Mark Edwards: Rewatch gives different view of title game

Somewhere in that massive pile of ashes, where the Georgia Dome once stood, the Bulldogs fell 5 yards short of beating eventual national champion Alabama in the 2012 SEC title game. His 41-yard toss to Devonta Smith walked-off Georgia, ending another insane Alabama national championship game. 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. In overtime, after 'Bama missed a game-winning field at the end of regulation, was down 23-20 and Tagavailoa took a horrific 16-yard sack, he then made a throw for the ages.

At 66 years old, Saban shows no signs of slowing down, ready to take on what figures to be challenges from many of the same suspects in 2018 - Georgia, Clemson, Ohio State. It came on Georgia's only touchdown drive in the first half, which increased the Bulldogs' lead from 6-0 to 13-0.

When asked about this, Saban said he had no idea what the reporter was referring to. The closest comparison would have to be the New England Patriots who have won five in the last 15 years. The Tide's leading passer, rusher and receiver in the game were all freshmen. But in these times, everything seems to come up Crimson.

The decision to replace Hurts with Tagovailoa proved why Saban is the considered the greatest coach of the modern era. It becomes a part of the legacy of that team.

As reported in a prior Christian Post article, both teams going head to head Monday night had players that are not ashamed to openly talk about their Christian faith.

Georgia will lose a slew of senior contributors to the NFL. "It was good to just briefly talk to him; it's always fun to tell people congrats in person versus over a text or anything like that". The offensive line will be better next year, as a five-star freshman may take over at left guard and two five-star prospects - Isaiah Wilson and Cade Mays - will battle it out for the starting right tackle job.

At the end of the first half against Georgia, Alabama coach Nick Saban knew he needed to make a change. The work we put in-the workouts, the running and all that.

Saban didn't have to make that move. He tugged at the black-and-white beads on his Alabama-themed lei, adjusted his backward cap and let the emotion flow into the mic. He just happened to find it with arguably the most memorable walk-off sequence in college football history. It sounded more like a regional championship than a national championship with the game being played at the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. He did this all after halftime, against a talented Georgia defense that stifled the Alabama offense throughout the first half. Alabama had no answers offensively, as sophomore QB Jalen Hurts had completed just three of his eight pass attempts for only 28 yards with another eight rushes for 47 yards. Miami? Wisconsin? Auburn lost three games, two of them to playoff teams, but also beat Alabama and Georgia.

Georgia sacked Tagovailoa on third down on his first possession. This is the ninth time in the last 12 seasons that a team from the SEC has won the national championship. There isn't necessarily a wrong answer to which team should have been fourth.

For those who initially were disinterested with Monday's national championship football game disguised as a Southeastern Conference game - and that thought droned on sports talk radio ahead of the matchup, well, what a game it turned out to be.
