Alabama’s Hurts: The narrative has already been created
Jalen Hurts finally got to give his own take on Alabama’s much talked about quarterback situation.
Since getting benched for the second half of the national title game, the two-year starter with the sparkling record has had to remain silent publicly about the situation. Hurts was blunt in his first chance to speak with reporters since the aftermath of that game in Atlanta at Saturday’s media day.
“… But that’s always been the elephant in the room. For me, no one came up to me the whole spring, coaches included, no one asked me how I felt,” Hurts said. “No one asked me what was on my mind. No one asked me how I felt about the things that were going on. Nobody asked me what my future held.”
The narrative is that he and Tua Tagovailoa are engaged in college football’s most talked about quarterback battle. Thenfreshman Tagovailoa came off the bench in the second half to lift Alabama to a come-from-behind win over Georgia, heaving the game-winning touchdown pass in overtime.
