Anonymous coach on Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa: 'I think Tua needs to humble himself'
Preseason magazines are starting to come out, and that means we’ll be getting some scouting reports from anonymous coaches.
In Lindy’s Sports season preview magazine, there was a doozy of a comment made by an anonymous coach about Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa.
Per this coach, Tagovailoa put himself ahead of the team in the title game and he things the rising junior quarterback needs to humble himself (via 247Sports):
“I think Tua needs to humble himself,” the anonymous coach said. “I think he did some bad things in the bowl game that cost the team because he put himself ahead of the team. He needs to understand Alabama won national championships by playing great defense and special teams and not beating itself. In the national championship game, the quarterback play was atrocious, and some would say the play-calling, too.”
Tagovailoa nearly won the Heisman Trophy last season, if a late-season injury hadn’t hurt his effectiveness down the stretch.
However, his play in the title game did leave a lot to be desired, so we’ll see if he can turn things around when the 2019 season kicks off in August.
