Alabama coach Nick Saban does not like quarterback questions one bit. He made that clear when speaking to reporters on Wednesday about the Crimson Tide's game against Colorado State on Saturday. When asked by a reporter about playing time for true freshman Tua Tagovailoa -- who excelled in limited time against Fresno State with 64 yards and a touchdown -- Saban initially didn't say much. "I wouldn't tell you if I did," Saban told reporters, via Al.com. "So I don't mind you asking the question. But I don't need to answer it." Then Saban launched a rant. "I will call Colorado State and tell them exactly what we want to do as soon as I get out of here," he said. "I know (Colorado State coach) Mike Bobo, his dad lives up by my house at the lake (in Georgia). So, I'll just call him up and tell him who we're playing, when, how long, when we're putting them in, tell them the whole thing. All right? Is that all right with you? So you can call him and find out." Tagovailoa has been an added weapon, although starter Jalen Hurts is the clear-cut top QB. Hurts, a Heisman candidate, was named the SEC offensive player of the year as a freshman and has blossomed even more as a sophomore. Through two games, the dual-threat QB has done about as much damage on the ground (209 yards, two TDs) as he has in the air (224 yards, two TDs, no interceptions).
