AJ McCarron is proving to his fans how good Nick Saban was at keeping his star quarterback’s mouth in check.
The former Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback already made waves this week by declaring that he thinks college football players should be paid for their services. Now he’s helping further not only his career, but keep a meme going that by all rights should be dead and buried.
While doing press for the NFL Network for the Super Bowl, and raising his own profile prior to the 2014 NFL Draft, McCarron fired a shot across the bow of ABC college football play-by-play man Brent Musburger:

Musberger make waves during Alabama’s domination of Notre Dame in the 2013 BCS Championship game, when he gushed over McCarron’s girlfriend Katherine Webb, whom cameras caught in the stands.
“You quarterbacks, you get all the good looking women,” Musburger, 73, said. “What a beautiful woman.”
To be fair to Musberger, she is good looking, and no doubt the producers were feeding him lines. But we now all have him to thank for bringing it to our attention, and can look forward to footage of her reacting to McCarron’s play on Sundays for the forseeable future.
