Exactly how much that matters, I don’t know, but it counters the narrative that Alabama is a two-touchdown favorite and should walk away from this. As far as Tua, I think his health is more important than whether he’s upset about it. He didn’t look all that upset, but I’ve never seen him look upset about anything. I think that’s demeanor. I don’t think it’s going to be that big of a deal.”Alabama and Oklahoma are set to play in the Orange Bowl on Dec. 29.last_img read more
