Alabama's Star QB

When will someone tell all those sportscasters that they are pronouncing that kid's name wrong?

Nearly everyone is pronouncing it TUNG-A-VI-O-LA.

There's no N in his last name, and when he introduces himself on the YouTube thing when he got to meet the team, he didn't pronounce it with an N in there. He said TAHG-A-Vi-O-LA.

There is only one sports commentator who has mentioned this. (That's where i heard the YouTube thing. It's was one of the Sirius sports channels, but i don't remember which host is was.)

4. Not all that tough when I take a minute break it down.

Tu-aniga-manu-ole-pola.

I remember going through this years ago with Manu Tuiasosopo.

I do think it's tough for the "Why-should-I-have-to" crowd.
That's probably why they gave the Heisman to the other guy...lol.
