Alabama was shut out by the Georgia defense in the first half, as the Crimson Tide could only muster 94 total yards of offense.
A part of the problem was the performance by quarterback Jalen Hurts, who struggled to a 3-for-8 passing performance for only 21 yards.
This got the Crimson Tide fans wanting some “Tua Time” in the second half, calling for freshman Tua Tagovailoa to be inserted into the game. The fans are getting what they want as Tagovailoa came out as the quarterback in the second half.

Even though I like Jalen, I have a feeling if we don’t win tonight Tua Tagovailoa gets a fair chance this off season at the starting bid

Alabama needs to put Tua Tagovailoa in or they won’t win this game
