CU wide receiver Toney Clemons became embroiled in the brewing investigation at Michigan this week when he confirmed reports that the program from which he transferred to CU requires players to dedicate more time than NCAA rules allow to practices, weight lifting and film study.
After being interviewed by an ESPN writer Sunday night, Clemons issued this statement through CU Monday.
"It was not my intention to come to the forefront of any situation dealing with the Michigan football program," he said. "I talked to a reporter Sunday night but did not answer any questions nor did I contribute any information. I don`t have any ties to the original allegations and my involvement in the matter doesn`t go any further then reading the article and confirming the allegations made by the anonymous sources.
"If I am asked to answer questions by any official party, be it the University of Michigan, the Big Ten or the NCAA, I will be honest about my schedule while at Michigan. But for right now, I am a Colorado Buffalo and no longer associated with Michigan or it`s football program. It`s time for me to concentrate on my classes and my teammates here at Colorado."
I think he did a little more than confirm, but, whatever. Daylight to nighttime Mr. Clemons?
So, with Clemons backtracking, Rosenberg and Schad are left with anonymous sources, and two freshmen who did nothing wrong. Hmmm.....
