Nick Saban Apologizes To ESPN Reporter Maria Taylor After Game

The Tide coach was testy with ESPN interviewer Maria Taylor after the game when she posed a question about Saban's quarterbacks situation.

But moreover, Taylor's question was in no way a "Gotcha!" attempt to get Saban to denigrate one of his two quarterbacks. The former UGA basketball and volleyball star works as hard as anyone else in the business.

"Both guys are weapons to our team", Saban said during his Thursday night radio show.

"What answers did you have about your quarterbacks after watching them play tonight?" Jalen Hurts, who started most of last season before getting pulled for Tagovailoa in the championship game, also got some time, going 5-for-9 for 70 yards through the air. "Both... can create problems for whoever we play".

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.

"Well, I still like both guys". "Alright, so why do you continue to try and get me to say something that doesn't respect one of them? I'm not going to, so quit askin".

Saban reportedly called Taylor late Saturday night to apologize for the way he snapped.

Earlier Saturday, Saban told ESPN that he plans on using both Hurts and Tagovailoa against Louisville.
