The Final Whistle: Why Hasn't Ty Simpson Won the Job? Where is Earl Little Jr? Alabama LB Battle!

The Final Whistle: Why Hasn't Ty Simpson Won the Job? Where is Earl Little Jr? Alabama LB Battle!

The quarterback battle at Alabama has been a tight one. Jalen Milroe seems to have taken the lead. Ty Simpson came to Tuscaloosa riding a huge wave of promise. Many thought that he would be the hands down choice for QB1. That isn't the case. Why is that? We look at what may be hindering Simpson from taking over.

One of the most improved positions for Nick Saban this off season has been the secondary. That group was a weakness the past few seasons. It doesn't appear so anymore. Kool-Aid McKinstry and Terrion Arnold are a few reasons why. After the A-Day, fans got a glimpse of just how good Earl Little Jr could be. He looked as though he would be the final installment of "no fly zone". However, during fall camp, he has gone silent. We aren't hearing much from him. So, what's going on?

There is an intense battle at linebacker going on between Trezmen Marshall and Jihaad Campbell. The both are making it hard for Nick Saban and Kevin Steele to make a decision. So, we will decide for them!

This week's winner of "Final Whistle Top Fan" is Jay "Luscion" Roepke. He will sit with us to ask question and give his analysis!

The Final Whistle is hosted by former Alabama players Matt Caddell & Chris James, Dan James, Justin Riley, Senordor "Coach Smook" Hines, and Ty Hayes.
