Tide was in danger of losing Tagovailoa, former OC Kiffin says

Tide was in danger of losing Tagovailoa, former OC Kiffin says

He was saved in the extra period by Tagovailoa, a dual-threat quarterback from Ewa Beach, Hawaii, who played at the same school as Tennessee Titans quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota.

On second down, Tagovailoa found DeVonta Smith for a 41-yard game-winning touchdown pass. Malkom Parrish was trailing on the play and Dominick Sanders was supposed to provide safety support.

The next several days (and weeks) will be spent lauding the Crimson Tide, but don't forget about the Georgia Bulldogs. In his senior season alone, Harris rushed for 36 touchdowns.

Can a comeback be planned, or is it a twist of fate, a moment in reality where statistics and odds are useless and every play seems like divine intervention? With the ball centered in the middle of the field, Pappanastos lined up for a kick to win the national championship. "I'm being reckless, but we just won the National Championship", said Randolph.

However, Scarbrough himself took to Twitter late Monday night, and disputed that interpretation of what he said, Instead, Scarbrough claims that he shouted, "F*ck Georgia!".

Defense needs to contain Jalen Hurts on the ground. Georgia started the second quarter with two impressive drives of 50-plus yards which ended in field goals.

Georgia responded exactly two minutes later with a stunning score.

Five freshmen contributed to Bama's win - along with Tagovailoa and Smith were running back Najee Harris, who finished with a team-high 64 yards rushing, and wide receivers Henry Ruggs III and Jerry Jeudy.

In the end, Tagovailoa came in and cut loose 24 passes, completing 14 for 161 yards and three touchdowns.

In February 2017, Aaron Suttles of BamaInsider.com wrote a good, extensive piece on Tagovailoa.

Hurts is 25-2 as a starter and is still considered to be one of the most explosive dual-threat quarterbacks in college football.

Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher, who spent time as an assistant under Saban at LSU, acknowledged the place his former mentor has cemented for himself. Fans too. Word leaked and spread about how good he was in practice.

That is what allows a team like Alabama to have sustained success. It was important for me to be true to myself and be the team leader I have always been.

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

Coach Nick Saban made his way down the steps, offered a wave and quietly drove away.

"I pursue a relationship with Christ through spending quality time with Him", he said. Prior to the game, numerous country artists were showing their allegiances on social media; the Zac Brown Band, Georgia natives, were cheering for the Bulldogs.
