Jalen Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa
Today we spoke about the Heisman Trophy "Watch List" and our Maxwell Award "Watch List", where we feature the players we believe have the most legitimate chance to win these prestigious college football awards. We will have our own awards at the end of the season for each level of play in collegiate football, including the NAIA level. We will announce our "watch lists" for each college football award from each division and start to announce our College Football Today awards for the 2018 season soon.
Alabama is Favored to Win in Every Game This Season.
Stephen A. Smith on Alabama, Tua Tagovailoa and Jalen Hurts
Just like Lane Kiffin stated that Kyler Murray should stick to baseball, Stephen A. Smith should stick to covering basketball for ESPN. Just because he was at the national championship, as were many, does not give him any credibility as all he does is raise his voice and make preposterous assessments that he knows nothing about. Has anyone pointed to the fact that Coach Kirby Smart may have game planned very strategically against Jalen Hurts' skill-set and was completely unaware of what Tagovailoa brought to the playing field? No, because they are to quick to jump on the most "trending" team in America because people like Stephen A. Smith need something to get loud and obnoxious about. They prey on Alabama fans because they are the most loyal and winning fans in America and causing any turbulence in that close-knit inner circle they see as needed. That being said, Coach Saban has stated on numerous occasions that we could wind up seeing both players on the field for the Crimson Tide. Which brought me to a offense that I personally developed for two quarterbacks to play at once. One of the two quarterbacks or both would have to be a "dual-threat" style QB in order to run this offense and both be able to throw the football. Having a left and right handed QB in the game at one time that could both make plays would be very hard to game plan against, but normally the QB position is a solo job. Both QB's are capable of leading a team that is projected to win every game to the national championship and both will get the opportunity to compete. Both QB's have made comments over the off-season and this quote by Tagovailoa would make me question where his head was at heading into the fall.
“I called my dad and asked him if my offer to the University of Southern California was still available,” Tagovailoa said via Hawaii News Now. “I wanted to leave. I told my dad I wanted to go to a school where I thought it’d be easier for me and wouldn’t challenge me so much.”
Jalen Hurts Transferring
Averion stops mid-sentence because the idea of his son not playing for Alabama isn’t one he takes lightly. What if Jalen doesn’t win the job, he is asked?
He shakes his head slowly, answers begrudgingly, “Well, he’d be the biggest free agent in college football history.”
The Grass is Not Always Greener on the Other Side of the Fence.
Jalen Hurts is only 15 credits away from graduating from the University of Alabama and does not appear to be transferring in his recent interview. That being said, If I were the media, I would just let the chips fall where they may and stop speculating on Coach Saban and the Dynasty he has created through hard work and learning from past mistakes. With all of the hardware that Coach Nick Saban has accumulated through-out his storied career, I think he can handle the situation better than anyone in all of football today. So shut the hell up and lets play football. Maybe you will get to sit at another Alabama National Championship victory again or you will be laid off like your other friends at ESPN Stephen A. Smith.
