What the heck does Alabama need with Hatcher? He'll sit on their bench for a couple of years then transfer. I am sick nto death of Alabama and Nick Saban. They are bad for cllege football.

How do you go from a walk on at Arkansas State to a scholarship at Alabama?, sounds a little fishy to me.

Another traitor to the state of Arkansas. Our boys (and girls) need to stay home to play ball!

Wise to jump on the scholarship offer at Alabama!
( and I'm a Red Wolf fan )

Give it your best, learn a lot from the best , and if the " hand writing on the wall" is not favorable after 2 years, you have the option to stay or to transfer.

Choice........U of Alabama

One of the top teams in the nation year in and year out
SEC
Stadium seats around 100,000

Arkansas State..........
Sunbelt
Stadium seats about 30,000 ( rarely close to a sellout )

It would be a tough choice between a scholarship offer at ASU vs walk on at Alabama.
A scholarship at Alabama ?
Jump at it !

I respect the young man's decision, it's his life, so labeling him as a traitor is childish. However, I am pretty sure that he will never play QB at Alabama and he may never actually see any playing time due to the talent there.
