Alabama running back T.J. Yeldon issued an apology for the unsportsmanlike conduct penalty he received during the Tide’s 49-42 win against Texas A&M.

After scoring a touchdown, Yeldon got up and mocked A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel by doing a “show me the money” finger rub and then a double throat slash.

“I want to apologize to everyone for my selfish actions on Saturday. That is not the way I want to represent myself, my family and our team. That is not the way we do things at Alabama. This is something that I will learn from, and I will use better judgment in the future.”

Manziel made a similar "show me the money" gesture during the Aggies' season-opening win against Rice a couple weeks ago.

Coach Nick Saban was not amused after officials threw the flag and let Yeldon know it on the sidelines and told the media as much after the game.

"That's not us," Saban said Saturday. "That's not our program. That's not what we do."
