Danny P. Smith is the sports editor and columnist for The Starkville Daily News. He has set the bar so high that nobody in his profession may ever threaten his place as college football's all-time best coach. This is the third year in a row that the title game featured two teams from the Southeast region. The group of potential early entries includes All-America safety Minkah Fitzpatrick, tailback Damien Harris, wide receiver Calvin Ridley and defensive lineman Da'Ron Payne.
CBS included Big Ten's Michigan State (No. 5), Penn State (No. 6), Wisconsin (No. 7), and Michigan (No. 14) in their Top 25 as well. In others still, writers imagined several iterations of your win. One "way too early" preseason poll already has Georgia ranked No. 1 for the beginning of the 2018 season - which, of course, combined with $1.50 will get you a cup of coffee at the nearest Waffle House. Then, coming out of half-time, Saban made a switch at quarterback, taking out Hurts in favor of true freshman Tua Tagovailoa. And if we have that kind of leadership, there's no doubt. Now all those guys know how good it feels to reach that stage and how horrible it feels to lose once you arrive. Harbaugh will have three of his own recruiting class. The defense should be loaded again. But it seems soon never arrives. It's fast, brutish and self-assured with its whiplash rise and its renovated sense of itself.
Georgia appeared to be the better team for most of Monday night. See the paragraph above about the comments from the Left on the tax bill. Just a great win.
The powers that be have wrestled with this puzzle for decades, walking a tightrope between the traditional splay of bowls and an enhanced mechanism for determining champions.
Making it even harder to swallow is the fact that Georgia held a 13-point lead twice in the game.
Zinedine Zidane defends faltering Real Madrid
He has led the club to a record consecutive Champions League titles and a La Liga title since he took over at the helm. I can't imagine myself as a coach in two, three years, because things are not like that.
At the start of last night's College Football National Championship game in Atlanta, the network camera panned to President Donald Trump while the National Anthem was being played and sung.
But it did not come easily.
But Saban's sixth national title, and fifth in nine years, was different and not just because it put him in a tie with Alabama icon Bear Bryant for the most by any major college football coach.
It's the stunning finish you'd want in every national championship game. Hurts won games, sure, but there were warning signs; he was ineffective as a passer, limiting the effectiveness of Alabama's offense and allowing opponents to key on the Tide's powerful running game. For the fourth time, two teams from the same conference finished Nos.
This team won despite losing four first-round draft picks and seven defensive players who were picked within the first four rounds.

"I knew Tua was, just let's say, more of a passing threat than Jalen was", he said.
Tua Tagovailoa came off the bench at halftime for Nick Saban and the freshman quarterback led a Crimson Tide comeback, capped by Andy Pappanastos' xx-yard field goal with xxx seconds left, to give No. 4 Alabama a 23-20 victory against No. 3 Georgia in the College Football Playoff national championship game Monday night. This play will be remembered as one of the few positive first-half plays for the Tide, however. You can't look at me and tell me any of those teams deserve another chance at the national championship.
So who is the favorite going into 2018? He secured a permanent spot in the heart of Alabama fans.
Alabama reached the playoff without even winning the SEC West, getting the nod from the selection committee despite a less-than stellar resume.
