Nick Saban’s daughter, Kristen Saban Setas, made some damning accusations about Ohio State on Tuesday, but she quickly walked those comments back.

After reports surfaced that there were COVID issues at Ohio State and the national championship could potentially be pushed back, Saban Setas tweeted that it was “BS” and the team was trying to buy time for injured quarterback Justin Fields to heal.

Saban Setas quickly deleted the tweet and eventually took down her entire account by Wednesday morning, but prior to doing so she issued a lengthy apology on Tuesday night.

“The tweet I posted earlier this evening was uncalled for and hurtful,” she wrote, according to TMZ Sports. “I made a huge mistake and I apologize. In a moment of frustration, I let my anger get the best of me and acted before thinking.

“I sincerely regret my choice of reckless words. In no way did I intend to undermine the seriousness of the global pandemic and my heart goes out to those it has affected. The health and safety of others is first and foremost and I pray that we all can find peace soon. I am ashamed and embarrassed. I hope you can forgive me.”

As of now, the COVID issues are not expected to be serious enough to postpone the game. Of course, with all things COVID, things could change at any given moment.
