Football title game was awash with Tide

Football title game was awash with Tide

With the emergence of freshmen signal callers Tua Tagovailoa of the Alabama Crimson Tide, Jake Fromm of the Georgia Bulldogs and Keytaon Thompson of the Mississippi State Bulldogs, those teams won't be too concerned about that position in the future.

"The funny thing is, if this second half doesn't flip like this and Alabama's (not) moving the ball, it doesn't change - people that really know what's going on would tell you that Tua was leaving", said Kiffin, who just completed an 11-3 season in his first year as head coach at Florida Atlantic.

- Alabama defeated Georgia 26-23 in overtime on Monday night to claim the 2018 College Football Playoff National Championship.

He returned on the biggest stage in college football, and for a team that had endured a multitude of injuries on defense, the 6-foot-1 giant killer delivered it to a 17th national championship.

Tagovailoa's first big play of the contest came on his second drive, as he eluded a pack of Georgia defenders, darted to his left and picked up a first down. He had two atrocious misses in the game, including a 36-yard chip shot that would've won the game at the end of regulation.

Georgia quickly countered, though, as Fromm teamed with Mecole Hardman for an 80-yard TD on the fourth play after taking over at the 7-yard line following the kickoff.

You know, in a day when the NFL has become the Look-At-Me league, with players who score touchdowns and then celebrate in such acts of self-indulgence that you could confuse them for giant third-graders, I find myself even as a true, Dye-hard, alum, Auburn supporter - a Tua fan.

We still aren't entirely sure if Tagovailoa was trying to throw it to Harris or Ridley on that clutch touchdown pass on fourth and 4 in the fourth quarter.

It was a good game and the score was as close as the game. Two years ago, Georgia brought in Smart, Saban's top lieutenant, to bring to his alma mater a dose of Alabama's Process.

It's not magic; it's just the best coach college football will ever see. We wouldn't have gotten the witness the exciting story of Tagovailoa use his left arm, churning legs and electric competitive nature to rally his team to a national championship. What he didn't do: sleep much before attending a morning-after news conference. "We were watching my phone and watching the game and just screaming the whole time".

The College Football Playoff determines the Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) national champion. Here are three reasons the Bulldogs will be back to the Championship Game sooner rather than later.

"It's time for him to retire", Fisher joked.

In rewatching, two plays stood out in the first half that could've dramatically changed everything. These hypothetical questions will continue to play a part in how the CFP is perceived, even when it is expanded to eight teams.

In all frankness, I was pulling for the Bulldogs, but mostly for an entertaining game, which we all got.

A little less than a year after the Atlanta Falcons blew a 25-point lead and lost in overtime to the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl, there was more pain for many of the local fans. " ... You have an opportunity to help players be more successful in life".

He went on to glorify God for what He's done for the athlete's family. They have it every year in the NCAA tournament, but nobody complains about expanding that.

"It's nice to see this next generation of kids kind of coming up and representing Hawaii well", Mariota said. "I mean, he won championships running the wishbone".
