Former Michigan, Current Buff WR Toney Clemons in the Middle of the Michigan Probe

The University of Michigan said Sunday that it will investigate the allegations of players and parents who told the Free Press that the football team violated NCAA rules governing off-season workouts, in-season practices and summer scrimmages. Late Sunday, former Wolverine receiver Toney Clemons backed up those players' accounts -- telling the Free Press that U-M coach Rich Rodriguez and his staff required players to put in workout and practice hours that surpassed what the NCAA allows. Clemons, who transferred to the University of Colorado, said the Colorado coaches follow the rules, as did former Michigan Coach Lloyd Carr. Part of me wishes that Clemons would have said "no comment" to media surrounding the Michigan questions purely to avoid any distractions as the season is now around the corner. Here is some more comments on ESPN.com: "The allegations are true," Clemons said. "Nothing is fabricated or exaggerated in that story. I was there on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. or 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. depending on if guys needed treatment. You were there daylight to nighttime." Clemons has since transferred to Colorado. On Saturday night, another former Michigan starter and a current Michigan player who asked for anonymity started said the reports of excessive training and football-related activities were accurate. "On Sunday, it was lifting, film, dinner and practice," Clemons told Schad. "I usually got out around 10:20. I truly don't want to be associated with the program back there. But I am going to help benefit my teammates back there by speaking and giving testimony."

2009 Commit Edward Nuckols Not Greyshirting, Attends DII Seton Hill

According to the Seton Hill roster, DT Edward Nuckols is not greyshirting but in fact, attending DIVISION TWO Seton Hill in Pennsylvania. This is an absolutely shocking move not due to the fact that his attendance at Colorado in the future looks very slim (always the case when a kid doesn't qualify as a freshman) but because he transferred to a division two school meaning he will still have to sit out a year next season if he wants to go the division one route. He also burns a year of eligibility by going division II as a freshman. The protocol is always to go to a JUCO or greyshirt so you don't have to sit out a year when you try to make the jump to division one, not lose two years + one year of eligibility. Odd choice to say the least. How he ended up in Pennsylvania at a division two school as a California kid doesn't add up right now? Former Mission High School teammate, So. RB Donte Potter, also plays for Seton Hill, possibly a connection to the school. Who knows? Best of luck to Nuckols even if we don't see him in a Buffs uni.

CUBuffs.com - Bohn Clears WR Andre Simmons to Begin Practicing

Receiver Andre Simmons was cleared by Colorado athletics director Mike Bohn Wednesday afternoon to begin practicing immediately with the Buffaloes. Simmons, a transfer from Independence (Kan.) Community College, reported with the rest of the Buffs on Aug. 6, but has been held out of practices pending verification of his eligibility. The 6-foot-3, 210-pounder from Blackville, S.C., received a round of applause from his teammates during Wednesday afternoon's position meeting, conducted by head coach/receivers coach Dan Hawkins. "Guys, let's hear it for 'Dre' - he's good to go today," Hawkins said. Big news for the success of the offense in 2009.

Still Awaiting Official Confirmation From the Colorado Football Program on Simmons

Just confirmed with the Registrar. Andre Simmons is enrolled fulltime - Kyle Ringo of the Boulder Daily Camera's Twitter Supposedly Simmons didn't practice today but we shouldn't read too much into that. Dave Plati from the sports information department nor anyone from the program has confirmed or discredited anything about Andre Simmons yet, only Kyle Ringo seems to have the scoop.

Andre Simmons Cleared For Admissions, Buffs Finally Catch a Break

According to the Boulder Daily Camera, WR Andre Simmons has been cleared to enroll at the University of Colorado. In what has been a topsy turvy affair, Simmons will begin classes today and will start his football career tomorrow when practice resumes. Congratulations to Andre and the entire football program. This once again shows getting JUCO transfers into Colorado is a difficult task but do-able now that Shaun Mohler and Simmons have paved the way. This is a big win for the Buffs. Who knows when Simmons will be "game and division one" ready but I am eyeing the Wyoming game where both Markques Simas and Andre Simmons should probably be on the field and ready to go. That will be a nice tune-up for West Virginia and the rest of Big 12 play. And just like that, hopefully we can feel better about the wide receiver position! Again, congrats to Simmons. His work really paid off and it was only right to award the kid for the academic gauntlet he completed. It is nice to now be able to say "current Colorado Buffaloes receiver Andre Simmons."
