Nick Saban surprises Justin Thomas by actually answering congratulatory phone call after Alabama win
Last year we lost on the last play of the game and this year we won on the last play of the game.
But remember, Saban had to win his six national championships in a much tougher era than Bryant, who captured three in the 1960s when there were no scholarship limitations and his '73 title was split among the major wire services with Notre Dame.
Tagovailoa was named offensive player of the game, making plays running and passing.
At half-time of Monday night's national championship game, I was left with a thought that I hadn't ever had watching an Alabamafootball game in Nick Saban's tenure. "It's a great opportunity to see them and know they still got our backs at the end of the day".
All of those way-too-early Top 25 polls are stacked at the top with Big Ten teams. Of course, every team aside from the celebrating Crimson Tide and grieving Bulldogs are already starting to focus on next season.
Georgia took a 23-20 lead on a 51-yard field goal by Rodrigo Blankenship in overtime, and the final blur unfolded in just two plays. Recognizing that Alabama needed a better, more polished arm to give the offense a chance to come back from a rare double-digit deficit, Saban turned to Tagovailoa, the blue-chip recruit from the same high school as Marcus Mariota in Hawaii.
Fromm seems to be firmly in place at Georgia after taking over early during the season due to an injury.
"I called him expecting to leave him a voicemail and I think he caught me by surprise more than I ever have when he actually answered", Thomas told the Paul Finebaum Show on Wednesday.
Alabama's newfound spark was briefly extinguished. A true freshman quarterback came off the bench to guide a rally that became a stunning overtime victory. It came on Georgia's only touchdown drive in the first half, which increased the Bulldogs' lead from 6-0 to 13-0. That led to Alabama benching quarterback Jalen Hurts in favor of Tagovailoa at the start of the third quarter. Tua Tagovailoa lead the team after spending a majority of the year backing up Jalen Hurts, showing off his ability and calm demeanor in the process. It will take all the factors into consideration and then runs the game based on how it would play out.
Magicians always make sure they have a trick up their sleeves for the biggest moments.
A few teams have knocked them off once, but Alabama just gets back up stronger than ever.
This was nothing like the others.
Saban will be almost forced to unleash Tagovailoa - a Heisman Trophy contender with a bright NFL future -heading into the 2018 season. Was he aiming for Ridley? Was Monday night's title game a warning shot to the entire nation for next fall and beyond? Both teams brought their A-game, and there could only be one team crowned as the National Champs. Other key players in the game were freshmen.
Just over half of all Georgia football players graduated according to the most recent data available on the NCAA website. One possible concern: "Saban will be working with his third different defensive coordinator in four seasons".
Ohio State finished fifth in the CFB rankings and its argument was that it was a conference champion and had more quality wins than Alabama.
Tagovailoa's game-winning 41-yard touchdown pass in overtime to Devonta Smith was a thing of beauty. Alabama went on to lose to No. 2 Notre Dame 24-23 in the Sugar Bowl, giving the AP title to the Fighting Irish.

Last month saw lawmakers miss what had widely been seen as a deadline set by the White House for such legislation to be delivered. The comments came as the nuclear deal deadline looms. "That's what caused the people to take to the streets", he said.

Jay Ajayi key to Philadelphia Eagles running the ball
Considering that the Rams were averaging close to 30 points per game during the regular season , this is a pretty impressive feat. Quarterback Ron Jaworski connected with Harold Carmichael on a 13-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter to take a 6-0 lead.
