The internet can be a funny place sometimes. It can also be a very dumb place. And on one Alabama message board, there was one post on Monday night that managed to combine both. And it related to Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.
Tagovailoa made his first appearance in Alabama uniform on Saturday against Fresno State. And one internet commentor or/troll seemed concerned about the “language barrier” Tagovailoa seemed to face in his first game. Tagovailoa is from Hawaii, not some place where English isn’t the primary language.

Disregarding these message board concerns, Tagovailoa played well in his debut. He completed 6 of his 9 pass attempts for 64 yards and a touchdown.
Tagovailoa and the Crimson Tide take on Colorado State this Saturday, with kickoff set for 7 p.m.
