Does Jalen Hurts make sense for Jimbo Fisher?

Bleacher Report's Matt Hayes was told by Jalen's father, Averion Hurts, essentially that he screwed up by opening the door for an opportunity for Tagovailoa. Tagovailoa responded by throwing for 166 yards and three touchdowns, including the game-winning score in overtime. "Even though there's going to be a significant effort on a lot of folks' part - none in this room obviously - to make this a public thing, but it's going to be handled in a very private manner".

"You know, Jalen has had a really good spring from the standpoint that we've really tried to focus on continuing to help him develop confidence in the passing game", Saban said following Alabama's second scrimmage over the weekend.

Expect a decision on this to drag out for a while, especially with Tagovailoa recovering from a hand injury suffered during spring ball.

While Hurts' father may have hinted at a transfer, Nick Saban was less revealing when he spoke with the media today.

An unnamed SEC coach said in the same BR article, "Don't kid yourself - every single one of us would love to be in Nick's situation.But that's a tough spot". He loves Alabama, loves Coach Saban and everything about that place. We don't want any players to not be able to fulfill their goals and aspirations in our program.

The all-important series will see India play England in three Twenty20 matches, three ODIs and five Tests. Hats off to him! "I actually asked Virat to talk to my brother personally about batting, about cricket".

Jalen Hurts, who has held the starting job since his second game as a true freshman at Alabama in 2016, still has two years of eligibility remaining if he were to choose to transfer.

Playing at Duke would still allow Hurts to get the exposure of playing major Division I football in a power conference like the ACC. The intimation, of course, was that Hurts would transfer if/when he lost the competition.

Calling Hurts, the "biggest free agent in college football history" might be a bit of an exaggeration, but he would be greatly sought after. But he also made clear that his son wants to play quarterback.

And until Saban makes his choice, this topic will dominate the college football conversation.

Hurts completed just under 62% of his passes in his two seasons at Alabama where he threw for 40 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
