  • 'Seattle' was name of Alabama's championship-winning TD play

But thats not quite right.

It was a miraculous overtime comeback victory, and Tagovailoa knew exactly where to give the credit after the game.

"As long as I feel like I can do a good job for the players and the team - from an energy level, from a focus level, from a concentration level, from providing a good staff of people around them to help them have success", Saban said. "Whatever is called, I'll run it". "He gave them some juice and swung the momentum back to them". He brought on lightning-rod Lane Kiffin to coordinate his offenses. The quarterback play has rarely been better than average. He cycled through coordinators who grew his coaching tree.

According to ESPN's David Purdum, Alabama is now listed as a 3/1 favorite to repeat as champions next season at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, leading the field of college football hopefuls.

Alabama could've been ahead 10-6 at halftime, and if that had been the case, it's not likely Nick Saban would've taken out starting quarterback Jalen Hurts.

Saban explained after the game that he felt the offense needed what Tagovailoa could provide when he chose to move away from Hurts at halftime.

So 2018 begins with the kind of game and the kind of memory that we had throughout 2017.

Alabama trailed Georgia 13-0 at half time and allowed an 80-yard touchdown pass from Jake Fromm to Mecole Hardman to fall behind 20-7 halfway through the third quarter.

He added that Pakistan has taken action against the Haqqani network and the effects will be visible in due course of time. The New York Times cited unnamed administration officials saying as much as $1.3 billion in aid could be suspended.


There was more than Tagovailoa, of course. This play will be remembered as one of the few positive first-half plays for the Tide, however. But on the very next play, he rebounded to throw the winning touchdown. "When your opportunity comes, make the best of it". The Tide won with Saban grasping for straws this time, not mechanically processing and dominating one situation after another.

Overall, Brown didn't have his best performance against the Bulldogs. During the first half of Monday night's game, it worked. Aber's logic was that UCF beat Auburn and that Auburn beat both Alabama and Georgia, while UCF didn't lose any game this season. Hasn't mattered. Heading into this recruiting cycle, Saban greedily compiled seven consecutive top-rated recruiting classes.

Saban did not appear with the team. Thats what Saban has created.

Coach Nick Saban made his way down the steps, offered a wave and quietly drove away. This didnt look like Georgias last trip to the big stage.

At 66 years old, Saban shows no signs of slowing down, ready to take on what figures to be challenges from numerous same suspects in 2018 - Georgia, Clemson, Ohio State.

But after Monday nights decisions became Tuesday mornings heroics, it doesnt matter.

A college football season that was riddled with chaos and excitement ended Monday night with a fitting conclusion.
