McCarron, Mathieu Bring Rivalry to Twitter
It looks like the Alabama-LSU rivalry is heating up in June.
Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron and LSU defensive back Tyrann Mathieu had a spat Monday on Twitter. Check the back and forth between the two below, and thanks to Rant Sports for proving a roundup of the tweets.
McCarron: “U can talk ab stopping something.. But actions speak louder than words. Remember that. #neworleans #14”
Mathieu: “@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: “@TM7_Era Ur right the TEAM.. That’s how we play as a TEAM.. We stick together through our losses and wins. #thatswhatmakesusgreat #wehave14”
Mathieu: “@10AJMcCarron you have 1,THE school has 14! you play your part well thanks to great coaching! but anyways we’ll talk nov 3rd!”
Mathieu, who also was in the news Monday for his new “King” tattoo, deleted his tweets at McCarron - while the Alabama quarterback left his up.
We like the exchange between the two; nothing nasty was said - it was just two rivals engaging in some smack talk. We already can’t wait for the teams that played for the BCS national title to have their rematch this fall, even if it’s just under five months away.
