However, immediately after their session got over, the Alabama coach Nick Saban, held both of them back to put in his weight of confidence on the duo.

“You know, these two guys that are sitting up here, they’re not defined by one game. These guys played great for us all year, they’re great competitors.

They’re great leaders on this team and they contributed tremendously to the success of this team and we would not be here without them,” said Nick Saban.

“And both of them take responsibility for the loss, but both of them contributed in a lot of ways, in a positive way, to giving us a chance to win and a chance to be here to have an opportunity to win,” the coach continued. “So, I just wanna thank them for that and let everybody know how proud I am of these two guys.”
