Nick Saban snaps at reporter over QB question: 'Quit asking'

Tua Tagovailoa Jalen Hurts

Who will play and how much is the question that Saban can not escape; it is the question that hovers over Alabama's entire season.

"I still like both guys", Saban responded. I think both guys are good players.

Saban may want to convince everyone that both Jalen Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa have roles on the team, and that's fine. The timeshare seemingly offered clarity to what's been a polarizing QB debate since last season's College Football Playoff National Championship Game, but that didn't stop ESPN's Maria Taylor from bringing up the topic during a postgame interview with Saban.

Expect Saban to answer this question, however, soon when he decides Tagovailoa is going to be Alabama's starting quarterback.

In Taylor's defense, she asked a question that was totally fair, albeit somewhat exhausted. Taylor also diplomatically tweeted after the game.

Then again, pretty much every other coach in the country "disrespects" one of their top two quarterbacks by making him the back-up. In between, Tagovailoa had a 9-yard scoring run and fellow sophomore Najee Harris scored on a 1-yard run.

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. Saban wasn't thrilled and got unnecessarily angry.
