Mark Ingram on Alabama freshman quarterback Tua Tagovailoa: 'He's the man'

Tagovailoa (14-of-24, 166 yards, three TDs, one INT) rallied the Crimson Tide from a 13-0 halftime deficit, tossing a game-winning TD in overtime.

You could tell from the way Saban reacted and sounded in the postgame, this was the most satisfying of all his national championships. You'll never see anyone like Saban again. "I think that's helped us build confidence coming into this game to where, if you've got to go in, if your number's called, then you've got to do what you've got to do to give the team the best ... opportunity to win the game". In the heat of post-season play, Saban was willing to do what may be the most unconventional thing - risk the future of his career and the game on a young man who was talented and eager but had little game time or experience with the team.

Tagovailoa came in during the second half of the game to replace starter Jalen Hurts, who was having a not so productive first half. Why he would do it, I don't know, but it wouldn't shock me if he did'. And I want to take a poll of the hundred-and-whatever-30 coaches out there - head coaches - how many of them would have given anything to have him on their team?

Saban isn't ready to go there. The true sophomore has thrown for 4,926 yards, 40 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in two seasons as the starter and rushed for 1,809 yards and 21 scores, posting a 26-2 record over that time. "We were watching my phone and watching the game and just screaming the whole time".

Tua Tagovailoa - the hero of Monday night's overtime win over Georgia - had grown frustrated by being stuck behind Jalen Hurts, according to Florida Atlantic coach Lane Kiffin. The Crimson Tide led 17-3 at the half and steadily built its lead in the second half.


Saban described the comeback win against Georgia on Monday, sparked by the entry of backup quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, as his happiest moment. "But we were able to pull it out, so Roll Tide".

Tagovailoa attended a Saint Louis football camp when he was in the fourth grade, and in a story in The Oregonian back in 2014, he said Mariota took him under his wing at the camp. Though a tie nearly certainly would've assured the Cornhuskers of the national title, Osborne opted to go for two (overtime didn't yet exist in college). There has been speculation that Saban is interested in becoming the new coach of the New York Giants.

Alabama struggled to move the ball at all, but especially through the air, in the first half against Georgia.

"Everybody would kind of look at me different, but the one person who stood out was Marcus", Tagovailoa told The Oregonian.

"He's done it all himself, you know I think where he gets his humility is from his family, how he carries himself is really from where we grew up".
