Nick Saban Gets Heated With ESPN's Maria Taylor After Question About QBs

Nick Saban apologizes to ESPN host after quarterback tirade

"I still think both guys are good players, I think both guys can help our team".

Tua Tagovailoa started the game over Jalen Hurts and ended up getting the majority of the playing time. Tagovailoa was 12-of-16 through the air for 227 yards and a pair of touchdowns before Hurts got some reps. "Alright, so why do you continually get me to say something that doesn't respect one of them?"

Tua is capable of making plays Hurts can't, but he's also capable of making mistakes Hurts wouldn't, and Saban won't be afraid to go back to Hurts if he feels the need to.

Saban appears to have made amends with Taylor following the awkward moment, and it's a resolution many would agree was necessary. "I'm not going to, so quit asking".

Everything about Alabama's QB situation has been classic Saban. Hurts has been the starter for the last two seasons, but Tagovailoa led Alabama to a victory in the national championship game previous year against Georgia after Hurts was benched.

Taylor was absolutely right to ask the question in her postgame interview on the field, whether Saban likes it or not. Absolutely, but this is just how Saban is. Taylor asked after the top-ranked Tide's 51-14 win in Orlando, Fla. It's Tua Tagovailoa, which isn't a surprise seeing as he started Alabama's win against Louisville in Week 1, but it was still the first start of his collegiate career.
