Nick Saban explains what's next after winning his 5th title at Alabama

Tua Tagovailoa

Tua Tagovailoa

The freshman from Hawaii threw for 166 yards and three touchdowns, including the game-winning 41-yard pass to DeVonta Smith in OT. They are so loaded they could bring in last year's No. 1 dual-threat quarterback off the bench with next to zero experience and he leads the team to the national championship. "He has unbelievable talent, unbelievable release and can get out of trouble as you saw"'. "Just to get taught by him and him giving me attention I didn't deserve, it was just awesome".

Saban previously coached in the National Football League with the Miami Dolphins, but only lasted two seasons as the Dolphins failed to make the playoffs during his brief tenure.

While it's obvious to assume that Tagovailoa will be the starter next season, that doesn't mean Hurts wasn't instrumental to getting the Tide to back-to-back national title appearances. "I thought Tua would give us a better chance and a spark, which he certainly did".

Nick Saban nearly definitely isn't leaving Alabama after winning a fifth National Championship as head coach of the Tide. While Tua's parents came to Alabama with him to ease his transition to college, he said early Tuesday that he still feels homesick at times.

Saban isn't ready to go there. During the 2011 season, the Crimson Tide stifled LSU 21-0 with one of the great defensive performances in college football history. Will Hurts return as the starting quarterback in 2018 or will Tagovailoa officially take over as the signal-caller of the future? Jalen Hurts accounted for 351 yards of total offense while throwing for two touchdowns and running for one. Tua Tagovailoa outdueled another true freshman, Georgia's Jake Fromm. Facing a fourth-and-four, Saban chose to gamble and go for it with 3:56 left.

Tagovailoa wasn't a well-seasoned freshman, having only played in seemingly meaningless minutes throughout the season, although he was heralded as a top quarterback prospect coming out of high school.

Holt said his book took two $100,000 bets on Alabama on the money line (minus-190) Monday and two $100,000 bets on Alabama minus-4.

Kiffin repeated that he would have had Alabama throw the ball more than it did against Georgia. "It put us out of field-goal range".

The Tide rallied from a pair of 13-point deficits, and managed to pull it together after Andy Pappanastos shanked a 36-yard field goal try that would've won the game on the final play of regulation. I really do. I think I'm going to.

The coach said that nothing is ever too big for the player he and his Saint Louis School players called Reverend Tagovailoa because he would recite passages from the Bible and relate them to their situation on the field.

If you stayed up late to see Alabama win 26-23 in overtime, bully (or "Dilly dilly!") for you.
