A.J. McCarron and Tyrann Mathieu involved in Twitter squabble

For those who love fireworks between LSU and Alabama but can’t wait for college football season, good news: A.J. McCarron and Tyrann Mathieu both have Twitter accounts and neither had any self-restraint to be afraid to take swipes at the other in 140 characters or less during a brief tiff the two had on Monday.

It started when Mathieu, who was a consensus All-American at cornerback last year, sent out the following chest-puffed-out tweet:

McCarron found out about the tweet and sent out his own message:

Fair point. McCarron threw 23-of-34 for 234 yards as Bama topped LSU in the BCS title game in January while Mathieu later admitted he didn’t play well in either game against the Tide last season.

Things escalated after McCarron’s tweet. Here’s Mathieu’s response, which, like the rest of his tweets directed at the Bama QB, has since been deleted:

@10AJMcCarron everybody have a good game every now and then try having a great season back 2 back 2 BACK! DEFENSE WINS CHAMPIONSHIP NOT YOU

McCarron again:

Mathieu’s reply:

@10AJMcCarron you have 1,THE school has 14! you play your part well thanks to great coaching! but anyways we’ll talk nov 3rd

We’re sure Nick Saban is flattered by that one. Meanwhile, McCarron brought the spat to a close when he sent out this to Tide fans.

Overall, a so-so Twitter battle. But we’ll call this one in Mathieu’s favor for calling McCarron out over the 14-titles reference. Final score: 6-3. Just like an actual LSU-Alabama game.
