Alabama defensive back Marlon Humphrey was clearly irritated after his Crimson Tide lost to Clemson 35-31 in the National Championship Game on Monday night.

Report: 'Lots of drama' surrounded Kiffin before he left Bama

  Report: 'Lots of drama' surrounded Kiffin before he left Bama There may well be more than meets the eye going on with regard to Lane Kiffin’s departure at Alabama. The school announced Monday that Kiffin was leaving as offensive coordinator effective immediately to begin focusing on his new head coaching job at Florida Atlantic. It appeared surprising and abrupt at first glance with a title game looming, but a series of reports in the aftermath of that statement indicated that there’s a lot more going on, and it has been building for some time.

Alabama defensive back Marlon Humphrey was clearly irritated after his Crimson Tide lost to Clemson 35-31 in the National Championship Game on Monday night. Bama's Marlon Humphrey called the pick play " somewhat illegal ."

re: Pick plays illegal ?Posted by OliverQueen81 on 1/11/17 at 4:27 pm to OliverQueen81. The only thing I see is where a Alabama defensive player said it was ' somewhat illegal '. If they played off the WR's, then the WR would have to seek out the DB and initiate contact further down field.

In particular, the pick plays Clemson used to score touchdowns did not sit well with the sophomore. Humphrey apparently called the pick play “somewhat illegal” after the game and was bummed to lose that way.

Clemson beat Alabama on a 2-yard touchdown pass from Deshaun Watson to Hunter Renfroe with 1 second left in the game. Renfroe was able to get so wide open in large part because a teammate cleared the space with a blocking type of move on an Alabama defender:

It’s a tough way to lose, but Clemson outplayed Alabama’s defense on the entire final drive. The Tide had plenty of chances to stop the Tigers and didn’t deliver.

Pro-pot group to pass out 4,200 free joints on Inauguration Day

  Pro-pot group to pass out 4,200 free joints on Inauguration Day Any adults in Washington, D.C., looking to get stoned on Inauguration Day should make their way to the west side of Dupont Circle by 8 a.m. The D.C. Cannabis Coalition is pushing for federal legalization of pot, and plan on passing out free joints to the first 4,200 people they meet. Later, the group will march to the National Mall, where 4 minutes and 20 seconds into Donald Trump's speech, they'll light up. "We are going to tell them that if they smoke on federal property, they are risking arrest," Adam Eidinger, founder of the group DCMJ, told WUSA-TV. "But, that's a form of civil disobedience. I think it's a good protest." DCMJ is a group of D.C.

Alabama ’s Tony Brown, who was defending Renfrow, had to run around his teammate and was too late to get to Renfrow. But was it illegal ? The last play was indeed a pick play but there was no pick - DB tried to tackle WR and fell back into Nickel.

So while Alabama players were in their locker rooms searching for answers, it's only natural that Defensive back Marlon Humphrey said Clemson's pick play " somewhat illegal " and said it The last play was indeed a pick play but there was no pick - DB tried to tackle WR and fell back into Nickel.
