Saturday Buff Bites - The Colorado Daily Confirms Simas' Suspension Resulted From a DUI

Colorado_mediumCU Buffs WR Markques Simas suspended, DUI the cause

Welcome to Boulder, Robert Prince.

Prince, CU`s new receivers coach, was supposed to inherit what might be one of the most talented positions on the CU roster. But that lineup took a hit Friday morning when Hawkins announced the indefinite suspension of wide receiver Markques Simas for violating team rules.

CU officials didn`t specify the rule broken by Simas, but a Boulder police report obtained by the Camera shows that Simas was arrested early Friday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence.

According to the report, a Boulder police officer saw a gold Explorer make a U-turn without using a turn signal near 15th Street and University Avenue around 2:20 a.m. The SUV also crossed the double yellow center line while making the turn. When the of-ficer stopped the vehicle, the driver, who police identified as Simas, had bloodshot eyes and slurred speech, the report said.

Simas admitted to drinking two beers and part of a third earlier in the evening, the report said.

A breath test taken by Simas shortly at the traffic stop showed he had a breath alcohol concentration, or BRAC, of 0.135, the report said. Another test administered almost an hour later at the police department showed a BRAC of 0.138.

The legal limit in Colorado is 0.08.

Colorado_mediumCU's move from Big 12 to Pac-10 would come at a cost - The Denver Post

Colorado fans shouldn't pack their golf clubs for Pac-10 road trips just yet. The Big 12 requires two years notice by an exiting team with a penalty of 50 percent of the league cut for those two years in limbo. "Well, certainly. Any time that you are looking at a financial penalty moving from the Big 12 to the Pac-10, that certainly has to come into play," CU chancellor Phil DiStefano said Friday.

One factor weighing for the Pac-10 is CU's alumni presence on the West Coast. According to CU's alumni office, there are 29,096 known alums in California and 15,245 combined in the other three Pac-10 states. "Our alumni base is stronger in the Pac-10 areas than in the Big 12," DiStefano said. "That's certainly something to consider, especially when the team travels."

If Burks, Higgins, Marcus Relphorde and the role players are all taking good shots -- something CU did not do after falling behind early against Missouri -- the Buffs believe they can end the program`s 33-game Big 12 road losing streak today in one of the conference`s most intimidating venues.
