The SEC lifers are sure to love this one. Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel and Alabama’s AJ McCarron were on opposite sides of one of the best games of the 2012 college football season, with Manziel’s Aggies knocking off the previously undefeated Crimson Tide in Tuscaloosa. But the season turned out pretty well for both parties, with Manziel going on to take home the Heisman Trophy and McCarron and the Tide recovering to win their third national title in four years, and there seem to be zero hard feelings between the two signal callers. In fact, they’re now pretty good friends. McCarron told USA Today that he and Manziel, who met each other at the Super Bowl in New Orleans, will be embarking on a tropical vacation near the end of May. “We’re either going to Key West or Cancun and will hang out with our other friends,” McCarron said. “Me and him, we don’t ever let that [football talk] bother us. He’s a good friend of mine, and he’s a funny dude.” We’ll see if what is shaping up to be the most high-profile bromance in college sports — as evidenced by the tweets below — will continue to be so friendly in the days leading up to Sept. 14, when Alabama and A&M open conference play with a rematch in College Station.
