What Nick Saban said about Jalen Hurts' A-Day performance

Jalen Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa were all smiles following last year's Sugar Bowl win over Clemson but how much longer will the good times last Alabama Basketball: Braxton Key set to transfer
June Sullivan | 23 April, 2018, 21:40

Hurts threw for 195 yards. With so much scrutiny on his inability to throw the ball and the emergence of sophomore QB Tua Tagovailoa in the College Football playoff, Hurts' chances of remaining the starter for 2018 are dwindling. The biggest thing moving forward that we would like the players to focus on is the individual improvements the players need to make, so they have the best opportunity to out-perform the people they have to play against next year. "I think we have got some guys that can rush a little bit, and even though we were rushing four guys most of the time, there was way too much pressure in the pocket for the quarterback to be able to operate like we would like".

It was different this time for Tagovailoa, however.

The game is scheduled to start at about 2 p.m. ET and will be broadcast nationally on ESPN. Saban has made it clear from the start of the spring that the decision on the starting quarterback will not be rushed, and the choice will likely come closer to the Crimson Tide's season opener.

"We've been very pleased with the progress that Mac Jones has made, so that gives us more depth at that position", Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban said.

Rumors speculating Hurts may end up looking to transfer will only continue to ignore following this spring, especially with Tagovailoa going into the offseason as the new hero in town after guiding Alabama back in the national championship game.

Jones secured a share of Most Valuable Player honors after throwing for 289 and two touchdowns, while leading the Crimson team to a 24 - 12 victory.

Bulovas acquitted himself well in the game and was among the few obvious standouts, making five of his seven attempts. He was named co-MVP along with Jones. Quinnen Williams says that the team has put forth more effort to be more like the 2016 defense that tailed a total of 54 sacks.

Dylan Moses led both teams with 10 tackles.
