Hudtloff is an extremely biased sports reporter.He is very selective in what he reports.UVA sports are only important to UVA
fANS.No media including did much to share the
accomplishments of High Schoolers at the
Dogwood Meet with about 50 high schools
participating.Why?Is it not also important
to people who have to read the sorry Daily
Progress sports section.Hudtloff should join
Jerry Radcliff they are equally inefficient!

We are blessed to have Coach London. The vast majority of college athletes go on to careers in fields other than professional sports. Thank you for focusing on what truly matters. Thank you for your integrity. GO HOOS!!!

I too applaud Coach London's stance. It is unfortunate, that has developed after the upheaval this past season. Rocco might still be here to compete with Watford.
Sims will probably land where academics and commitments are less valued.

The NCAA granted Sims a medical hardship so he could play this year and he does not put forth the effort. What a slap in the face of those who did him a favor not to sit out a year after transferring. Granted, he has had a tough time with family issues and UVa is quite rigorous but from what London stated, "Go to class. Show class and treat people with dignity and respect. Those directions are pretty easy to follow and they will lead you on a path of success," comes off to say that Sims put very little effort into anything and had little respect for people he encountered.

Don't worry your next London. You look down at me when you seen me at CVS like I was a lower standard to you.

Maybe, you are a lower standard to the coach! Your grammar needs some work, maybe you should join Sims and go to class and show some class.

Unfortunate, especially since Rocco left. Soon begins another 4-8 season, no bowl game and another loss to Tech. We don't have a quarterback and we don't have a chance.

As long as UVa still requires athletes to attend and pass a few classes. The football team will always be average at best. Anyone could see from the first time Simms was introduced, he wasn't UVa student-athlete material. He should have transfered to Norfolk State or ODU.

Can somebody elaboarate Sims' medical hardship that made him move to UVA and didn't require him to be benched for a year? To me, his chance was slim as a quarterback in Alabama; thus, the transfer.
Too bad Rocco left. He was fine but didn't get the chance to develop due to the two quarterback coaching style.
I hope UVA will avoid using 2 quarterbacks. Use Lambert if he topped the post-spring depth chart!
