CFP title game thriller scores big ratings for ESPN

CFP title game thriller scores big ratings for ESPN

I expect our coaches in the area will celebrate the great game and skills of the Alabama team.

Our prediction was pretty spot on, and the Alabama Crimson Tide is the latest college National Championship. "He wasn't going to sit there for another year behind Jalen when he feels like he didn't to get an opportunity to beat him out".

Alabama head coach Nick Saban, left, speaks next to quarterback Tua Tagovailoa during a press conference in Atlanta, Tuesday, Jan. 9, 2018.

"At that point you really need to force yourself to re-assess the situation", he said.

What if I were to tell you that Saban isn't slowing down at the age of 66, and that after winning six national titles, including one with LSU in 2003, he's still adapting and finding new ways to crush the competition? Whose only real offense in the second half was one handsome long throw from Jake Fromm to Mecole Hardman, the one that made it 20-7 at the time. Alabama forced overtime when Tagovailoa hit Calvin Ridley for a 7-yard touchdown pass on a 4th-down play with 3:49 remaining, capping its rally from a 13-point halftime deficit. That got a lot of people grumbling, and not only because the Tide didn't even win their division, or because the title game was an all-SEC affair.

Saban isn't ready to call it a career, at least not yet.

"I just thought we had to throw the ball, and I felt he could do it better, and he did", Saban said of his second-half starter. 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.

"Sometimes just a little change of style, a little spark sort of ignites everyone, and I think that happened in the game last night", Saban said. "Tua's got a higher ceiling". Georgia wasn't going to drive down the field and put this game away. The freshman threw a flawless strike downfield and showed remarkable poise after Georgia sacked him for a 16-yard loss on the previous play. This was a insane demolition derby, with tensions so high that one Tide player had to be restrained from going after an unidentified man on the sidelines and another player needed emergency personnel to cart him away with some kind of medical issue. Tagovailoa said he noticed Georgia was attempting to disguise a Cover-2 defense.

The next play, Tagovailoa found DeVonta Smith for a 41-yard score.

Saban explained after the game that he felt the offense needed what Tagovailoa could provide when he made a decision to move away from Hurts at halftime. We haven't seen that from a Saban team before.

And this comes after two bonafide attempts to end the drought over the past two years.
