Nick Saban Snaps On ESPN Reporter Over Question About Alabama QB Situation

Ohio State RB

Alabama head coach Nick Saban has been criticized pretty harshly today for how he handled his post-game interview with ESPN reporter Maria Taylor following the Crimson Tide's blowout win over Louisville in Orlando. Saban indicated that the QB taking the first snap would be a game-time decision.

Maria's ESPN colleague Chris Fowler blasted Saban's hostility, speculating that Saban's "unwarranted" response was the result of him misunderstanding a question that seemed created to give him some wiggle room around naming a starter.

"Well, I still like both guys".

The Ayatollah also said Iran could terminate the 2015 nuclear deal ahead of the impending oil embargo from the U.S. Lawmakers dissatisfied with the president's replies voted to reject four out of five of them.

"Well, I still like both guys", Saban said. "So why do you continually try to get me to say something that doesn't respect one of 'em?" But jumping down Taylor's throat for asking a question is unnecessary and overboard.

Saban was unhappy with the way his team performed during the game and said as much during his postgame remarks to the media. Tagovailoa started and most would expect him to continue starting. Coaches will always have their trained eye on some details that may be overlooked by the common viewer, but it was clear which quarterback had the better game on Saturday night, and that was Tagovailoa.

Tua Tagovailoa completed 12-of-16 pass attempts for 227 yards and two touchdowns.
