    I think they both got their point across.
    I think this sums up what happened best.

    AJ did invade BJ's space so that's the reason for the shove.

    I also think their relationship that has been spoken of in articles and really a focus leading up to the game was played out for us to see. I think it was Barrett who basically said "That's just how our relationship is, no big deal." Well, the articles were right and all the quotes with examples given by these two about their relationship obviously were very true. They're like brothers. They can go off on each other one minute then give a big ole hug the next. That's closer to how family is than friends. But I'd be willing to bet if anyone else did that to one of them, the other would step in and take up for him. Like the "I can talk bad about him but you dang well better not."

    I think the ref was wanting to throw a flag for unsportsmanlike, but then remembered they were on the same team.

    This is one of those things that is funny when you are up 28 on the #1 team late in the game. It would not have been funny during the last drive in a tie game.

    Jones has two degrees and a 4.0. He also weighs over 300 pounds. I say he was right.

    Re: Who was right, McCarron or Jones?

    AJ should have been kissing one of Barrett's 3 rings (or multiple trophies) for keeping his jersey clean and his knees in tact instead of getting on him. That over-rated nose tackle he battled all night on a gimpy foot earned him a little slack and a lot of respect from everyone--especially his QB. My opinion though. I'm glad they both had the temperment to get over it though.

    As others have said, the "incident" is nothing more than two passionate players wanting to execute to Bama's standard. Even so, I got a chuckle out of AJ's response to a reporter's statement about Barrett claiming he was right. Skip to 3:38 in the video.

    BJ said he was right, post-game. I believe him.

    Re: Who was right, McCarron or Jones?

    I was at the doctors office today & was talking about the game with a Lady seating besides me..She asked me a question I didn't know the answer to..She asked me had they actually gotten more physical with each other & had to be separated by the refs..Could it have drawn a personal foul for unsportsmanlike conduct from the refs..I don't think it could..But..That would've been the least of their worries once they got back to the sideline with Coach Saban waiting..

    Golly gee, ya mean in a game where people are battling it out and multiple injuries occur and 250lb guys running a 4.5 try to hit someone as hard as they can that the big ole meanie 300lb'er shoved his qb and the qb didnt even fall down?
    crime of the century!!!!!

    Quite frankly it kept me from going to sleep by that time in the game.

    Re: Who was right, McCarron or Jones?

    Ok, I've read every post here and watched/listened to almost every interview with both players. I think everyone knows at this point why it happened. My question is did anyone else think what I did. I giggle every time I think about it. To me AJ's fit looked so much like CNS on the sidelines when something goes wrong. When it first happened it looked to me like he gave Barrett a pop on the bottom like coach gave him before. I was in SHOCK.

    I know they are here. You can smell em hanging around the gates, trying to figure out how the latches work! Little do they know, Staci is waiting with a 10KV prod and Earl just hangs em up and skins em. ~ CoastGhost

    I think they should just settle it at Wrestlemania.

    He was red-shirted in 2009.

    Ring maybe, not so much on the trophies--Outland, Rimington, Campbell, multiple All-American selections, All SEC, etc etc
