Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron — maybe now better known as Katherine Webb's boyfriend — is asking critics to show the beleagured Notre Dame player some respect and hold back passing judgement until all of the facts of the bizarre story are in.
Via twitter, McCarron — who led his Crimson Tide team to a 42-14 rout over Te'o's team in the BCS Championship Game — showed compassion towards the troubled linebacker.
I think we should give manti sum respect & don't judge bc we don't know what all is going on. It could be deeper than told. Praying for him!— AJ McCarron (@10AJMcCarron) January 17, 2013
McCarron's simple tweet just goes to show that football connections go beyond teammates and he has lot of respect for his on-the-field rival.
