Tua Tagovailoa rushes to the defense of Alabama's benched QB Jalen Hurts

Tagovailoa, who attended the same high school as former OR quarterback Marcus Mariota - Saint Louis School in Honolulu, Hawaii - went from unknown freshman to perhaps a Heisman Trophy candidate in 2018, throwing a game-winning 41-yard touchdown pass in overtime to DeVonta Smith. I mean, he won championships running the wishbone.

Time and time again, Fromm found ways to get his team out of trouble. "Just to get taught by him and him giving me attention I didn't deserve, it was just awesome".

With this season's title coming against former long-time assistant Kirby Smart, Saban now is 12-0 against his ex-assistants, with Monday night's victory the only one that didn't come by at least 17 points.

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.

However, the New York Daily News reminds us that two years ago, when the team ended up with Ben McAdoor, "Saban reportedly threw his hat in the ring and the two parties even contacted each other for a day before cutting negotiations off after Saban's wife reportedly wanted to stay in Alabama".

Deal or no deal? Several senators claim tentative agreement on immigration
The White House vows to fight what it calls an outrageous ruling by a federal judge in California. Trump told senators in the Oval Office, a source briefed on the meeting told CNN.

"A very motived unit, one that was ready to go get it", Hurts said. 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.

We're reminded of the time-tested adage - that's why the game is played. It still takes some chutzpah for a coach to bench the 2016 SEC Player of the Year in the highest-stakes game for someone who had thrown just 53 career passes.

The general consensus was the two genuinely love and respect each other, and it first became known last April when Hurts referred to Tagovailoa and Mac Jones as his 'little brothers'.

The Tide remained determined and steadily began erasing the deficit. Trailing by three and facing fourth-and-5 from the Dawgs 33 with 42 seconds to go, Sherrill called a timeout to discuss his team's options.

And let's credit Georgia, which had a compelling story of its own with true freshman Jake Fromm at quarterback. "But we were able to pull it out, so Roll Tide". The Alabama coach had two stints in the National Football League before going to Alabama.

Chinese officials demolish yet another church: in Shanxi
The church member, speaking on condition of anonymity, said a large anti-riot team carried out the demolition. That church was demolished only 20 years of its construction without any reason.

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

So much so that Tagovailoa was planning to transfer, Kiffin says.

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

Fitzpatrick won the Bednarik and Thorpe awards this season, and he has won two national titles with Alabama.

There were so many things, but the most important one is when I went to church with one of the coaches.
