Paul Finebaum Gets Brutally Honest About Alabama, Tua Tagovailoa
Paul Finebaum got brutally honest about Alabama and Tua Tagovailoa.
This past Saturday, Tagovailoa was injured in the first half of Alabama’s game versus Mississippi State.
Because the Crimson Tide held a massive lead going into halftime, some have suggested that head coach Nick Saban is partially to blame for what transpired.
According to these folks, he should have removed Tagovailoa from the game prior to the injury ever taking place
On Monday, Finebaum spoke out on the matter and essentially suggested that the Saban blame is misplaced.
“It is so easy to blame but in some ways it’s also reckless just to start blaming someone when these things,” he said.
“No one wanted any of this to happen,” he continued.
“No one expected this to happen. Unfortunately, it did happen.”
At the end of the day, football is a violent game. There was no more reason for Tagovailoa to be in the game at the end of the first half than there was for him to play versus a terrible program like Mississippi State to begin with.
What happened was an unfortunate incident – but nobody is to blame for it.
