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

"I think both guys can help our team, all right?" he said.

In the season debut for the No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide, Tua Tagovailoa gets banged up while throwing an 11-yard touchdown to Jerry Jeudy in the first quarter. "Both... can create problems for whoever we play".

Taylor handled Saban's anger well, saying "I hear you", before moving onto the next question.

Taylor Swift on Aretha Franklin
But Hamilton said being a part of the home-going activities for a star of Franklin's magnitude has been quite different. LaSalle was a Cadillac sub-brand from 1927 through 1940, luxurious but less expensive than the more opulent Cadillacs.

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. I'm not going to. The Hawaii native is best known for his heroics during the national championship game against Georgia when he replaced starter Jalen Hurts in the second half to lead Alabama back from two scores down.

Earlier Saturday, Saban told ESPN that he plans on using both Hurts and Tagovailoa against Louisville. It likely was nothing personal against Taylor at all and more a built-up frustration with the media as a whole just wanting to know who's going to play the most important position on the field for the defending national champions. Asked about what else Saban was focused on after a 51-14 win, Saban vented a little bit more for good measure. That Saban took it that way says a lot about how he analyzes his players; if he didn't care to give a real answer, he could have easily gone with "It's a good problem to have!" or any number of other usual responses.
