Nick Saban’s won his 6th title by coaching his best game ever
Nick Saban and Alabama are champs of the college football word again, after a thrilling overtime win over Georgia, and Colin thinks it was Saban’s best coaching effort of his career.
Even though Saban is portrayed as rigid, he showed rare in-game flexibility and a willingness to take a massive risk when he benched two-year starter Jalen Hurts for Freshman Tua Tagovailoa, who re-energized the Alabama offense and made one of the most memorable throws in the history of college football to win the game.
Saban is the best college coach of all-time, and last night was the most impressive coaching performance of his illustrious career.
Tua Tagovailoa is a left-handed Russell Wilson
It only took the second-half and overtime for Tua Tagovailoa to go from backup to Alabama legend. After an incredible 3 touchdown performance in relief of starter Jalen Hurts, including the game-winning, 41-yard TD walk-off TD strike to win the title, Colin is convinced Bama has a superstar in Tagovailoa, and a clear path to National Championships for the next several years.
Colin was so impressed with Tua’s combination of escapability and arm talent, today he called him a, “left handed Russell Wilson.” The similarities also extend to Tua’s personality and dedication to religion. It’s a lofty comparison for a true Freshman, but Colin saw enough last night to feel comfortable making it. Sometimes superstars are unmistakable and jump off the screen.
