Tua Tagovailoa tweets message about Jalen Hurts

Alabama’s new starting quarterback has taken to Twitter to post a strong message about the man he replaced under center, Jalen Hurts.

Tagovailoa is upset with those who aren’t appreciating everything Hurts did for the Crimson Tide’s program before he got replaced at halftime of the College Football Playoff national title game.

“Tired of people not appreciating the fact that if this man led us to the National Championship. And for all the fans that are against Jalen, you against me too. You either WITH US or AGAINST US. Love you 2,” he wrote.

Hurts did seem genuinely happy for Tagovailoa after the national title game during an interview with ESPN’s Tom Rinaldi.
