    I knew he should have been a linebacker.

    Jalen will do great at OU. Idk if he will duplicate what Mayfield or Murray did but he will be just fine. Good luck OU.

    Oklahoma already is making Jalen soft. Took him a lot longer to lift that weight than it did with Cochran screaming in his ear.

    He's a beast. Can't think of many QBs that could legitimately play 3-4 other positions.

He will do well. he does not need to be compared to the previous Qb. he just need to be who he is.. and let that take care of itself.
    I'm sorry...I thought this was a discussion board...I was just noting that his previously noted deficiencies -- which, yes, he has begun to address -- were more of a need for him than lifting 500 lbs. I've known golfers who could drive it 330 but not make a 3 foot putt under pressure...yet they would keep practicing with the driver. When we only do what we can do well and easily, we can bet that we are not working on our deficiencies.

    Thanks Owen.

    I am a Jalen Hurts fan. As long as they are not playing Bama, I will pull for him and his team.

    Jalen is a serious strong man. He is a competitor who thrived in our weight room.
    He will do the same at Oklahoma. It's a little strange for a QB to be pushing the big guys,
    but Jalen is special. Our loss is your gain. He will be a good one for yall.

    Your argument is valid and profound, easier to dismiss as passive as opposed to constructive. I tend to agree with you, you guys remember our 3rd down rate under Jalen? I love everything Jalen resembles and respect him as much as you guys, but I agree with the right to make statements like this. I think its the writers duty to convey that point in a soft manner, were all good here tho. Jalen will be awesome, we all know it. Like a Cinderella story really?

    I actually have wondered before who steered him toward QB considering his body type and athleticism. I think he would make an amazing strong safety with further training. Let me put it this way: if you are a high school coach and have a light weight, fast guy you do not teach him to be a lineman or tight end. You make him a cornerback. I wonder if Jalens body type might have been more natural to something else.

    Coach Dad I would say “steered him toward QB.” My son was the point guard, shortstop, and quarterback in youth sports. I was his coach. In high school he dropped basketball and ended up in centerfield and the defensive backfield.

    Jalen did well with Kiffin's offense. Daboll's offense...not so much. I believe a lot of those "deficiencies" were the fault of Daboll. Jalen is a very talented quarterback. He may not get the passing totals of the last two at OU, but he'll be a winner. I'm excited to see him play this coming season.
