    I'm glad he stayed this year. He sent the Dawgs packing for another year.

    Tech just hired bamas o line coach too. I think Collins is gonna do well here in atlanta. Looking forward to them making inroads recruiting the metro area. After all techs still the reigning national champion of the state. Think uga still remembers that :)

    Makes sense for GaTech. Depends on what hurts wants and it's definitely a risk for him. New offense is gonna have growing pains. Does he want to play for a championship? Does he just want a platform for the NFL? There are options out there that can better accomplish all of those goals

    If he goes to Houston, D'Eriq King will get the Trask treatment.

    Why? Not trying to be snarky, legitimately curious. I know they got the O Line coach but what else makes that a fit?

    Seems like a smart kid and not to be an asshole but dude isn’t the 2nd coming of John elway. He’s become serviceable passing but that’s about it. His legs are still is strength. Techs gonna be turning that whole thing over so he’ll need his legs. What coach that runs a wide open offense is wanting a kid that has accuracy issues with only one year to mold him. Don’t see the up side. Keys at least gives him some comfort. And this isn’t a shot a college towns bec I used to love partying in Athens , statesboro auburn etc but let’s be honest atlanta is practically the other side of the moon compared to those places. Let’s be honest , there’s hardly a job u can’t get with a degeee from ga text.

    Hearing Miami.

    Alabama qb Coach Enos to be scum OC. Logical for hurts to follow.

    Maryland or FIU would offer a similar offense with OCs he is familiar with. Now with Enos going to Miami, perhaps Hurts finds similar offense there as well? Think it is one of these 3 programs.

    Not to nitpick, but Lane Kiffin is at FAU not FIU.

    Doesn't sound like you watched Jalen much this season. His passing accuracy moved up about 3 levels from where it was last season.
    51 of 70 for 72.9%
    LINK

    Year School Conf Class Pos G Cmp Att Pct Yds Y/A AY/A TD Int Rate
    *2016 Alabama SEC FR QB 15 240 382 62.8 2780 7.3 7.4 23 9 139.1
    *2017 Alabama SEC SO QB 14 154 255 60.4 2081 8.2 9.3 17 1 150.2
    *2018 Alabama SEC JR QB 13 51 70 72.9 765 10.9 11.9 8 2 196.7

    He graduated already from Alabama last month and has already enrolled in a grad program, from what I understand.

    Smart kid with a ton of integrity and character.

    I'm happy for him and look forward to seeing him play somewhere - hopefully for a championship.

    Doesn't matter - his accuracy improved between last and this season.

    Period.

    Boss.

    But you didn't know that because you didn't watch him play.

    Boss.

    :rolleyes:
