Is James Franklin Sliding With Jalen Hurts?

James Franklin certainly has a weird affinity for the Twitter machine. But how else could he arrange an impromptu stadium White Out, plea for a record crowd, troll his players, put in his two cents on fall weddings, or call out drama-stirrers in front of a world-wide audience?

Over the weekend, our coach might’ve found a new use for the site.

After a brutal first half in the national championship game and riding the pine the rest of the way as his backup led the Crimson Tide to victory over Georgia, Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts might be looking for a new team if he can’t get his job back with the perennial powers.

Meanwhile, James Franklin has a wealth of options at the position, but once soon-to-be third-year starter Trace McSorley wraps up his eligibility next season, it’s anyone’s guess who will end up being the successor. Can’t hurt to add a national star to that mix.

It couldn’t be going down in the DMs, though. Right?

Same, Pat.
