Jalen Hurts appears frustrated with Alabama: 'No one asked me how I felt'
Jalen Hurts has been silent all summer about his QB competition with Tua Tagovailoa, but things changed at Alabama’s media day Saturday.
Hurts met with reporters, and, boy, he didn’t hold much back. He appears frustrated with the lack of communication from the program at how they’ve handled the external noise of the QB competition. Instead of talking about it and getting it out in the open, everyone, coaches included, was just hoping it’d blow over, according to Hurts.
“This is a situation that is uncontrollable,” Hurts told reporters. “Coaches can’t control this situation. They dictate who plays. But as far as variations to it, they don’t control it honestly. This whole spring ever since the game, they kind of wanted to let it play out. They kind of, I guess, didn’t think it was a thing or tried to let it die down like it wasn’t something there because it has always been the elephant in the room.
“No one came up to me the whole spring, coaches included, no one asked me how I felt,” Hurts continued. “No one asked me what was on my mind. No one asked me how I felt about the things that were going on. Nobody asked me what my future held.”
To say the least, it’s going to be a very interesting fall in Tuscaloosa.
