Saban's comments came after Hurts dropped back to pass, only to scramble for a 26-yard gain. "It's insane. I told him I'm going to get my trophy from two years ago and then we'll take a picture with his and it's like a father, son picture". "I think we've got some guys that can rush a little bit, and even though we're rushing four guys most of the time, there was way too much pressure in the pocket for the quarterback to be able to operate like we'd like".
For much of his time at Alabama, he's been the recipient of a level of criticism that's nowhere near normal for a player who lost the national title game as a true freshman and started every game of a title run as a sophomore. "Jalen made some good plays and throws, and I'm sure if you were to talk to him he would say, 'I wish there were things I did better and can improve on.' We've been very pleased with the progress that Mac Jones has made, so that gives us more depth at that position". Would the loser of the quarterback competition transfer?

However, Trump has thrown his support behind the administrator, tweeting earlier this month that Pruitt was doing a "great job". That's not to mention Pruitt's continued efforts to dismantle the legacy of the very agency he heads.
Jones, who was named the game's co-MVP with kicker Joseph Bulovas, threw for a game-high 289 yards on 23-of-35 passing and two touchdowns.
"(Jones), he's been a baller", tight end Irv Smith Jr. said. At worst, Averion made a hard situation his son is facing even more hard while placing additional and unnecessary pressure and scrutiny on his son.
Bulovas acquitted himself well in the game and was among the few obvious standouts, making five of his seven attempts.
"Coach Saban's job is to do what's best for his team". "He showed good consistency in both scrimmages and in practice when we do team work on field goals".
