Saban happy with Hurts' work players 'need to play better around him'

When speaking about his offense Thursday Nick Saban made one thing clear, they have to play better. Things are only going to get tougher for Alabama as the season continues and Alabama is going to need its talented young players to step up and take over. Saban told the press that he is happy with the development that he has seen from his true freshman quarterback, Jalen Hurts, but that he is going to need some help.

About that help piece....

Saban speaking on that help Hurts needs,

From SEC Country:

We pumped crowd noise into practice to simulate the atmosphere for Jalen Hurts and the team. I challenged the offensive players to "play better around him." I was very disappointed in how the players around him played last week. We don't want all the pressure to be on the quarterback. We are confident in what Jalen can do. We're going to manage what we ask him to do, and not ask him We can help him along the way, but a lot of the things he's going to have to learn by playing.


Bama fans should know if Hurts and this team can be as special as they hope if the losing streak is snapped against Ole Miss Saturday.
