Quarterback position at MSU, Alabama will be worth watching — Smith on Sports

With an instant impact Tua Tagovailoa becomes an instant legend for Alabama

Well Alabama's Minkah Fitzpatrick really had to go during Monday's national championship so he went to the bathroom at what was the worst possible time - he missed the game's ending play that won the game for the Crimson Tide.

When Tua signed to play in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, last year, his family moved with him from Hawaii.

If you stayed up late to see Alabama win 26-23 in overtime, bully (or "Dilly dilly!") for you.

"It was nerve-wracking", Ingram said with a grin. The Tigers scored on four straight drives, including the field goal in the first half, to control the game and hand the Crimson Tide its first loss of the season.

Alabama head coach Nick Saban, left, speaks next to quarterback Tua Tagovailoa during a press conference in Atlanta, Tuesday, Jan. 9, 2018. On a night when Damien Harris and Bo Scarbrough were bottled up by the Georgia defense for a combined 40 yards on 10 carries, Alabama had to turn to another freshman to inject some life into the stagnant offense.

"He's the man", Ingram said. I don't know what it would be like to not be a part of a team. "He did his thing".

Tagovailoa started the second half after Nick Saban rolled the dice with starting quarterback Jalen Hurts struggling. There also will be a quarterback competition come spring practice, but that's for discussion at a later date.

Patriots Injury Report: Who's in, who's out against Titans?
While the regular season may have been disappointing, Orapko got 1.5 sacks in the first game of the postseason versus the Chiefs . He did so to the 49ers, keeping Brady as the starting quarterback in New England , but this has reportedly upset the head coach.

Tagovailoa finished the game completing 14 of 24 passes for 166 yards and three touchdowns with an interception, adding 27 yards rushing on 12 attempts.

With Alabama scoreless against the Georgia Bulldogs at the half in the national college-football championship on the night of January 8, 2018, the Crimson Tide's Catholic coach Nick Saban made a decision to throw a Hail Mary of his own. Tagovailoa is a true freshman. During the 2011 season, the Crimson Tide stifled LSU 21-0 with one of the great defensive performances in college football history.

The Wilks interview satisfied the NFL's Rooney Rule, which requires teams to interview minority candidates for head coaching jobs.

If you didn't watch the game, or fell asleep before the second half, I'll give a brief recap.

Tua Tagovailoa - the hero of Monday night's overtime win over Georgia - had grown frustrated by being stuck behind Jalen Hurts, according to Florida Atlantic coach Lane Kiffin. "I don't think any of our players would be satisfied backing into (the national title) with a PAT", Osborne told reporters.

The downside: Going to the Giants would mean that Saban would have to actually, you know, work for someone.

It wasn't until approximately 18 months later - after OR secured and then lost the commitment of four-star quarterback Ryan Kelley and Tagovailoa committed to Alabama - that Frost and OR coach Mark Helfrich deemed Tagovailoa worthy of a scholarship.
