07:18 AM ET 07.30 | What a difference a few years have made in the worlds of quarterbacks AJ McCarron and Phillip Sims. When the news came on Monday that Sims would be transferring to Division II power Winston-Salem State University to finish his college career, his former competitor and teammate McCarron was among the first to congratulate Sims. @10AJMcCarron: Proud of my boy @phil14_sims757_ on being a WSSU Ram! Go there and ball out. Play like u know how. Tell Ur pops I said what's up. #757king ... Sims returned McCarron's sentiment with a tweet of his own. @phil14_sims757_: Much love & respect to my big bro @10AJMcCarron. Seen him grow into a great player & man... Brothers for life #salute #respect. ... Sims will be required to sit out the 2013 season and will be eligible to play his final two seasons beginning in 2014.

I suppose that's better than a pic-tweet of a spread of cash.

I am confused... If Sims has dropped down to D2, why does he have to sit out a year? Why can he not suit up and play right away?

I believe Sims may have some academic issues to square away before he can play.

My thoughts exactly. At one point he was neck and neck with McCarron at Alabama, then was dumped by UVA, and now to Division II.

I intensely dislike low pulls. Low deployments leave little to no time & space for dealing with parachute malfunctions of any kind. The chances of auguring in are just too high.
