Somehow, the Crimson Tide standout wasn’t ejected.Raekwon Davis, a junior All-SEC defensive lineman for Nick Saban’s team, was penalized for some after-the-play misconduct.Raekwon Davis just gave a three-body-punch combination to a Missouri offensive lineman who was sitting on the ground.— Creg Stephenson (@CregStephenson) October 14, 2018ESPN’s replays showed the lineman throwing punches at the Missouri player.Check it out:Raekwon Davis throwing a few blows. #Bama #RollTide#Mizzou #MIZZvsBAMA pic.twitter.com/0ztcSdlfcs— Kyle Walker (@MrKyleWalker) October 14, 2018That…seems like something that should result in an ejection.While this did not earn Davis an ejection tonight, it’s probably something that the SEC will look at during the week. It wouldn’t be surprising to see the league punish Davis for what he was caught doing on video here.Alabama currently leads Missouri, 39-10. The game is on ESPN.

The market has grown in every month of 2019, with 25,862 new models registered in July for use on UK roads as operators were enticed by the range of new models and attractive offers on the market.Growth in July was driven by demand for medium vans, weighing 2.0-2.5 tonnes, and large vans, weighing 2.5-3.5 tonnes, the segments rising 17.2% and 16.9% respectively. Meanwhile pickups, 4x4s and smaller vans weighing less than 2.0 tonnes all saw declines in the month. In the year-to-date the market is up 9.0% and SMMT’s latest 2019 forecast has been revised up accordingly, to 363,000 units.1Mike Hawes, SMMT Chief Executive, said,Another month of growth for the new van market is welcome relief for the automotive sector as it faces multiple challenges simultaneously. Buyers continue to be attracted to the latest, cleanest vans which is good news for the manufacturers that have invested significant amounts to create them, but also for the environment and exchequer. Buying cycles do fluctuate, however, and for this performance to continue we need an end to Brexit uncertainty starting with a favourable deal for the industry.
