Did Tua Tagovailoa have his leg cut off? Bobby Carpenter and Finebaum are acting as if he had been injured like Eric LaGrand was...paralyzed. First of all, Bobby sounds like he’s been hitting the Winstraw HARDCORE! Just cycle off, guy. Secondly, he’s going to recover. This IS NOT Bo Jackson. The reason Bo’s injury became what it was was because it took over 3 months for them to discover the true injury, the lack of blood flow to his hip and joint. THAT’S what caused Bo to have to have his hip replaced. Tua is already ahead of Bo because of what everyone learned from this kind of separation with Bo Jackson. Finally, he’s going to have the absolute best therapy and recovery team at his disposal because of the need for quality QB play at the next level.
Fuck Paul Stinkbaum
"God always has a plan". Well Tua, if you're reading this, maybe that plan is for you to make a full recovery, and play your senior season at Bama. As it is, many teams will take a pass because they don't want to take the risk. Coming back and being successful in your senior year would put to rest all doubts. Yeah, you could get hurt again, it's SEC football after all. But about the only way to prove you've recovered is to PROVE you've recovered and you can only do that in real games. Just a thought. Think long term......the money is better and you can silence all the talking heads (aka "experts"). Either way, all the best and God's speed.
Tua has sat out more second halves than any other QB I’ve ever seen, and he was going to sit out the second half of this game. He looked fine and was performing well. It’s ridiculous to act like it was irresponsible of Saban to let him play the last drive of the first half before sitting the rest of the game.
Thats actually a hi-five emoji
Who the foook is Bobby Carpenter?
Stfu kaepernick go away
Man ... you do have a great face for radio. Passive-aggressive, smarmy little bald man.
Holly crapY'all going gay over TiaStop it!there are 1.000s of players and teams to talk about it.
#10 on Mississippi state jumped on him while he was down....why ain't he suspended
This situation will affect his NFL draft a bit. Good luck Tua, you will still be there.
Karma is a bitch!
I just now heard about Finebaum’s pet dog Darriell from Georgia posting pics and tweets showing Tua on the turf, and that he made extremely tacky, nasty, pointed remarks making fun of Tua and Alabama and Saban (he calls him “Satan” but darriell is owned by Satan, so . . . ). The Bama Nation detests all these types of low class acts but that’s what Finebaum people are attracted to - low class dirt. I’ve not seen any of these posts that darriell the ex marine (he’s an ex marine in my book of real Marines) put out because I don’t have twitter and those types accounts. But I’d like to hear from some who have seen and maybe saved the pictures and words. What a load of garbage! I wish I could get him stripped of his Marine Corps everything, because of all the respect I have - and love, for my family who served and died serving, some did, and this Georgia jerk has no place in our Corps. He has no honor. I have as much respect for him as I do for say, Paul Flumbum who has his own version of a Jerry Springer show for sports delinquents like Darriell, not- man, chump from Tuscaloosa, etc, etc.
Let's Make One thing for Sure, NOBODY IN ALABAMA NATION Likes Finebaum, He is a rate getter that has No ties to BAMA Nation, He only gets his money from discussing Bama, If We Bama Nation wasn't as Big as We are he couldn't get a job delivering Newspapers, Why this ignorant Dumb Ass gets paid for anything shows how ignorant his Fan Base is,
Man this is such a crappy thing to happen to ANY player. Big blow to the team and their fans. He is such a wonderful leader and person all around. We all need to pray for this young man. Prayers do work.
Tua, my prayers are with you..................
A buddy of mine is an Auburn fan and was brought to tears, I’m a gamecocks fan and I’m sickened by his injury. Tua, just know the whole SEC is behind you man ✊🏻
The people talking on this segment made some of the dumbest comments I’ve ever heard. Def love two guys with no medical experience giving medical advice lol
nobody wants kap!
Theres no "n" in tagovailoa. It's not Tungovailoa. You should lose your job at ESPN if you say his name and include a phantom n
@Lazy Leftist 👊 Lol im from hawaii, I see some nfl players with I believe polish/Czech or east europeans last names. I don't even start to try pronouncing. I feel u. God bless america!
@essafats 5 I can learn it, and i can also point out how it's inconsistent with the spelling. I can do both.
