Seven players of the week named for the MSU game

The Alabama coaching staff selected seven players of the week following the Crimson Tide’s 38-7 win over Mississippi State on Saturday at Davis Wade Stadium. Tua Tagovailoa and Jedrick Wills Jr. on offense; Shyheim Carter, Trevon Diggs and Anfernee Jennings on defense; and Jordan Battle and Joseph Bulovas all earned the recognition for their efforts in Starkville.

Statement on Tua Tagovailoa from Dr. Lyle Cain

“Tua underwent successful surgery on his right hip Monday morning in Houston. The procedure went as planned, and he is resting comfortably. Tua’s prognosis is excellent, and we expect him to make a full recovery. He will return to Tuscaloosa in the next several days to begin his rehab.”

Statement on Tua Tagovailoa from Dr. Lyle Cain

“For the past 24 hours our medical team has consulted with multiple orthopedic experts across the country, who specialize in hip injuries and surgeries. Based on that research, Tua is being flown to Houston tonight to be evaluated and is scheduled to have hip surgery Monday. As previously stated, we anticipate a full recovery. The main focus has been, and will remain, on Tua, his family, and making sure we are providing them the best medical care possible.”

Tide lands Keon Ambrose

Alabama has landed a commitment from 2020 four-star power forward Keon Ambrose-Hylton (6-8, 210) of Toronto, Ontario. Ambrose ranks as one of the nation's top 100 prospects. Here is his commitment video.

On Tua Tagovailoa

An elegant essay on the forum by member 92 D.

Statement on Tua Tagovailoa from Alabama Team Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Lyle Cain

“Tua Tagovailoa sustained a right hip dislocation that was immediately reduced at the stadium. He is undergoing further testing to determine the best course of treatment. He is expected to make a full recovery but will miss the remainder of the season.”

Tide win could prove costly

Alabama got a key SEC road win Saturday in Starkville, beating Mississippi State 38-7. Heisman candidate/junior quarterback Tua Tagovailoa played great. He also got hurt, injuring a hip and bloodying a nose when put back into a game. Bama led 35-7 at the time, late in the first half.

MSU post-game notes

In today's contest at Mississippi State, junior running back Najee Harris became the first Alabama player to score three touchdowns in the first quarter of a single game.

Turnovers by Bama lead to loss at Rhode Island

A horrible first half laden with turnovers was too much to overcome in the end as Bama’s basketball squad fell 93-79 in the first road game of the Nate Oats era. The Crimson Tide was down by as many as 22 points in the first half, but was able to cut the Rams’ lead to five in the final minutes. Then, the turnover bug bit again and bit hard.

Oats notches first win at UA

Tide players hold out hope; seek improvement

Alabama’s 46-41 loss at home to LSU Saturday was tough for all concerned in the UA football offices and throughout the Bama Nation. However, all is not lost and Nick Saban’s 2019 Crimson Tide team could still make its way into the four-team playoff field with only a minimum amount of outside help.

Statement from UA on Jahvon Quinerly

Alabama men’s basketball student-athlete Jahvon Quinerly was denied his appeal from the NCAA Committee for Legislative Relief. Below is a joint statement from Alabama’s Director of Athletics Greg Byrne and men’s basketball head coach Nate Oats regarding the NCAA’s decision: “We can’t begin to express how disappointed we are with this decision. Jahvon and his family have been through a set of circumstances that no student-athlete in the history of the NCAA has experienced. Their name has been falsely dragged through the mud for two years, and we felt confident that the NCAA Committee for Legislative Relief would recognize this very unique set of circumstances. We will continue to support Jahvon and his family in every way that we can.”
