Tua Tagovailoa has been one of the best quarterbacks in college football over the last season-plus, but even Alabama's star quarterback isn't immune from criticism following a rough spring game performance.

The Crimson Tide's star quarterback had an inconsistent spring game performance this weekend, as his Crimson team lost to the White team, 31-17.

Tagovailoa, a Heisman Trophy contender, completed 19 of 37 attempts for 265 yards. He threw one touchdown and one interception.

"For Alabama, it’s time to start worrying," AL.com writes.

Some fans had questions about Tagovailoa's arm strength and accuracy during the contest, leading to questions about the quarterback's health status.

Tagovailoa quickly put those to rest.

“No. It was all good," Tagovailoa said.

The star quarterback dealt with injury during the 2018 season, as he missed some time with a knee injury.

Whatever is going on, the Crimson Tide will need their quarterback to be better when the regular season arrives.

Alabama is set to start its 2019 season on Aug. 31 against Duke.
