Nick Saban and Paul Finebaum had what was described by some as a "heated" off-camera discussion at SEC Media Days today. 

The Alabama head coach got upset with Finebaum on-air for questioning his handling of the two Crimson Tide players who were arrested (and charges were later dropped) this offseason. Saban said he likely won't be suspending them for a game this season, something Finebaum seemed to have a problem with. 

The conversation continued off-air and was captured by some reporters. 

AL.com's John Talty reported that Saban insinuated to Finebaum that his players were targeted by the Louisiana police because they were Alabama student-athletes in LSU country. 

Finebaum confirmed Saban insinuated this during The Paul Finebaum Show this afternoon. 

Here's video, from Reddit CFB.
