DeVonte Smith catches the game winning against Georgia

Nick Saban plans to keep coaching as long as he's productive. He is seen as a win-at-all-costs leader who will sacrifice anyone and anything to get the next win. The Crimson Tide's only championship loss of this era occurred on a last-second touchdown.

But that bitter view really has very little to do with the truth.

Smart told the players in the locker room after the game that he loved them and was proud of what they did this season after going 8-5 in his first year as coach, tight end Isaac Nauta said. He was fine with different styles of play in 2014, 2015 and 2016 to accommodate his quarterbacks strengths. I enjoy the relationships that you have on a team.

"Look, we have two good quarterbacks on our teams". The Knights finished the year 13-0 and defeated the only team to have beaten Alabama this season (as well as the only team to beat Georgia in the regular season), so they're calling themselves national champs.

Alabama could've been ahead 10-6 at halftime, and if that had been the case, it's not likely Nick Saban would've taken out starting quarterback Jalen Hurts.

Saban was hopeful, but he was taking a big gamble.

Hurts did not sulk on the sideline and Saban said he was an asset to Tagovailoa during the game.

After Alabama kicker Andy Pappanastos missed a 36-yard field goal that would have won it for the Tide (13-1) in the final seconds of regulation, Georgia (13-2) took the lead with a 51-yard field goal from Rodrigo Blankenship in overtime.

While the momentum was short-lived, Tony Brown stayed focused and managed to bring in a hard interception on Georgia's first drive of the game. Star linebacker Roquan Smith would appear to be a likely early National Football League draft entry.

We saw all that, and more, before Tagovailoa had his movie moment at the end of overtime.

What will be interesting to see is how Saban handles his newfound quarterback controversy.

When Alabama and Georgia reached the College Football Playoff championship game, I wondered how many people would tune in across the country.

It was a good game and the score was as close as the game. Now, he just needs to return to practice in the spring, and win the job again.

Even the youngest Georgia fans came back to welcome home their team. Great for our players.

Ironically enough, missing the national championship-winning play likely will be Fitzpatrick's final college football memory. With Saban, it was just so insane it worked, Tua Tagovailoa giving the Tide just the spark they needed.

Sometimes change is needed, and the genius comes in making the right call in those two situations. Tagovailoa played with poise and the momentum shifted towards the Tide.

Replacing a starting quarterback in a national championship is nearly unheard of, but for Alabama, it was the difference it needed.

Tagovailoa hit star wideout Calvin Ridley with the tying TD pass in the fourth quarter.

Then a quick Alabama interception set him up in Georgia territory but the Tide settled for a field goal after three straight incompletions.

One play later, Saban was "never happier", as Tagovailoa fired the forever 41-yard touchdown pass into the arms of DeVonta Smith.

Is it possible that Hurts could have brought Alabama back in the second half? But most first year players sit or play on special teams.

The committee's selection of Alabama obviously ended up being the correct one, seeing that it won the national title.

Alabama's walk-off touchdown for its latest championship win will certainly dominate much of college football's offseason.
