An interesting video surfaced late Sunday of events that transpired near Arkansas' sideline during the second quarter of Alabama's 27-14 win over the Razorbacks on Saturday night.
The video, posted to the Twitter account of Anthony Jacks, an assistant coach at Pelham High School in Alabama, shows Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema stepping between Arkansas defensive lineman JaMichael Winston and Alabama offensive lineman Cam Robinson after the end of a play.
Bielema apparently reacts to Robinson, who on the video shoves Winston at the play's conclusion. Robinson backs away from Bielema, who moves toward Robinson, extends his arm then flails his arms and backs away, almost as if he was shoved, while Robinson walks away. The line judge, who was standing behind Bielema, then throws a flag, which sends Bielema into a celebration.
Robinson was given a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty at the end of the play, an interception of Jake Coker by Arkansas defensive back Santos Ramirez. The 15-yard penalty gave the Razorbacks the ball at the Alabama 12, a drive the Hogs eventually scored a touchdown on to take a 7-3 lead.
The pertinent question: Did Bielema instigate the flag by flopping? We've reached out to Arkansas for a response.
