He chose to bench his starting quarterback, Jalen Hurts, entering the second half of the College Football Playoff National Championship Game. "They said these three guys are NFL-bound, and that they are just ridiculous". "So, I thank God for that". The Tide might have a quarterback controversy ahead, but first Alabama will celebrate another title. Alabama defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt, like Georgia's Kirby Smart two years ago, worked the title game before taking over as an SEC head coach.
The regular season has sort of gone down the memory hole because of the excitement and potential that comes with a national championship game.
"I've never played in front of a president before", linebacker Terrell Lewis said. "There's lots of highs and lows". From now on, we're a team to be reckoned with.
After suffering a sack on Alabama's first offensive play of overtime, Tagovailoa cemented his spot in Crimson Tide football lore with his game-winning heave to a wide-open Smith.
Tagovailoa was brilliant at times, though he had a few freshman moments. He also darted away from pass rushers and made some impeccable throws, showing poise of a veteran. Bryant coached 38 years at four schools, compiling a.780 win percentage (323-85-17).
Instead, I'm going to look at the positives. "Smitty was wide open". Hurts won games, sure, but there were warning signs; he was ineffective as a passer, limiting the effectiveness of Alabama's offense and allowing opponents to key on the Tide's powerful running game. It's a testament to the relentless machine Saban has built.
"We felt like we were on the outside looking in, you know", said Alabama tight end Hale Hentges and that it all felt weird... "And he did. He did a good job, made some plays in the passing game". The shear number of successful moves that it takes to win just one championship is monumental, much less five since 2009.
No. 3 Georgia had taken a somewhat commanding 13-0 lead over Alabama at halftime with a 1-yard touchdown run by Hardman with seven seconds left before the break.
Bandai Namco Not Planning to Release Dark Souls Trilogy in America

The Bulldogs would be wise to get him the ball as much as possible, and he's proven he can do great things when he's given a chance to make plays.
This was nothing like the others. "That's how I knew what was going on".
Jake Fromm was 16 of 32 for 232 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions.
Georgia got the ball back but immediately went three-and-out and was forced to punt the ball back to the Crimson Tide. UCF won 111 times or 25% of the time.
Demonstrators protested in Atlanta as President Trump arrived to attend a college football national championship game between the University of Georgia and the University of Alabama on January 8. In no other game, including the SEC Championship Game rematch with AU, were either held below 4.3 yards per carry. Alabama had to slip into the playoff without even winning its division. The long kick came after Andy Pappanastos missed from 37 yards out in the final seconds of regulation. A nervous quiet gripped the crowd of 77,430 as 'Bama burned the clock.
In this format, a UCF team that went 13-0 this season wouldn't have to stage a faux national championship celebration like it did this year when Florida governor Rick Scott declared the Knights the true national champions.
After the big game, Tua Tagovailoa, the Alabama freshman quarterback who helped rally his team to a big win, found his family and prayed.
Tagovailoa tricked the safety, one of two safeties playing back in split coverage, into thinking he would throw to the quarterback's right.
