"I think both guys are good players", he said. The final numbers for Tagovailoa, who played only one series in the second half: 12 of 16 for 227 yards and two touchdowns. I'm not going to. In between, Tagovailoa had a 9-yard scoring run and fellow sophomore Najee Harris scored on a 1-yard run.
"Excellent colleague @MariaTaylor7 asked a fair QB question of Saban - which he must have misinterpreted - and he blew his stack".
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. Of course, most of us could see this coming with talented quarterbacks Jalen Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa returning, but there were still questions as to who would be the starter.
Russia's economy ministry: United States companies not to allow Trump to exit WTO
President Donald Trump has threatened to pull the United States out of the World Trade Organisation if it does not " shape up ". The WTO was created in 1994 as part of a US-led effort by major economies to create a forum for resolving trade disputes.
Saban has been around long enough to know how this works.
Saban was not in much mood for discussion afterwards, asking ESPN sideline reporter Maria Taylor "Why do you continually ask me to say something that is going to disrespect one of them?" Could Saban have handled that one better? Asked about what else Saban was focused on after a 51-14 win, Saban vented a little bit more for good measure. "What answers did you have about your quarterbacks after watching both of them play tonight?"
