In all the publications I have read, all the newspaper articles that have been written and all the television and radio conversations that have been had this college football season, I have seldom not once heard anything about AJ McCarron being added to the list of Heisman hopefuls.Shame on the establishment.When it comes to great Alabama quarterbacks, I know you may have to dig a little deep into the memory bank to find Ken Stabler or Richard Todd or the beloved Joe Willie Namath.But on a team that has won two national titles and three of the last four, how can you argue with the idea that McCarron has something special that not many have in this game?He isn’t the gunslinger we want him to be at 6’4” and 214 pounds. He isn’t the media circus that Johnny Manziel is or the complete player NFL scouts hope Marcus Mariota and Teddy Bridgewater is. And no, he is not Mike Shula or Jay Barker, two solid quarterbacks for the school who never made it in the NFL and were never going to.What M...

Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron wore a special bow tie in honor of a friend with lung cancer prior to the Crimson Tide's game against LSU.
After the Alabama Crimson Tide beat the LSU Tigers, Nick Saban jumped into the arms of senior quarterback A.J. McCarron. Coach and player shared a hug.
Comparing quarterbacks is always tricky.
Is Jameis Winston better than Marcus Mariota?
Are either or both better than Johnny Manziel?
Those questions are fun to debate but impossible to answer. Even with every measurable statistic being calculated and studied like the national security data, the yardages, completions, touchdowns and quarterback ratings don't quantify which...
Near the end of the LSU-Alabama game on CBS, we had our first cutaway of Katherine Webb, who as we all know by now, is the girlfriend of Crimson Tide quarterback A.J. McCarron. And while Verne Lundquist did mention her sitting next to McCarron's mother, Dee Dee Bonner, he chose not to gush over Webb as his former colleague Brent Musburger did earlier this year.
It's been close to a year since Brent Musburger uttered those now infamous about Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron's girlfriend, the lovely Miss Katherine Webb, and the memory of them does not appear to be going away anytime soon.
During the Saturday night broadcast of the Alabama/LSU game the camera eventually found Webb with A.J.'s mom in the stands. Much like the...
Alabama coach Nick Saban almost never shows emotion. But after the Tide’s big 38-17 win over LSU tonight, he apparently couldn’t hold back his joy. In a move very unlike anything we’ve ever seen before from the Alabama coach, Saban jumped into quarterback A.J. McCarron’s arms right as the buzzer sounded.
Saban went on to call McCarron “the best quarterback in the country”...
Zach Mettenberger and AJ McCarron typically only run as a last resort and much prefer throwing passes the old-fashioned way.
From the pocket. After calling the play in a huddle.
No. 1 Alabama's McCarron and No. 10 LSU's Mettenberger are the increasingly rare pure drop-back passers these days in the Southeastern Conference, which doesn't make their matchup in Saturday...
Bwahahahaha! This is epically funny.
Late Saturday evening during the tail end of the LSU/Alabama game, the CBS TV crew decided to take a sideline cutaway shot of AJ McCarron's semi-famous girlfriend Katherine Webb.
And briefly, analyst Gary Danielson and play-by-play guy Verne Lundquist talked about her. The conversation was based around whether or...
We’ve got a dandy going in Tuscaloosa tonight. After LSU took the lead, 7-3, on a 3-yard touchdown run by Jeremy Hill, Alabama struck back on a 52-yard touchdown pass from A.J. McCarron to O.J. Howard. It’s 10-7 in the second quarter.
TUSCALOOSA, Ala.– Head coach Nick Saban called him the best quarterback in the country, because all he does is win. A.J. McCarron did just that yet again, at #1 Alabama defeated #13 LSU, 38-17. McCarron, with girlfriend Katherine Webb and mother Dee Dee Bonner in attendance threw for 179 yards, on 14-20 attempts, and three […]
The quest for the Heisman Trophy is officially a two-man race.I had hoped AJ McCarron would do something magical Saturday night, have a Heisman moment and jump into the picture for the trophy, but that did not happen. All McCarron did was lead a very good Alabama program over a mismatched LSU team that hung around for 35 minutes in the game Saturday night, then saw the wheels come...
A.J. McCarron hit tight end O.J. Howard to give the Alabama Crimson Tide a 10-3 second-quarter lead over LSU.
It's never easy to figure out who will be the last two teams standing under the current BCS system.
Thankfully, that system goes away soon.
In the meantime, the struggle to define and recognize the actual two best teams continues. And this year, it seems to be taking shape.
Alabama continued their run of staking a claim in the BCS title hunt by easily dispatching LSU...
