26 - 23! Now What? The heady high of Alabama's thrilling win in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game is fading. A little. Saban proved he's The Coaching Master by daring to pull Tua off the bench to recalibrate the team. Jalen brought them to the championship game; Tua took them to the win. They are two unbelievably, talented young men.
Fans are excited for the team and the upcoming football season. Happily, the National Championship can't hurt in attracting top tier players on National Signing Day - February 7. Five juniors have declared for the NFL draft so far, and they will need to be replaced (reloaded). Saban & staff are still adjusting to the new recruiting schedule after the early signing period in December.
