Alabama lost, but it doesn’t feel like the end of the world, at least in my household.

The Crimson Tide accomplished far more than I thought possible this season, especially following the loss in College Station to Texas A&M.

But, among the confetti, a future NFL draft pick named Jameson Williams watched on. Williams cemented his future in the NFL after transferring to Alabama from Ohio State this season. It turned out to be one of the best decisions he’s ever made.

In his only year at the Capstone, Williams proved himself to be a dangerous weapon on the offensive side of the ball. He caught 75 passes for 1,507 yards this season and 15 touchdowns in his only season playing for Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide.

During the national championship game, Williams suffered an injury that looked scary, but he managed to find his footing on his own weight as he walked gingerly to the locker room prior to halftime.

However, after suffering the injury, Williams reportedly wanted to play in the second half despite the injury. Saban refused to allow that to happen, and in his press conference following the game, he explained the situation.

Saban explained that Williams requested to go out and play in the second half, but the medical team wouldn’t allow it to happen. He mentioned Williams’ future in the reasoning behind not allowing him to return to the field.

It’s clear that Saban and his team have and have always had the best interests of his student-athletes at heart.
