And I'm sure AJ is pulling for him as well. Some of you know way more inside info than I do, but I don't think there was ever any anomosity between them.

Very mature and refined words from Sims whose biggest obstacle was playing in front of huge crowds imo. Virginia is good place to get over stage fright and nerves and play to to your potential, which he has a lot of.
Thanks for the read. I've always had respect for Phillip coming in one year behind AJ knowing that he was in a tough situation. To me it showed that he really wanted to play for Alabama. His transfer to me was the best realistic option for him. Gotta give him credit for trying his best while he was here.
Total class. There's a right way to do things and a wrong way. P Sims seems as though he's always done it the right way.
Maybe it's me but I don't understand why he left. It's very possible that AJ could be gone after *this* season. Sims would have gotten the reins here instead of Virginia. Maybe as you guys say, he's not ready for the pressure of SEC football. <shruggs> Either, you have to wish him the best. He's been a class-act here and there.
“I know what it takes to win. If I can sell them on what it takes to win, then we are not going to lose too many football games.” - Coach Paul Bryant and I can see Coach Nick Saban agreeing completely.
man he's gushing
I really wish he had stayed. It's almost a given that AJ will leave this year, and I think PS would have done well with the embarrassment of riches we have at RB and WR. I also think next year's OL will be very solid, at worst - maybe even very good. With CyKo, Steen, and just maybe Fluker returning, they will still be pretty cohesive unit. The #2's have been practicing and playing together for a while now, and they will really be a veteran unit. I think they will be a lot like our LB corps this year - maybe not a star studded across the board, but still very solid and consistent.
That was a great read. I wish him all the success and hope they clobber Miami this weekend.
Philip Sims went 8-10 and 1 TD last week against NC State. Not too shabby.
Sims and Rocco split time with each other at QB.
Sims did drop a halfback pass throw-back to the QB, which would have been a TD, but Sims seems to be settling in nicely in Charlottesville. I wish him well.
If he and his teammates play well against VT, they could break their losing streak. This year's Hokies are, well, there have been better VT football teams.
