    So is this the first game he played in? Props to Saban for having the balls for putting him in. Wish we had a coach who would do that! Maybe Coach Dan will put Em roy in if needed!

    He’s played in multiple games throughout the year but obviously nothing like this. He mostly came in for mop up duty

    Kid is a cold blooded monster....

    To not only play like that but to get sacked then the next play in the national title game in OT. Next play not be fazed by the rush or the moment along with looking off a safety as a dang true freshmen

    Just unreal .... We have senior after senior that can’t do anything close to that

    If Alabama had started him they would've won the game by double digits.

    Bad news for everyone else. Kid is going to be a monster. Bama has lacked a QB with an NFL arm that can make all the throws. Now they have him. Gulp.

    I was just as impressed with the freshman running back Najee Harris, 22. He is a beast!

    Both teams displayed what Florida has been missing, and what the rest of the country needs to strive for. Mullen has his work cut out for him. Jesse Palmer even said in the air that the Gators are probably 3-4 years away from getting to this level.

    You should have stopped at "....has lacked a QB". Hurts stinks and cost them the game last year by sucking in the second half. With Tagovailoa and the other 5* on the roster, Bama will continue to own the SEC.

    UF will not be competitive with Bama (or UGA) until we can recruit at that level year in and year out at every position group. It remains to be seen if this current staff approaches that level.

    Tua's brother (taulia) should be joining him and Bama next year. He's a smaller version of tua but hes still good.

    The family moved from Hawaii to Alabama for tua.

    That kid just stole Jacob Copeland from UF. Bama now has a passing threat in their offense.

    I disagree. Jacob is a gator. I've posted several quotes on this board in which he talks about UF and their competitors. Of course, he could ultimately choose Bama but at this point I don't believe he will.

    We finish our wrs with Copeland and Watkins.

    One thing I know about last night... it is amazing how both Bama and UGA can put freshmen QB's on the field to perform at such a high level, and theyre not the only teams either.

    But UF could put QB after QB out there and it was the same poor result.

    That's called coaching right there folks...

    It's directly related to the garbage coaches we had. That won't happen under Mullen.

    Tua is a Gangster. Totally fearless. And he fits there OC perfectly!

    He will open things up for their RBs next year even more. The kid processes the game like a pro.
