NEW ORLEANS (AP) – Alabama coach Nick Saban changed his mind
about quarterback AJ McCarron’s demeanor after the Tide’s first
game this season against LSU. McCarron says Saban told him to calm down after a victory over Florida, then did an about-face following Alabama’s 9-6 overtime
loss to the Tigers. The sophomore quarterback says he plays better when he’s
emotional. He passed for 199 yards with an interception in the LSU
loss. Now, McCarron is gearing up for an even bigger game: the BCS
title rematch. He said Thursday he actually gets more nervous
playing underdogs who throw out all the stops.
McCarron has been the SEC’s second-most efficient passer, but
his play has been overshadowed by tailback Trent Richardson and the
nation’s top defense. Plus, he has seldom spoken to the media.
