    Which probably means he'll graduate in December like Jalen did. If the path to playing time (starting next year) looks uncertain, I'd say there's a real possibility he'd employ the graduate transfer rule to go somewhere for his 4th year.

    I hope you are right about the Young man.

    I think this is a very likely scenario for Mack. I also do not believe Taulia and Tyson will both be around after next year (2020 season).

    Provided his brother stays healthy Taulia will be your starter day 1 2020 & 2021 IMHO. Lia likes to take off an run sometimes which could affect his health but he has the same vision and "IT" factor that Tua has. At least, that is what I saw the past two years at Thompson. He'll be a Pro someday.

    Well, here's hoping that every time he's in, he hands off and a RB will run for another TD. Currently 100% at handing off with a TD scored. That would be awesome. Tua throws for TDs and Tia hands off for TDs. Sounds good to me.

    By the way, I'll bet no one in NCAA history has a 100% hand-off TD rate. Let's maintain that stat.

    If Taulia is our starter next year do you really think Tyson will leave with his family ties?

    If Mack Jones is not the starter in 2020 I think he transfers. If Taulia is the starter I do believe Tyson would transfer especially if we sign a big time QB this December. If Tyson is not as good as we think then he may not transfer and be content to hold the clipboard and signal in plays. We have signed other QBs higher rated than Tyson and Taulia and they did not work out. It is anybody's guess at this point.

    Assuming both Tyson and Taulia maintain their redshirts this year, and Lia wins the job next year: yes, I do think Tyson transfers. Mac, too.

    Assuming Tyson redshirts, and Taulia burns the 'shirt in 2019, it puts them a year apart in eligibility. Tyson might, maybe, stick around, figuring Taulia lasts only through the 2021 season. At which point, Tyson would be a RS Junior for the 2022 season.

    I wouldn't count on it, though. Saturday's statement on the #3 QB, as they stand today, was unmistakeable. And today's transfer world isn't what most of us grew up with.

    You can't reason a man out of a position he didn't reason himself into.

    Lia has a much quicker release than Mack.
    AND
    Lia is a better runner than both Tua and Mack. (Maybe)
    Lia has a much higher upside than Mack, but no PT against college teams.
    Lia is going to be brought along 'Just In Case'.
    AND
    If Lia should catch up with Mack... 3 good Quarterbacks.

    I expect if NM State game goes as expected, CNS's intentions will be obvious.

    I have not seen much of Taulia, but what little I have seen, he is not Tua. Of course he has time to develop. I may be wrong, but I get the feeling that Tua and Taulia's father is the only decision maker in their family and he wants it his way with both of his boys, which is okay, but it may not always be that way. Would Tua still be at Alabama had Hurts been the starter last year? This is not meant as a criticism of the father or his sons, just an observation.

    I think Lia will be the starter unless we sign a very good, Young, QB this year.
