Alabama, Saban embracing two great QBs as good problem

Alabama, Saban embracing two great QBs as good problem

He is seen as a win-at-all-costs leader who will sacrifice anyone and anything to get the next win. Arians, who just announced his retirement, said there was one franchise that could convince Saban to leave Alabama for the potentially choppier waters of the NFL.

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

The first CFP championship game between OR and Ohio State after the 2014 season drew almost 34 million viewers, a record for ESPN. "Especially at a position like quarterback, where you're not always best friends with the guy". "It was a team effort tonight, you know".

Just when it seemed like Georgia would send the Tide to their second consecutive loss in a national title game on Monday night, Saban reached his hand through the grave and unleashed a new fury on the college football world: a freshman phenom quarterback and his fierce pack of classmates.

Saban did not appear with the team.

Tua Tagovailoa threw a 42-yard touchdown pass to DeVonta Smith on the Crimson Tide's second play of OT to complete a 26-23 comeback victory over the Bulldogs in the CFP title game in Atlanta.

When his young star quarterback got off to a lousy start, Saban switched to an even younger one, true freshman Tua Tagovailoa, and came climbing out of a couple of 13-point holes.

Saban went into the locker room and made a big move.

Tua Tagovailoa and Jalen Hurts will both be battling to be the 2018 Alabama starting quarterback.

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

Tagovailoa hadn't appeared in a game decided by single-digits.

The Alabama Crimson Tide may be just one day into their reign as college football national champions, but they're already the favorite to win it again next year according to the oddsmakers in Las Vegas. Georgia fans have not had this type of positive energy about this program in decades, and there is no reason that losing the national championship game will bring Georgia down. Star linebacker Roquan Smith would appear to be a likely early National Football League draft entry.

Hurts still had to watch from the sideline as Tagovailoa experienced similar ups and downs that he has seen numerous times when we was the sarter.

He did not like the way his team had played on the offensive side of the ball while being blanked for 30 minutes, and he knew that it was unlikely anything would change if he didn't do something drastic.

"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. Just a great win. He secured a permanent spot in the heart of Alabama fans. Great for our players.

"He was hiring coaches and getting ready to play the national championship all at the same time", Pruitt said. With Saban, it was just so insane it worked, Tua Tagovailoa giving the Tide just the spark they needed.
