Kirk Herbstreit makes prediction for starting Alabama quarterback


The Alabama quarterback problem has been put on the backburner by some analysts and college football experts because the Crimson Tide has done well each year it's had a new starter at the position. Bama won a national title last year with a first time starter and hasn't really lost a beat in seasons with back-to-back first timers at QB.

With the season getting closer to starting, ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit took to Twitter to answer some questions. Someone was thoughtful enough to ask about Alabama's QB situation and of course he had an answer.

But which two might get in the rotation? Herbstreit has an answer for that too:


That's Blake Barnett, Jalen Hurts and Cooper Bateman he is referring to in the tweet. Bateman is actually the only one with any experience in a college game and most of the players have tabbed him as the front-runner in the competition. We probably won't find out who is the starter until a few days before the game so let the speculation begin!
