Nick Saban upset with ESPN reporter over interview question

Nick Saban upset with ESPN reporter over interview question

But jumping down Taylor's throat for asking a question is unnecessary and overboard.

"I still like both guys. Alright, so why do you continually get me to say something that doesn't respect one of them?"

If you thought Nick Saban would be happy after his Alabama Crimson Tide won their opener 51-14 over Louisville on Saturday, you'd be wrong. "I'm not going to, so quit askin".

He completed all four of his passes for 60 yards and a score on the opening drive, and the world saw a new era ushered in for the Crimson Tide quarterback in.

She ends the statement by pleading with Argento to simply "do the right thing": "Be the person you wish Harvey could have been". The 44-year-old actress also shared the back story of how she introduced Dove to Argento in August, after Bourdain's passing .

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. But right now, it's looking like this season could get even more uncomfortable if Saban refuses to call Tagovailoa his QB1.

Something tells us, however, that isn't the last time Saban will be asked about Alabama's QB situation. 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.

Saban said after Saturday's win he would continue to use both quarterbacks going forward. Could Saban have handled that one better? When a person asks him about the timeshare involving Tua Tagovailoa and Jalen Hurts, the normally mild-mannered Alabama coach turns Hulkish. Saban said he wouldn't "disrespect" them with an answer.
