    When was the moment you realized that Tua was something special?

    I remember it vividly. It was this pass against UT last season:

    I will go with the Vandy game when he did the spin move and threw the ball on the money for a TD.

    When, in the NCG, after throwing the INT, he's on the sideline walking with his arm around Coach's shoulder and telling him it's going to be okay. No one does that, unless you have that special something.
    Watch your thoughts; they become words.
    Watch your words; they become actions.
    Watch your actions; they become habits.
    Watch your habits; they become character.
    Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

    Vandy game last year.

    This. His first throw of that spring game had everyone gasping. Just an electrifying player.

    Agree -- Vandy game, but even before that particular TD.

    All of those are great moments, but I think the NCG was his defining moment..................to come in down that many points and calmly lead the team to victory, and not look flustered at 2nd and 26, then throw the strike.............

    I knew that he was better than Jalen early on, but I really didn't have an appreciation for just how special he might be until the CFPNCG.

    First practice video I saw of him and he never missed hitting the receivers in the hands. Thought he was really good then but then the Vandy game and the whirly move straight into throwing a perfect strike and I was SOLD!
