Nick Saban is not, REPEATING, is not going to allow the media to create a perception of his top two quarterbacks. A’ight?
Saban has yet to decide on a starter between AJ McCarron and Phillip Sims.
In order to keep the opinions and perceptions to an absolute minimum, Saban refused to allow scrimmage quarterback statistics available to the media.
Saban said, “I wasn't even gonna give them to you so you didn't have to worry about it. Would you all be happy with that? Because sometimes the guys playing against the two's is a little bit different when playing against the one's and vice versa for everybody out there.”
"So how a guy does relative to his leadership, his command, the opportunities that he had, what receivers he had in there, who he was playing against ... there's so many factors and variables."
"I don't want to make this a public controversy. This is something that we're going to handle internally, we're going to handle it internally with the players. They're doing a great job of handling it and I don't think we need anyone to add to the confusion, of what we're managing relative to those two guys competing for this position, and they're doing a great job of it.”
