University of Alabama head football coach Nick Saban rarely cracks a smile on the sidelines, but he couldn’t suppress a grin when his star quarterback told him during a timeout he wanted to keep playing in a blowout against Mississippi State two weeks ago. Tua Tagovailoa, a junior and a projected first-round pick in next year’s NFL draft, was nursing a sore right ankle and his backup, sophomore Mac Jones, could have used some more time under center, but Saban embraced his quarterback’s enthusiasm and agreed to leave him in.
