It made me sick to see Bama win again. This isn’t some underdog story.

Neither do Bamers. Never change. Full of arrogance. What I can not wait to see, is what I saw in 3Q of that game. All the frowns/pouting.

At least we don't have catastrophe syndrome like LSU fans. You guys bitch and moan about literally everything. First thing yall need to do is quit thinking you're anywhere near the program Alabama is.

He was seriously done wrong. Shame on Saban. Hope recruits know what kind of person he is. Jalen is top class!

I disagree... the team comes first. If an OL was getting wrecked on every play would you replacement him if there was a better option? If that same replaced OL improved his skill and took back his spot isn't that better for the team? QB is the most seen position and I think people believe somehow the QB is the team, but there are 10 other players competing for their spots week after week, practice after practice. If coach becomes complacent and allows positions to become "safe" then no one grows and gets better. Jalen got better because he was replaced. His passing game got worse in year two and he relied to heavily on escaping and running. I've always thought we won in spite of Jalen in '16 and '17. Tua brought competition to the position and Jalen had to get better or be replaced. I think the way Saban speaks of Jalen that he genuinely loves this fella; it's not fake. But, Saban owes the team to put the best player in EVERY position. Les Miles should have learned this lesson several years ago when he kept playing (I think it was Jefferson) a QB who couldn't throw accurately. Players know this too and accept it. Play hard and be the best or get replaced. I certainly wish Jalen the best wherever he goes next year.

Say what ya want about Bama but he’s a good kid who stuck it out when there’s not many others who would in that situation. I was happy for him when he came in and won the game for them. If anyone deserved that he did.
