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

Jalen Hurts helped get Alabama to two straight national championship games, with just two losses during those two seasons (one of those losses being to Clemson in last season's national championship game).

Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban says defensive tackle Da'Ron Payne is also entering the draft, and wide receiver Calvin Ridley already had announced his departure. Averion Hurts, a former starting quarterback at Texas Southern, defended his brother on Instagram - and lambasted those who were happy to see him replaced.

Saban described the comeback win against Georgia on Monday, sparked by the entry of backup quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, as his happiest moment. I mean, one of the first things that I said to Jalen was we wouldn't be here if it wasn't for you.

If the national anthem and honoring of our military personnel prior to Monday night's kickoff in the national championship game at Atlanta didn't make you proud to be an American, perhaps Hollywood or some other non-American destination is for you. It is tempting to wonder, in the days after one of the more startling finishes to a college football season in living memory, whether he might want to seek challenges outside of the college game.

You know how the rest of the game went. But the rumors can't be totally dismissed due to the mutual flirting that has taken place between the Giants and Saban every time the team has an opening.

An Amber Alert was issued briefly, but around 5:30 p.m., police tweeted the child had been found safe. Several officers returned fire, striking and killing Bennett, police said.

Ridley leaves as Alabama's second all-time leader in catches, 220, and receiving touchdowns, 18, and third all-time in receiving yards with 2,749 yards.

It was an entirely different story in the second half, however, thanks to Tagovailoa. Just looking at a from the outside in I would college very unlikely.

Harris led the Tide with exactly 1,000 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns while ranking third in the conference averaging 7.41 yards per carry. I got a good grade from my coaches and the NFL.

However, a source told the New York Post's Paul Schwartz that Saban is not interested in leaving Alabama for the Giants. "When I do some coaches don't answer", he said in spring 2015.
