It was a rough night for the Crimson Tide. And no one knows that better than Alabama RB Damien Harris.
Which is why it is impressive that a college kid going through the emotions of a heartbreaking defeat could provide a fan base with such thoughtful words in the hours following Clemson’s 35-31 win against the Crimson Tide.
On Tuesday morning, Harris tweeted a message that many Alabama fans likely needed to hear after coming so close to yet another national championship victory. It read: “The sun still rose this morning and our future is as promising as ever. Blessed to be apart of such an incredible team this year. Roll Tide”

Harris was right on the money on a couple of points: The Crimson Tide has another loaded recruiting class coming and will be as good as ever, and the 2016 Alabama team was incredible. Runner up or not, it likely will go down as one of the best in modern history.
Harris himself has plenty to look forward to coming off a sophomore season during which he rushed for 1,040 yards on just 145 attempts.
