I think it’s funny how everyone just writes off Paul Tyson. To me when Taulia and he were in high school.. I thought Paul was the better of the two players. He is not your typical walk on QB. Now Bryce has more talent than all of them but he has a lot of learning to do
Tyson is not a walkon. He also was clearly behind Taulia this year, is miles behind Mac, and will be miles behind Bryce Young. It's no offense to the young man as he has talent, but he has no chance of playing unless multiple players get hurt or transfer.
A lot of preseason ranking is based on where a team finishes. The early rankings mean nothing and only help to hype game broadcasts and media. If it were me, I'd wait until October to have the first rankings. Of course, the media would then just continue the rankings and call them "unofficial."
Tyson is a walk on as he did not get a athletic scholarship.. Bear Bryants Grandson did not need one. He was recruited and offered but I believe he is on the Bryant scholarship or on self pay.
I don't think he's on the Bryant Scholarship. The Bryant Scholarship was established by Coach Bryant to pay some of, not all, the tuition and board expenses of the children of his players and coaches. It's not a complete ride.
Of course they are and the reasoning is understandable: teams do get a 'boost' from how they close out a season and their approach going into the next (especially when they have a significant number of returning players.)
