Tua Tagovailoa's Heisman Loss Is Alabama's Bulletin Board Material Gain

The tweets started pouring in minutes after Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray was awarded the 84th Heisman Trophy. They were from Alabama players past and present, voicing their pure displeasure with the outcome.

“Fake news,” Crimson Tide long snapper Thomas Fletcher tweeted. Then, a couple minutes later, “Do they know not to poke the bear...?”

Former wide receiver Parker Barrineau sent a tweet that said, “TUA WAS ROBBED because of a sprained ankle.” And there were more.

The grumbling was a direct response to Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa coming in second place.
