Sipili all smiles

Colorado linebacker Michael Sipili already has been through a lot during his career in Boulder. Entering his fourth season with the Buffs he is as fit as he's ever been and hoping to make a big impact, especially with any opponent who dares to come through the heart of the CU defense. Get inside for a video interview with Sipili.

Michael Sipili trotted off the field after Sunday's evening practice trading verbal blows with fellow middle linebacker Marcus Burton, the man with whom he is competing for a starting job. It's a friendly competition and both players will see a lot of action this season regardless of who wins.

Sipili always has been a quiet guy, but he seems to be coming out of his shell these days and might have finally found his comfort zone. A focused, happy and confident Sipili could be very bad news for opponents in 2009.
