Former Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron might be two years removed from college stardom, but he still hasn’t forgotten what Tennessee coach Butch Jones and his players once called his old team.
On Saturday night, after the Crimson Tide beat Tennessee for the ninth year in a row, McCarron took a second to bask in the win on social media. He also took a shot at the Vols for referring to Alabama as the “red team,” which notably upset McCarron at the time.
“Oh I almost forgot man does it just feel great or what to beat the ORANGE team for 9 straight?? Wonder if we’re still the RED team? #doubtit,” McCarron tweeted.
Like the Crimson Tide’s elephant mascot, McCarron never forgets.
