Former LSU Quarterback Under Nick Saban Weighs In on Alabama QB Competition
The number one topic in college football this off season has been how will Nick Saban handle Alabama's quarterback competition between Jalen Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa. But it's not like Saban hasn't been in this similar situation before.
During his tenure at LSU, Saban had a quarterback named Josh Booty, who was the starter of the team and went 6-3 during his time as a starter throwing over 2,000 yards, 17 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.
Booty suffered a rib injury during a loss to the UAB Blazers and quarterback Rohan Davey stepped in and defeated the No.11 Tennessee Volunteers the following week 38-31 in overtime, but Davey was pulled during the second half in the following game to the Florida Gators.
Booty would remain the starter until the Sugar Bowl against Georgia Tech, but Saban pulled him at halftime trailing 14-3 and Davey would outscore the Yellow Jackets 25-0 for the victory, sounds familiar.
To further elaborate on the LSU quarterback competition and compare it to what Saban is handling now at Alabama, Booty joined The Game with Ryan Fowler to discuss playing under Saban and breaks down how he believes he'll manage the competition here in Tuscaloosa
