AJ McCarron is royalty in Alabama, underrated everywhere else

There are the small moments, too, like one after a practice at Bama's indoor facility last month. As -McCarron bent down, multiple teammates tossed footballs at him simultaneously. Everyone laughed. McCarron caught one and held his opposite arm out to ward off the others. And damn if the pose struck by the most popular player in all of Alabama didn't recall the figure of a certain college football trophy.
