. That is killing us now.

    Re: Simmons ineligible?

    Apparently my question got lost in the blame game. What changed? A week ago the CU admissions department said he was in. Did the JuCo lie about his grades?

    To paraphrase: Don't try to recruit. Be recruiters.

    Not totally clear right now. Maybe he did not pass one his last summer classes? Has to be something like that.

    Yeah. This is what pisses me off. All we were hearing was that everything is fine blah. blah blah.

    Re: Simmons status still undetermined

    I've read the premium post in question.

    Ringo NEVER says ineligible in his brief comment. That was a reader interpretation. Says he may miss the CSU game. That's it. Ringo says something official from CU will come later.

    The report was exaggerated, IMO.

    Would prefer this thread was titled "Simmons Status?" because we are repeating a rumor that isn't even accurate at the source.

    Look at Ringo's blog. If this was confirmed, it would have been posted. AS of 3:48 p.m it's not there, so hold out some hope until details are released.
