So will Jalen Hurts transfer or possibly change positions?

    Why do people keep mentioning Gilbert Grape?

    He threw for like 4 interceptions and fumbled the ball on a sack for Alabama to ice the game.

    The only reason he had even a little success is because Alabama let up off the gas after being up huge, then as soon as Texas got close again, they stepped back on their throats.

    If people put a big deal on some garbage scores, then that's on them. I mostly remember people trying to use it as a way of claiming McCoy would have done better. "If Colt hadn't got hurt".

    Fair, i don't remember all the picks.

    I know 2 of them went off receivers hands and ended up in Bama's hands. Not on him really.

    But just looked at the box score. I thought he played better.

    But what's more amazing...6/11 58 yards was the winning QB's line...amazing.

    McElroy was never much of a passer, and then he had cracked ribs on top of it. If Alabama hadn't been able to run the ball so well, might would have been in trouble.

    Hey, I'm not saying that Tua is the best slice of bread out there. But, he is a better passing QB than Hurts is. I loves me some Hurts too. It's just unfortunate that he doesn't seem to be progressing.

    If Tua can progress then I'm feeling good. There will be a QB competition in the Spring. Saban's a fair guy & he'll give Jalen an opportunity to compete for the position.
    The biggest new in my Crimson opinion is that Damien Harris is going to come back to play his Senior year. I'm loving that, Harris didn't get the rock enough. I heard he had been dealing with a groin. Harris is a BEAST!

    No doubt. I think the point is, it was a single half of football. That’s an extremely small sample size no matter how good he looked.

    He looked just as good in his garbage time this year. He's the future of Bama.

    True. Anthony Jennings came in for two LSU games at the end of the season a few years ago and looked like the savior.

    If you don't recognize his name, you can guess how that ended up

    Awesome. Thanks.

    I mean I always liked him and joked wih my friend that Bama needed to switch to Tua to win. But I never seriously thought saban would do it.

    I didn't think the switch needed to be made until halftime when it did happen. Tua still made freshman mistakes, and we saw some in the game, while Jalen doesn't make many mistakes - he just doesn't have the vision or something to stand in the pocket and make throws.

    I thought/hoped Jalen would make plays with his legs and he did, but Daboll kept wanting him to sit in the pocket and it just wasn't happening. Freshman mistakes or not, it was time for the change.

    We saw what Jalen would've done with the game winning TD pass when he played Clemson last year.

    The ball might've taken out a spectator in the 3rd row behind the EZ.
