Listen, Alabama isn't at or near the top of the college football world every year without Nick Saban being an absolute stickler for detail and execution.

Saban is good for a sideline blowout or two at least every season. Tonight, he had a vintage one during another blowout win, this time over Arkansas.

Up 48-0 in the second half, Saban was unhappy with an offsides penalty his team committed. He let his guys know about it too.

Saban's disappointment here aside, Alabama is rolling tonight. The Tide are about to move to 8-0 on the season.

They will be idle next weekend, setting the stage for a battle of unbeatens in two weeks. The top-ranked Crimson Tide will host No. 2 LSU on November 9.

The winner of that game will have the inside track to the SEC title and the College Football Playoff.

Nick Saban will have even less tolerance for mistakes during that game.
