Finally, at the the U.S. Cross-Country National Championships in Anchorage, Alaska, former University of Vermont skier Caitlin Patterson raced to her fourth national title, completing the sweep with a come-from-behind win in the women's classic sprint final. "He has unbelievable talent, unbelievable release and can get out of trouble as you saw"'. "The message to the team tonight after this game was I hope you take something from this game and the resiliency that you showed in this game and it helps you be more successful in life". Let's flip the script around and put Saban's ex-assistant on the other sideline, Georgia boss Kirby Smart, in the same situation. "Coach brought the quarterbacks together and said, 'Tua, you're going to start out the second half".
"The amusing thing is, if this second half doesn't flip like this and Alabama's (not) moving the ball, it doesn't change - people that really know what's going on would tell you that Tua was leaving", Kiffin said on The Dan Patrick Show.
However, the New York Daily News reminds us that two years ago, when the team ended up with Ben McAdoor, "Saban reportedly threw his hat in the ring and the two parties even contacted each other for a day before cutting negotiations off after Saban's wife reportedly wanted to stay in Alabama".
Nick Saban nearly definitely isn't leaving Alabama after winning a fifth National Championship as head coach of the Tide.
Three Thompson touchdowns on the ground produced 18 of those points as he scored from 14, 2 and 1 yards out. Fitzgerald is a proven leader and, if healthy, will have the experience and ability to be the player that lines up behind center in the first game of 2018.
Three-star safety Randy Russell (Opa Locka, FL) was one of eight of Florida's signees during the Early Signing Period but he will never take the field for the Gators.More news: Chinese state destroys Christian megachurch as religious crackdown continues

The Tide remained determined and steadily began erasing the deficit.
"A lot of people are rooted in the word over here just like back home", Tagovailoa said.
Saban previously served as the coach of the Miami Dolphins in between his stints with Louisiana State and Alabama.
One bad half - and there's no doubt Hurts failing to be remotely effective passing the ball against Georgia was an eyesore - doesn't always compel a coach to go to the bullpen.
The Tide actually could have won the game in regulation, but missed a very make-able 36 yard field goal attempt with just a few seconds to go and that set up the OT. "So that's how I knew what was going on".
It's fitting that CG Technology sports book vice president Matt Holt has a 30-1 futures bet that he placed in May on Georgia to win the national title.
"Everybody would kind of look at me different, but the one person who stood out was Marcus", Tagovailoa told The Oregonian.
