When you fire off a take that is too hot.
If you were able to stay up past midnight, you saw one of the best finishes to a football game that you’ll ever see. Alabama with the walk-off touchdown to defeat Georgia 26-23 to win the College Football Playoff.
Ok, it was not the greatest college football finish ever, but it was a pretty exciting second half as opposed to that boring first half. Seriously, if you love punting, missed kicks, and stalled drive, the first half was your heaven. Georgia went into halftime up 13-0, but it should’ve been worse and I’m sure they’re kicking themselves for it.
Down 13-0, what does Nick Saban do that NO OTHER COACH in college football would do? He benches his starting QB, Jalen Hurts, for a true freshman, Tua Tagovailoa, who had not received a meaningful snap all year. The word on Tua was that this kid can spin the rock. He came from the same high school as Marcus Mariota. However, Jalen Hurts was 25-2 with National Title on his resume and Nick Saban pulled him for a true freshman. There’s a reason why he’s the best coach of all-time and has 6 national titles with 5 of them in the past 9 years.
It worked. Tua went OFF. Georgia had no answer for him because honestly, they never saw him on tape so they didn’t know what to expect. Tua was fearless, standing in the pocket, lowering his shoulder on big runs, and brought the Tide all the way back into the game. They even had a chance to win it in regulation…
Worst Things That Could Happen To You:
- Burned Alive
- Being an Alabama Kicker
- Buried Alive
Yet, somehow, someway, Alabama does what Alabama does. They win games that no one else can win. Walk off touchdown.
I bet the under at 45. Yay.