@Lazy Leftist so in other words its a mainland thing. Plz note we are a nation of immigrants with diff dialects, pronunciations, etc. Why can't we embrace it, learn, accept it & move on
@essafats 5 it's not about appeasing anybody. It's about making pronunciation consistent with spelling. Tagovailoa is not the only word that falls under this category
@Lazy Leftist learning lesson for all mainlanders, Tua younger brother coming up for alabama so the u.s.a. has nthr 3 yrs to get it. Besides why change a proud last name just to appease a few?
Sorry to hear Tua’s career is over. He was a really good quarterback.
Paul is absolutely right, Alabama keeps hearing all this crap that they aren't good enough to make the playoffs (and it's crap, they're plenty good enough until the iron bowl maybe) so Tua tried too hard when he didn't need too. I also kind of thought one of the tacklers sure drug him into ground awful hard considering he had just thrown the ball away. I get this is football and it's suppose to be physical, but it seemed a little overkill to me. After watching the hit I find doubt in coming away with a conclusion they were only trying to make a play on the QB.
Tua is Much Too Delicate for Football..He should play a Non Contact Sport like Bowling.
Yeah he should be like u a marathon couch potato keyboarder
Hope you get well better soon Tua!!!!
WOW! Sorry for Tua and Bama...and I'm an LSU fan. Both are good for College Football! Prayers for a speedy recovery!
Sounds like she's trying to down hurts. Get off the bandwagon blond bed wench
Should have never wronged Jalen hurts. Karma is a mother.
Fuck Nick Saban he doesn’t truly care about this kid he has three more highschool he’s prolly looking at to replace him already and he also prolly more sad he’s not making the CFP
the coach at Oklahoma did not play one of the top receivers in the country against Baylor.Lamb said he was ready to play.Saban is a selfish coach.
You are a moron
Finebaums such a damn bum.
first Tua is a warrior, second Paul Finebaum is a fool! You do not risk your number one QB to run up scores on sorry teams! Clemson always pulls Trevor at the half or after the beginning of the third quarter! Saban was trying to let Tua get more points for the hiesmen it was a calculated risk and it backfired now a great QB like Tua with suffer the consequence's, it is a shame!
It was still first half and Trevor stayed in against Weak Forest until late 3rd quarter. Go Tigers!It’s football. Everyone looking for someone to blame. It’s football.
Paul Finebaum is such a hypocrite and was a major factor in the beauty contest mentality in college football.
Tua needs to go pro or something before he gets killed. He may never recover or play in the NFL, looks like the Bo Jackson injury. Saban is not to blame but he did put the guy in there last week against LSU trying to get back to the playoffs so Saban can say this and that but a real coach would have sat him down until he was 100%. It's all about winning and legacy with Bama though so next player up!!
Everyone would have been screaming at the end if he would have kept him out and they lost “Why wasnt he playing Tua!?Why did he keep him out!?”
I understand Tua got the hip injury against Mississippi state but he should not have played against LSU. If Nick Saban really cared about Tua, He would have reminded Tua that he has a bright NFL future and that he needs to shut it down for the rest of the season. Nick Saban is a selfish bastard.
It's interesting to me that nobody is placing the blame on Nick Saban. Tua is one of the most decorated players in college football history. He was almost a lock to be taken #1 in the NFL draft. He should not have been playing against LSU. He's sacrificed being 1st round pick to for nick saban to beat LSU. Nick Saban is still getting his millions. Saban is an arrogant asshole.
Everyone has been blaming (wrongly) Saban. Where have you been?
Paul : when will some focos be on the in experience of ohio st Q B AND HOW HE NEVER PLAYED IN A BIG GAME .I SAY PENN ST TAKES THE MDOWN.
Saban and Alabama arent that good. Heres their secret formula: play 3 cupcake teams all at home(bama refuses to travel), play weak teams from the sec along with a game or 2 against some thought teams like LSU or auburn.... go to the sec title game against some weak team from the other division.... go to the playoffs or bcs title game over the years and pull off a win. They are a well rested team because of who they play. It's not rocket science.
Wait wait wait....that doesn’t fit the Narrative when Clemson beats down Bama because the excuse always is “well Clemson doesn’t have to play the long concrete breaking jackhammering bone crunching steel melting secsecsec schedule that Bama does so they are well rested”... how does that work?
LSU fan here .. start with Finebaum is a Saban honk . But , if Tua falls in the draft , could be the best thing for him . He is injury prone and if you send him to Cincinnati or Miami, he will get crushed . He has been spoiled with 5 star linemen , throwing to a track team .
