TUSCALOOSA - Tua Tagovailoa has taken the country by storm, so it’s no surprise to see a record number of reporters on hand for what is usually a mundane Tuesday

Tagovailoa was making his first appearance in front of the media since the start of the 2018 season. He had been available during the 2017 postseason at media events held by the College Football Playoff and made a brief media appearance prior to the Crimson Tide’s fan day on Aug. 4, but had been blocked from media appearances since.

TUSCALOOSA - It doesn’t take long to check the Alabama record book when it comes to passing.

Even in a passing era that featured Joe Namath and Kenny Stabler, Alabama never had a quartet approaching the numbers the Crimson Tide’s receiving corps is putting up.

Jerry Jeudy, DeVonta Smith, Irv Smith and Henry Ruggs, III all have double-digit receptions less than a third into the season and two more, Jaylen Waddle and running back Damien Harris, aren’t far behind.
