NEW ORLEANS – You’re only as good as your last game, apparently, because there were plenty of doubters regarding Alabama’s chances of knocking off defending national champion Clemson in the College Football Playoff Sugar Bowl semifinal at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Monday night.

Alabama had looked pitiful in a loss to Auburn, while Clemson looked dominating in winning the Atlantic Coast Conference Championship Game. Although the Tide was a slight favorite entering the game, you’d never know it by listening to the outside chatter.

NEW ORLEANS – A season-ending injury to freshman linebacker Dylan Moses in practice for the College Football Playoffs was the latest in a string of injuries at that position for Alabama.

Thankfully for the Crimson Tide, sophomore Mack Wilson could step in at his mike linebacker position after returning from surgery to repair the fifth metatarsal bone in his right foot. Asked about the position on Friday morning, defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt dropped a bombshell when he revealed Wilson had struggled with the injury all season.

NEW ORLEANS – Tua Tagovailoa and Jalen Hurts may be competing at the same position but Tagovailoa, the true freshman, understands his role in supporting Hurts, the two-year starter.

The pair even find time to joke about it whenever sports talk shows or internet forums get too critical, according to Tagovailoa.

NEW ORLEANS - In the rarest of moments, Alabama offensive coordinator Brian Daboll got a chance to meet the press on Thursday.

“(Both) are very similar,” Daboll said.

“I think Nick dresses  a little better.”
