Hurts struggles in Alabama Spring Game

Jalen Hurts threw for 195 yards, no touchdowns and one interception.

"It was hard this spring with some of the players we had out that are really good leaders and guys that really impact other people, but that created an opportunity for other players to have to step up and do that, and I was pleased with the progress we made in those areas", Saban said after the A-Day game. My job is to do what's best for Jalen-and make no mistake, Jalen is a quarterback, and he wants to play quarterback. I didn't. I saw Jalen Hurts, with someone who I have a great deal of admiration for and who I still believe can get Alabama to the championship game every year, it's just a matter of whether he can win the one or two biggest games on the schedule. His comments also seem to prove that he prefers to see his quarterback try to pass rather than run when in trouble.

Jones was named the game's co-MVP with kicker Joseph Bulovas and threw for a game-high 289 yards on 23-of-35 passing and two touchdowns.

Airline: Passenger removed after physical altercation on Miami flight to Chicago
American Airlines says the man and another passenger got into an argument and that's when the crew asked the man to deplane. Flight 2446 to Chicago's O'Hare airport, scheduled to leave at 9:30 p.m., was delayed about an hour.

He says it wasn't an easy decision to make. With sophomore playmakers Henry Ruggs III and DeVonta Smith on the White team, and 6-foot-6 Tyrell Shavers injured, Townsend could get plenty of opportunities with the Crimson offense, and could be primed for a breakout performance against what will be an inexperienced Tide secondary, especially at the nickel/star defensive back spot Fitzpatrick held down last season. What was unexpected, was that Redshirt Freshman Mac Jones would win that battle versus Jalen Hurts.

Hurts was also sacked seven times as the offensive line struggled at times.

Saban emphasized that the disparity in the two quarterbacks' performances could be attributed to the fact that Jones was competing against Alabama's second team defense, while Hurts was going against Alabama's first team defense. "He showed good consistency in both scrimmages and in practice when we do team work on field goals".

Ultimately, a lot will change between Saturday and the start of the season, but one thing is for sure: The Tide will once again enter the year on the shortlist of national title favorites, and as such, even their exhibition games are well worth watching.

"I'm not necessarily satisfied where we are, and I don't think anyone on our team should be satisfied where we are", Saban said.

The rising junior quarterback did not play very well.
