New Hurricanes OC Dan Enos says Miami, Manny Diaz are 'on the cusp of doing some great things'

In his one season as Alabama’s quarterbacks coach, Dan Enos helped groom Tua Tagovailoa into a Heisman Trophy finalist. His other high-profile protege — Jalen Hurts — improved his game dramaticall and came off the bench in the SEC Championship Game to lead the Crimson Tide not only to a come-from-behind...

Report: TCU pursuing Jalen Hurts after Alabama QB enters transfer portal; what are the odds of SMU landing Texas QB Shane Buechele?

TCU football has reached out to Jalen Hurts after the Alabama quarterback entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal on Wednesday, per Jeremy Clark of 247Sports.com. Hurts has not officially announced a decision to transfer, but he is expected to take his talents elsewhere as a graduate transfer following the emergence of quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, who took over the starting role for the Crimson Tide this past season en route to being named a Heisman Trophy finalist.TCU has been in the market for a graduate transfer since quarterback after Shawn Robinson -- the Horned Frogs' starter at...

Report: Alabama’s Jalen Hurts enters transfer database

Report: Alabama’s Jalen Hurts enters transfer database

Expected news is expected. In news that quite frankly should surprise nobody, Jalen Hurts may be on the move. The Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback has reportedly entered himself into the NCAA’s transfer database. Barton Simmons of CBS Sports reported the news on Wednesday afternoon, and it was later corroborated by Alex Scarborough of ESPN and The Athletic’s Cecil Hurt. This shouldn’t be too surprising news, as we said. Hurts was long considered a transfer candidate, starting right after Tua Tagovailoa replaced him in the second half of last year’s College Football Playoff...

How Alabama's offense might look at Maryland under Michael Locksley

In the lead-up to Alabama’s matchup against Notre Dame in College Football Playoff semifinals, Crimson Tide quarterback Tua Tagovailoa said he expected his offensive coordinator (and new Maryland coach) Michael Locksley to bring the team’s high-scoring offense with him to College Park. If that’s...

Initial Impressions from the CFP Championship game

Initial Impressions from the CFP Championship game

Turnovers, mental mistakes and poor red zone efficiency doomed the Tide in a 28 point defeat. Well, that was.... something. Alabama came roaring out of the gate looking like the superior football team by a fair margin. The defense forced a quick three-and-out and, after a head-scratching pick-six by Tua Tagovailoa that would serve as an omen, the offense marched right down the field to tie the score. Immediately, the defense had Trevor Lawrence and company in 3rd-and-14 on the ensuing possession. The freshman was looking a little shaky at that point, and frankly wasn’t great under...

College Football National Championship: 2nd Half Open Thread

College Football National Championship: 2nd Half Open Thread

This is bad Score at the half is 31-14, Clemson. I don't have anything positive to say. The Tide rushing game is dominating, but the Clemson secondary picked off a couple of really dumb throws from Tua Tagovailoa. Meanwhile, the defense hasn't been able to stop a nosebleed as Trevor Lawrence has had about a million seconds to throw every play. At the same time, a slew of untimely penalties have stalled Tide drives or extended those of Clemson. Throw in a missed extra point and a kickoff out of bounds, and it's really been a trifecta of mistakes. Like the Ole Miss loss of 2015. It's really...

Your latest Crimson Tide news and notes. Happy Monday, everyone. The final game day of the 2018-19 season is upon us, and we are mere hours from knowing which of the two finalists will become the first 15-0 champion in modern history.

I think Alabama fits that description, especially if Tua Tagovailoa is dialed in like he was in the Orange Bowl. Ben...

Alabama rumbles to Championship Game with Orange Bowl win over Oklahoma

Alabama completes the task of beating Heisman winner Kyler Murray and the Oklahoma to move on the National Championship for the fourth time in the CFP era. The Alabama Crimson Tide came out swinging against the Oklahoma Sooners in the Orange Bowl. Although the Sooners found a momentum after a 21-point deficit in the first quarter (an Orange Bowl record set for the most points scored in the first quarter), they just couldn’t quite come back and the Tide drove off to victory, 45-34. Alabama’s offense, led by quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, was just a tad bit better than what Oklahoma’s...

Orange Bowl Open Thread: Oklahoma Looks To Prove They Belong Here

In just a few moments the best quarterback in college football will lead his team into action against Tua Tagovailoa and the Alabama Crimson Tide. It’s a showdown between quite possibly the two best offenses in college football which, obviously, means that we’re probably going to see a 7-3 game at the end of the first quarter. But it’s a safe bet that these two teams will put up some points. My money is on the Tide because they actually have what’s known in the business as a “defense.” Oklahoma on the other hand gave up 40 points, 25 first downs, and 524 yards of offense...

Jumbo Package: Is Tua at 85% enough to exploit Oklahoma’s defense?

Spoiler: Yes. It’s prediction time. Here are Forde and crew providing three key factors to the game. They hit on, what I think, will be a huge one: How well OU can contain Jaylen Waddle: THREE THINGS TO WATCH The health of Tua Tagovailoa: The Heisman runner-up said his surgically-repaired right ankle was feeling about 80-85 percent on Wednesday. How much will that impact him? If Tagovailoa has to stay in the pocket more, that shouldn’t be much of an issue against an Oklahoma secondary that isn’t able to cover for very long. Tagovailoa may not be getting past his first reads very...
