FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida –Alabama’s AJ McCarron says Barrett Jones is one of his favorite people, although both have said they can get under each other’s skin.
“You know, Barrett is such a smart guy,” McCarron said, smiling, during Alabama’s BCS media session today. “He talks so much sometimes, so probably what gets under my skin is when I’ve got to tell him to be quiet sometimes in the huddle.
“But probably what gets under his skin so much is when I prove him wrong. He hates to be wrong, so I always love it when I do that.”
McCarron said Jones “taught me the ropes and everything” when McCarron arrived on campus in 2009.
“He’s helped me tremendously,” he said. “I can’t say enough about him. I really do love him. He’s a great friend to have.”
