    That was a great championship game! Even though Bama won.

    I thought Bama was going to lose when they missed that field goal in the last minute of the game, which lead into OT. And in OT after that first down sack by Georgia, I thought the game was over. No way was that Tagovailoa, the true freshman (could have been a drinking game with the amount of time "true freshman" was said in the game), would get Bama a touch down, much less a field goal after taking a sack. But got to give credit to Tagovailoa as he read the defense and wanted to look off the safety. In his post game interview, Tagovailoa said he could hit the outside WR if he could move the safety. He really didn't move the safety per se, but he froze the safety long enough to where the WR was wide open down the sideline. Incredible poise and composure by the true freshman after taking a sack in a high pressure moment as there are some NFL QBs that would crumble under that pressure. Tagovailoa is going to make the Crimson Tide scary next year at QB as it opens up their offense.

    I feel sorry for Georgia, but hats off to the tide.

    My question is why Tua wasn’t starting the whole year outside of being a true freshman? I know Jalen has put up a lot of nice numbers but Tua is the better pure passer.

    Nick Saban seems like such a dick, I guess it's fitting he wins in a time when Trump is prez and KD cuts to GSW for a ring. But a great QB move and mad props to Tua, kid stepped into incredible circumstances and made some incredible plays. That's part of what makes college football (and sports in general!) fun and he turned that game into a crazy one.

    I wanna say Nick Bosa sends him into whatever is beneath the turf at Mercedes-Benz stadium though. C'est la vie, maybe we'll see next year!

    6 national title rings, still can't recruit a kicker.

    Always leaving himself something to work for, I guess!

    Can't re-post Ryan Leaf's sentiments on this, but they are really powerful.

    Depression is ruthless and does not discriminate, many of us know that all too well. Look out for those around you.

    Was depression the reason for the suicide? I did not see anything in the article noting that was the cause. In any case, from the outside, it's hard to imagine why a young person like Tyler Hilinski would want to end his life when it would seem the world and life still has much to offer no matter how bad life seems to be.

    We'll probably never know all the reasons, but depression absolutely has to be a factor. Question is what factors triggered the depression and cause it to be such a degree that he would want to take his own life?

    @Rew - you see Connor Shaw took a position on the Furman staff? Tight Ends coach, I think.

    I could easily see both he and Lattimore ending up as head coaches one day.

    Oh, I didn't see that--good for him! I'm still kind of steamed on his behalf though that it didn't work out with the Browns.

    Maybe the Browns would've won a game this season if they'd given Shaw more of a chance. ;)

    Yeah. I'm not upset in the least.

    I mean. I was kinda upset when Tennessee decided to not hire him. But more laughing at Tennessee.
