…well, minus the finger pointing about favoritism part.
So Jimmy Barnes is leaving Alabama, seeking a transfer to a lower division school. This really isn’t that surprising when you consider that he is basically a sideline lifer at UA (He got plenty of free ball caps I assume. Pretty sweet deal if you ask me). I remember all the built up hype following this kid as he came out of California. Sometimes the star ratings don’t lie folks.
With Greg McElroy taking the 2nd string spot, and Nick Fanuzzi coming in to challenge for the 3rd string spot, it only makes sense for Jimmy to seek playing time else where. After seeing the guy play, I came to the conclusion that we would’ve REALLY been sunk had John Parker Wilson got injured…. even though 6-7 ain’t exactly living the high life.
Good luck with your future playing career Jimmy. I will be cheering for you where ever you land. I just pray that you’re the last over-hyped QB that decides to leave.
