In the business world, managers often use a method of evaluation called the SWOT analysis to measure their company’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats.

With National Signing Day a week away, college football coaches similarly can use a form of the SWOT analysis to evaluate their teams and see how they can better position their programs heading into the future.

As Jalen Hurts notched his first season as Alabama’s starting quarterback under his belt, former Alabama fullback Martin Houston provided his SWOT analysis of the true freshman signal caller during Tuesday’s edition of The Blitz.

Houston began his monologue by mentioning some of the SWOT analyses provided by the listening audience.

After acknowledging the audience suggestions, Houston outlined his analysis of Hurts’ strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats.

Since the national championship game loss to Clemson, an increasing amount of chatter has centered on Hawaii native Tua Tagovailoa’s ability as quarterback.

While comparing Tagovailoa’s strengths to Hurts’ strengths, the former Alabama fullback touched on an advantage favoring Hurts that Tagovailoa does not have.

“The strength that no matter how much or how good Tua is or T-squared is, he doesn’t have 15 games of experience. You can’t manufacture that.” Houston mentioned.

The Blitz kicks off 12 hours of live and local coverage of Alabama sports each weekday from 6-7 AM on Tide 102.9/100.9 and the radioPup app.
