    I know he was going to do this. I doubt that beat-down by Clemson somehow endeared him to Bama or Saban.

    I’m surprised he stayed after being benched for a lesser, that’s right, lesser QB after a 27-2 run.

    Tua’s tears weighed more than Jalen’s efforts apparently.

    Someone told me Willie T has been really working Hurts fathe for some time now through back channels. Not allowed to contact him until he’s in the transfer portal, wink-wink.. He desperately wants to land Jalen. Hopefully this does not happen. Surely the Hurts are smarter than this.

    That was my point. Fields gets more karma.

    If FSU does happen to land Hurts it’s not going to make Willie a better a coach or CEO of a program

    I wonder what their senior QB thinks about that? Yeah, their QB is not transferring from FSU... staying for his senior season.

    If Fields doesn't get his hardship waiver (which he doesn't deserve) might not be a bad place for him.

    But it will buy Willie a few more years which works in our favor :)

    Hurts would have to sit out a year, wouldn’t he?

    Especially when game was all but over he was given some plays even though Tua was ineffective. It was exactly that during the georgia game when he was ineffective and they were falling behind that they inserted Tua. That's telling him he's just an afterthought, an emergency option but only sometimes. You could characterize it as disrespectful although I understand that Bama's staff was preoccupied at the time. But Hurts is allowed to be miopic and somewhat selfish at this point.

    And poor Hurts will hurt often. If they got to Francois they will get to Hurts even if not as often. At Bama he had an OL.

    The FSU O-line is so bad he would be crazy to go there and get mauled.

    I hate Alabama and Saban, but I think this kid has handled himself with class. He has never complained, thrown shade, acted out on social media. He has excelled at fotball his whole life, and when tod for the first time he was not good enough, he (by all reports) worked as hard as he could to get better. I do not know where he ends up (UCLA makes sense to me), but getting benched in the title game and coming back and doing everything he has done for Bama' this year really shows maturity from a young man.

    No, I think he graduated and could play right away.

    You think Hurts is better than Tua? I like how Hurts handled himself through the situation, but he's not better than Tua.

    Is Hurts eligible to be drafted?
