Perhaps you’re not a fan of college football or sports in general; however, the drama in last night’s College Football Playoff title game between Georgia and Alabama is the stuff of legends, and that’s not hyperbole. With Alabama down 13-0 to start the second half, head coach Nick Saban benched his 25-2 as a starter quarterback in favor of a freshman, Tua Tagovailoa, who’d never started a game.
Tagovailoa went on to lead the Crimson Tide back with his cannon of an arm and quick feet. He ended up throwing three touchdowns to one interception. His performance was downright archetypal and legendary.
