From the Ripley’s department comes the unbelievable news that Matt Simms, formerly at the University of Louisville, may be in contention for the starting quarterback job at Tennessee.
Simms was among many players to transfer from the Louisville football team for a wide variety of reasons over the last three seasons. Explanations were rarely provided so fans were often in the dark. Simms saw so little action one never knew whether he had potential or not.
Lane Kiffen, the last Tennessee coach, apparently thought so, recruiting Simms from a junior college.
With the news of the recent departure of Nick Stephens from the UT squad, Simms could very well be the front runner. His primary competition is Tyler Bray, an incoming freshman.
