    I do wish him well in life. I hope he's headed for an NFL career. But I guess I just wish the Alabama ties were not there.
    Concur with all you said except for the last sentence. ESPN & CBS & whoever covers OU will have unceasing chatter, video, highlights, documentaries about Jalen and how he persevered through so much adversity at Alabama and how OU has given him a fresh start. This is especially true if he plays at the same or higher level which he exhibited throughout his time at Alabama. He's a winner. He'll win and their perfect scenario is if OU-UA is a semifinal or final game and OU punches out UA. It will be sweet satisfaction for all non-UA people.

    That said, while I'll be fine with it the first time I see it, the unending nature will get under my skin (as does ANY story that they don't let loose of (I got tired of seeing all the Tua - Hawaii family stuff over and over and over and over and over!).

    The story really doesn't matter until and unless OU plays UA at the end of the season. All the best to Jalen and his newfound glory. He still has to keep the job by performing well.

    Maybe people would be happier if we just had a designated Jalen thread? that way people who want to avoid it can but people like me who like the updates can still get them.

    The sports media (and all media) is really good at beating a story to death and beyond.

    Well, at least the current OU players will be able to see Jalen's national championship ring and know what one looks like.

    My take: We have Tua. Everybody else doesn't... Eat it!

    If the new threads keep popping up that will likely happen.

    We all love Jalen and generally want to see him successful, but we also all know where to find info on JH if we want to read it.

    Hurts a co-captain

    Iím just going to say what is on my mind. I know there are people who like the new transfer portal....Iím not one of them. Iím old school I guess. Thereís no point in telling me all its virtues...youíre welcome to your opinion and Iím welcome to mine.

    Re: Hurts a co-captain

    I am happy for Hurts, as he has been one of my favorite Bama players over the years.

    I kind of wish he was still with BAMA as the backup, but that is selfish of me to wish that. He has his future to think about. I just hope Mac does well as our backup.

    If BAMA somehow does not make the playoffs (I think we can if we have no more major injuries), I will be pulling for Hurts and Oklahoma. I certainly do not want Clemson or UGA to win it all, especially Clemson again.

    I heard something about Mark Ingram's father being in prison, but I did not quite catch it...


    ... the first thirty times ESPN told me about it.

    Re: Hurts a co-captain

    This right here, folks!!!

    I love Jalen Hurts...and respect him greatly for the way that he carried himself last year. Heck...Daniel Moore would probably tell you that I was the inspiration behind the title of his painting that features Jalen, called ďCrimson Redemption.Ē

    All this to say...even though Iíll be pulling for him to have a great year, I donít want to hear about it on my Bama message board. Not the same way that I wish we didnít have to see posts from the UGA crowd on the recruiting board...but still...Iíd rather not see it here.

    Just offering my opinion...which doesnít amount to much in the grand design of the universe...but if you could make the UGA posters go away...lots of us would be appreciative.

    I'm with you. I don't wish him any ill will, but I'm not rooting for him any more.
