I'm an Alabama fan, and I'll be pulling for them in all games except Miss State - my alma mater. But I watched a replay of the championship game last night. I saw Tagovailoa miss about as many passes as he hit. Georgia could have easily won that game - example a juggling call on a non-interception in the end zone that would have stopped a drive. I didn't see a young Peyton Manning. He wasn't the best QB in that game. I think Alabama needs a better passing attack and expect Tagovailoa to provide it. But I think the expectations for him are getting way overblown. If he has a great season, it will be because of the defense and running game of Alabama giving him better than average opportunities. Let's tone things down a bit.
Corrected: Robinson started playing as a running back, but later switched to defense and starred as a safety. Some say he redefined the position.
Your article states: "Fourteen years ago, Brown and Williams made history by fueling Auburn to a perfect 13-0 season. They made even more history when they became the first backfield duo to ever get picked in the top 5 of the same NFL Draft." This is incorrect. In the 1960 NFL draft, Billy Cannon of LSU was drafted #1 and Johnny Robinson of LSU was the #3 pick. Both were running backs. Both chose to sign instead with the new AFL, but that doesn't change where the NFL drafted them. Now this was the era of one platoon football, and both played both offense and defense. So their statistics are far different from the current era. But both starred in the AFL, and eventually played in the NFL when the leagues were merged. Robinson started playing as a running back, but later switched to defense and starred as a safety. Some say he redefined. Just some correct history from someone who watched them play both at LSU and in the AFL.
