Nick Saban's bark doesn't scare Maria Taylor: ESPN reporter responds following Saban's heated response
Nick Saban wasn’t happy following Alabama’s 51-14 win over Louisville. In fact, he was rather angry and “pissed,” he said during his press conference.
Before Saban could speak with the media, he spoke to ESPN’s Maria Taylor on the field following the blowout win. And he laid into her after a QB question.
Taylor asked Saban, “Everyone had questions about who was going to start at QB when this game started, what answers did you have about your QBs after watching both of them play tonight?”
That question set Saban off.
“Well, I still like both guys,” Saban said. “I think both guys are good players. I think both guys can help our team. So, why do you continually try to get me to say something that doesn’t respect one of them? I’m not going to! So quit asking!”

Following the exchange, Taylor took to Twitter to express she was only doing her job.
Don’t mind me…Just doing my job. On to the next game. See you at @VT_Football at @FSUFootball
