AJ McCarron’s mom showing support for Auburn’s Tre Mason

Tre-Mason-AuburnAlabama quarterback AJ McCarron told reporters last week that he will be rooting for Auburn in the BCS National Championship Game. We all understand the rivalry that exists between Alabama and Auburn, but McCarron still wants to see the crystal football trophy remain in in the SEC. McCarron’s mother Dee Dee feels the same way.

Over the weekend, Dee Dee tweeted her support of Auburn running back Tre Mason when she shared a photo of a shirt she said she has purchased and will be wearing on Monday, Jan. 6.

AJ also specifically mentioned Mason, who he became close with during Heisman Trophy weekend in New York City, when asked about his decision to root for the Tigers over Florida State.

“Getting to know his mom and his dad and him, they’re great people,” McCarron said, via AL.com. “Like I said before, I’ll definitely be rooting for him in the national championship game.”

Crimson Tide fans are probably cringing over AJ and Dee pulling for Mason and company, but there’s nothing wrong with respecting the competition. If Alabama can’t win another national championship, they might as well hope they lost to the best.

Auburn RB Tre Mason sends Alabama alum Amanda Dufner an autographed picture


Jason Dufner and his wife Amanda live in a divided household. Jason walked on to the Auburn University golf team, where he began defying the odds en route to becoming one of the best golfers in the world. He is also an avid Auburn football fan. Amanda went to Alabama.

I’m sure Jason has let Amanda hear plenty about the incredible victory Auburn scored over Alabama that paved the way for the Tigers to earn a spot in the BCS National Championship Game. But just in case Amanda needed another reminder, she recently received an autographed photo from Auburn running back Tre Mason.

Mason, a junior who has rushed for 1,621 yards this season, wrote “War Eagle!” on a photo of himself and signed it. It’s unclear if Jason put him up to it, but I wouldn’t doubt it. After all, he probably owed Amanda one after that embarrassing photo she took of him and the PGA Championship trophy.
