As my kids would say YOLO!!
WAHOO 4 LIFE!!
By the time they play UVA, TCU and Penn State won't have any players, but I still don't see them getting to 8 wins, and I damn sure don't see them getting to 9.
He kind of only needed to right once, you can argue the timing but we all (Hoos, Hokies, Bama) knew it he was either going to transfer or something was going to have to go wrong for him not to transfer to UVA. Probably the worst keep transfer "secret" of all time
Don't have any knowledge of your predictions, but I will say I trust Jamie Oakes 100%. Your only posting information that he has and has been asked to not release. He is a professional and for me that's what makes him the best in the business. If you called it on Sims good job.

Let's get to the good stuff. Was Sims guaranteed the starting spot if he transferred to UVA? What's gonna happen with sluggo? And what about watfords promised playing time, is that out the window now?
There is no promised time. The job is open to whoever wins it. I'm in the small minority who feel it should be Rocco's team and he's earned it.
Cmon now that's like ardent predicting to always beat VT..its bound to happen as we all know..so he always say he was right..forget about the other times he was wrong..
The point is that it was bound to happen, the timing was "worked" out so everyone got what they needed/wanted.
I think Rocco did a heck of a good job the last half of last year, he is a good smart QB that can manage games. If you have a lights out D he's probably your guy, if you need to score 30, I think you need someone that can stretch the field., that's likely Sims
Sims wasn't promised the starting job. It's Mike Rocco's to lose. I do however think Simms will be the starting QB by the end of the year. The best thing they could do for Watford is to redshirt him this season. Rocco will be senior next year and Simms will be Redshirt Junior. Even though Simms has 3 years of eligibilty left I don't see any way he's still at UVA in 2015 he will be in the pros by then.
Guys can we at least spell our new starting qbs name right? jesus pete it's Sims.
They'll still find a way to get him on the field for a handful of drive-killing plays every week.
Sorry must have been typing to fast. But who says he then new starting QB? LOL!!
I don't know there is still inside talk of him switching positions too. So we'll see.
Apologies to Sems
just going with it figuring i'll be right eventually. that's what 5284 has been doing
Sims will start game 1
The PSU game seems to be getting easier and easier. Their O was pretty bad last year anyway, but they had a good D.
TCU is doing their best to make that game close as well.
TCU wont have any players gone for our game from what ive read..
Do you think playing Penn St. is a must win now? I mean if you guys lose to them that will look really bad to the program with all of the players they have lost and being on probation.

Not Webbi, but I expected to win this game even before the the penalties were handed down. Playing them in the second game of the season and being under a new coach and a new system they were going to have hiccups anyway. Now that they seem to keep losing players it really isn't going to be as big a win as it would have otherwise.
and if it's a loss?
IMO you are better with Rocco at the helm the first 2 games, PSU isn't going to put up many points, having a QB that can manage the game is key IMO. Not that Sims can't do that, but Rocco has proven he can. After that game I think you need a guy that can score more points and that is a good time to get Sims going, he will also have had 6 weeks of practice and time for him to get to know players and coaches and the players and coaches time to know him...he wasn't brought in not to beat out Rocco, Rocco is a nice QB, but he isn't even close to the talent that Sims is.
