Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has had a sensational season up to this point, and most would say is the front runner for this year's Heisman Trophy. He has also been battling knee and quad injuries for the past few weeks, appearing to reaggrevate both against Mississppi State last week.

Now, one would think with FCS opponent Citadel rolling into town, a seemingly easy game for the powerhouse Crimson Tide, that Tagovailoa would get a week's rest right? Wrong. Head coach Nick Saban made it clear to the media that there are no plans to rest Tua come Saturday.

John Fricke of the Morning Show laughed at Saban saying "develop some confidence in each other;" like the team hasn't done so far this season.

However, Hugh Douglas said that's what makes this Alabama team great, and what makes Nick Saban a great coach.

"You just heard why Coach Saban is the best coach in college football right now. That's the reason why--because no matter how good you are, there's always stuff that you can do better." 

Do you agree or disagree with Saban's decision?
