Ex-Alabama QB AJ McCarron sends nice tweet about Mac Jones despite Iron Bowl loss
Former Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron gave current Crimson Tide quarterback Mac Jones some words of encouragement despite a loss to their bitter rivals.
Alabama was on the wrong end of a 48-45 score in this year’s edition of the Iron Bowl. The Tide entered the game ranked No. 5 in the latest College Football Playoff rankings and needing a win to keep their hopes alive for a shot at another national championship. Despite the defeat, McCarron took to social media to tell Jones to “hold his head high.”

McCarron lost to Auburn as a senior in the famous “Kick Six” game, so he has a good idea how Jones might be feeling.
While McCarron was in the mood to offer encouragement, Alabama head coach Nick Saban’s tone after the game was a different one. He accused Auburn’s Gus Malzahn of using an unfair trick to help his team win.
