It is a little more complex than that, but, essentially, that is what the voice of the Alabama Crimson Tide does in preparation for national championship games.

Impressive feat, of course, but Ingram, who won the Heisman Trophy in 2009, lavished praise on freshman quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. Brandon Lee of Honolulu says Hawaii residents take pride in watching someone from the islands shine on a national stage.

Would the Houston-area native head back to his home state and play in the Big 12? You put us in a position by the plays that you made and the way you played all year long, but it just seems to me like, if we're going to have the best chance to win this game, that we may need to do it in a different way.

Tagovailoa threw for three touchdowns, none bigger than the one that went 41 yards in overtime, to DeVonta Smith, who caught the ball in stride and into the end zone for the game winning score after Georgia had taken a 23-20 lead on a field goal.

On top of that, Tagovailoa's success earlier in the game - in addition to what we know about most left-handed quarterbacks - had Georgia more tired of the right side of the field.

The win gave Alabama and head coach Nick Saban a fifth national championship title in nine years. Saban has Frost beat by a full calendar year in the "recognizing Tagovailoa's talent" game.

For one former SEC coach, the move to Tagovailoa came a bit later than if he were still the coach.

Heisman Trophy victor and current Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota, who went to the same all-boys Catholic school in Honolulu as Tagovailoa, took note of the young QB on Tuesday. I'm sure you guys saw the interview after the game.

"The kid is a stud", Mariota said, per the Titans' website. I think he understood that. "I just got to train hard like Tua did and I can go far like him", said current Saint Louis quarterback, Chevan Coreeiro.

Hurts threw for just 21 yards in the first half.

"He always wanted to compete with the best and play with the best", Passas said.

Time and time again, Fromm found ways to get his team out of trouble. Tagovailoa is a more naturally gifted passer and a solid runner, and the national championship game could have formally signaled a changing of the guard under center. "That's what our school breeds", Passas said.

Kiffin added that staff and players were pushing for Tagovailoa to get action during the Tide's CFP semifinal game against Clemson.

"I thought it was incredible for the nation to see what we already knew about Tua Tagovailoa", Passas said.

Gold joined me and Lee Shirvanian on The Opening Kickoff on WNSP-FM 105.5 to talk about the call of the game. "I'm so happy for him".

"We've had this in our mind that, if we were struggling offensively, that we would give Tua an opportunity, even in the last game", Saban said. The National Championship was Tagovailoa's last and only hurrah as the nation's golden boy.
