The University of Colorado football team has suspended three players after allegations of brawling, said sports information director Dave Plati.
Sophomore linebacker Michael Sipili, 19, was suspended indefinitely from the team after an arrest Wednesday on charges of second-degree assault and criminal mischief, Plati said Friday. The arrest came after a fight in June. Sipili was out of jail on bond. Sophomore defensive tackle Chris Perri, 20, will miss the first three games of the season. He allegedly had a role in the same fight. He also was arrested in July after police said he fought with teammate Taj Kaynor. Kaynor, a 21-year-old defensive tackle, was suspended for one game.
On the first day of practice for the Gators, Urban Meyer said he was pleased with the incoming freshmen. "I was very impressed," Meyer said. "It's not fair to single one guy out or two guys out. ... In my opinion, they're all going to play. It's sheer numbers, first of all. And then I think they're that talented."

"Does that make any sense to anyone except me? And is it that difficult to understand? "Practice is to improve and that's what we're trying to do with our practice." Thanks for those words of wisdom Nick.
