Saban joins the late Alabama coach Paul "Bear" Bryant as the only coaches with five AP titles.
Our teams weren't so hot when I was at Sprayberry, but that's just the way it goes sometimes.
The Dawgs lead by double digits at halftime with a 13-0 lead in front of what could be considered a home crowd at the Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta. Furthermore, the Big Ten went 7-1 in bowl season, proving that Ohio State won the deepest conference in all of college football. But the eventual result was the same: Georgia loses the game and the national title. After the game, the brothers swapped jerseys.
Coach, where do you think this ranks you in coaching history?
Hurts had led the Tide to the championship game last season, so Saban wasn't giving up on him easily.
He paused. He winked. Blankenship proved to be a valuable weapon while Alabama needed to make up for Pappanastos' misses. "He's definitely dominated his era and his time", Fisher said. Bozeman said he would not have proposed if they hadn't won.
You've had at least a day to process what you never expected to see. "Probably have several that should and probably have several that shouldn't, from a business perspective".
"At halftime it looked a little hopeless".
"Someone tried to give me a game ball".
"I think everybody can see that Georgia's going to be a force to be reckoned with", Smart said. "Now look at us!" ESPN even called the newsroom asking if they could air it. You can see Jackson's interview below.
Well, folks, we have a new National Champion in the world of College Football. Andy Pappanastos missed a 36-yarder to send the game into overtime. "It was a calculated spark and it paid off". "Am I right, Tua?!" After erasing a 13-point deficit with freshman backup quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, No. 4 Alabama defeated No. 3 Georgia 26-23 in overtime to secure the National Championship in an all-SEC College Football Playoff final. He inserted Tagovailoa, a true freshman from Hawaii. A Giants official told the New York Daily News that the idea is "ludicrous".
He'll even have time to prepare.
After trailing 20-7 in the third quarter, Alabama rallied to tie the score before missing a game-winning field-goal attempt to end regulation.
So a voter is left deciding with a choice, in a sense. While I am joking, it would open the door for even more controversy.
On the first play of the series, Harris provided a 16-yard run to get things started - meaning he accounted for 51 of Alabama's 71 yards in the drive on just those two plays.
But they won. Again.
Now Saban owns six rings. The 2017 season provided an interesting case for the College Football Playoff committee.
This won't center on just one play, but, rather, a series of kicks.
Let's start with the first piece of evidence. "They will just be ready to play again".
But UCF beat Auburn.
Then Saban was on to planning things like Thursday's team meeting. Also, the hiring of co-defensive coordinator Alex Grinch is good, too.
Georgia finished second, its best ranking since 2007, and Oklahoma was third, followed by Clemson and Ohio State.
Meanwhile, Fisher has left Florida State to lead another annual Alabama opponent, Texas A&M. However, Alabama's defense certainly kept the Tide in the game.
"Good for Nick", Fisher begrudgingly praised.
