Aia nō ʻo Alabama ke kū kilakila aʻela.

ʻO ia aʻela kekahi poʻo nūhou o kēia lā, ka lā 9 o Ianuali, he Pōʻalua. Welina e nā makamaka. ʻO Ke Aolama kēia a penei ka nūhou.

ʻO Alabama nō ka ʻoi o nā kulanui pāʻani pōpō pekupeku o ʻAmelika. Lilo aku nei ka inoa moho pōpō peku o nā kulanui i ke Kai ʻUla i ka pō Pōʻakahi nei ma ka lanakila ʻana aku nei ma luna o Keokia ma ka helu ʻai he 26 i ka 23. Akā, ma hope o ka hapahā ʻelua, kohu mea lā, na nā ʻĪlio Pulu o Keokia e kāʻili i ka lanakila, ʻo ka helu ʻai i ia manawa, he 13 a Keokia, a he hua nēnē kā Alabama. Akā, holo ihola ka manaʻo o Nick Saban, ke kumu aʻo o Alabama, e huki ʻia ʻo Jalen Hurts, ka ʻalihikūlele hui mua, a e hoʻokomo aku iā Tua Tagovailoa, ka ʻalihikūlele hui ʻelua. No Hawaiʻi nei nō ʻo Tagovailoa, a ʻo Kāna Lui kona kula kiʻekiʻe i pāʻani pōpō peku ai. A ʻo ka makahiki mua kēia āna o ka pāʻani ʻana no Alabama. Akā, hilinaʻi ihola ʻo Saban i ua kāʻeʻaʻeʻa lā o Kāna Lui. A ʻike ʻia aʻela nā ʻai a ka uʻi. Ua maikaʻi ihola nō hoʻi ka hana a ka ʻaoʻao kūpale, a i ka hopena o ka hapahā ʻehā, ua paʻi a paʻi aʻela, he 20 a Keokia, a he 20 a Alabama. A ma ka wā pāʻani kaulele, lilo mua ka pōpō iā Keokia, a loaʻa ihola he 3 ʻai ma ka peku ʻana a Rodrigo Blankenship i ka pōpō he 51 ʻīā. A i ka hina mua o Alabama, kulaʻi ʻia akula ʻo Tagovailoa a hina he 16 mau ʻīā ma hope o ka laina hoʻouka. A lana aʻela paha ka manaʻo o nā ʻĪlio Pulu, ʻo lākou ke lanakila. Eia naʻe, i ka hina ʻelua, hiu aʻela ʻo Tagovailoa, a nou akula i ka pōpō iā Devonta Smith he 41 ʻīā a loaʻa ihola ka ʻai holo, a lilo ai ʻo Alabama, ʻo ia ka ʻoi.

Hoʻomaka ihola ʻo Colleen Hanbusa i kāna hana paipai kālai ʻāina no kona alualu ʻana aku i ke kūlana kiaʻāina. Hoʻohalahala akula ʻo Hanabusa i ke Kiaʻāina David Ige no ka hiki ʻole iā ia ke alakaʻi. A he pono ke alakaʻi hou i mea e emi ai nā pilikia e kū nei, ʻo kahi noho emi kūpono, a ʻo ka lawa o nā kūlana hana no nā hanauna e hiki mai ana. ʻO Hanabusa, ʻaneʻane e piha nā makahiki he 20 i kona lawelawe ʻana i ka hana ona i koho ʻia ai e ka lehulehu. He kenekoa mokuʻāina ʻo ia no nā makahiki he 12, a ʻo ia ka wahine mua i lilo ihola, ʻo ia ka pelekikena ʻAha Kenekoa mokuʻāina ma ka moʻolelo o Hawaiʻi nei. A he ʻehiku ona makahiki e hana ana ma ke ʻano he lunamakaʻāinana ʻAmelika Hui Pū ʻIa.

Eia mai kā kākou ʻōlelo noʻeau,

Pau kuhihewa i ka nani o ʻAipō.

Hoʻopuka ʻia kēia ʻōlelo i ka wā e ʻike maka ai kekahi i ke ʻano ʻiʻo o kekahi kanaka, kekahi wahi a me kekahi mea ʻē aʻe paha.
