she asked what he learned about the two seeing both of them play....fair question imho....he could have given the Kirby "i'll know more when I watch the tape" answer but nope...he was a dick...we all know TUA is the better of thw two but Jalen Hurts is no slouch and everybody is wondering what you do with a guy that has his record and has led the team to post season the past two years...it is an interesting issue and the world wants to know whats going on in his mind...figure out how to skirt questions like this with class....its not going away...or say what Kirby also said....we are going to use the guy we think gives us the best chance to win and that may be situational.....

Drew Bledsoe was benched for Tom Brady. I think the correct decision was made. You always play the best player otherwise it is not a "team" sport.

Saban asked her to please lower her mic the next time she's interviewing him. The almost hit him in the nose.

I’ve listened to his exchange with her three times and I’m still trying to figure out the controversy.

I did not understand the apology. There was no need for it. They just kicked Louisville's butt. What doe the twit ask? Not about the game but to try to open a controversy!

As much as I dislike Saban, he had no reason to apologize. She was trying to start shite between 2 players because the media is famous for starting shite.

Yes he did have to apologize. She asked a simple question. He answered the question then made the remark. Saban isn't above being asked a question

She was doing her job and he was manic and rude as frick, and everyone with a brain and manners knows it.

He apologized because she is a black woman. The potential recruiting backlash was not worth the small knock to his ego.

The only thing that bothers me is that Saban should have known that question was coming and had something prepared that was more appropriate. No need to hasten a heart attack just to prove a point. I think Maria knew she had to ask and that he would be a jerk so she was able to laugh it off.

This outrage is culture is so stupid. It's not like he cursed her out. He just answered a question with some emotion. She didn't deserve an apology, and she probably wasn't even offended. But then she logs onto twitter and sees that everyone is telling her to be offended, and she plays along

Did you see the interview? I kind of understand the point you’re getting at but in this case, the outrage started with Saban. For the question that was asked, he went from zero to next level ballistic right in front of her. It

I saw it and it was borderline abuse. If they were married it would be domestic violence

So they say he did. How about the networks make our lives better and never interview him in the first place
