Alabama's Jonathan Allen took to Twitter soon after helping the top-ranked Crimson Tide beat Washington 24-7, insisting he didn't say the Huskies were soft. ESPN's Brett McMurphy fired back on social media, directing a tweet at Allen to inform him of what he said.
To all the reports saying I called Washington soft that is not true I never said that, at Alabama were taught to win and lose with class

Your exact quote was: “They were soft. No disrespect, but we could have played better" https://t.co/UqT6hZV7pA
