Alabama's backup quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is adjusting to college football, but one Crimson Tide fan has an absurd concern about the freshman's ability to communicate with the rest of the offense.
The poster 'Chattown Tider' on Bama OnLine’s message board inquired about "the elephant in the room" which he said was a perceived language barrier for Tagovailoa. He cited the Hawaii natives "transition to the states" and that the signal caller did “point to receivers a couple of times."
Here's the full post in all its glory.
Tagovailoa was a 5-star recruit from Honolulu, Hawaii and has lived within the United States his entire life. While it may he difficult for the poster to comprehend, Hawaii has two official languages, and one of them is English.
At least Tua is having some fun with it too.
Last week against Fresno State, the true freshman saw the first snaps of his career and completed 6 of 9 passes for 64 yards and a TD. There certainly aren't any voids in communication between Tagovailoa and his receivers, especially after his Alabama debut.
In this ridiculous post, the only elephant in the room is Big Al.
