Alabama QB AJ McCarron officially cheering for Auburn


If it weren’t for Auburn, Alabama and quarterback A.J. McCarron could be playing in the BCS National Championship game tonight. Instead they lost to Auburn in the Iron Bowl and now they’re in the National Championship game.

Despite all that, and a while of hinting, McCarron has made it official and announced he is cheering for Auburn to win the National Championship. Some find it shocking considering that the two are arch-rivals and mortal enemies.

McCarron sees it as SEC against everyone else and more importantly about the state of Alabama.
