Wasn't Saban just talking about things just like this after the spring game. I'll admit, last year every time Tua fell to the ground I held my breath. I also understand this is tackle football, things happen. This was a spring game....a spring game, with a vanilla offensive scheme. I hope we are not looking to much into this now. Tua also accurately threw the ball on many occasions as well. I'd like to think our defense had something to do also with Tua's "human" performance. That's actually a very good sign for the future.
Dudes definitely a troll. Unfortunately everybody that has the team logo by their name isn’t a fan. We get far to many non-fans and it makes us look bad.
Nick Saban open to adding a player this offseason to a position he defines as a ‘question mark’ on Alabama’s roster
Major must have got rocked pretty good to go into concussion protocol. Hopefully Cam progresses into a TE for us for the future.
I fully expect that secondary to be better this season. Definitely has the potential to be one of the better secondaries in the country.
Saban might have a found another gem. Heck, just put all 5 of em out there, spread em out and let Tua read and react.
I'm kinda thinking Will ran him outta town and he may have seen the writing on the wall, even though its early in the spring. He was serviceable at best but Sky was terrible last season. Will maybe pulling double duty if Sky doesn't improve.
Some inside notes had Taulia working at 3rd string. I wouldn't be surprised if he jumped Mac for backup. Mac is a good QB with good accuracy but if you get a QB who is equally accurate but a much better runner, Taulia might be the better fit. I worry about this position bc Tua was so banged up and it seemed as if he was more prone to re-injury every tackle. Taulia's disposition is much like his brothers and he's not easily rattled. I could see him going in for Tua in an away game and performing decent.
This is definitely his year. He can make a lot of money for him self this season. While the loaded backfield had a lot to do with his limited carries or PT, pass pro did as well. That's something I would like to see him improve on this season. Other than that, dude has it all. Athletic freak!
Maybe he has more experience with RPOs but everybody's running RPOs these days. I don't think this hurts Bama in that category that much.
Sark can coach offense. Falcons were top 5 last year in passing. I'm not worried at all, which I assume is why Saban welcomed him back. Offense will be once again booming this year. My concern is defense again, and not just the secondary. Mack should have stayed, he won't get drafted 1st round imo but I have no problem with him bettering life for him and his family. Last year there were just to many mental breakdowns not just the secondary but the LB position as well. Guys not passing off right, not playing with eye discipline, no gap integrity. The one bright spot was Q, who will be gone. I fully expect the defense to play better at all levels, or at least to the Bama standard.
I'm just happy for Trent man. Dude's been through a lot.
Team no red shirt. He will absolutely get burn this coming season. Love the confidence.
Father and son back again in T-Town! I'm liking the new hires so far.
Not bad of a hire. Falcons O-Line was pretty good a year ago. Top 5 in sacks allowed I believe. With the talent at Bama we'll be ok. Unlike other Bama fans I don't have a problem with the Sark hire.
I don’t think he was in any mock I saw. I’m sure he’ll get picked up or even drafted late but the kid really could have used another year.
It will be handled internally. He wasn’t driving he was just drunk or drinking in public which happens more times than we know. I’ll wait to past judgement further.
Mike Locksley explains why he continued recruiting for Alabama despite becoming Maryland’s new coach
You normally don't see that. Love Coach Locks and what he's done for us. Excellent hire for Maryland from a personality standpoint. The culture their seems bad and I hope he changes it.
Surtain definitely got pushed off on some of the bigger throws Murray made to Lamb but he has to adjust. If the refs allowed that I got to think they would allowed a lil hand fighting. He's just young but I feel he's going to be an outstanding DB by the time his college career is finished.
WATCH: QB prospect Taulia Tagovailoa discusses signing with Alabama, joining older brother in Tuscaloosa
Same disposition as Tua. Seems like a cool cat, laid back, not easily bothered. Will definitely need that coming here! Saying he has big shoes to fill is an understatement. Just hope he doesn’t get flustered by the chatter.
When Williams said "Kyler is short" I don't think he meant it to be a slight or diss to him. These articles are tough man.
As much as I love Saban, I just don't think it will work at the next level. He'll definitely get respected but there's to many personalities. You can't coach grown men the same way you do kids.....and I personally want him to stay at Bama until he's a 100 years old!!!
Most of the mocks I've seen had him at a 1st rounder. I have no problem with him staying and teaching the younger LB's but that year could in fact hinder him more than hurt him. He can always go back and get that degree, can't go back from a life altering injury.
AU has always recruited well. That isn't and has never been their issue.
Call me bias but I've said it for several years now. He's underrated and under paid. It's really not what he does on the field from a coaching standpoint either that makes him great. Any coach can call plays and yell at guys.
Would have been even more fun to get people to say his actual first name.
That’s what was first reported but I believe it’s a different procedure. Hopefully he’s good by game time.
Enos gave us fits when he was with Arkansas! I hope Saban promotes him. Love what Coach Locks has done for us. I wish him much success. He will need it.
I've seen him in some mocks as early as 2nd round. With the tough season he may slide but he's still draftable. Kid can play.
Oh I have no question the real Bama fans were behind him. I speaking to the fans who probably couldn't tell you the head coach at Bama before Nick Saban got there. These potentially last 2 games are gonna be special for us. I really hope we can get one for him as I don't expect him back next season.
They said 2 weeks but a high ankle can take 4-6 weeks. We may not see Tua for the playoffs. I have full confidence Jalen can win it all for us.
