Jalen Hurts understandably left Alabama to further his career, but he will always consider himself to be a part of the Tide family. As such, he has chosen a split Alabama/Oklahoma helmet for the Senior Bowl. This makes sense as both schools use the almost the same paint color. It isn’t exact, however, and the helmet was painted accurately for both schools.
It might have been the first time he saw it, but if you watch the video you'll hear them say that Jalen is signing for one charity as well. I seriously doubt that they would have volunteered him for that without sort of discussion.I found a video with a bit more info, it seems when it was announced it was a surprise to Jalen. I am a bit concern his smile and stuff could just by his normal polished, classy Jalen self. I would like to know if wearing both is truly what he wants on Senior Bowl.
Perhaps not like this but the all-star games have always had players that took artistic liberty with their helmets. I remember players with all kinds of logos on their helmets.I don't remember them doing this for anyone else. They definitely did not do this for Russell Wilson, so why do it for Jalen unless he wanted it?
They probably never thought about it before. With Jalen playing here and being so popular it seems logical an All-Star game based in the state would want to go the extra mile for him.I don't remember them doing this for anyone else. They definitely did not do this for Russell Wilson, so why do it for Jalen unless he wanted it?
Probably not - No way you beat LSU with Jalen (he tried that with OU's offense and only scored 28 points) and Auburn has figured out how to stop him. More importantly, Auburn has the defensive personnel to stop him.Does Bama make the playoffs with Jalen Hurts still at Bama? I say yes, We May or May not have lost to LSU, But I believe we would have beaten Auburn.
Offense was not the issue @ Clemson w/out a Lake...I think this is cool, Jalen will always be a Bama Graduate! Can’t say the same about OU! Of course, I think he had a 4.0 GPA in HS, so maybe he has a degree from OU, I mean I would never make assumptions about the young man.
Separate question, and maybe we should have another discussion thread

People also seem to forget our inability to do anything at all against Auburn in 2017.People seem to forget about those.
