Since he first became a college football legend in the national title game, one of the great challenges for sports broadcasters has been the pronunciation of former Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.

Everyone has screwed up the official naming at one point or another but NFL Insiders Adam Schefter and Field Yates were on the receiving end of one Crimson Tide fan’s letter explaining to the two of them how to correctly say the now Miami Dolphins quarterback’s name.

The fan went step by step for Schefter and Yates detailing how to say Tagovailoa.

The irony of the entire situation is that the writer of the letter isn’t even saying the south paw’s name correctly.

To clear up all any and all confusion, Tagovailoa told Alabama beat reporters how to correctly say his last name all the way back in 2018.
