A Very Salty Nick Saban is Already Tired of Quarterback Questions

A Very Salty Nick Saban is Already Tired of Quarterback Questions

Saban indicated that the QB taking the first snap would be a game-time decision.

Saban may want to convince everyone that both Jalen Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa have roles on the team, and that's fine.

I think both guys can help our team, all right?

Saban was not in much mood for discussion afterwards, asking ESPN sideline reporter Maria Taylor "Why do you continually ask me to say something that is going to disrespect one of them?"

"I still like both guys". I'm not going to.

In Taylor's defense, she asked a question that was totally fair, albeit somewhat exhausted. Saban hadn't officially named a starter entering the season and has yet to publicly determine who his starting quarterback will be in future contests.

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

Now, to be fair to Saban, it is perfectly fair to avoid belittling his players in front of the cameras, even if Hurts wasn't happy with how he was treated by Saban's coaching staff over the offseason. 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.
