No telling what can happen in that medical tent if you need help controlling your emotions.
All the Tua family has to do is sell their house in Ewa Beach, Oahu, and then they can live like kings in Tuscaloosa
I think Lane posted something about this but one of Saban’s mantras is emotions going up lead to decisions going down. This is probably emphasized most with the biggest decision makers, QBs.
They also probably look for composure under duress as one of the key indicators of a QB that will work for them on the recruiting trail. I’m sure they scrutinize close games and losses in high school to see the disposition of those guys before they recruit. They’re not looking for cheerleaders that lead by emotional intensity like Tebow.
"Even Jesse said"?? Pfft
If they own it. When I was in Hawaii on of the natives said very few can afford to own homes because of the astronomical cost of real estate there.
He said generations of families live under one roof, all with multiple jobs just to make ends meet.
If his family is wealthy enough to have owned a home there they will have plenty of cash to reinvest in AL.
I've been saying this kid should be playing all year. Took a genious move by saban at the half to keep up with this rocket scientist. Hurts isn't a qb
They could even live off of renting it out while they're gone.
I'm sure they're living pretty high on the horse as it is with the star QB, son winning his first of 3 rings and a younger son that could quite possibly attend Bama too in another year if he continues to improve. They probably have 4 brand new dodges in the driveway and the rent is taken care of. It's not Oahu but it's their little slice of hillbilly heaven.
Oh, I don't know. Shane Matthews, Danny Wuerfel and Tim Tebow come to mind.
Not to mention Tom Brady.
It wasn't just the record. Name one QB in the nation that performed better and had only 2 turnovers? I'll answer, none. He's all by himself. 2 turnovers all season. Nearly 3,000 yards of offense. One game doesn't indicate nothing. Frost showed why I am so glad we didn't hire this low IQ fake QB of a coach. Tua did well because Kirby didn't game plan for him. Kirby game planned for Hurts. So Tua who is a good QB was able to catch Georgia and Kirby couldn't adjust enough. Their defense did well enough after Tua's initial 5 for 6 on his 1st drive by holding him to 50% passing, but he made too many plays. But understand, sitting Hurts will cost Bama a game next year. Tua will turn the ball over and it will cost them a game. When he runs, he holds the football like a baseball. 7 or 8 times in the title game I saw where he reached one-handed for extra yardage. He also allows himself to get hit hard too many times when Hurts is nearly unhittable. Hurts reminds me of Emmitt how he somehow avoids that big hit. Tua's a fine QB but you don't sit a QB who hasn't deserved it.
probably better than their FG kicker
I forget at what point in the game that Hurts got his bell rung. That may have been a big factor in the decision to pull him at halftime (plus the fact that Bama had zero points). But if Hurts got "hurt" early, it may explain part of his ineffectiveness.
There was chatter around the UCLA program that Tua was going to end up there and play for Chip. They were bummed when he was put in the game.
For god sake how could two people disagree with this? Maybe they don’t like hearing the truth?
First day on this board? I would have sworn I've seen you around before.....
Tua Tagovailoa will long be remembered for coming into the second half of the National Championship Game and leading the Alabama Crimson Tide to a comeback victory over Georgia. The move to replace Jalen Hurts at quarterback may have been one of coach Nick Saban’s best, if not risky, moves in his career. For one former SEC coach, the move to Tagovailoa came a bit later than if he were still the coach. “I probably would have done it in the second quarter,” Steve Spurrier said on The Paul Finebaum Show. “I probably wouldn’t have waited all the way to halftime.”
Tua and Fromm just put our QB situation AT (After Tim) in stark depressing hues. I know we had shite coaching, but doesn't talent evaluation play into it as well? Those guys (and Eason and Bentley) were FR and they mostly lit it up, certainly better than FF. Trask? Allen? C'mon CDM, we turn our lonely eyes towards you.
Tua was sick. The guy plays like a pro! It's funny that Spurrier said he'd a thrown him in earlier. No kidding. He'd yank someone in a second and always did.
