Alabama’s Nick Saban, Tua Tagovailoa postgame press conference [FULL] | College Football Sound

  • Published on Jan 8, 2019
  • Alabama head coach Nick Saban, quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and defensive back Xavier McKinney speak at the postgame press conference after losing to Clemson 44-16 in the CFP National Championship game. Saban says he is proud of the Crimson Tide, but adds that he could’ve done a better job. Tagovailoa says that poor decisions he made led to turnovers, not what Clemson’s defense did. Tua adds that they weren’t able to execute in the red zone, with McKinney saying that there were a lot of things Alabama could’ve done better.

    I bet Christian Wilkins was down there the whole game telling Tua he looked cute and he was gonna grab his ballsack if he got close enough and beat him over the head with his Ukelele. I guess we'll never know.

    Hats off to Bama , Clemson just outplayed them all over the field, on both sides of the ball, defense was lights out, but I’m glad Clemson got to play Alabama , I wouldn’t want it any other way, these 2 teams are the best in the country , I think Georgia has the third best team with Oklahoma coming in fourth, then Norte Dame at fifth.,,, I still couldn’t beleive that everybody picked Bama to win with the defense Clemson had., Nobody gave Clemson credit, but Clemson loves to be the underdog, always has. Anyways , I’m sure we’ll all see them again next year, Clemson is gonna have a high fueled offense , defense might need a year to gel up, Alabama will have the same thing, but I give Clemson the edge , Watch out for Georgia though, they’ll be stacked too, it’ll be an intense year coming up, can’t wait , College Football is the best football in the world, there’s nothing that even compares to it, Go Tigers 🐅

    Definitely rather play for my guy Dabo Swinney over Nick Saben. At least when Dabo speaks aboit his plauers you can tell he's genuine when he can explain to you about sttas and standings and respectong others and putting God first all the time. Nick just always looks disappointed in his players, even when they win! Who wants to play for a guy like that???

    This is about Trevor Lawrence. You can't cover a receiver with that kind of QB power. We would have matched them score for score had Tua not been still healing from an ankle and knee injury, affecting his ability to plant and twist into his throws. All his interceptions and close games came after those injuries.
    But whoa, the good news is... Tua should be kicking some serious ass next year, provided he heals fully from his injuries. He will be better in the pocket, and he will be motivated, not necessarily just to improve, but to change destiny.

  • unapologeticwhiteman Winner

    Alabama didn't execute well, that is very true. Clemson is the reason Alabama didn't execute well. Sure they got into the red zone a few times and didn't score, and that is because Clemson showed up to play and Bama did not. I think there was a revenge factor in this game for Clemson as well. Just the year before Alabama beat the piss out of Clemson, and I think it left a bad taste in Clemson's mouth that they too got blown out when everyone picked them last year to win it all.

    CB Saivion Smith single handedly made a difference of 13-17 points in this game. He gave up a 66 yard pass. He stopped running with a receiver across the field that ended in a 20+ yard play and he fell on his ass injured to give up a long 74 yard TD. He was horrible and I'm glad he will not be on this team next year.

    FYI Bama has the much better recruiting class this year. 24 4* and 5* recruits vs Clemson who had just 12. Next year Bama will have a better edge rush and better CB play. The tide will be back!

    I am a Alabama fan and still believe in them, But I m furious with the raffares with all the unnecessary penalty they called on the Alabama team that's why they did not win. But coach Nick Saban is a good man never said a negative thing about his Alabama football team players and that tells me he loves and respect his Alabama football team and players. No worries next year, So keep your heads up high because you are all STRONG and VERY TALENTED, Know that. GO BAMA GO.

