I understand the angst for some Tua is a generational player I believed he was destined to win the Heisman and another NC.
If he stays that's great if he goes I'm happy for the generational wealth it will bring him and his family. He and his family deserves it.
So either way Roll Tide!

I get it but there was 0 people who didn’t think he was going pro when the season started.. so we are kinda playing with house money but I think he is a class kid and we should be just as excited either way.. and either way we win...

While I would love for him to stay, I don't know his family situation, needs etc., I will thank the young man and will follow him in his career at the next level.

I don't think anyone will be sour with him regardless of his decision. Most of us would love nothing more than to see him throw for another season. I, like many others just love watching him release a football and seeing where it ends up, because there is more good than bad that happens. I absolutely hate when people say "generational talent", because it's overused and loses its luster when so many media fools use it to try and drive up their intelligence on a subject, but Tua is clearly a generational talent at quarterback. Trevor Lawrence ain't shit compared to Tua, and stats prove that. That being said, it would just simply be great to be able to watch greatness one more time in our favorite uniform is all I believe people are wishing, but are also just as happy for the guy if he goes to the NFL and makes his millions.

Tua goes pro and drafted by Dolphins. Lia transfers to Miami. Whole family moves down there. Sorry, had to.

Glad to see him walking without a cane or crutch. Just awesome in my mind.

I just hope that the Dolphins build a good line for him. He has a year behind Fitz as his contract runs for another year and they can use money to build that line and get some receivers.

It will be interesting to learn what the family plan is for Taulia going forward. I doubt we learn that until after the draft (city that takes 13).

I gotta say this. You can tell from the things he is saying that he really was torn on this all. Pretty sure he wanted to stay but the pull of the money was too much to overcome. Sure family members really called it. Why get hurt for free when you can get hurt for a bunch of money?

As far as Lia, Tua says he is still there but who knows after spring.

Am I just reading into things a little too much or does Tua look extremely uncomfortable up there?
