Nick Saban lashes out at ESPN reporter for QB question

College Football Highlights: Tua Tagovailoa, No. 1 Alabama roll against Louisville | ESPN

After months of speculation about Alabama's QBs - and months of questions about how Saban would play them - Tua Tagovailoa got the start and threw for 227 yards on 12-of-16 passing with two touchdowns, plus another on the ground.

Saban himself apparently realized he crossed a line, because he called Taylor to apologize last night, as reported by James Miller and confirmed later by ESPN. I'm not going to.

Pakistan rally ends after Dutch lawmaker cancels cartoon contest
Rizvi had planned to stage a sit-in to force Pakistan to sever diplomatic ties with the Netherlands over the contest. Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan said: "They don't understand how much they hurt us when they do such acts".

He completed all four of his passes for 60 yards and a score on the opening drive, and the world saw a new era ushered in for the Crimson Tide quarterback in.

If there was any doubt that the Alabama Crimson Tide would have a National Championship hangover, it was put to rest on the first weekend of the new college football season. Alabama enters the game as heavy favorites so we expect to see both Tagovailoa and Hurts at different points, but the Cardinals are hoping to make this game much closer than the experts have predicted.

Tropical depression no threat to Florida, but rain still in forecast
The National Hurricane Center forecasts it will nearly certainly become a cyclone but will not affect the USVI. A third tropical wave is forecast, by at least one model, to emerge from the African coast around Sept 7 or 8.

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

"Everyone had questions about who was going to start at quarterback when this game started", Taylor said. Could Saban have handled that one better? Asked about what else Saban was focused on after a 51-14 win, Saban vented a little bit more for good measure.
