LB Sipili's suspension stuns Buff teammates

Shock. Anger. Disappointment. Victory.

A wide range of feelings ran through the Colorado football program in the aftermath of popular linebacker Michael Sipili's suspension from school for the fall semester.

The Buffs coaching staff had made Sipili a part of the defensive game plan for Saturday's matchup against Miami (Ohio) at Folsom Field until CU's Office of Judicial Affairs handed down its disciplinary decision on Friday before the team's final walkthrough.

Sipili, who pled guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge on Sept. 6 in connection with a June brawl in Boulder, was previously suspended by CU head coach Dan Hawkins for the first three games of the season and was sentenced on Sept. 12 to four days on a Boulder County Jail work crew, 80 hours of community service and two years of probation.
