    Hard to gauge improvement vs bad teams.

    Hurts looks better than 2017. He still has a problem with consistency with ball placement on slants and bubble screens. Those routes live or die against quality competition by how easy it is for receiver to catch the ball and get back to top speed. Still, that knock is not uncommon for even solid college quarterback. We've won national titles with QBs who struggled with the same things.

    The thing OU does best on offense with Riley is scheme wide-open receivers and I can tell Hurts is not gonna leave much of that easy money on the table in 2019.
    I owe it to the people to have a signature...so here goes nothing!

    His demeanor and cadence....great job by our SI department. Reminds me of someone else I listen to every Monday & Thursday.

    No one is going to outwork Jalen.

    His pressers are maddening for OU fans and the press as well. It's as if when he opens his mouth Saban speaks. He talks like a 40 year old coach. Other players are constantly having to tell reporters that behind the scenes he has a great personality and is very humorous. You have to also remember, Mayfield was extremely out going and loquacious. Murray somewhere in between. When Hurts speaks he speaks from the perspective of the whole team and if you understand coaching philosophy it's very comforting. He is on a mission.

    That LSU defense is more of a product of a high flying offense. FACT!!!!

    It has even had an effect on Bama’s defense. You gain in one area but give up something in another.
