I thought I read somewhere that he was lobbying Cabral when he was HC.
didn't he get into trouble for something?
I think he got a DUI. It was his second offense, and was booted. Hawk said at the time that if Simas straightened up and got his act together, there was a possibility that he could come back, but it was a slim possibility. I'm curious if he went the JUCO route, transfer, or is still somewhere around Boulder.
He should be so lucky.
Didn't he miss court for the DUI charge. I remember a lot of people mad that Hawk didn't have someone remind him of his court date or something.
DUI, then blew off his court date was my recollection.
That's the part I forgot about. Yep, he blew off his court date. Idot.
Anyway, that doesn't answer the original question. Does anybody know where he is these days?
Hawk was unfairly blamed here, I have it on good authority there was a note in his lunchpail between the juicebox and burrito, signed by D II himself reminding him of the court date. What more could he have done?
He is still hanging around and has been trying to come back for next season. It was sounding like it would happen for a while, but I am not sure what has happened since Embree took over.
I thought I read someone on here or Rivals quote a coach saying "Not a chance." Don't remember for sure. If he is allowed to come back it should be as a walk on imo. Kid has blown too many opportunities to warrant a schollie.
:lol: and I agree.
I'm sure Embree has a lot of other things he's dealing with right now. If Simas is sincere about coming back and is willing to do what it takes, he'd be great to have back on the team. I think he still has two years of eligibility left.
Maybe during the dark recruiting period, Embree can sit down with him and get a feel for things.
I'm not sure going Joe Biden on him is the way to go to get him back on the roster....
I read that too. I think Simas' ship has sailed pertaining to CU.
Yeah, I'm kind of a mixed bag on this. Simas has the opportunity to be a NFL receiver if he gets his head on straight. That said, DUI's are bad news and he already had issues with alcohol.
**** that, I don't want him back.
Why not? The DUI? I realize that's nothing to trivialize, but your reaction makes it seem like there's some other reason you don't want him back. There's no denying the kid can play, and would be a huge asset to us on the field. His off-field issues certainly need to be addressed.
You'd hope that maturity would do that for him. I don't know, tho. He needs to get his stuff together.
Maybe he's been talking to Kendrick Celestine, and perhaps he's done some real soul-searching.
He made some dumb choices, but I'd definitely take him back.
I believe it was Hagan who scoffed at the idea and totally dismissed it.
Plus, he would have one year left, not two. His eligibility clock doesn't go on hold when he is out of school.
2007 - Redshirted
2008 - academically ineligible
2009 - played
2010 - suspended
2011 - TBD
Simas has NFL talent but is another guy who isn't going to have enough tape to get drafted. Even if he sticks at CU I don't see them trusting him enough to put him in front of PRich or Toney and we have some other guys as well.
If his academics are in order he might consider going to a lower division school where he can transfer without waiting and dominate enough to get some serious film together. Maybe UNC, if not there then to CSU-Pueblo with Wristen.
Simas has f*cked up over and over and over. He's been suspended several times, he was redshirted to give him a chance to concentrate on school and and he blew off his classes, he blew off a court date for a DUI. Do we really want this guy around Paul Richardson? I don't. He's had his five chances, move on. He can try a JUCO or a D2 school if he still wants to play football.
Normally I would want a guy like Simas on the team, but we have the depth at the WR position that we don't need him, don't get me wrong he would be a nice to have. Just in the end is he worth having here for a year to be at best our slot guy where somone like Simmons or Celestine have earned it more.
I think the real problem is with the Boulder PD. if this happens in Lincoln or Austin they would just blame it on text messaging.
1. He has ****ed up too many times.
2. He isn't that great, and we are set at the position for a while now especially if some of the rumored WR's we are after come here.
His many, many off the field issues.
I'm with Leash. He had his chances, the guy should just move on.
He should go to a D2 school that can give him some good direction and academic support. The NFL is the least of his concerns. He needs to parlay that last year of eligibility into a college degree before he ends up in a Nebraska meat packing house, lamenting how he so clearly screwed up his life.
The guy has a lot of potential and had some of the best hands I can remember a WR at CU having in my tenure watching the Buffs (since 05). He had some great games and didn't he finish '08 with 3 games of 100+ yards receiving? He and Tyler were on the same page and his screwups cost us that chemistry this year, especially early on, as well as any chance he's had getting a degree here...unless it's on his own dime.
If he comes back I'll cheer him on, but only if he does it the Celestine-way. Getting put by on scholarship just because he's good sends a bad message to the team. The guy had how many chances? 3? 4?
