"[It shows] he's doing one hell of a job and he's getting it done", Fisher said of Saban's latest national title win.
"I just didn't feel we could run the ball well enough", Saban said when it was over, "and I thought Tua would give us a better chance and a spark, which he certainly did".

Look at that - they can share monogrammed towels. What a game and what a fitting end to the College Football Season! But in these times, everything seems to come up Crimson. This worked out exceptionally well for the program, as he won six national titles while coaching the team from 1958 to 1981.
"We've been down before and it ain't over until the last whistle, so everybody just kept fighting and we believed in everybody on this team", Smith said. Alabama had to slip into the playoff without even winning its division.

The decision to lift starter Jalen Hurts, who entered the game with a 25-2 career record, could go down as one of the biggest decisions in the illustrious career of arguably one of the greatest living coaches of the modern college football era.
Thomas didn't reveal specifics about the call, but hopefully he told Saban "thank you", too - the Tide victory won his bet with Georgia alum Kevin Kisner.
Lee raced to a friend's house to watch and saw Tagovailoa's game-winning 41-yard touchdown pass. He had missed a wide open Calvin Ridley in the end zone on the Tide's first drive, which eventually led to a missed field goal. The top tackler was a sophomore.
