Nick Saban Snaps At Georgia Alum Maria Taylor

Alabama's Nick Saban explains his quarterback decision

Nick Saban is getting sick and exhausted of fielding questions about Alabama's quarterback situation. Hurts was the starter for an 11-1 team that won the Sugar Bowl semifinal against Clemson, and Tagovailoa is the young stud who stepped in after halftime to rally Alabama to a national title win against Georgia.

"I still like both guys", he told Taylor tersely on the ABC broadcast.

Tua Tagovailoa and Jalen Hurts both played Saturday night in the Crimson Tide's 51-14 victory over Louisville, with Tagovailoa under center for the majority of the offensive snaps.

A simple inquiry pertaining to what questions were answered regarding the two quarterbacks led to another classic angry, paranoid Saban moment.

Federer, Djokovic headline day two at Flushing Meadows
The 21-year-old has yet to get past the quarter-final of a Slam while his last two visits to NY have seen second-round exits. Wawrinka, the former world No 3, now down at 101, shrugged off having to take a medical time-out early in the third set.

In Taylor's defense, she asked a question that was totally fair, albeit somewhat exhausted.

The Crimson Tide was also penalized for 111 yards, the most in a game since 2016.

Obviously, the quarterback that Saban didn't want to disrespect was Jalen Hurts, the Crimson Tide's starter for the past two seasons who was famously pulled for Tagovailoa in the national championship game previous year. Tagovailoa would return to the game and rush for a 9-yard score later in the quarter.

A frustrated Saban gave a terse response to Taylor during the postgame interview. But right now, it's looking like this season could get even more uncomfortable if Saban refuses to call Tagovailoa his QB1.
