At halftime Saban told CBS reporter Jamie Erdahl that Waddle wasn’t “supposed to bring a ball out when you’re that deep in the end zone but he’s a great player so you have to let him use his judgment.”

Saban was immediately blasted by college football fans who felt Saban was blaming Waddle for getting injured.
I respect Saban but this is a pretty shitty thing to say about a kid whose season was just ended with a terrible injury. pic.twitter.com/zufr7xj0zM

Leave it Nick Saban to trash his player's decision making as he's sitting in a hospital room with a broken ankle.

Nick Saban just blamed Waddle for his injury own. I hope recruits take note . You Shyt to Saban once you can’t play.
“Not supposed to bring a ball out …that far in the end zone”
Saban is heartless!

Maybe I’m just not hearing this rt, but is Saban blaming Waddle for his own injury? If so, what a douche bag. The kids college career is over and he is talking shit. If he would’ve housed it and then got hurt, what u got to say then #NicktheDick https://t.co/4x2gjmbV1z
