    Just coach speak or is there a real chance Hurts may not be the starter at OU?

    My guess it's just coach speak. But CLR says Hurts has to "win the job first" when fielding questions from the media at Big 12 media day.

    That would be prudent to make him win the job...……………….and what happens if he doesn't win it?

    He will ride the pine for most of his senior season. Probably a lot more so than he would have had he stayed here.

    I hope he wins the job but I won't be surprised if he doesn't. Depends on his field vision and decision making improvement.

    I think Hurts will be the starter for game 1 but that doesn't mean he's the starter the whole season. OU is usually deep at QB so if Hurts struggles at all it won't take much for Riley to make a change. I'm not convinced he's going to be a prolific passer just because it's the Big 12.

    And that would be a damned shame. He would have been more valuable here...

    If Hurts doesn't win the job & a younger less experienced QB beats him out..The Sooner's will be in the hunt for a NC, cause Hurts is one of the better QB's in the country, Oklahoma will have themselves a really really good QB on their hands..If Hurts doesn't win the job..

    Maybe Riley's a better QB coach with a better offense than anything we have but even in the Georgia game he held the ball a lot longer than he should have and wanted to run.

    I think Georgia's defense was gassed which helped.

    Unless he has an awful Fall, I imagine Hurts' worst case scenario is that he starts to begin the season.
    I owe it to the people to have a signature...so here goes nothing!

    Politicking. That freshman QB coming in was under the impression that he would walk right into the job (this was before Jalen decided to transfer). Coach Riley just has to walk a tight rope here.

    He does have a red shirt available and 4 games to use before its burned.

    I think he wins the job, big 12 defenses will not be able to deal with him as a runner just has to br made official but who knows

    Jalen is a great competitor, but I wouldn't go that far.
