Simms 'not going to Louisville'

For the record, I could give two shits whether or not Matt Simms comes to Louisville. We don't need anyone else for two years, and finding an able quarterback (Who doesn't flick off opposing crowds and act like he's auditioning for My Super Sweet 16) willing to play for Louisville is like finding a starving actress willing to take a role on Days of our Lives.

Don Bosco quarterback Matt Simms has withdrawn his oral commitment to Louisville just hours after head coach Bobby Petrino officially left the school for the NFL.

"I'm not going to Louisville," said Simms, the son of former Giants quarterback Phil and brother of current Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Chris. "As far as my recruiting goes, I'm pretty much back to square one."

Simms pledged to join Petrino at Louisville in August, but athletes are not bound to schools or to their scholarship until they sign a letter of intent in their respective sport. The signing period for football begins on Feb. 6.

"He's pretty much one of the main reasons I committed to Louisville," Simms said of Petrino, "so the fact that he's not there, it's time for me to find someplace else, somewhere I'm going to feel comfortable."
