ESPN Drops Video That Is Borderline Cruel To Alabama’s Quarterback

David Hookstead | Reporter

ESPN dropped a video to hype the upcoming college football season, and I don’t think Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts will be overly happy with it.

They captioned the video, “These QBs are ready for their return.” The video featured several quarterbacks, including Hurts.

This is borderline mean for Hurts. Nobody is expecting Hurts to take too many snaps this season, and I think everybody with eyes knows Tua Tagovailoa is almost certainly going to be locked in as the starter from the start of the season until the end. (RELATEDSEC FANS DON’T LIKE TO USE FACTS WHEN DISCUSSING COLLEGE FOOTBALL)

You know it, I know it and Hurts probably knows it himself. It’s just the harsh reality of the situation that Alabama finds itself in right now. (RELATED: THE COLLEGE FOOTBALL WORLD SHOULD FEAR WISCONSIN FOR ONE SIMPLE REASON)

Hurts is a talented guy, he’s a great athlete and he can run but he struggles to make deep throws. You know who doesn’t struggle much? Tua. That guy can slice and dice with the best of them.

Instead of ESPN just going along with what we all know — that Tua is the guy — they’re out here pretending that Hurts is going to make some grand return to the field. It’s almost cruel for us to pretend that’s going to happen. It’s like telling the kid his dog went to a farm instead of teaching him about the reality of death. You’re not helping anybody.

You can probably bet the bank that Hurts will eventually transfer from Alabama, and there’s nothing wrong that. The man wants his reps, and I don’t think he’ll get them as long as Tua is ahead of him.
