We understand the sentiment, but was it really necessary this late in the game? Tua Tagovailoa is going to win the Heisman Trophy. No one is doubting this, as ESPN's been hyping up the sophomore from Hawaii ever since he won the National Championship with one magical throw. Tua's stats back up the national consensus, and now there's a hype video to match.
It took a surprisingly long time for the Crimson Tide to make their support for Tua public. Better late than never, of course.
Tagovailoa has weapons galore and has barely been seen in a fourth quarter this season. Kyler Murray enthusiasts will point to the overall statistical advantage of the Oklahoma quarterback, but this is no contest.

We want to believe this'll be a two-horse race. I'm all for creating the drama. But similar to the College Football Playoff, let's not pretend Alabama shouldn't be favored to win this damn thing.
