Alabama vs. Louisville score

I think both guys can help our team.

Everything about Alabama's QB situation has been classic Saban.

Hurts played two series in the first half and re-entered the game in the third quarter with the defending national champions up 41-7. 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".

"Everyone had questions about who was going to start at quarterback when this game started", Taylor said. Taylor also diplomatically tweeted after the game.

Demoting a player who was 27-2 as the Crimson Tide's starting quarterback is obviously a tense situation, and one that has led to plenty of transfer rumors around Hurts.

Chelsea Manning cleared to visit New Zealand
Woodhouse said if Manning's application had come across his desk as immigration minister he would have declined it. The group called on Manning's supporters to lobby new Immigration Minister David Coleman to grant her entry.

Louisville is replacing a Heisman Trophy victor Lamar Jackson, while Alabama has two elite quarterbacks who have been competing for the starting job since Tua Tagovailoa replaced Jalen Hurts in the national championship game against Georgia and led the Tide to a comeback overtime win. After deciding to go into the game giving both of his quarterbacks a chance to play and seeing one clearly have a bigger night, cranky Nick Saban made it perfectly clear he doesn't want to talk about who will be Alabama's quarterback moving forward.

The last we saw these Crimson Tide, Tua Tagovailoa used his electrifying, unorthodox style to team with a group of young, athletic wide receivers to lead an astonishing comeback past Georgia to win the national championship.

Tagovailoa was sacked on the game's second play, but pretty much had his way against the Louisville defense from there. Tagovailoa called his own number with 4:04 left in the first quarter on a 9-yard touchdown run to take a two-score lead. The sophomore was 12-of-16 for 227 yards and two touchdowns through the air and posted 26 rushing yards with a touchdown on the ground.

Saban provided a very Saban-esque response by getting chippy with Taylor right off the bat.
