Saban suspends Devonta Smith for the first half vs. Tennessee

The head man has spoken.

NCAA Football: Alabama at Texas A&M John Glaser-USA TODAY Sports

Devonta Smith was ejected in the second half of Saturday’s game against Texas A&M after an altercation with Aggies’ safety Leon O’Neal, in which O’Neal appeared to throw the first punch. As is often the case, the retaliator was the one who got caught, and Nick Saban wasn’t amused.

This means more playing time for Jaylen Waddle, who had probably hurt O’Neal’s feelings earlier in the game along with his ankles.

No word yet from Jimbo Fisher on what repurcussions his instigating player will face, if any.
