When Alabama lost to Auburn Saturday, the Crimson Tide’s first loss of the season, the general consensus was that not only did Bama lose its chance for a third consecutive national championship, but also that quarterback AJ McCarron may have lost his chance to win the Heisman Trophy. That may or may not be true.
Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback A.J. McCarron has been compared to Tom Brady by at least one NFL scout. His draft stock is currently high among NFL teams.
It’s finally over. All that is left is for some 800 Heisman voters to put their top three choices on a ballot and send it to the Downtown Athletic Club in New York.By this weekend, someone will be declared the Heisman Trophy winner. And best of all, we as fans won’t know the outcome for another week.From September when we thought this would be a race between Teddy Bridgewater...
A.J. McCarron can’t be mad at this comparison.
As the Alabama senior puts the finishing touches on his collegiate career, one AFC college scouting director is ensuring that the two-time national champion’s draft stock skyrockets, comparing McCarron to one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL — Tom Brady.
The scout relayed his assessment to NFL.com’s Albert Breer:
According to Albert Breer of the NFL Network, Alabama QB A.J. McCarron should be in the mix to be the first quarterback in the 2014 NFL Draft.
“Enough people like him to where I think he has a shot to be the first quarterback taken,” Breer tweets.
Breer spoke with an AFC college scouting director who believes McCarron is a solid first-round talent with a chance to be the...
Albert Breer of the NFL Network spoke with one scout who actually compared Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron to Tom Brady.
Assessments of McCarron are all over the map, which is strange for a player with as much film out there in such a strong conference. It might be because many of his strengths aren’t tangible. The aforementioned AFC college...
Takeo Spikes returned home to his alma mater this past weekend to watch his Auburn Tigers pull off a riveting upset over Alabama in the Iron Bowl.While fellow alumnus Willie Anderson stormed the field after the game, Spikes was busy sending a cruel message to AJ McCarron.That message can be seen in the photo above as it shows the former NFL linebacker holding a sign that reads, ...
Kicker Cade Foster has taken the brunt of Alabama’s stunning loss to Auburn.
As people on twitter hurled insults, compiled vulgar messages and made death threats the kicker attempted to hide himself by changing his name and icon.
Foster missed two field goals and had a third one blocked as Alabama lost to Auburn on Saturday. The game was ultimately decided when freshman kicker...
AUBURN, Ala. Move over, Cal, Stanford and the poor, unsuspecting member of the Cardinal marching band who got trampled in the end zone, circa 1982.
This was the single greatest ending to a college football game. Bar none.
On Saturday night, with the SEC West title on the line, along with a berth in next week's conference championship, No. 4 Auburn pulled off a stunning 34...
AJ McCarron continued his assault on the Alabama record book, but some of the accomplishments of the senior Crimson Tide quarterback were not fulfilled in Bama’s 34-28 loss to Auburn in Auburn Saturday night.
After their stunning 34-28 loss at the hands of Auburn, Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron probably quickly realized there’s always Katherine Webb waiting for him on the sidelines. Oh well, on to the next!
Auburn came up clutch with less than a minute to tie Alabama and send the game into overtime. This was all following a 99-yard touchdown pass from A.J. McCarron to Amari Cooper to take the lead; however, this was just the beginning of an instant classic. Alabama lined up for a game winning 56-yard field goal and the kick was short. Chris Davis received the kick and took it 109 (NCAA...
This has been one of the greatest football days of my life.
First Michigan and Ohio State put on an incredible game, then the game the world was waiting for was played in Auburn – and it did NOT disappoint!
Alabama took a seven point lead in the fourth quarter with an incredible 99-yard TD from AJ McCarron to Amani Cooper, but the Tigers came back to tie it again at 28.
Auburn beat Alabama in the most incredible ending to a college football game in recent memory. After the heartbreaker, Alabama’s A.J. McCarron got a smooch from his Auburn-grad girlfriend Katherine Webb. Yup, not feeling bad for McCarron one bit.
Pinned deep in their own territory, the Alabama Crimson Tide decided to roll the dice. AJ McCarron threw this fantastic pass to Amari Cooper after a double-move and Cooper broke a tackle and took it 99-yards to the house. The touchdown gave Alabama a 28-21 lead in the 4th quarter over the Auburn Tigers.
With the ball inside their own 1-yard line in a tied game the Alabama Crimson Tide reacted.
And reacted with a bomb.

AJ McCarron threw a pass to Amari Cooper who took it to the endzone giving the Crimson Tide a 28-21 lead after the extra point.
A.J. McCarron threw a 99-yard touchdown pass to Amari Cooper in the Iron Bowl to put the Alabama Crimson Tide up over the Auburn Tigers.
There was a ton of hype heading in to the Iron Bowl, and so far, I think it’s safe to say that the game has lived up to it. Several minutes into the fourth quarter, Alabama and Auburn were tied 21-21, but AJ McCarron decided that he’d had enough. Alabama backed up on its own 1-yard line, but McCarron found Amari Cooper streaking down the sideline, and the pair connected for a...
99 yard plays are always exciting.
99 yard plays are even more exciting when Auburn and Alabama are playing.
In a game that features First ranked Alabama and fourth ranked Auburn, it’s been a close game. Into the 4th quarter the score was 21-21, and AJ McCarron was backed up on his own one-yard line.
McCarron took the snap and went about nine yards deep in his own endzone before...
Katherine Webb, the beauty queen/model girlfriend of Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron, announced prior to Saturday’s huge Iron Bowl game between the Crimson Tide and Auburn Tigers that she will be rooting for Bama despite being an Auburn grad. A few hours before the game, Webb tweeted “RTR,” which stands for “Roll Tide Roll.” RTR — […]
November 16, 2013 – Georgia vs. Auburn – It was the catch deemed a “miracle” that reminded me how much I hated Auburn. Maybe because the last time I watched those ugly blue and orange jerseys jovially jumping up and down in victorious delight was 2010 in the game most annoying dubbed, “The Cam-Back”. The game where the Tide, at one point up 21-0, lost at home by one point...
Pitt DL Aaron Donald at ACC Media Days Oregon QB Marcus Mariota, who has had an excellent 2013 season, was left off the finalist lists for the Maxwell and Davey O'Brien awards. Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel and Florida State QB Jameis Winston were both named finalists as expected, but in my opinion, Alabama QB AJ McCarron is the odd inclusion of the award finalists.While McCarron...
You might have to change. I might have to change. We're a fast-twitch culture now, a Twitter-culture, a highlight-culture, a sound-bite culture. Information, opinions and decisions all like fast food.
And AJ McCarron's greatness takes a little time to grasp, appreciate, accept. Are we taking the time? Because Robert Griffin III and Johnny Manziel won the past two Heisman...
