LB Sipili suspended from school
Colorado linebacker Michael Sipili has been suspended from school for the fall semester by CU's Office of Judicial Affairs.
Sipili was informed of the decision Friday.
Sipili pled guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge on Sept. 6 in connection with a June brawl in Boulder. The 19-year-old sophomore linebacker from Hawaii was sentenced on Sept. 12 to four days on a Boulder County Jail work crew, 80 hours of community service and two years of probation.
Sipili was also suspended by CU coach Dan Hawkins for the first three games of the season, but he continued to attend classes.
He has now been ordered to stay away from campus for the rest of the semester. He will be eligible for reinstatement to the university for the spring semester.
Sipili figured to be a starting linebacker for the Buffs this season. Because he played as a true freshman, he could use this season as a redshirt season and have three years of eligibility remaining.
