Nick Saban Goes OFF On ESPN Reporter About Constant QB Questions

USA Today Sports Images

He focused his fury on ESPN sideline reporter Maria Taylor Saturday night after she had the audacity to bring up the topic.

Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa - the unlikely hero of the Tide's win over rival Georgia in the College Football Playoff National Championship - got the start over junior and former starter Jalen Hurts. Saban said he wouldn't "disrespect" them with an answer.

Saban responded: "I still like both guys". However, Saban apparently issued an apology to Taylor, which felt necessary. The sophomore was 12-of-16 for 227 yards and two touchdowns through the air and posted 26 rushing yards with a touchdown on the ground.

The WTA, the global organising body for women's tennis, said the decision to issue a code violation was not based on a WTA rule. Alize Cornet has won six Women's Tennis Association titles over the course of her career. "Not fair.

Louisville is replacing a Heisman Trophy victor Lamar Jackson, while Alabama has two elite quarterbacks who have been competing for the starting job since Tua Tagovailoa replaced Jalen Hurts in the national championship game against Georgia and led the Tide to a comeback overtime win.

1 Crimson Tide's thrashing of Louisville in Saturday's season opener, Saban was a bit abrasive when Taylor asked a question surrounding the program's quarterback situation. "Both... can create problems for whoever we play". Alright, so why do you continually try to get me to say something that doesn't respect one of them? But right now, it's looking like this season could get even more uncomfortable if Saban refuses to call Tagovailoa his QB1. But he bounded to his feet, and any reasonable argument for him not being the starting quarterback was left in the shadow of the throw he'd just made.
