Any controversy on the allegiance that Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts might have on which of the two colleges he he attended, Alabama or Oklahoma, is a non-starter.  As of a very informative newspaper article by Chase Goodbread, The Tuscaloosa News, the possible 2023 NFL MVP loves both places of higher learning, and works at making sure that the world knows it.  The fact that Goodbread makes in his writing is that the only thing that matters is what Hurts thinks, and that fans of both schools feelings and opinions are just banter.

As of Goodbread:   He once told The Dan Patrick Show that if faced with choosing between watching Alabama or Oklahoma if both were playing a crucial game in the same time slot, he’d have to flip the channel back and forth. Then, of course, there’s the ultimate test: Sunday and Monday Night Football introductions, when the starting lineups let you know where they went to college. “Jalen Hurts, Channelview High School,” he says, stiff-arming the college choice with a hat tip to the school, which lies on the outskirts of Houston, that sent him to college in the first place……

Hurts, as noted by Goodbread, will give his high school in the presentation of players and where they played on the broadcast this weekend, as he has done in the past.  Both schools have every right to claim Hurts as a significant player in the football history of each school and both should be totally elated that Hurts made his mark in both Norman and Tuscaloosa.  Hurts is a loved man in both places, and also in his new home in Eastern Pennsylvania. 

Boomer, Roll, and go Eagles…….
