    https://www.dawgnation.com/football/...a-football-fan

    If anything, I think he wanted his brother to be surrounded by a good QB... and Given his issue with Jalen Hurts... that may have played a role in this.

    Tua and his brother:
    Others have said that Tauila isn't going where. The family is serious about keeping the brothers together, and Tauila likes the idea of taking over the offense once his brother leaves for NFL. With the incoming QBs for next year in Tyson, Tauila and Mac Jones, the competition will be interesting.

    On Georgia:

    They literally have no shot at Tauila given It's close to signing day. Tauila is set to enroll in December and participating (practice only) with the team for playoff barring any last minute changes.

    What's interesting is that Georgia has 5 QBs on the roster with another QB coming in for next year: John Plumbee. That makes it 6. Only reason they would offer Tauila a scholarship is if Plumbee is looking elsewhere or Fromm is likely to transfer, but even then... Competition between Fields and Tauila doesn't make sense.

    In the end, Tauila most likely will stick with Alabama.
    It's funny................some of the corn dogs state they talked to him last night and he was impressed with the love that Ogre showed him.............they now give themselves a 35% chance of landing him

    My sentiments exactly..............they are grasping at straws, and not even considering the ones that Saban is taking out of LA

    Whatever effort they are expending to recruit a QB would be better spent elsewhere. They certainly need one in this class.

    I hope Taulia is secretly making them waste time recruiting him and causing them to miss out elsewhere.

    I just hope Taulia picks a place he can succeed in... These are kids, lets hope they choose wisely.

    He may be enamored with the attention -- what 17 year old would not? But, after the game result I think reality may have come to the fore...why go start in a chaotic situation like that? For the record, I cannot understand the infatuation with Emsminger...(sp) I've never seen his teams light up anything consistently...

    “Act like you’ve been there before.”

    i have no problem with Coach O taking a long shot here...that’s his job.
    i have no problem with the young man taking other visits, to reassure himself that Alabama is the right decision for him.
    However...he says he is “committed” to Bama. If he means what he says, then strutting around Tiger Stadium, all decked out in purple and gold, is just not a good look.
    Just my opinion.

    Re: The Coming of Taulia

    This is my take on this: The whole thing of Ed showing up at Tauila game probably ....ed off Saban not because of Tauila, but how he spoke with Tua on the sideline. Then you have that situation where Tauila walking with Ed on the field... out of 45 commits they had, Tauila was only one on the field with Ed. No doubt Ed was doing all he can to .... the coaches off and I think it was more of a Ego thing between the coaches. The thing is... Tauila knows he need to sit a year and get some experience and weight up and best place to do that is at Alabama. At LSU, QB situation is somewhat murky next year and I'm not sure He would do well at LSU... but then again who knows?

    In the end, I think he sticks with Alabama.

    I seriously don't think that part is an issue with Saban. Tua did the same thing... went on official visits. Notice how Tauila official visit lined up with Tua's game? Tennessee and LSU. I wouldn't be shocked to see Tauila taking official visit to Auburn game.

    Even if his parents like the LSU campus it is difficult to imagine a top QB going into that murky situation particularly with an offer in hand from Nick Saban. BTW already having a brother leading in the Heisman Trophy race at Alabama. Stranger things have happened but they don't always prove out to be the best decision.
