Smart, who spent 11 seasons with Saban - eight as defensive coordinator in Tuscaloosa - quickly built 'Bama East. It was Georgia that won the SEC this season. "He won them with Joe Namath dropping back throwing when people never, ever did it. I just think that, for his time, he impacted the game and had more success than anybody ever could". If punitive action is needed in a narrowly focused, particular case, it needs to be applied that way. "(We) knew this guy (Fromm) was going to be really, really special. Herschel Walker is the best college football player I've ever seen play.

So a voter is left deciding with a choice, in a sense.

Alabama drove into the red zone in the final minute and Saban started playing for a winning field goal to end the game. All four are widely projected to be first-round picks, with Fitzpatrick potentially going in the Top 5-10 and Ridley to follow shortly after that as one of the top receivers in this year's class. The play call, from a four-wide receiver set, calls for an "all go" with each receiver sprinting on a fly pattern to the end zone. And then whoever survives the division has to avoid stumbling in the conference championship game. Until then, teams like UCF will be waiting for their chance at a national title.

The deadline to make a decision is Monday.

While the momentum was short-lived, Tony Brown stayed focused and managed to bring in a difficult interception on Georgia's first drive of the game.

"That was the fifth time we've gotten to be on the field with Jeremy after winning a national championship game", Dale Pruitt said. Georgia will try again for its first since 1980. Eventually Georgia fans will move on from this heartbreak and the image of that Alabama touchdown pass will fade a little from memory. But even though the Tide took center stage, a young man in elementary school stole some of the limelight.

College football's most controversial coach isn't going away any time soon.

Alabama turned to freshman quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and staged a dramatic national comeback in the College Football Playoff championship game. "I bet he's just kicking them like crazy in practice but then everything gets to his head". Auburn beat Georgia and Alabama. Tua Tagovailoa - who would later say he was praying out loud in tongues during the game - had been waiting for weeks to hear his name called.

"As I laid out in this piece, Georgia would have been my No. 1 - for certain - if it had beaten Alabama".

Baker Mayfield is gone.

Alabama Crimson Tide may have bested SEC rivals Georgia Bulldogs on the football field Monday night with a 26-23 win in the College Football Playoff National Championship game, but players from both teams have revealed that they found victory in Jesus Christ.

"I don't know, the biggest difference from Hawaii and Alabama would probably be there's no beaches". Next season Saban is guaranteed to face off against at least two of his former employees. He scrambles and makes plays, throws the ball down the field.

The two goals Columbus scored in the third came with less than five minutes to go in regulation, wiping out the lead provided on Leafs goals by James van Riemsdyk and William Nylander.
