Nick Saban Apologized to Maria Taylor for Cranky Interview

College Football Highlights: Tua Tagovailoa, No. 1 Alabama roll against Louisville | ESPN

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

In Taylor's defense, she asked a question that was totally fair, albeit somewhat exhausted. Tagovailoa was 12-of-16 through the air for 227 yards and a pair of touchdowns before Hurts got some reps.

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

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 a year ago. "I'm not going to, so quit asking", Saban said.

As Saban was leaving the field after Alabama's 51-14 win over the Cardinals on Saturday, ESPN's Maria Taylor asked a question about the quarterback competition that clearly frustrated Saban. Tagovailoa would return to the game and rush for a 9-yard score later in the quarter.

Everything about Alabama's QB situation has been classic Saban. Tagovailoa started and most would expect him to continue starting. Absolutely, but this is just how Saban is.

Alabama steamrolled Louisville in Orlando on Saturday night, opening the season with a 51-14 win over the Cardinals and answering an bad lot of questions, including whether they are still deserving of the No. 1 spot in the nation (they are).
