While everyone else said, 'Get out of the way, ' Marcus would just pull me aside - and he was one of the best quarterbacks there.
"I still can't believe that this is what happened", Tagovailoa said Tuesday morning.
Alabama and Georgia put on a brilliant show for college football fans, a classic game that will give the sport a new standard to shoot for in the years to come. If Alabama had no other option, and if Hurts had been forced to continue, Georgia would have won.
Nick Saban made a quarterback switch at halftime and Alabama has its fifth national championship in nine years thanks to wild overtime victory. He threw an interception in Alabama territory when all the receivers on that side of the field were blocking. "But I have no point of reference". We ended up winning the game 28-14. I dressed for a couple of games as a freshman and when I got over to Sprayberry I started as soon as I got there, as a sophomore.
Tagovailoa had a big arm and could clearly throw the ball longer and deeper than Hurts.
"We got lots of support from our fans, and we love each and every one of them", said Hardman.
Coming in just behind the Tide are a group of perennial college football powerhouses, including Georgia, Clemson, Ohio State, Michigan, and Penn State. "He was recruiting and following up and making sure things were going like they were supposed to".
Saban Wins His 6th National Championship
Jake Fromm will be back and challenged by Justin Fields. The play forced Georgia to kick a field goal - setting the stage for Alabama's winning touchdown. Now the Bulldogs were back ahead, 23-20. The semifinals were played on December 31 the last two seasons.
The touchdown pass won Alabama the game, but the circumstances leading up to it seemed to be disastrous for the Crimson Tide. But this was the kid's movie. He rushed for 64 yards in the second half. There is no denying the success the time has had with Hurts at quarterback, but he did need to bench Hurts and insert Tagovailoa to win Monday night. "But, the reality is our hunger nationally for college football, I think was proven last night that it's as strong as ever because the ratings did go up". "It was really refreshing, and neat, to see those guys back".
"He's good for stuff like this and he has the "it" factor", Hurts said.
"Jesus left Heaven-perfect communion and happiness with the Father-and died for me, just for a shot that I would even consider Him". Hurts will be entering his junior season, one of the most important years of his college career from an National Football League evaluation standpoint. His record as the Alabama starter was 25-2.
Tide fan, Josh Pirtle said he's proud of Tagovailoa's character.
He made it sound easy. But if Alabama could start throwing the ball, the Bulldogs would have to respect the passing game and would loosen up against the run.
Georgia needed to do something to regain control of the game. If your team loses a big game, like Georgia did on Monday, it's going to take a while to get over. Can't make it up like this.
