Nick Saban's Daughter Kristen Calls “BS on the COVID Cases,” Thinks Ohio State Trying To Give Justin Fields Time To Heal

Nick Saban's daughter has some thoughts.

Kristen Saban Setas, one of the the Alabama head coach's two children, saw the circulating reports of positive COVID-19 cases at Ohio State threatening to postpone the national championship game on Tuesday and decided to go on the offensive.

"If you’re not confident to play then SAY IT," she wrote. "I call BS on the COVID cases. They’re just worried about their QB and want him to have more time to heal. If he’s hurt put in your backup. You didn’t see us postpone the rest of the season to wait for Waddle. BYE."

BYE, indeed – to the tweet, at least. Within less than 10 minutes, it was deleted from her account.

However, because the internet is forever, you can see the tweet above.

Cardale Jones, who famously beat Alabama as a backup quarterback when the Buckeyes and Crimson Tide previously met in the College Football Playoff, took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the tweet:

She followed up her original tweet with a second tweet: “Oops, did I say something you didn’t like that you would say if it were turned around on us?” accompanied by a GIF of Britney Spears covering her mouth with a surprised look on her face. That, too, was deleted within minutes.

After briefly deactivating her Twitter account, Setas returned with an apology, saying “In no way did I intend to undermine the seriousness of the global pandemic and my heart goes out to those it has affected.”

College football, folks.
