1 Crimson Tide's thrashing of Louisville in Saturday's season opener, Saban was a bit abrasive when Taylor asked a question surrounding the program's quarterback situation.

"I still like both guys". "I think both guys can help our team, all right?" he said. I'm not going to.

The Alabama quarterback controversy has been a topic of debate all summer, and Taylor asked a question related to said topic.

The funeral services for Senator John McCain (R-Ariz) were politically charged from start to finish. Asked if he missed an opportunity to unite the country and made a mistake, Trump disagreed.

Good for Saban. Hopefully he'll handle questions about the quarterback situation better moving forward.

The Crimson Tide was also penalized for 111 yards, the most in a game since 2016.

Now, Nick Saban got heated with Georgia's Maria Taylor for asking a general question.

Kilimnik has been indicted in absentia alongside Manafort on obstruction of justice charges. Mueller and his team have accused Kilimnik of having ties to Russian intelligence.

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. Tagovailoa started and most would expect him to continue starting.

It's apparently an insult to Hurts to say it, but Tagovailoa looked masterful in his first action of the 2018 season. Tagovailoa would return to the game and rush for a 9-yard score later in the quarter. The final numbers for Tagovailoa, who played only one series in the second half: 12 of 16 for 227 yards and two touchdowns.
