Alabama linebacker Mekhi Brown was fortunate not to be ejected from the game after appearing to throw a punch at a Georgia player, but he may be lucky if Nick Saban even lets him back in the game.
After getting called for an unsportsmanlike penalty at the end of a play (cameras from ESPN’s First-and-10 cam appeared to catch the infraction that could have or should have led to an ejection), Brown appeared to be calmed down on the sideline by Saban and another assistant coach. But as things seemed to settle down, Brown appeared to have some words to say to somebody on the Alabama sideline. It is unclear from the video exactly who he was directing his frustrations at, but he needed to be held back by others on the Alabama sideline.
The tension may be getting to anyone on the Alabama sideline. They are not accustomed to being down 10 points as the game is about to shift to the fourth quarter of the national championship game. It’s been a frustrating evening so far for Alabama, and this proves sometimes the tempers boil over.
