Along that line of thought I tend to believe that there are several teams and players who are going to compete hard to get into the playoffs this year. I think of Jack Fromm, Joe Burrow, Jalen and needless to say Trevor Lawrence. It is healthy to recognize that Dabo, Riley and Smart are going to be forces to be reckoned with for years to come. Different but very effective approaches. Who is going to emerge to become a force from the BIG?He played against a pretty good defense in the SECCG last year. I know that they prepared for Tua, but that was still remarkable since GA played against Jalen the year before, so they had a plan for him.
The Jalen Hurts that played in 2018 was far better than the player that started for Alabama the previous 2 seasons.
