OT: As expected, Jalen Hurts is transferring away from Alabama

I have a hard time thinking classy thoughts about any Alabama player, since I want them all to lose, but Hurts handled his situation as well as one could imagine. I wish him well.

Specifically, I wish him well somewhere that doesn't affect us. I could honestly see Penn State making a run at him, he'd play well in McSorley's role. Hopefully Frames isn't smart enough to think of this.

I wish we had the ability to drop a QB who had only lost 2 games his collegiate career for someone better ... How does Alabama start true freshmen QBs yet we have the “QB guru” and have to depend on transfers

Peters is still relatively young in QB years and has never played before an adequate OL.   I think it’s unfair to classify him in that regard. He is behind two good QBs right now.  

I am sure Jake Ruddock would be happy to discuss the merits of Harbaugh’s ability to develop QB talent with any open minded person.

partly because we continue to depend on transfers instead of playing our own qb recruits...yeah Ruddock did a great job when we needed him, and yeah Shea brought a lot of life to the program. From what I saw out of Dylan McCaffrey and even a little from Milton, we have two studs who might struggle the first year....or may actually kill it...and in year two and three would be what we've been looking for. If we continue down this path of tranfer U, we will never have a solid quarterback. Why would you come to Michigan knowing you won't play, because the next transfer is coming?

Good lord, how much eligibility does he have left?  Seems like he was the backup on Saban's first National Champion at 'bama.
