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.
