KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee defensive end Darrington Sentimore says he still has plenty of friends at Alabama, where he began his college career.

He apparently doesn't include Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban among them.

Sentimore says he will enter Saturday's game against the top-ranked Tide with extra motivation "because I want to beat Saban."

Although Sentimore says he likes Saban, but added he "kind of regretted" his decision to sign with Alabama because of his personality clash with the Tide coach.

Sentimore played sparingly for Alabama in 2010, but he was suspended indefinitely in June 2011 for a violation of team rules. Sentimore spent last season at Gulf Coast (Miss.) Community College before signing with Tennessee. He has three sacks and four tackles for loss to lead the Volunteers in both categories.