    Alabama did shoot themselves in the foot though . Alabama and Clemson are definitely the two best teams . Haha y'all are acting like Clemson didn't get blown out last year ha. So what Clemson did it this year . Alabama will be right back at the playoffs . U can't turn the ball over that much and leave it up to ur defense to bail u out every time .everyone got there new year resolution which was for Alabama to lose lmao. Alabama is still a powerhouse program . And Saban is still one of the best college football coaches that ever lived . Just cause they lost one game everyone is acting crazy . They needed that one loss to get them hungry to win again because they were so used to winning . Facts.

  • E.S. Gonzales
    E.S. Gonzales 5 months ago

    Losing sucks and I get why they don't want to answer questions; especially right after a big loss, but giving Clemson a little credit for the win says a lot about the players mentality entering into this game. They underestimated Clemson, and they did not play anyone all year as hungry as Clemson. Alabama (always) has a head start (which they have earned) recruiting wise. Everyone wants to play for a winning team, and a winning coach. What coach Dabo has done at Clemson is simply amazing. To go head to head with a power house, and split titles these past 4 years is big.

    The reason this loss is big for Bama is because this has given Clemson more recruiting power. The "family" perception Clemson radiates is enticing players to go their way now. This is why Bama lost "Ross" to Clemson in recruiting this past year, and he torched Bama for 150 yards this game. Bama on the other hand does not appear to radiate a "family" perception. When Clemson lost last year they were graceful, and congratulated the other team. It is almost as if this is a passing of the torch win.

    We will see next year. One thing Clemson has going for them is their QB is a freshman, and if he played this well at 19 as a Freshman I can only imagine how good he will be next year.
    PS: Clemson also is the first team in history to win 15 games in one season without a loss! Big!

    Everyone being smug about them talking about executing can take a hike ! Yes Clemson was amazing , they admitted they were good . They were taught by their coach how to execute . How to be great players. This game was awful . They take full responsibility. I don’t know what team would put another team on a pedestal. They represent Alabama . They will just have to work harder and be smarter . Nothing arrogant about that .

    Alabama can never give their opponent credit when they lose it’s always some excuse about how they didn’t “execute.” They didn’t execute against Georgia this year but they still found a way to win the game, why? Because they were the better team! Clemson was the better team in this game which is why they were able to capitalize off bama’s mistakes and make the score so lopsided. Tua was a monster all season against cupcake defenses, he looked like the heisman! But against defenses that were worth being on the same field as bama he struggled! Meanwhile Trevor Lawrence, a true freshman, completely exposed one of the best defenses in the country

    THE CALIFORNIA CRIMSON COLLAPSE, THE BAMA BEATDOWN, THE SANTA CLARA CRIMSON CATASTROPHE, THE CLEMSON COLDCOCK, THE ALABAMA ARMAGEDDON, THE CLEMSON CRIMSON COLONOSCOPY, WTH did i watch, this may go down as the biggest BAMA BITCH SLAP in history..I can go down the list, player by player and show you where Bama has superior players, thats not a question, that's a fact..
    Question is, how did this happen?, Bama gave Clem 8 points right away, pick 6 and missed extra reason, the OC is on his way out, may have had his mind on Maryland, the DC Lupoi is no DC, hes an asst at best but he is one of the best Recruiters in the country..did Saban make him DC afraid he would walk if he didnt?..we need a TOP DC, period and hope Lupoi doesn't leave..a top OC is also needed, Kliff kingsbury would have been perfect..someone along those lines, Kendall Briles?..Saban panicked, 1st time for that and for gods sake get good kickers damnit, that should be a Priority as much as a QB!!!!!!!!..the whole thing was a Fiasco from start to finish..this team is too good for this to have happened. No excuse for this to be on Any football field..AND FOR THE LOVE OF GOD BLITZ ONCE IN A WHILE..if my cat had as much time as Lawrence had he could throw a damn pass and complete it..try this, put a small Fast player on DE and rush the QB, 5'8' 180lbs, pure speed and get to the QB, if a 6'5 260 lbs DE can't, then use the small fast guy..more than one way to do things, think outside the box, hell, do something..
