I am no fan of ESPN but their reporter asked a legitimate question and Saban behaved like an absolute jerk. I hear he called her to apologize later, which was the correct move.

ESPN radio is making it a priority to keep airing Paul Finebaum calling Saban a Bully, Arrogant, and Classless.

Not the first time an Alabama coaching legend went off on a sideline reporter in regards to quarterback controversy.

Ken Coley or Walter Lewis?

Their reporter asked the question after the game, after ESPN had played the idea all day, all through the game. I'm certain Saban knew how "legitimate" the question was.

This was so dumb. The press has been trying to create controversy since January between Tagovailoa and Hurts. I am sure Saban is sick of them trying to create a wedge between the two QBs. Personally, I don't think Saban was a dick about, he just won 51-14 and instead of talking about the beatdown, its all about Hurts and Tagovailoa

ESPN needs to move on to something more important like stopping letting Urban Meyer get away with deleting text messages a year old and claiming 'memory loss'.

I get Saban's point of being frustrated being asked the same question over and over with the intent of trying to expose a controversy. But isn't it just as easy to say "Asked and answered" or something to that effect? His reaction got the news coverage that they were seeking. grrr
