Nick Saban will play QB Tua Tagovailoa this week: Wise move or not?

He knows what the opposition is trying to do, but Alabama football head coach Nick Saban is not resting sophomore quarterback Tua Tagovailoa this week. 

During his presser on Monday, he firmly stands on the signal-caller being “okay” and said he will practice on Tuesday.

While he’s setting records and has revolutionized the Crimson Tide’s offense, Tagovailoa has taken a ton of hits to his knee in the last few weeks.

Alabama fans are constantly having mini heart attacks each time the native Hawaiian is slow to get up, as they know he is a vital part of this program’s chances to capture its second straight national title. 

Even with a capable guy in Mac Jones, who needs more reps to get comfortable, and an experienced backup in Jalen Hurts, Saban continues to remind local media that the Citadel is a competitive challenge and he will not limit Tagovailoa’s reps in the matchup. 

In this edition of In My Own Words, yours truly of Touchdown Alabama Magazine dives into the situation on Tagovailoa’s knee and bring intriguing scenarios as to why Saban’s should consider resting him until the Southeastern Conference title matchup against Georgia. 

Tide fans, should Tagovailoa play or not?
