ESPN on Rolando McClain's return to Tuscaloosa

Rolando McClain's self-imposed exile

Great article on McClain's new life in Tuscaloosa, and it contains this gem:

His problems followed him to Tuscaloosa. In practice early in his freshman year, McClain -- already starting at middle linebacker -- got upset that a defensive scheme asked him to cover two gaps. So he changed it, and as he tells it now on the dock, head coach Nick Saban exploded. "What the f---?" Saban screamed, throwing his hat. "Who the f--- do you think you are?"

"Why don't you shut the f--- up?" McClain fired back. "I fixed the problem."

They shouted back and forth, and Saban benched McClain for five games. At first, McClain pouted. Then he came to appreciate Saban standing up to him.

Saban makes NFL players cry in practice and a FRESHMAN tells him to STFU? I'm not sure if he was brave or just stupid! Maybe a little of both?
