    Not much to see here, but it's better than not seeing anything

    I wouldnít rule out Paul Tyson beating him out. From watching them up close last year I would think Tyson is a lot more further on than Taulia. Just imo

    If you stood them next to each other and took their numbers off the jersey, you almost couldn't tell them a part. You can tell they are brothers. Built a lot alike.

    Agreed. I thought Lia was a little shorter but they look virtually the same height in that video.

    Exactly the opposite of what I've heard said about them. Since Tyson played the a Gus protege my understanding is he is not as develped as a downfield passer as Lia.

    Thatís a lot because Lia is hyped up because of his High school coach and his brother. He is good but how good remains the question
    Hearing and seeing are two different things. Iíve seen Lia about 3 more times than Iíve seen Tyson (7-4) and Iíve never been wowed by Lia to the level that many Alabama fans have been. He is good but not the second coming of Tua. Iíve came away more impressed with Tyson than Lia. IMO .

    FWIW i donít care who wins that future battle. Iím just saying itís not a forgone conclusion like I hear many say.

    I don't think it's a foregone conclusion either. Tyson has TONS of upside.

    Didnít mean to knock our little legacy at QB. Heard Paul Tyson is good, but Iíve been hearing Taulia is better than his big brother for a while now..

    I don't think either are anything at this point. The question is which of them or if either of them is capable of getting better. Tua didn't have the hype in high school that some others had but in the camp circuit he got better and better and he grew quite a bit his freshman season.

    Better than Tua? I haven't heard that and, frankly, based on what I saw in the HS game I watched of his last fall I don't buy it. Not as accurate as Tua, IIRC, and forced a few throws as well. I have no doubt Tua will help him and he'll improve.

    Also Remember that Tyson got to practice during the bowl season and Lia was still rehabing his shoulder.

    Re: Tua and Taulia Tagavaiola - First Practice together

    Since Tyson has been brought into the conversation I see a situation in the future similar to what went on with Tua and Jalen where if both Taulia and Tyson turn out to be good the loser of that QB competition may look elsewhere to finish their college career. I'm excited to have them both for now but just looking realistically at the way college football is these days. The dangers of recruiting two good ones in the same class.

    I asked someone close to Tua at a game the same question he said ďwho ever has been saying Lia is better than or equal to Tua is either blind or doesnít know what they are talking about. Lia is good maybe great but Tua is a generational talentĒ his words not mine.
