Jumbo Package: Eyes are on the quarterbacks, but the real questions are in the secondary

We should probably listen to the head man on this one: the question marks lie in the defensive backfield For Alabama QB Jalen Hurts, time only deepened wounds from title game | AL.com Tagovailoa and Hurts are competing for the starting job, and it appears the Hawaiian sophomore has the edge after he was spotted working with the first-team offense at the start of practice Saturday inside Bryant-Denny Stadium. Mere hours before -- on that very same field -- Hurts met with reporters for the first time since the aftermath of the national championship game. And it was clear he had changed his...

Jalen Hurts: “No one... coaches included, asked me how I felt.”

The rising junior’s comments at fan day suggest that things aren’t all rosy in the QB room. Jalen Hurts was made available to the media at Alabama’s Fan Day event, and some of his comments suggest that he’s not terribly pleased with his current situation. @JalenHurts: "No one came up to me the whole spring, coaches included, no one asked me how I felt. No one asked me what was on my mind. ... Now when we're trying to handle the situation now, for me it's kinda late. It's too late. The narrative has already been created." pic.twitter.com/adJS7UxmdL— Alex Byington...

Johnny Manziel blames AJ McCarron for Manning Passing Camp dismissal

Johnny Manziel blames AJ McCarron for Manning Passing Camp dismissal

The mercurial QB recalls getting sent home from the event in 2013. Say what you will about Johnny Manziel, but he’s never afraid to speak his mind. Back in 2013, he was infamously dismissed from the Manning Passing Academy event that Jalen Hurts has attended for the past two seasons. It was reported that he was kicked out because he stayed out all night partying and never made it back to his dorm room, which he calls a “bunch of bullsh*t” that he blames on AJ McCarron for promulgating. He recently discussed the events on a Barstool Sports podcast. From The Spun: “They take you for...

Giving Away Money: Handicapping the winners of quarterback battles across the nation

Giving Away Money: Handicapping the winners of quarterback battles across the nation

Alabama isn’t the only playoff contender facing questions under center For those with a little more confidence in position battles than season outlooks, the European books have released the props for starting quarterbacks in 2018: there are several high profile contenders with quarterback battles to be decided over the next month, including Alabama, Ohio State, Oklahoma and Clemson. As of today, give me Jalen Hurts to get the first few series of snaps to open 2018. I think he and Tagovailoa split reps during the Louisville tussle, on a pre-scheduled basis. Does that mean he keeps the job...

Saban opens up about QB competition, warns both candidates against self-promotion

The coach spoke gave some insight to ESPN’s Sage Steele on Tuesday. ESPN staff writer Chris Low reports that Nick Saban spoke with colleague Sage Steele on Tuesday, with much of the dialogue centered around the ongoing QB battle between Jalen Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa. Of note: “I’ve told both players, ‘You’ve gotta win the team, and everything you do to bring attention to yourself, or anybody even in your family that brings attention to yourself, you’re not doing yourself a service in trying to win the team,’” Saban told ESPN on Tuesday. It’s tough not to read between the...

Alabama Football Film Room: Jalen Hurts at A-Day

Alabama Football Film Room: Jalen Hurts at A-Day

Hurts had a chance to make his case in the quarterback competition. Before A-Day, the last time we saw Jalen Hurts playing was less-than-thrilling. His passing stats - 3-8 for 21 yards - were abysmal. His rushing line looked better - 6 carries for 47 yards, but 31 of those yards came on one play. Most importantly, the team had not scored. Hurts was benched in favor of Tua Tagovailoa, who went on to lead the team to a comeback victory. This, naturally, led to endless speculation over which quarterback would be the team’s starter in 2018. Unfortunately for everyone, Tagovailoa’s hand...

2018 Davey O’Brien Award watch list: Jarrett Stidham, Jalen Hurts, Drew Lock among six contenders from SEC

The state of Alabama is well represented. So is the SEC, which has six signal callers in total on the watch list. The Davey O’Brien Award is presented annually to the top quarterback in the nation. As the 2018 season draws near, watch list season is in full effect. The 2018 Davey O’Brien Award watch list was unveiled earlier in the week, and the Southeastern Conference has six QBs on the board. The state of Alabama has its two QBs on the list, as Jalen Hurts of the Alabama Crimson Tide and Jarrett Stidham of the Auburn Tigers made the cut. It’s still a bit of a mystery if Hurts will...

Recapping Alabama’s appearance at SEC Media Days

Three senior leaders represented the program well. Today was really the only day of interest to Alabama fans, as Nick Saban took the podium along with Damien Harris, Anfernee Jennings, and Ross Pierschbacher. As expected, the legendary coach drew the most interest and had plenty to say. On the quarterback situation, he would say nothing other than “We’ll see” and “To be determined.” He was then asked if he thought Jalen Hurts would still be on the roster week one, and his answer gave a rather explosive headline to the clickbaiters. “I have no idea. I expect him to be there. I...

Jumbo Package: Tide has 6 players on the top two award watch lists

The Maxwell and Bednarik are getting Processed as well We’ll start with the Maxwell Award watchlist. The Maxwell is given out out the end of the year to the nation’s top offensive player. Often times, that ends up going to the same guy that wins the Heisman, but many other times you’ll see it go to a runner-up who was within just a few votes of winning the Heisman. On the preseason watchlist this year, Alabama has QB Jalen Hurts, QB Tua Tagovailoa, and RB Damien Harris. Looks like the Maxwell folks are really covering their bases with that Alabama QB situation. The Maxwell’s...
