TUSCALOOSA, Ala. Benardrick McKinney Jersey . -- Nick Saban flung his headset to the ground and stomped onto the field, angrily waving his arms in the air as soon as the final second ticked off the clock.No. 1 Alabama had just completed a 49-30 victory over No. 22 Arkansas on Saturday night in which the defense scored two touchdowns and collected six sacks, but the Crimson Tide coach found plenty to be mad about.An attacking defense that has made a habit of big plays had spent too much time on the field in the second half and given up too many plays to Razorbacks quarterback Austin Allen for Sabans liking.I wasnt happy at all, either, said linebacker Shaun Dion Hamilton, who had a sack and forced fumble. Actually I felt like we almost lost the game. We didnt play well at all on defense. We gave up 30 points.Alabamas challenges get even bigger Saturday when trying to contain No. 9 Tennessee quarterback Joshua Dobbs and tailbacks Alvin Kamara and, if hes healthy, Jalen Hurd in Knoxville.Whatever the lapses that had Saban scowling, first-year defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitts group has been attacking opposing offenses relentlessly.The result has been a defense that has given up some passing yards but leads the nation in run defense and is fifth in sacks per game and fumbles recovered. Alabama has scored nine touchdowns courtesy of defense or special teams; nobody else in the nation has more than four.Tennessee has had trouble holding onto the ball, fumbling 21 times in six games, one more than all of last season. The Volunteers have lost eight of them coming into this game.I think this is the best Alabama team weve faced since weve been here, Tennessee coach Butch Jones said. Its the best secondary of any Alabama team weve faced since weve been here.But the Tides big plays have come from every level of the defense.Ryan Anderson, Jonathan Allen and Tim Williams lead Alabamas pass rushers, but 12 players have sacks.Williams and cornerback Minkah Fitzpatrick both scored on turnovers against the Razorbacks, and `Bama harassed Allen frequently. That part of Alabamas performance, Saban was still pretty happy with two days later.I think there were a lot of other plays that the quarterback was affected on, probably about a dozen, and some of those led to big plays, he said. A couple of our interceptions were because the quarterback was under duress.I think its a team thing, but I do think that we need to be more difficult to score on.Alabama has only twice allowed more than 10 points this season, but both were Southeastern Conference road games -- against Arkansas and Mississippi, a 48-43 win. The Tide scored five touchdowns combined via either defense or special teams.Alabama produced plenty of non-offensive TDs and big plays under former defensive coordinator Kirby Smart, now Georgias head coach. Pruitt certainly hasnt emphasized it any less.One thing I could say he has brought is he is always on us about attacking the ball and getting the ball out, Hamilton said. Weve been doing a good job on turnovers.Game notes Tennessee announced Monday night that defensive tackle Danny OBrien was dismissed from the team for a violation of team rules. ... Tennessee coach Butch Jones says linebacker Jalen Reeves-Maybin is still looking at some different options for what avenues he wants to pursue regarding his recovery from a shoulder injury. The injury has caused Reeves-Maybin to miss the entirety of the Vols last two games and the majority of victories over Ohio and Florida. ... Alabama linebacker Reuben Foster and guard Alphonse Taylor are both recovering from concussions, but Saban doesnt expect them to miss much practice time. ... The lone remaining charge against Tennessee defensive lineman Alexis Johnson stemming from a February arrest was dismissed Monday, according to Knox County Assistant District Attorney General Sean McDermott. When one charge against Johnson was dropped and another reduced to misdemeanor domestic assault in April, an agreement was reached to drop the remaining charge if he avoided trouble for the next six months.---AP Sports Writer Steve Megargee in Knoxville, Tennessee, contributed to this report. Tom Savage Jersey . It just didnt show when he hit the ice. Berra made 42 saves and Kris Russell scored at 1:32 of overtime, lifting the Calgary Flames to a 3-2 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday night. Chris Clark Jersey . LOUIS -- Roman Polak was celebrating even before Alexander Steen scored the winning goal in Saturdays 4-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes. http:///...n-miller-jersey.html .1 million pounds ($61.2 million) on Saturday, giving the beleaguered English Premier League champions a major lift. An alleged rape survivor who visited Baylor football players in July to discuss sexual assault prevention spoke out Friday about an assistant coach who questioned her visit and who she says denied that the football program had anything to do with the schools recent problems addressing sexual assaults.Brenda Tracy, who has said she was gang-raped at Oregon State in 1998, wrote a blog for The Huffington Post on Friday about her experience speaking at Baylor this summer. It was a response to what she said was a series of harassing and offensive social media messages, including death threats, from self-described Baylor fans and supporters.I felt like the players were great. They were all engaged. They were all listening and all paying attention, she