Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa was planning to transfer, Lane Kiffin says

Ohio State would go on to win the BCS national title.

Time and time again, Fromm found ways to get his team out of trouble.

"As long as I feel like I can do a good job for the players and the team - from an energy level, from a focus level, from a concentration level, from providing a good staff of people around them to help them have success", he said.

Arians was asked why the Giants in particular so intrigue Saban.

Most people, including Tagovailoa, probably, believed he was a better quarterback than Hurts, although he never got his big opportunity - until one half remained in the Crimson Tide season. "But I think I'm going to". The former LSU coach then went on to Alabama, the Crimson Tide winning five national championships with Saban at the helm.

This week on the Dan Patrick show, Kiffin confidently claimed that Tagovailoa would've transferred from Alabama if he wouldn't have gotten a chance to play in the second half Monday.


With the emergence of freshmen signal callers Tua Tagovailoa of the Alabama Crimson Tide, Jake Fromm of the Georgia Bulldogs and Keytaon Thompson of the Mississippi State Bulldogs, those teams won't be too concerned about that position in the future.

"[I told him] just be yourself and play your game", Hurts said.

Hurts, who entered the game with a 25-2 record as Alabama's starting quarterback, will have strong competition for the starting job next season. Holt said most prop action has been on Bo Scarbrough to score a touchdown and Calvin Ridley to have more receiving yards than Javon Wims.

Tagovailoa's 41-yard bomb to receiver DeVonta Smith on the second possession of overtime caused the Titans quarterback to jump off his couch in Nashville.

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.

The same is going to be true at Alabama.


Georgia got the ball first in overtime, but the offense failed to move the ball.

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. "It put us out of field-goal range".

"It was a decision I don't know I would have been courageous enough to make".

However, that may not be the case, as FOX Sports' Jay Glazer posted on Instagram that Arians told him he was "just messin" with Giants fans. I don't like it, ' Collins said while in Atlanta before Alabama's overtime win on Monday.

Much of what Frost says is agreeable to many.

With all due respect to the houndstooth-hat legend, Paul "Bear" Bryant, and the six national titles he won roaming the Alabama sideline, Saban has surpassed them all for the No. 1 mantle.
