Few people accuse Skip Bayless of having much sense, but it seems that he is trying to outdo himself comparing Jalen Hurts to Tua Tagovailoa. Check out this gem:
I gotta believe somewhere in the back of his mind Nick Saban is second-guessing going with Tua over Jalen. But he'd obviously never admit that publicly.— Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless) September 2, 2019
Oh, Skip. I really hope that it’s all an act.
In any case, “Undisputed” co-host Shannon Sharpe didn’t hold back with his response comparing passing ability, and he’s spot on.
"It's still Tua's Heisman to lose. Why is Jalen Hurts at Oklahoma to begin with? The guy that's at Alabama right now beat him out for the job. ... The better of the 2 QBs is Tua. If Hurts was better than Tua, he'd still be the starting QB [at Alabama]." — @ShannonSharpe pic.twitter.com/2tdpztw7VS— FOX Sports (@FOXSports) September 2, 2019
Most Alabama fans probably have no interest in engaging in a comparison between the two young quarterbacks, but we may as well get used to it. If both guys continue to play well and keep their teams undefeated, they will become the primary national storyline for the talking heads.
