Calculated Risk

A lot has been made of the risk taken by Alabama Coach Nick Saban when he put in freshman quarterback Tua Tagovailoa after halftime during the 2018 National Championship game. But Saban’s ability to accurately adjust his game plan is well documented as is the young quarterback’s talent, confidence and composure.

I would characterize the choice to insert Tagovailoa, which injected energy and hope into a team that was flailing, as an informed decision by a discerning leader.

”I think all year long we had lots of confidence in Tua, and we played him so that, if this situation occurred, that he would be ready to play.” ~ Coach Nick Saban
