Sorry, I pretty much agree with Saban on this one. Backup QB quits in week 4 and that hurts the team. Imagine Burrow just up and leaving (?!). Blake's dad was very involved and was reportedly giving ultimatums to the staff. Must be fun for a coach with 5 Natty's to have to take the dad of a 5* recruit chirping at him and the staff about his kid not starting (INSERT ANNIE APPLE QUOTE).
Saban should have not said anything publicly though. So I don't agree with that. Not a good look.
