I am going to call him Jalen “The Terminator” Hurts

0055351-hyrv (1)“It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop... ever, until you are dead!”

So plays Alabama Quarterback, Jalen Hurts. He is a true freshman, but he plays like a machine sent from Skynet to destroy the opposition.

When he gets knocked down, he gets up, rejuvenates and does not quit. When he makes a mistake, he adapts, he innovates, he learns and then overcomes.  Such a quarterback has not ever been seen in these parts, and might not ever be seen again, unless Skynet really does send a Terminator back in time.

“He. Does. Not. Stop. Ever.”

Until you are beaten. Ole Miss Learned it. Texas A&M learned it. Arkansas learned it. Tennessee learned it. LSU learned it. Everybody has learned it, and everybody else has a good reason to be scared witless.

For Alabama fans, this is both a beautiful and scary thing. To have such a deadly talented, remorseless and relentless player at the most important position in the new SEC is a good thing. On the other hand, having that much power placed in the hands of a true freshman is scary.

Hurts is likely headed to New York in the next couple of years, and it’s just as likely that he’ll accept Alabama’s third Heisman Trophy. It is unlikely that he’ll stick around for the remaining three years of his eligibility.

Machines like Hurts are built to succeed, and there is no indication whatsoever that he won’t. And that’s going to come with the lure of millions and an early exit to the NFL, where he will almost certainly succeed.

”The Terminator's an infiltration unit: part man, part machine. Underneath, it's a hyperalloy combat chassis, microprocessor-controlled. Fully armored; very tough. But outside, it's living human tissue: flesh, skin, hair, blood...”

Mmm Hmmm. And it’s coming for you, College Football. It should be as much fun to watch as Terminator.

For that reason, I will heretofore refer to Jalen Hurts as The Terminator.
