Video: Nick Saban chews out Jeremy Pruitt; Pruitt gives it right back
After Alabama took a commanding 35-10 lead over Arkansas with just 1:25 left before halftime, the Razorbacks responded with a 4-play, 79-yard TD drive of their own to go into the break with their heads held higher.
That defensive series drew the ire of Nick Saban, and we all know how that turns out. Just ask offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin.
However, defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt wasn’t as reluctant to let Saban know how he felt.

Like Kiffin, Pruitt has an impressive résumé as an assistant. However, part of the frustration is the fact that Hogs QB Austin Allen threw for 201 yards in the first half against a Crimson Tide defense that’s only allowed 188 per game, which was ranked second in the SEC entering Week 6.
