I didn't like the shove, but I didn't like AJ yelling down a fifth year senior who has protected his backside. All in all, that was the ultra competitiveness and desire for perfection from this program, and more precise, two brothers squabbling.
Saw this on Facebook by an Auburn fan that had a meltdown the entire day yesterday and it's continued today...
Would like to tell the person that is the difference in Alabama and other schools. With the score 42-14, AJ wants to properly execute the play.Best imitation of a three-year-old that I've ever seen from a college football player. I hope AJ didn't soil his panties during that little _____ fit.

There's nothing to talk about here. They had a disagreement, AJ got in Barrett's face, and Barrett made it clear he wasn't going to tolerate being spoken to that way.
I think they both got their point across.

No wars had ever touched her, and she had lived through three; nothing had disturbed that world of hers, where gentlemen smoked on the porch or in hammocks, where ladies fanned themselves gently and drank cool water." - Jean Louise Finch describing her aunt in 'Go Set a Watchman'
AJ needs to save his temper for the bench. It's one thing to have a heated disagreement, it's another thing to show a guy up in front of all of his team mates, peers, and a national televised audience. I don't know who made the correct call on the field, but AJ has to control himself better that that no matter what the situation was.
I don't think anything of it, me and one of my best friends would dog each other during the course of me pitching and him catching during baseball, I'm sure a lot of teams had a blast at hearing us tell each other off. We spent more time fussing with each other than talking smack to the other side. Just how it is sometimes.
But at the end of the day we were still cracking open beers with no problem
AJ should't have jumped on BL. BJ shouldn't try to override the QB, right or wrong.
The QB has to be the leader in that situation.
It only occurred due to their close relationship.
I like our players fired up for perfection at that point of the game. AJ has come a long way in his leadership roll on offense.
Next year we'll enter the season with the best situation at QB in my adult lifetime. It's gonna be great!
What were the directives from the coaches in this situation regarding changing the blocks and play and who makes the ultimate call? Does anyone here really know?
The existence of God isn't determined in the thoughts of man. God exists, no matter what man thinks.

It reinforced my opinion that AJ needs another year of college. He lost his composure big time and severely rattled probably the most mentally disciplined player on the team. Most men do not take well to having someone violently screaming in their ear. He can never do that in the NFL. AJ is needs another year...........thank God!
