Watch: Nick Saban Had A Meltdown On The Sideline After Poor Drive

Nick Saban is not happy with the drive that Alabama just put together.

The Crimson Tide avoided near-disaster when Washington failed to recover a Jalen Hurts fumble.

The next play, a 3rd & 20, the freshman quarterback showed his age a bit, and was called for a delay of game penalty. After a Bo Scarbrough run, Alabama was forced to punt for the fifth straight time. Saban was less than pleased with the whole thing.

There was definitely an F-bomb or two in that tirade. Tongue-lashings like that are usually reserved for Lane Kiffin. Things have gone pretty well for Hurts, the first true freshman to start at quarterback for Alabama in a while, this year, but we wouldn't want to be him for the next few minutes. That is one mad legendary coach.

Overall, though, most Alabama fans have to be okay with where things are right now. The Crimson Tide lead the Huskies 17-7, and have totally clamped down on UW's explosive offense after surrendering a touchdown on the opening drive of the game.