I can't believe some of the hate of some of the people here. No one whould want this to happen to any one if this was there team.prayers are with you TuA get better
This exactly why college athletes should get paid. Boys pro football future is really not looking good. Anyone’s hip would have popped out with them 2 big ass guys on their back. He didn’t cost him self millions of dollars! His coach cost him millions of dollars!
I'm not gonna play the blame game, but Tua should have been sat, co mpletely , for no less tha4 to 5 weeks, no playing whatsoever. I predicted this would happen. People say this injury has nothing to do with ankle, i dont believe that. I hope coaches learn, when a player has a high ankle sprain, sit them for 5 weeks, end of story.
DAMN TUA HOLD YA HEAD UP GATOR NATION!!!
There is no blame and stop talking about the score being a reason. No college QB comes out of the game because it's turned into a route. What like 6(?) of there games this year have been blow outs and Tua did not come out of a single one. They felt he was healthy enough to play, and clearly he was, FFS he threw for 250+ yards and 2 tds, he got injured on a normal football play. It happens. Get over it and stop trying to blame the coach, or player etc. to the next point, "why am i going to go out there and sacrifice my body and my future for one or 2 more games against nobody tech" How bout because if you are at that level and you are likely to go to the next level that YOU ARE MOST LIKELY ON A SCHOLARSHIP and that's the only reason you are there to begin with?
Players are getting smarter
Tua's not on that short list.
In the 80 s i had a deep thigh bruise on my left leg. I continued to play. Dr. Told me that because of over compensation i could suffer another injury. A week later i blew my left knee out.
@Randy Weaver I get what you're going for, but welcome to how the world works. Tua is the bigger name so his injury actually gets covered. Same thing happens every day. Why is it national news when a famous person dies, but when some random person dies it doesn't matter. Just how the world works.
D. Chiekezie my point is an ol miss player got put out for the season in this same game....no one even knows his name...why?
My point is that if trainers knew that back in the 80s why didnt BAMA medical staff consider some basic rules of injuries.
Not surprised by that. I am sorry that happened to you, but it's just how the body works. Even though it is able to overcompensate for the injury, it cannot do it for long or even difficult activities. Tua may be the same case, but this is roughly the same injury Bo Jackson has (a lot better chances Tua comes back from it because he had surgery instantly, where Bo had it roughly a month after the hit. The time table is huge for that exact injury). I think it was more of just the way he landed rather than his previous injuries leading to this one. Hope he recovers though.
I hope the poor guy has a career still.
MISS ST PLAYERS CAUSING INJURY RAN RIGHT BY BAMA RIGHT GUARD AND TACKLE !!!
WHEN WILL THE BAMA O LINE LEARN TO BLOCK !!!
Patriots will draft Tua late in the 1st🤔
Tua getting injured on purpose, he is going to be a bionic man for the draft... worked for Brees.
Imagine if two NFL players did that to Tua?
Tua is Mr. GlassHe’s done ✅ He was a solid QB but losing 15-20% will make you a non NFL QBToo bad for a good guy but hopefully he was insured
LSU wont score over 20 against UGA
And Clemson is going to hammer LSU.
Same injury that ended Bo Jackson career...
Marketing Heavy Duty Tow Companies “similar” is not the same as “same.” Come armed with a dictionary next time dick head.
Absolutely not the same injury that ended Bo Jacksons career. Come armed with facts next time.
Frater Sol the injuries are similar. However, it’s the immediate treatment where the prognosis differs. Bo’s injury was not treated for weeks. That’s why it ended his career. Tua’s femur was relocated in the hip joint immediately after the dislocation, improving the odds of not developing vascular necrosis. Vascular necrosis is what ended Bo’s career.
Don't care about a 2 year retired backup
NFL is like, who's next!!!
How the hell is Paul gonna blame the medical staff? Was their crystal ball malfunctioning when they were not able to predict that he would destroy his hip? They cleared him because he ankle was healthy enough to play, and it was. Were they supposed to test Tua's posterior wall in his pelvis to make sure it could withstand his femur getting rammed into it?
It's a stand alone injury. Had nothing whatsoever to do with an existing injury.
I don't buy that. If he is 100% he would have been able to avoid being tackled like that.
3:38 jumps to Twitter video of Tua dancing and singing in his hospital bed. :)
God bless you tua!
