The College Football Playoff Championship game is reportedly in danger of being played due to what Ohio State says is COVID-19 issues within the program.
But at least one person tied to the Alabama program isn’t buying it. And it’s none other than Nick Saban’s daughter, Kristen, who tweeted out Tuesday afternoon, “If you’re not confident to play then SAY IT. 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.”
The tweet has since been deleted, but we got the screenshot here.
Ohio State beat Clemson in the College Football Playoff semifinal, but its star quarterback Justin Fields injured himself in the game. But head coach Ryan Day has said that Fields would play in the game on Monday.
So as of now, the Buckeyes will face Alabama in the national championship game in Miami next Monday, January 11th. But if the game were to be postponed, it would be played on Monday, January 18th.
UPDATE: Kristen Saban temporarily deactivated her account and then issued an apology on Twitter, saying in part, “I made a huge mistake, and I apologize.”
