    Met Phillip Sims' dad in Little Caesar's today...

    I walked into a 'Little Caesar's' today and right behind me was a fellow Bama fan (I knew this because he was wearing a Bama Sweatshirt and sweatpants), what else could I do but say "Roll Tide". So we struck up a conversation, I told him I had lived in Mobile for a number of years and still consider it my Hometown. He said he had lived in Tuscaloosa for a couple of years and really loved it there. He said he was always treated like a celebrity there. I asked him what he did and he said it wasn't him so much but his son played football. I said "He played for the Tide!" "Yes". What's his name? "Phillip Sims". I know my jaw had to hit the floor. I had been hoping to run across Phillip around town sometime, but I never thought I would meet his dad. I expressed my dismay that Phillip left Bama but I understood why.
    He was a joy to speak with and he had absolutely nothing but praise for Alabama, the University, Tuscaloosa, the people and the team and especially Nick Saban. and I've got to say, I walked out of there with a feeling of pride and warmth after speaking with him. I wished him and Phillip nothing but the absolute best in life and also that his medical procedure done at UVA will enable him to enjoy many years of watching Phillip being successful playing football, even if it wasn't with the Tide. Roll Tide...A'ight!

    Great short story. The title of this thread doesn't do the story justice.

    Well, I see what you're saying and I was unsuccessful in changing the title. Thanks for the constructive suggestion. Have a great day. Roll Tide...A'ight!

    It would be easy for someone to be bitter about not getting the starting job, glad to see the family still has good feelings about Saban and the program.

    Good story. Maybe Phillip will need to move back to Tuscaloosa for a medical reason next year and can play QB if AJ does leave early for the draft. I know he moved back for family reasons. But I wonder if Phillip was an extra year younger, would Phillip still be in Tuscaloosa.

    im4uainva, likely, a moderator can change the title. It may take a PM from you.

    How 'bout this?: "Phillip Sims' dad in Bama gear as we chatted in Charlottesville, today."

    ESPN 6:30 CST Tonight: VA hopes to keep momentum vs NC.

    http://espn.go.com/blog/ncfnation/post/_/id/71394/virginia-hopes-to-keep-up-momentum


    Just about everybody buried Virginia after the Hoos went into their bye week on a six-game losing streak.

    Too many turnovers. Too many penalties. Too much inconsistency.


    But a strange thing happened at the bottom of the heap. Virginia started winning. The same team that had trouble scoring points and holding onto the football has combined for 78 points and more than 900 yards of offense in the past two weeks, with just two turnovers. The two-game points spree is the most Virginia has scored in consecutive games against FBS opponents in seven years.

    ************************************************** ********

    London [Coach Mike London] unveiled a two-quarterback system against NC State, playing both Rocco and Phillip Sims. Generally speaking, teams that play two quarterbacks often have no answers at quarterback. But Virginia is 2-0 with both playing, though Rocco really emerged in the win against Miami last week. He threw four touchdown passes, including the game-winner with six seconds remaining.

    Still, London has no plans to do anything differently against the Tar Heels -- who are coming into the game without the momentum Virginia has. North Carolina gave up 68 points last week in a loss to Georgia Tech and has now had a short work week to fix its mistakes and get ready for another game.

    I see he's wearing #14. Is that for Bama's 14 national titles?
    If God wanted me to be humble, he would have sent me to Auburn.
