Suspensions, UH-CU Previews

Guess we'll hear soon regarding the fate of Aaron Brown and Darius Bright.
McMackin said both players notified him of their arrests Sunday morning. McMackin then contacted UH athletic director Jim Donovan.

"I will evaluate the situation when I get all of the information, and will then take appropriate action," McMackin said.

McMackin is scheduled to meet with both players this morning. The coach then will forward his recommendation to Donovan.
UPDATE: Brown and Bright suspended for the Colorado game.
"Aaron and Darius used extremely poor judgment and in turn embarrassed the football program and the university," head coach Greg McMackin said in a press release.

"These are two young men who have never been in trouble with the law before, but became involved in a situation where they did not make the right choices."

Both players also will face team disciplinary measures, and must perform community service.

By the way, it's game week! CFN has a game preview.
Why Colorado Might Win: When Hawaii has the ball, the Buffs will be capable of moving the line of scrimmage. While the Warriors are working on replacing all five starters from its front wall, Colorado features a veteran look along the front seven.
Why Hawaii Might Win: A trip to Hawaii is the last thing Colorado needed in its opener. Sure, it’s the Islands, but the Buffs are in dire straits in the secondary after losing two corners to the NFL. Moniz will feast on his visitors, spreading the ball around to Royce Pollard, Darius Bright and the rest of the playmaking wide receivers.
Ryan Thorburn of The Daily Camera writes about Colorado's 18-game road losing streak.

Nick Hirschman, Colorado's immediate backup to starting QB Tyler Hansen, is back to practice after missing two weeks with a high ankle sprain.

And Mark Arakaki of Ka Leo runs down the list of UH's projected starters.
