It's fast, brutish and self-assured with its whiplash rise and its renovated sense of itself.
A quarterback battle seems inevitable. He allows himself far less time to celebrate actually winning titles, even ones as dramatic as this one. It doesn't really matter, though.
"This will be a game that I'll never forget" Saban said Tuesday morning.
"We were tickled to death", Dale Pruitt said. In the final half and overtime, the Tide limited UGA to six first downs and 142 yards. The snap and hold looked fine, but the kicked missed badly to the left.
After the Bulldogs (13-2) settled for a field goal, Tagovailoa was sacked.
After a Georgia field goal, Tagovailoa threw a 41-yard touchdown pass to fellow freshman DeVonta Smith to give the Crimson Tide their fifth national championship under Saban since 2009.
We have two that have already put the scarlet and gray at No. 4, so it's only right that USA TODAY tabbed Ohio State as the No. 3-ranked team in the country heading into 2018 to make it two for No. 3 and two for No. 4.
With each regular season game playing such an important role in qualifying a team for the playoffs, an expansion of the playoffs would take away some importance of regular season games. I'm a leader, and that's what leaders do.
If the playoff ever expands, I believe it would have a better chance of succeeding with a six-team playoff where the top two teams get byes. So that leaves them with the opportunity to claim themselves Co-National Champs with Alabama. According to Bovada, Ohio State has 8-to-1 odds to win it all, only behind Alabama (5-to-2) and Clemson (6-to-1), while tied with Georgia.

"A lot of people are rooted in the word over here just like back home", Tagovailoa told Suttles. "The move Saban made definitely adds to his already impressive resume as a coach".
In the world of college football, Alabama has created a dynasty.
Saban endured a change of heart during halftime, electing to bench Hurts for freshman quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.
And this most recent championship will be very lucrative for Tennessee's new head coach. But he understands that championships create "a lifelong legacy that everybody lives with". Patterson won the competition with four victories over a six-day stretch of competition. "I can't describe what He's done for me and my family".
Overall, Brown didn't have his best performance against the Bulldogs. Alabama will lose quite a few key players again. Auburn, who lost to UCF, beat both Georgia and Alabama. Saban must also replace defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt, Tennessee's new head coach.
That's it for the 2017 season. But until the CFP eventually expands to eight teams, the word "IF" will always be associated with the process.
"I think everybody can see that Georgia's going to be a force to be reckoned with", coach Kirby Smart said after his second season ended.
Thrown into the biggest game of the college football season, a former Antioch High School star and current University of Alabama freshman decided to break out.
