Nick Saban Seems Very Annoyed With The Media. Here’s What He Has To Say [VIDEO]
Alabama football coach Nick Saban addressed the media over the weekend, and he didn’t sound very happy.
Everybody following college football right now knows the Crimson Tides’ battle between Tua Tagovailoa and Jalen Hurts is what everybody is talking about. Apparently, Saban really isn’t entertained by all this talk. (RELATED: THE COLLEGE FOOTBALL WORLD SHOULD FEAR WISCONSIN FOR ONE SIMPLE REASON)
Saban told the media, “Now, what you guys are totally fixed on is somebody has to be first team and somebody has to be second team. Tell me why. I’m asking you why. You can’t answer that. Then, why? Now, I’m asking why. Why do you think that way?”
Nothing gets me going like an upset and frustrated Nick Saban. I can just see the anger seething out of him in the video above.
To be fair, his point is pretty valid. There’s no law on the books that says you can’t play two quarterbacks at the college level. Wisconsin ran a marginally successful dual-threat system with Joel Stave and Tanner McEvoy, both of whom are substantially less talented than Tagovailoa and Hurts.
The only thing that doesn’t make sense at all is the fact you generally run a dual system when the quarterbacks are very different. For example at Wisconsin, Stave was a traditional thrower, and McEvoy was a runner. McEvoy would come in to change up the pace. That doesn’t really apply to this situation.
Hurts and Tagovailoa can both run, but Tua is a substantially better thrower. It’s not even close. I say you pick the young gunslinger that won them the title and use Hurts sparingly or in case of an injury.
