Alabama Rolls Into Trump’s White House for National Title Visit
Donald Trump honored the Alabama Crimson Tide’s national title at the White House Tuesday afternoon … all the while praising their state for helping him win the 2016 election.
Nick Saban and the crew hit 1600 Pennsylvania Ave to celebrate their crazy win over Georgia back in January … in which Tua Tagovailoa came off the bench and torched the Bulldogs in the OT thriller.
While Trump says he was impressed with the Tide’s 3-point win, he boasts about his 32-point win in the Heart of Dixie in 2016 … and says he’s proud of how the players represent the “great, great state.”
BTW — POTUS took the easy way out and bailed on pronouncing Tua’s last name … but you can’t really blame him for that.
Hewitt-Trussville quarterback Paul Tyson has committed to Alabama, becoming the CrimsonTide’s first QB commitment for the Class of 2019.

Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa suffers injury in Alabama’s first spring practice
One of the most-watched storylines this spring will be Alabama’s quarterback battle between Jalen Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa.
However, that battle may not take place for a while now, as Tagovailoa — who led the Tide to a second-half comeback in the National Championship Game — has suffered an injury in the first spring practice.
Coach Nick Saban confirmed on Tuesday night that Tagovailoa, a rising sophomore, has injured his thumb and will require some time to heal:
That obviously gives Hurts the edge this spring, but the competition will likely continue into the summer. Tagovailoa could still win the starting job, but this puts him at a disadvantage.
Saban added that the two quarterbacks had been splitting first-team reps until the injury occurred.
