    The Quarterback Making Alabama Scarier Than Ever-WSJ

    The Crimson Tide have won five of the last nine national championships, but they have never had a passer like Tua Tagovailoa


    "................................ According to the schoolís record books dating back to the programís first game in 1892, an Alabama quarterback has thrown for four or more touchdowns in a game only 16 times. Tagovailoa owns three of those occasions. He has only started six games."

    Until Tua came along.
    Joe Namath was probably our best QB.
    AJ was a close second.

    NOW THERE IS NO CONTEST.

    Games we scored 50-60 points could have been 70-75 points if Tua had been turned lose and allowed to play hard for 4 quarters.

    There's no doubt. It's early with our toughest games yet to come but this could easily go down as the greatest Alabama team ever.

    I don't get anything but a viglink.com.


    It worked in my Puffin browser. Not Safari though.

    I was able to read it on my iphone.

    The comment section was especially rich. Plenty of barners, of course.

    One guy was arguing the Saban won because he was at Bama, and he wouldn't do as well at a mid tier school. Well, duh. We used to say even a DuBose or Shula could coach up a ten win season at Bama.
    Teaming Bama up with Saban was like using rocket fuel in a Lamborghini. ( A winning pair, said the Bear. Kind of like Coco-cola and Golden Flake chips, but so much better.)

    I'm seeing the same thing as you. Usually it happens when you have seen a couple or three articles from the site within the the past month. I get the same thing from the Times and Washington Post.

    "A long way," he said after being asked how far the Crimson Tide had come since Coach Nick Saban arrived three years ago. "I guess you could say it's the distance from Shreveport to Pasadena."

    He's a heck of a player, and as some are noting that Saban and Bama are a great mix that make each other better, the same can be said about Tua's talent mixing with the other guys on the offensive side of the ball. It must be like driving a Ferrari right now.

    Tua is the best I've seen in my 50+ years of following Bama football.
