    Jalen Hurts is just getting started as his Alabama career winds down

    http://www.espn.com/college-football...de-quarterback

    But when he was asked after the game what it felt like to be in this moment, he answered cryptically, "It kinda feels like I'm breaking my silence." In a hallway after the news conference, he said he didn't really feel like talking. When asked if there was any deeper meaning to his earlier statement, he said, "That's you assuming."
    The next morning, during a television interview with ESPN, Hurts recalled last year's national championship game and how, in a hotel room that night, he cried in his parents' arms. He asked, "What are we going to do now?" and he said his dad told him, "We are going to fight."
    It was a rare instance of Hurts dropping his guard publicly and admitting that it had been a long year for him.
    "I've been fighting for a year," he said, "not knowing what the result would be. Competing, keeping faith, and God was with me yesterday."
    He says he has applied to graduate school for sports management. The unanswered follow-up question is, "Which school?"
    For now, Hurts is keeping his focus on finishing strong and helping his team any way he can on Monday, when it plays Clemson for the national championship. He doesn't want his future to be part of the conversation and has done his best to detach himself from speculation, but he should be used to the chatter by now.

    Whatever happens next, Hurts' legacy at Alabama is already set. As many people have pointed out, his is a story worthy of the big screen.
    Might he be saving his best act for last? The flashes of improvement we've seen from him this season could add up to something special as a senior.
    Enos swelled with pride when he talked about how far Hurts has come -- how he has improved in not just throwing the ball but also reading coverages and keeping his eyes downfield. On Hurts' second play of the game against Georgia, on third-and-long and trailing by a touchdown in the fourth quarter, Enos saw all of that come together at once.


    "He stands in there, relocates and waits for the route to open," Enos recalled. "Doesn't panic, his feet are great, and he makes that throw" -- a first-down pass to tight end Irv Smith Jr. -- "then we go on that long drive and score to tie.
    "To me, that play right there, that third-down play, I told him, 'That was huge.' Not only for us but for him."
    We are champions. We can prove it! *counting 15 championships*

    Hmmm... Interesting.

    You know we will never really be able to thank Jalen enough for what he's done here.

    Doesn't mean he's for sure staying but it's a good sign. Probably has to apply now in case he stays..

    Yeah in the grand scheme it doesn’t mean a lot, but it does make things interesting going forward.

    I think he was just covering all bases. He may have options that we may not know about.

    Barton Simmons is reporting his name is now in the transfer portal.
    Just a barner.


    Beware the odds of March.

    I hate that he is transferring, but I get it. I am sure wherever he goes, he will be great. Bama fans will never forget him, unless he goes to auburn.
