    Alabama defensive end Jonathan Allen says the defense's goal in practice is to get Kiffin in trouble

    Alabama's practices can be the most competitive part of the week, as the undefeated, top-ranked Crimson Tide have rolled through their competition to this point to a 13-0 record and a bid to the College Football Playoff.
    With the nation's top-ranked scoring, total and rushing defense going up against the 13th ranked scoring offense, practices can get a bit heated. Star defensive end Jonathan Allen says the defense takes pride in not only stopping the Tide's offense in practice, but that they actively try to get offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin yelled at by Nick Saban.
    "Coach Kiffin, he gets real competitive so he tries to scheme us a little bit, but feel like we do a good job," Allen said. "As a defense you try to get Coach Saban mad at him and try to get him yelled at in practice."
    How often are the Alabama defenders successful in getting Kiffin yelled at?
    "Oh all the time," Allen said with a smile. "All the time and we love it. I'm sure you guys have seen those on the TV, that's exactly how it is in practice."
    As Saban has so eloquently described, those are not arguments they are "ass-chewings," and the Alabama defense enjoys when they're the reason Kiffin's catching heat from coach.

    Lol this is great.

    I can't hate on Saban or Bama at all. I respect the hell out of what he's doing over there.

    Alabama, where 5 star players meet 5 star coaching.

    Wonder what it is about Kiffin that players don't like about him. I've never met him but the USC players just did not like him at all. I remember about 2 weeks after he beat the Ruins 50-0 a couple of players saying how they just did not like playing for him. I was shocked. They had just beat Oregon and ucla and were a hot team much like this year.

    These 2 players played the same position, played for the same HS, and were drafed in 2nd round.

    I often heard that the players hated Lane but loved Monte.

    -- He's got a weird dry humor
    -- He's boring and a dolt in interviews
    -- He plays unethical sportsmanship games
    -- He's self-absorbed in his own success to the detriment of the team (he plays favorites)
    -- He's a bad communicator and leaves everybody guessing their roles
    -- He's a bad manager of players and time

    Yep, dirty program. Time will bear that out proving an anomaly such as Ellabama in the age limited scholarships and parity has a seedy underside. In due time, in due time.

    Sounds like the defense have no respect for Kiffin. The idea that a bunch of kids try to get a grown man yelled at says they don't even like him.

    On the flip side, I hope we get Tosh to come up and be recruiting coordinator.
