It turns out the starting quarterback job is not the only thing Alabama’s Jalen Hurts lost as a result of the Crimson Tide’s national championship victory over Georgia.
You see, Hurts recently shaved off his signature dreadlocks, and he took to Twitter on Sunday to tell the world that it was a direct result of Alabama’s win in the title game:

Though Hurts is inarguably the most visible player on Alabama’s roster, it would likely be an upset if he were the Crimson Tide’s starting quarterback in 2018. That honor, of course, is likely to go to National Championship Game hero Tua Tagovailoa.
However, there’s no doubt that Hurts — the ultimate team player — will continue to provide a huge benefit to his team, both in his play should he be called upon, and in support of his teammates, mostly notably Tagovailoa.