told Outside the Lines of her talk July 25 with the Baylor football team. I was really surprised and caught off guard when this coach pulled me aside. I was really surprised that he was that bold to say those things, but he was really awful and terrible.Tracy said the assistant coach grabbed her and ushered her into an office as soon as she started to leave the room. She said she was accompanied by Baylor Title IX coordinator Patty Crawford. Tracy did not name the coach in her Huffington Post blog.One of the first things he says is he didnt understand why I was there, she told OTL. He said this wasnt a football issue. This was an issue on the rest of the campus. And he just went on and on that [former head coach] Art Briles did absolutely nothing and this was all unfounded and nothing happened and they were being treated unfairly and there was some conspiracy going on against Baylor football.Baylor said in a statement Friday evening that it was looking into the conversation between Tracy and the assistant coach.We have great respect for the work Brenda is doing and for her courage in telling her story. Her interaction with the young men on our football team was incredibly positive and we are grateful for her engagement with our university, the statement read.Tracy has been speaking publicly to college football teams across the country since she met with Nebraska coach Mike Riley and his team in June. In 1998, Tracy reported being drugged and raped by four men, including two Oregon State football players, on the schools Corvallis campus. The men were arrested, but Tracy did not press charges.Riley, who was Oregon States coach at the time, suspended the players involved for one game. Tracy, who lives near Portland, Oregon, told her story to a newspaper in 2014. Her summer visit to Nebraska -- where she and Riley made amends -- drew nationwide attention. It also prompted Baylor interim coach Jim Grobe to invite her to speak to his team in Waco. Her visit came on the heels of Briles firing in connection with the Baylor board of regents review of a report detailing the school and athletic departments handling of sexual assault complaints.The findings issued in May from law firm Pepper Hamilton, which also resulted in the ouster of former university president Kenneth Starr and the resignation of athletic director Ian McCaw, described the football program as being above the rules, with no culture of accoountability for misconduct, and that some football coaches and staff abdicated responsibilities under federal gender equity laws. Jeff Allen Jersey. rawford did not immediately return email or phone messages left Friday afternoon by Outside the Lines.Tracy told OTL that she immediately told Baylor associate athletic director Nick Joos about the exchange with the assistant coach, whose name she did not know at the time. She identified him later by looking at photos of the coaching staff online.?OTL reached out to the assistant, who did not return a phone message or email.Tracy said she told Joos, If this was an indication of the rest of the staff, then theyre going to have a problem. He said that he would look into it.Tracy said she felt like she was?going to the principals office when the assistant coach pulled her in. He just didnt understand why I was there talking to them, she told OTL.She said she and Crawford explained how preventing sexual violence is everyones responsibility and that football players are in a position of power on campus to influence other students in patterning good behavior. I was not there to comment about Art Briles, she said.Tracy said she left the office feeling defeated.Im leaving, and this is what these kids are left with? This horrible attitude? That is not conducive to any type of change, she told OTL. If youre not going to acknowledge that anything is wrong, its a problem.Tracys speaking out about her experience with the assistant coach comes shortly after the school received criticism for an incident during Baylors Sept. 16 game at Rice, where former player Shawn Oakman -- who was indicted in July for felony second-degree sexual assault -- was spotted on the sideline walking alongside assistant coach Chris Achuff. Oakman also was present in the locker room with the team. Grobe said he was not aware of Oakmans presence, and the university later issued a statement saying Oakman was banned from all Baylor-owned facilities and locker rooms at future away games.Last Saturday, Starr defended Briles, saying he was unfairly criticized by the media for his handling of allegations of sexual assault against some of his players. During an interview at the Texas Tribune Festival in Austin, Starr said Briles was an honorable man who conducted an honorable program and that a grave injustice was done to him.Tracy said she has received a great deal of backlash after making recent comments in the media about Baylor and Briles.The players have worked hard and they are winning. You cant take that from them. However, there is nothing wrong with expressing compassion for the victims and understanding that winning may be hurtful for them, she wrote in her Huffington Post piece.Yes, there are young men left on the football team and they are suffering. And there are victims who are suffering. Many things can be true at once, she said. [Fans] are so angry about Art Briles being fired that theyre not taking into consideration anything else. I hope the victims are being supported as vehemently as Art Briles is.
