Still Can't Figure Reason Sadistic Saban Plays Tua vs Citadel

Since any player - especially Tua (on crutches or using a walker now) - can get a season-ending injury in any game - what logical reason is there to play "God's Gift to Football" for even 1 possession vs Citadel?

Does crazy old Nick just want to cement his rep as the screwiest essohbee in football?

Because he doesn’t want to create the narrative that Tua is hurt even though he is. That could lead to them falling in rankings, not make it in with 1 loss etc

BINGO! If Tua is hurt and they lose to UGA there's no way they get in. If Tua is "fatigued" and has a month to prepare they have a much better shot of "passing the eye test" in the committee's mind.

How could Tua be fatigued when he hasn't played a 4 quarter game this year? ??

the pedigree he has because he's stupid.

Like all great coaches there is always rhyme and reason in their madness! lol

I want to beat them with Tua 100% healthy. If he's not, that will be the excuse as to why they lost.

If the playoff committee thinks Tua is out...

and UGA beats Bama they will leave Bama out of the playoff. If Tua is still limping around Bama will get the nod as the fourth seed. It also makes people practice for Tua.

A loss by Bama in the SECCG, assuming of course Clemson, Notre Dame and Michigan all win out, Bama will be left out (as they should be).

The final four would be Clemson, Notre Dame, Michigan and Georgia (in no particular order).

There is NO WAY the CFP committee could justify including Bama ahead of any of those four teams.

Because he wants everyone to think Tua is okay. The boys from the banks of the Ashley River could ruin Bama's year.


He doesn't want bammer fans doin' this?

He doesnt want Clemson to know how badly Tua is hurt.


He also wants to assess Tua's injury in a live game scenario where Tua can likely get full playing time against a cupcake team. Its a practice and evaluation game for Tua and his injury, and a way to get Tua to show out against a weak opponent so the cameras project an image that Tua is 100% when he isnt.

a lot of good theories here but the main reason is probably

Playing injured players who should be on the bench healing is the way of the SEC coach and nothing is going to change that. It just means more.
