Jalen Hurts’s mother defends Alabama QB against criticism

Marvin Gentry-USA TODAY Sports

Jalen Hurts dealt with some backlash over the weekend after he criticized the Alabama coaching staff for the way they have handled the team’s quarterback situation, and his mother wants to help set the record straight.

Hurts, who was benched in favor of Tua Tagovailoa during the national championship game, told the media on Saturday that neither Nick Saban nor other members of Alabama’s coaching staff asked him how he felt about the situation until it was too late. Hurts’s mother, Pamela, later took to Facebook to lash out against those who have bashed her son for speaking his mind.

“Wow ignorance is (bliss),” Pamela Hurts wrote in a post, via Justin Smith of TDAlabamaMag.com. “When has Jalen ever spoken to media about anything other than the team? When has he ever whined, pouted or talk about what ‘y’all’ don’t know takes place behind the scenes? There’s a reason why players aren’t allowed to speak to the media. Jalen spoke his truth, finally, after 3 years of being compliant and controlled. You have no idea what is and has been going on — and most likely, never will."

“Folks quick to speak highly on his character and demeanor, but know he is completely opposite of those accolades today. If you can turn on this young man today and not your president for any of his rhetoric, you were never with him to begin with.”

Jalen Hurts is frustrated with Alabama

Mickey Welsh/Advertiser via USA TODAY NETWORK

Things are not going well for Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts. In fact, he might not be their quarterback for much longer. And per ESPN’s Alex Scarborough, frustrations are mounting.

“…when I see that those things are being said, that’s silly because, ‘He said this, he said that, maybe Coach [Nick] Saban said this,” Hurts starts. “Whoever said whatever, what did Jalen say? Not a thing.”

But how did this all start?

Well, it all goes back to last season’s National Championship game. The Crimson Tide would break Georgia’s hearts in the end, but it wasn’t because of Hurts. Saban would bench him at halftime to bring in Tua Tagovailoa. The rest, as they say, is history. However, Saban has said Hurts might not even be on the roster once the season starts. Is that shocking to you? Because it absolutely is to the former starting signal-caller.

Jalen Hurts critical of Alabama coaches over handling of QB situation

The Alabama Crimson Tide have a quarterback controversy on their hands, and have since last year’s national championship game. But one of the quarterbacks involved does not appear happy with how it has been handled.

Jalen Hurts, who was benched during the championship game in favor of Tua Tagovailoa, has been the subject of transfer rumors and chatter all summer. Speaking to the media on Saturday, Hurts said no coaches had talked to him about how he felt during the summer, and the attempts to address things with him now come too late.

Hurts also rebutted coach Nick Saban, who had said he wasn’t sure if Hurts would be on the roster when the season opened.

The Curious Case of Schwartz, Alabama’s Mystery 1906 Baseball Coach

Schwartz is #8

I was told about this mystery on reddit recently. Alabama’s baseball team first played on July 1, 1892 (a win). In the program’s history, the 1906 season stands out among them all. The squad went 4-16-1 (.216), the absolute worst season in Alabama baseball history. That would be the only season a man named Schwartz coached Alabama.

The official Alabama records list a first (or at least a nickname) and last name for every single coach in Crimson Tide history, except for the 1906 coach. Schwartz is, simply, Schwartz.

Why? Who is he? How is such a notable coach in our program’s history known in the official records by just his last name? I had to find out and unravel this mystery.

And I did.

Charles Schwartz was hired as the baseball coach likely in January, 1906. The earliest record I found was from this January 18, 1906 edition of The Montgomery Advertiser.

So who's going where? Here's the buzz on the top five players in the 2019 class and a handful of other noteworthy prospects.

D.J. Jeffries' dad says Kentucky unprofessional after decommitment

9:40 AM ETEmailprint

The father of five-star forward D.J. Jeffries said Kentucky was "unprofessional" in the way it handled his son's decommitment from the school Monday.

"We talked with Kentucky, and it kinda shocked me," Corey Jeffries told John Martin on ESPN Radio's Memphis affiliate Tuesday morning. "They were kinda unprofessional. They didn't handle the news the way I expected them to handle it, being professionals."

D.J. Jeffries, a five-star forward from Mississippi's Olive Branch High School, announced Monday that he was decommitting from Kentucky and reopening his recruitment.

New NCAA rules, Penny Hardaway's emergence and LeBron James were among the dominant storylines on the recruiting trail in July.
