    [​IMG]Colorado has provided an official release on the suspension of five players, which was first reported by the Boulder Daily Camera.

    Here's the release:
    University of Colorado head football coach Jon Embree announced Thursday the indefinite suspensions of five players for failing to meet the expectations of being members of the team.
    Four of the five are sophomores: outside linebacker Liloa Nobriga and defensive backs Ayodeji Olatoye, Parker Orms and Paul Vigo; the fifth is redshirt freshman defensive back Josh Moten.
    Orms, from Wheat Ridge, was the only starting player among the five. He missed the last game with a leg injury and was likely out for this Saturday’s game at Stanford. Vigo, from New Brunswick, N.J., has been nursing a pulled hamstring and missed the last two games, while Moten (Carson, Calif.) and Olatoye (Dublin, Ohio) have seen spot action this season. Nobriga (Summerlin, Nev.) has not appeared in a game in 2011.
    “We are disappointed that these student-athletes have not lived up to the high expectations we have here at the University of Colorado,” Embree said. “While not going into specifics, there are no issues with law enforcement, but they have not met their obligations and responsibilities to be active members of the team.”
    Embree said the five are prohibited from engaging in any football-related activity, but are still responsible to meet all academic requirements.
