Simas’ career at CU might be over

It’s a shame to see wide receiver Markques Simas just can’t seem to stay out of trouble. He was arrested and charged with a DUI last week and his career at CU might be over.

Why do I say that?

Well, I’ve had a couple conversations with folks in the CU athletic department in the past few days, and one of them said to me, ‘If I had to say at this point, I don’t think he will be on the team next season.’

The decision is ultimately up to coach Dan Hawkins. Since he became coach at CU, his general approach has been to part ways with guys after a second infraction. Hawkins always says, “Once is a mistake, twice is behavior.”

This was Simas’ second violation of team rules. He was suspended for the first two games last season for a previous violation of team rules. And he missed the entire 2008 season after becoming academically ineligible during a redshirt season in 2007. One could argue he has already had three opportunities to get it right and two second chances.

Then again, Hawkins has another saying, “We’re not into disposable people.” So who knows?

Simas won’t participate in spring bal, and I’m expecting that sometime after spring ball, the program will announce that Simas is moving on. If he isn’t on the roster next year, it’s not necessarily a huge blow, but it definitely makes what was expected to be an area of strength on the team a little less sturdy. An injury or a player becoming academically ineligible could create a big problem.

IF Simas is on the team, he will probably miss another game or two to start the season once again, meaning if he actually makes it all the way to his senior season in Boulder and he actually plays in the CSU game that, it will be the first time he has been on the field against the Rams in five years.

But that’s getting ahead of ourselves. I expect somebody else will be wearing No. 6 next fall.

    … a Buff perspective from the NW .. hope to see my "home team" in the Pac 12 … but the conference is not without its issues …. USC is surely headed for probation ….. and Oregon this years PAC 10 FB Champ has had the following issues since their Rose Bowl appearance … wide receiver removed from the program …. starting QB is subject of a current Grand Jury investigation… starting RB, last years PAC 10 Offensive Rookie of the Year today has been charged with felony domestic assault … the Buff program is not alone, and you don't want to get me started on the SEC …

    Coach Zen Hawkins should remove hisownbadself based on this credo. What a dipstick.

    Simas was poised to have a national-sized breakout year! Why can't the kid stay focused on his work on the field when he is off the field. Frustrating! I hope he is back, but we'll see.

    I met and seen many inspiring and empowering ladies at the conference. I enjoyed the seminars and desire I could have attended the a person that were being schedule at time I had been attending yet another one. But soon after listening and staying empowered by all these astounding females, I found the fashion show bordering on ridiculous and pandering to gals. How tricky would it happen to be to possess models showing the most current cycling styles for women of all ages. Alternatively we received girls in CFM heels painted gold in bikinis. Subsequent time I say have more seminars at unique moments and ditch the fashion exhibit.
