Man was that guy impressive or what? GA had Hurts # and he couldn't do anything. Pretty bold but good move on Saban's part to play the kid.

One thing I was the most impressed with was how humble he was when they spoke to him after the game. I was also impressed by Hurts attitude after he was pulled. A lot of time the starters will be sulked up on the bench in their feelings but he wasn't. He was cheering his teammates on and really building the freshman QB up on the sidelines.


It was a great game.

Jalen Hurts attitude was incredible. It will be interesting to see what happens with the duo next year. Do they try Hurts and a different position. Do they start him again next year to see what happens?

Props to Saban. They send in a Freshman QB to throws and ugly interception not long after, but sticks with his gut and wins a National Championship. I don't know that too many coaches would have done what Saban did. Maybe I am wrong.

Lots of Bama fans have ruled him out already. They have quickly forgot he's 25-2 as a starter. I think they can use both of them at QB and win another NC next year.

Hurts will end up at RB most likely.

His NFL future will not be at QB, so he needs to find his best position.

Not a chance Saban ever starts him over Tua again.

And yes, both of their attitudes was refreshing.

hurts is a good college QB not great.

I think playing behind a good oLine with good backs & WRs that can also block made him look better then he was at times

I think his run game made him look better as a QB.

even the play by play guys pointed out any pressure at all even a little he would almost panic, first read not open eyes down looking to run.

His not an NFL QB I pointed that out before Saban benched him last night I've seen comments on & off TNdeer he was an NFL caliber QB ( even though I was told last night I have not seen comments on TNDeer about hurts to NFl) but it just took a quick search to see I was right.

Love his attitude once he was benched, freshman QB looked good. Bama & UGA may have good backups looking to leave now.

Hurts early enrolled in Spring semester 2016. I assume he's taken courses in the prior two summer sessions as well so when Spring Semester 2018 ends, he'll likely have seven semesters under his belt. I wonder how many credit hours he will have by end of this semester? I doubt it, but what if he has enough to graduate will he take the graduate transfer route?

Conversely, he also has to think about how he got the starting job. He was a true freshman that replaced an upperclassman in the USC game last year. If he performs and Tua doesn't at some point down the road, he'll get the job back.

As an Ohio State fan, I wish our coach cared less about hurt feelings of players and staff.

Having Hurts AND TUA BOTH in the roster is a good problem to have .

I think Hurts will still be on the field as a back...just not a quarterback.

Maybe... We won't know till the first snap of the ball in regular season play next year. At least it gives us something to talk about in the Sports Talk Forum between now and then. :poke: :tu: :super:

Kind of a bittersweet NC. Happy For Alabama but sad for Pruitt as that was his last NC to ever be in :(
