Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is only the second quarterback in the past 15 years to throw three touchdowns in the first half of three consecutive conference games.

According to ESPN, the only other quarterback to do the same is Johnny Manziel during his days at Texas A&M.

As I’ve said many times before, Tua is a special kind of talent. The man slings the rock better than pretty much everybody I’ve seen play college football in the past decade. It’s borderline pornographic when he cocks it back and lets it fly. (RELATED: Latest AP College Football Poll Has Many Shakeups. Number Two Might Surprise You)

You know you’re doing something right when you’re the same category as Johnny Manziel. That’s extremely impressive. Manziel had one of the greatest careers of all time and is widely viewed as a top five or 10 college QB of all time.

When you start putting up numbers like he does, there’s no doubt you’re in an elite-category type of player.

I might be the most anti-SEC guy on the planet, but sometimes you just have to admit to witnessing greatness when you see it. Tua is a great. There’s no other way around it.
