What's next for Alabama's title game hero — Hot reads

Don't put too much stock in Saban saying he wasn't going to coach forever, because with talented freshmen like that he's going to be around awhile.

These efforts merely reflect a desire to give you both sides of the story.

Coach, is this the best of your six national titles? "I think people forget that the game isn't over". Freshmen were everywhere for the Alabama offense in the second half: Najee Harris at running back; Henry Ruggs III at receiver; Alex Leatherwood at left tackle after All-American Jonah Williams was hurt. It's unknown if Tagovailoa is still considering that or whether Monday night's benching could lead Hurts to transfer instead.

Kevin Sherrer is leaving Kirby Smart's Georgia staff to become Pruitt's defensive coordinator at Tennessee. It becomes a part of the legacy of that team. Ridley, second in career receiving yards at Alabama, is projected as a first-round selection by many experts, including Mel Kiper of ESPN. The Facebook post of his interview with WHNT News 19 has gone viral.

Watching Monday night's College Football Playoff National Championship Game between Alabama and Georgia, the two cheered on the Crimson Tide from their bedroom television in Amite, La. But Kiffinmania is real, and if the coach keeps it up at FAU, he's going to be a more legitimate candidate for other Power 5 jobs, and soon. However, no flag was thrown. The guys already enshrined in a building just a few blocks from Mercedes-Benz Stadium, the College Football Hall of Fame.

The Buckeyes will sorely miss J.T. Barrett's leadership but should feel confident in Dwayne Haskins' ability to take the reins of the offense as a sophomore. The final scores were almost the same, too! Alabama's Andy Pappanastos went 2-of-4 kicking, which included an early miss from 40 yards.

"I think preparation to this point has been the key thing without offensive coaches helping us throughout the process and just building the trust in each other - from the O-line to the receivers creating a bond with each other", Tagovailoa said postgame.

He won his sixth title Monday night with an 18 year old freshman from Hawaii (Tua Tagovailoa) throwing a 41 yard touchdown pass to another true freshman from Louisiana (DeVonta Smith). Blankenship proved to be a valuable weapon while Alabama needed to make up for Pappanastos' misses.

Georgia senior running back Sony Michel played strongly, gaining 98 yards and averaging seven yards per rush as the Bulldogs built a 20-7 lead midway through the third quarter. Until further notice, the defending conference champion is going to win it again. Tagovailoa took an unnecessary sack on first down, making it second and 26. "I've got nothing to be sad about".

Tagovailoa ran across the first-down marker before he was brought down.

The rest of the world may view Saban as a bully in Alabama coaching gear, but he is one of the smartest leaders college football has ever known, and he has the hardware to prove it. If not for the 9-yard scramble on third down, Alabama punts, with those points never appearing on the scoreboard.
