    LOL yes he was. There may have been a plan to play both guys but there's a reason one guy spent the 2nd half riding the pine while the other played the rest of the season.

    If Tua looks good in fall camp, is pushing JH for the starting job and JH struggles in the opener? You guys are nuts to think they wouldn't put Tua into the game, down by two scores in the third.

    You can consider all sorts of scenarios but I don't see yours happening. That would send an incredibly bad signal to the whole team to yank your returning proven starter who led you last year to what should have been a NC last year when you face a little adversity in the 3rd quarter of the 2017 season. If your scenario happens we will have a horrible year.

    I dont think that scenario is as crazy as it sounds. Very very unlikely but possible. Hurts would have to completely lose it mentally though for that scenario to have any thought.

    We'll know if Hurts passing has improved game 1. If so, no Tua. If not, Tua.

    Saban's not going to crash and burn game one without giving Tua a look.

    Repeat after me

    Hurts better = no Tua
    Hurts not = Tua

    And that's all you need to know.

    Hurts is getting atleast 4 games despite how good or bad he is against FSU.

    Repeat after me. It is a lot more complicated than that.

    Especially when CNS saw the Drew Henson saga unfold right in front of him.

    Re: Let's Talk about 2017

    From the CBS artilce in another thread:

    CBS: Is it a quarterback battle going through August?

    Saban: "I've never said anything about it being a quarterback battle. I'm not going to say anything about it being a quarterback battle now.
    "We have a quarterback who played really well and was SEC Player of the Year last year. I'm not saying he can't be beat out. I'm not saying the players here have an opportunity to beat him out. But that's the case at every position."

    Coach just told both QBs what they need to hear.

    Yup. Jalen will be working on improving his weaknesses from last year and Tua will be learning the ropes. Fall camp will be fun to keep up with.
