Former Bama QBs Shockingly Call Out Nick Saban for Communication Issues

  Former Bama QBs Shockingly Call Out Nick Saban for Communication Issues ​There's no doubt that Alabama head coach Nick Saban is one of the top coaches in the NCAA, but sometimes his communication methods can confuse and anger some of his players. Last season, the Crimson Tide held three quarterbacks in Jalen Hurts, Blake Barnett and Cooper Bateman. All three were told they would have some sort of role on the offense and would be playing.

Saban made it clear he recognizes Hurts ' ability to run the ball at any given time, but he also stressed the importance of being multi-dimensional and We need to learn how to make these plays and he's very capable and he's made great strides in the offseason, and I'm excited for the season that our

"I don't think you ever really know for sure that a guy has that mental makeup until he sort of gets in there under fire, and you see what kind of decisions he's going to make under fire," Saban said.

Praise isn't always easy to come by from the likes of Nick Saban, so Jalen Hurts better start stuffing those feathers in as many hats as possible.

Hurts established himself as one of the brightest stars in last year's freshman class by earning SEC Offensive Player of the Year and SEC Freshman of the Year honors, but, not surprisingly, the accolades weren't enough for Alabama's patriarch Saban to rest on.

  Nick Saban goes on epic rant to the media: ‘Why do we even play?’ Nick Saban is in midseason form.Saban appeared to be frustrated with his team's practice, and when one reporter asked about redshirt sophomore linebacker Christian Miller, Saban felt the need to vent.

Could Alabama stretch the field with its passing game ? Early on, it looked like the team had made significant strides in its downfield air attack. “All of those guys, they are great quarterbacks, we have a great room,” Hurts said. I think Najee (Harris) made a lot of progress this spring," Saban said.

“And on the 10th, [head] coach [Nick] Saban got in touch with me and was like 'OK, this is The big question surrounding Hurts ’ off-season is how he would improve his passing game . “The experience part of it has helped a lot this spring,” Hurts said. “Slowing the game down, seeing things faster.

Instead, Saban set about making sure his quarterback increases his passing ability this offseason in order to compliment his above-average running abilities, and the 65-year-old spoke to ESPN on Saturday about his progress.

"The big goal in the offseason for Jalen was to become a more efficient, effective passer," Saban said. "We didn't ask him to do a whole lot in that area last year because we didn't want to put too much on him … but that was the goal in the offseason."

Saban made it clear he recognizes Hurts' ability to run the ball at any given time, but he also stressed the importance of being multi-dimensional and not solely relying on the running element to be successful.

"We have to be able to create balance and make explosive plays in the passing game … We need to learn how to make these plays and he's very capable and he's made great strides in the offseason, and I'm excited for the season that our offense can have because of his leadership, as well as his improvement as a passer."
