Monday Buff Bites - Waiting On the University to Confirm Simmons' Clearance

Report: CU's Simmons cleared to play - The Denver Post
All that remains to guarantee WR Andre Simmons has qualified and is cleared to play for the Buffs this season should come tomorrow when the Buffs return to the practice field. Kyle Ringo of the Daily Camera confirmed this morning that Simmons has indeed been cleared to play this year but Dave Plati of the CU sports information department would not confirm the report from Ringo. The guess is the news will be made official from the University tomorrow when the Buffs resume practice at 4:30 pm . Stay tuned

Colorado spokesman David Plati said the athletic department would not confirm the report but said an announcement could come as early as Tuesday. Players had off on Monday, the first day of classes. Practices resume Tuesday. "Until he is approved and full go, we cannot say anything," Plati said Monday. "Hopefully, (an announcement) will be sooner than later."

Decisions on future of CU-CSU series likely soon - Rocky Mountain Independent
The Rocky Mountain Independent says expect a decision to play the CU-CSU series in Denver next Monday at the Denver Metro Sports Commission luncheon. With over 5,000 tickets remaining unsold for the game in Folsom right now, the argument for the game to be played in Denver is even stronger.

The biggest indicator that the CU-CSU series will return to Denver in 2011 at the latest is a CU official’s comment this weekend that an announcement is hoped for during the Aug. 31 Denver Metro Sports Commission luncheon. The DMSA essentially puts on the game, and the luncheon seems an odd place to announce that the game is not coming back to Invesco.

Right recipe for Buffaloes Versatile Nate Solder figures large in CU’s seasonal mix - The Longmont Times-Call
Offensive line coach Denver Johnson calls Nate Solder the most God-gifted guy he has ever coached:

Guys like Nate Solder don’t come around very often. In Denver Johnson’s eyes, they come along perhaps only once. "He’s really the most God-gifted guy I’ve ever coached — just really gifted with ability," said the new Colorado offensive line coach — who has 12 years of college coaching experience — about Solder.

Three-point stance: Patience in Ann Arbor - College Football Nation - ESPN

3. Observations from the new AP poll. Florida gets a record vote for No. 1, which means the Gators won't finish there. The Big Ten has three teams in the Top 25, same as the Pac-10 and the Mountain West. However, that's three more teams than the Big East. Nearly half of the FBS population (54 of 120) received at least one 25th-place vote. The biggest surprise? Colorado, a legit Big 12 North dark horse, got no votes, as in one fewer than Troy.
