If we’re supposed to have only five guys on the field as coaches, we’re making sure we have five. We’re not doing it the wrong way and we’re having fun doing it.” (You can be the judge on whether that was a subtle jab at Saban and his organization.)Basically, Renfrow appears to be alleging that Alabama has broken NCAA rules at practice.That’s what an Alabama reporter thinks, anyway.“He’s essentially accusing Alabama of breaking NCAA rules on a daily basis at practice,” Aaron Suttles tweeted.He’s essentially accusing Alabama of breaking NCAA rules on a daily basis at practice. https://t.co/XCs9e1Lfw1— Aaron Suttles (@AaronSuttles) January 10, 2019The Alabama-Clemson rivalry isn’t going away anytime soon.
