Alabama football wins DI Nat'l Championship

Tua Tagovailoa #13 celebrates a touchdown pass with Jalen Hurts #2 of the Alabama Crimson Tide during the third quarter against the Georgia Bulldogs in the CFP National Championship presented by AT&T at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on January 8, 2018 in Atlanta, Georgia.

It was an wonderful way to end the season, but before the Crimson Tide even hoisted the trophy, there was controversy.

Tagovailoa entered the game at the start of the third quarter with the Tide trailing 13-0. After the half, it was all Alabama as Tua Tagovailoa was given the nod to lead the squad in the second half; and lead he certainly did.

Instead, he responded with a 41-yard touchdown pass to DeVonta Smith, against a Georgia defense trying to hold Alabama to a field goal.

Some of these celebrations and moments are just too great to ignore.

NOTRE DAME: Two people with knowledge of the situation say Notre Dame is promoting linebackers coach Clark Lea to defensive coordinator, replacing Mike Elko, who left for Texas A&M.

I would have said no before Monday night.

Demonstrators protested in Atlanta as President Trump arrived to attend a college football national championship game between the University of Georgia and the University of Alabama on January 8. "I am very proud of this team and this university, and we're not going anywhere".

"I was thinking how I'd do it, but I completely left my mind, and I just went for it", said Bozeman, who gave his fellow offensive lineman a warning about five minutes before the big moment. "Tua's got a higher ceiling".

The Alabama Crimson Tide are favorites to repeat as national champions next season according to Las Vegas oddsmakers.

There have been a lot of games in Alabama football, especially when Paul (Bear) Bryant was the coach doing all the winning.

That vigorous training leads to more players reaching their maximum potential during their time playing under Saban.

"I could not believe it", he said. It appeared to finally halt the Tide's momentum after a predictable comeback and possibly open the door for Georgia to win their first national title since 1980.

When asked where he would rank Saban's accomplishments all-time, Fisher wasn't ready to make any big declarations. While we still think the UCF Knights deserved to be in the playoff and possibly in the final game, the National Championship game proved to be an exciting one. Do you dominate your era?

"Nobody could have known it at the time", Finebaum said, "but the missed field goal only made things better". "He's going to be in the top as good as there's ever been". "Without spending time every day with Jesus, listening and talking to Him, I can't be the man I want to be".

Atlanta was still buzzing about the call on Tuesday morning, and Alabama fans will long be discussing the guts it took for their 66-year-old coach to pull the trigger on one of the most dramatic, desperate moves yet in his tenure.

"He was just reassuring me that he would learn from it", Saban said. "I enjoy the competition".
