"Jesus left Heaven-perfect communion and happiness with the Father-and died for me, just for a shot that I would even consider Him". If freshman Jake Fromm had struggled as badly as Hurts in the first half and the Bulldogs trailed 13-0, would Smart have yanked Fromm and inserted a much more proven backup in former starter Jacob Eason?

"I still can't believe that this is what happened", Tagovailoa said Tuesday morning. After he made the bold prediction that Clemson would end up starting Trevor Lawrence at quarterback, Schlabach then went on to forecast who the Tigers would be joining in the College Football Playoff.

Tagovailoa learned - throwing a game-tying score on fourth down, with less than four minutes remaining - then stumbled again, drawing the ire of the coach who staked his season on the unproven Hawaiian. Alabama wasn't a conference champion and its best win was either a fringe top-25 Mississippi State or a Florida State team that lost its quarterback for the season against Alabama and won seven games.

Trailing 23-20 in overtime, Tagovailoa went back to pass on Alabama's first play. Miamis Malik Rosier is also likely to face a challenge from NKosi Perry, who will be a redshirt freshman and Notre Dames Brandon Wimbush will have to reclaim his job after Ian Book led the Fighting Irish to a bowl victory. Many of the players were on our same floor, and the night before the game, they were hanging out with girlfriends and cruising throughout the hotel. But coming across the field near the ball was Alabama superstar receiver Calvin Ridley.

It certainly appears that the Southeastern Conference is set up for good quarterback play over the next several years. It's rare that we can see that and clearly recognize it while it's still going on.

Fromm was the biggest surprise of Georgia's breakout season. "I just stuck to that plan".

And that's exactly what he did in leading the Crimson Tide to a stunning overtime win over the Bulldogs to claim his sixth national championship - the fifth in the last nine seasons. IF UCF was put into the playoff, would it have completed an undefeated season with a national title?

Coach Nick Saban has already shown the nation that he's not worried about pulling Hurts in favor of Tagovailoa in a big game.

"There's a lot of positive self-gratification for me to see these guys have success, not just on the field, but as people, as students, as players, to see them go on and be successful with their careers".

Yet, there are some who say and do these things, and you feel like they sincerely mean it. Tim Tebow and his John 3:16 eye-black stickers under his eyes and inside his helmet come to mind. It may also ensure that Alabama remains atop college football in 2018. Every morning, we'll be here for the latest on Alabama football, basketball and every other sport on campus.

"We were tickled to death", Dale Pruitt said. The long kick came after Andy Pappanastos missed from 37 yards out in the final seconds of regulation.

Talking about Karl Dunbar, it was learned today his backpack was stolen in Atlanta two days before the national championship game.

It's just food for thought.

As a Crimson Tide fan, trophy presentations and celebrating national championships are nothing new to me. "He is a relational God, so forming a relationship with Him is most important to me". While those two received much of the spotlight during the postgame celebrating, they were hardly the only two freshmen to get in on the action.
