I am a big fan of Ken Stabler and always have been. He was one of the best QBs Alabama has ever had, but I liked him while he played for the Raiders. That’s the reason I wanted to read this book. This is a very good story of his life and times . . . and boy did he have some times.
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.
