Nick Saban Apologized To Maria Taylor A Testy Postgame Interview

"I still like both guys. Alright, so why do you continually get me to say something that doesn't respect one of them?" The sophomore was 12-of-16 for 227 yards and two touchdowns through the air and posted 26 rushing yards with a touchdown on the ground.

Tua Tagovailoa started the game over Jalen Hurts and ended up getting the majority of the playing time.

Maybe there will be games down the line that call for Saban to heavily feature Hurts, who was 5-of-9 for 70 passing yards on Saturday.

Saban has been around long enough to know how this works. 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.

The new Apple Watch models will include larger screens that cover almost the entire front of the watch. According to the publication, the company will introduce three new iPhone and the updated Apple Watch.

Saban reportedly felt poorly about how he handled it, too. It likely was nothing personal against Taylor at all and more a built-up frustration with the media as a whole just wanting to know who's going to play the most important position on the field for the defending national champions.

Only in Alabama is a coach this frustrated after winning 51-14.

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