Alabama was leading after the first quarter of the national championship game, but not everybody on the Crimson Tide sideline was pleased during the game’s opening 15 minutes.
Late in the first quarter, there was a replay review, one that lasted not very long and that some Alabama fans likely didn’t view as necessary. That left Tide strength coach Scott Cochran displeased on the sideline, according to ESPN’s Brett McMurphy.
Below are the comments Cochran made toward the officials, during the later review, as reported by McMurphy:

The Tide led Clemson, 14-0, less than 5 minutes into the second quarter on the strength of a pair of rushing touchdowns by Bo Scarbrough.
