    CU sports information director Dave Plati could not confirm that Simmons has enrolled in classes. Plati said the school would probably not have an announcement on Simmons' status until Tuesday.
    "The process is continuing at this point, but we are hopeful," Plati said. "There is a light at the end of the tunnel."
    When Simmons joins the team on the practices field, he must spend the first three days without pads and in limited contact.

    I can't have this news now. I already fired my Glock 19 into the air in celebration and am now laying low at home refreshing AllBuffs the rest of the day.

    ****ing Ringo.

    I knew something was getting hinky when Adam with Rivals would not comment.

    It may all be a formality, but god damn this roller coaster ride.

    Rep to the first person to post a picture of Simmons actually wearing a CU uniform.

    Well, there is that picture. He looks like he is passively watching practice. Rep anyway.

    The bounty rep is intended for evidence that Simmons is actually practicing with the team, hopefully catching a ball inside the field of play.

    Why in gods name can't the school release some sort of official information. It doesn't have to contain an personal details of Simmons. Just tell us poor slobs wtf is going on.

    And Hawk wonders why we're internet scum. We rumor monger because they don't release any helpful information :lol:

    I think the remaining practices are closed to the public. So you may have to wait until gameday to see that picture in pads.

    Besides, Bohn probably wants himself or Hawkins to make an offical announcement instead of the press.

    Absent a top secret photo, gameday might be the day I finally exhale on the Simmons situation. What a rollercoaster.

    Assuming he gets in (fingers crossed), any chance he plays against CSU at all?

    Some may disagree with me, but I think there is a very good chance.

    He definitely should play. Simmons has that size AND speed our WR's (that aren't ineligible/suspended) are missing. I'm sure the coaches will throw him in on a couple easy plays. Fade routes for TD's. Similar to the J-Fly situation in the 07 Florida State game

    I say 60/40 against since he has to go through several practices without contact before full participation.

    I think it's probable that he's way out of football shape at this point. It will be difficult to make up that lost ground in two weeks. Although any kid who can take 25 credit hours in one semester has my unflinching respect.

    Agreed, I wish we had depth at WR so there wouldn't even be talk of not redshirting the guy so he can can get used to CU, the coaches and the playbook before he takes the field. Something tells me he won't struggle in the classroom though :thumbsup:

    As mentioned before a few fade and go routes and he'll show us his potential. I also want him in on a few running plays tearing CBs a new one as Speedy, Scott, Sumler and Lockridge go to the outside :drool:

    Play? Yes, probably. Be a big part of the offense? doubtful.
