Bama backup QB transferring to Toledo

07:05 PM ET 05.29 | Alabama backup quarterback Phillip Ely is headed to Toledo, in a move that works out well for both him and the defending two-time national championship Crimson Tide: he gets to play somewhere, and Nick Saban's squad magically drops down to the 85-scholarship limit. Funny how that works.

Ely a three-star recruit out of high school, had picked Alabama over LSU, Clemson, and Ole Miss, but had never gotten a chance to play: with A.J. McCarron the two-year starter at quarterback and presumptive backup Blake Sims now permanently a quarterback, it was going to be some time until Ely got to take snaps. And with other talented quarterbacks on the roster and coming through recruiting, even that wasn't guaranteed.

At Toledo, he'll sit out a year and likely start when current quarterback Terrance Owens graduates. Ely was 3-for-4 with a touchdown in reserve duty at Alabama.

You're right. Arby's better run an inventory check.

He's got that Domer pot of gold that ain't showing any signs of disappearing - he can buy the Arby's and chew it brick by brick.

Oh God ! Now he'll have to attend class and actually study and possibly write a paper. The inhumanity of it all.
