Missouri coach Gary Pinkel made his disapproval known after Alabama’s LaMichael Fanning body slammed running back Russell Hansbrough in the waning moments of Saturday’s game at Faurot Field.

 

Apparently Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban did as well.

According to the Montgomery Advertiser, Saban was angry with the play and called Pinkel to apologize for it Sunday. He told the Tigers’ head coach Fanning would face “internal discipline.”

According to the Columbia Daily Tribune, Gary Pinkel on Monday told the Tiger Quarterback Club the tackle “could have been remarkably serious.” The play came with about 2:20 to go in the game and Alabama up 42-10.

Part of Fanning’s discipline was writing an apology to Pinkel and Hansbrough, which Pinkel said he received at the Quarterback Club.
