Brace yourself Alabama fans. Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback AJ McCarron just told the media that he was never an Alabama fan and that he doesn’t know anything about Bear Bryant. To some Alabama fans, this is pure blasphemy. To others, this is no big deal and it was just a guy that was before his time. I’d expect this quote to get blown out of proportion by some and understood by others. Bear Bryant was a legendary coach at Alabama and reporters are already asking Nick Saban if he considers himself to be as good as Bear Bryant.
From reporter Izzy Gould:
AJ McCarron on Bear Bryant: “I was never an Alabama fan. I don’t know the history, at all.”
AJ McCarron has already won a national championship for the Alabama Crimson Tide under head coach Nick Saban. They look to take on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish on January 7th for a a possible 3rd BCS National Championship.
