It only took the second-half and overtime for Tua Tagovailoa to go from backup to Alabama legend. After an incredible 3 touchdown performance in relief of starter Jalen Hurts, including the game-winning, 41-yard TD walk-off TD strike to win the title, Colin is convinced Bama has a superstar in Tagovailoa, and a clear path to National Championships for the next several years.
Colin was so impressed with Tua’s combination of escapability and arm talent, today he called him a, “left handed Russell Wilson.” The similarities also extend to Tua’s personality and dedication to religion. It’s a lofty comparison for a true Freshman, but Colin saw enough last night to feel comfortable making it. Sometimes superstars are unmistakable and jump off the screen.
Watch Colin explain why he thinks Tua deserves the Russell Wilson comp:
