The comeback amazed me, and afterward, it seemed as if Georgia had outplayed Alabama. If they had won, do you want to see them compete against the Alabamas and Clemsons of the world?

"I still can't believe that this is what happened", Tagovailoa said Tuesday morning. The Wolverines offense was bad and if youre a great coach who supposedly has a skill for developing quarterbacks — and Harbaugh is being paid as such — you need to do better than 109thh in the country in yards per pass attempt.

With his team still trailing 20-13 late in the fourth quarter, and facing 4th-and-3 at the Georgia 7, he somehow threaded a pass through all kinds of end-zone traffic to Calvin Ridley to tie the game.

Overall, this year's three game college football playoff was up 21% from last year for ESPN.

"When we lost last year on the last play of the game, we said don't waste a failing", Saban said. Miamis Malik Rosier is also likely to face a challenge from NKosi Perry, who will be a redshirt freshman and Notre Dames Brandon Wimbush will have to reclaim his job after Ian Book led the Fighting Irish to a bowl victory.

The 19-year-old added that he's "so thankful for an incredible season" and praised the senior players for setting "the standard". We laid a licking on Florida like the Gators haven't experienced in years, and got their coach fired.

This is the Crimson Tide's second College Football Playoff (CFP) National Championship and their fifth since 2009. "So, I thank God for that".

In terms of the Buckeyes, they will have to replace quarterback J.T. Barrett, offensive tackle Jamarco Jones, center Billy Price, defensive ends Sam Hubbard and Tyquan Lewis, linebackers Jerome Baker and Chris Worley, cornerback Denzel Ward, and safety Damon Webb.

Clemson's defense may be enough to get them there again even with a new quarterback, but it is pretty early to make these predictions. "I couldn't be prouder of him taking advantage of the opportunity". Along with Ohio State, Wisconsin (No. 6), Michigan State (No. 9), Penn State (No. 11), and Michigan (No. 13) are all in the Top 25. P JK Scott and OLB Rashaan Evans were the only Alabama players to play in the College Football Playoff each of its four years.

"I just hope the younger class doesn't take it for granted that it's just going to happen", Smart said.

In fact, we see it almost every day. Tagovailoa's performance as a rookie - one who played mostly garbage time during the regular season - will earn a spot in Alabama history. Only one thing is certain: it worked. They won it in Atlanta, releasing a cathartic cheer that reverberated from Augusta to Albany, Augusta to Athens.

Coming into the game, Tagovailoa had completed 35 of 53 passes for 470 yards with eight touchdowns against one interception.

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. It was the must-see play for the 2017-18 college football season.

If I had the inclination, I could go blow-by-blow over all the things that cost Georgia the national championship, including a handful of atrocious calls by the refs that had the potential to change the game.

The Crimson Tide have now won five of the past nine national title games, which is an unprecedented feat. See the paragraph above about the comments from the Left on the tax bill.

As a Crimson Tide fan, trophy presentations and celebrating national championships are nothing new to me.
