A.J. McCarron, Barrett Jones Get into Shoving Match During BCS National Championship Game

During Monday night’s BCS National Championship game between Alabama and Notre Dame, A.J. McCarron and Barrett Jones got into something of a confrontation.

Jones is the Crimson tide’s starting center; McCarron is the starting quarterback. They’re roommates and, by all accounts, good friends. At the time of their little squabble, Alabama held a commanding 28-point lead over Notre Dame with seven minutes remaining in the fourth quarter.

Aside from Brent Musburger publicly ogling a girl 634 years his junior, the McCarron-Jones beef was by far the dumbest thing that happened all night.

After the game, Jones downplayed the incident.

"We're both perfectionists. He's an emotional guy. We had a snap count difference," he said (via HuffPo). "I was right. But whatever, it doesn't matter. We love each other and gave each other big hugs. It's just how we are if you don't know us."

For what it’s worth, the greatest team player on the planet endorsed the confrontation.

We just saw why bama will be bcs champs @10ajmccarron and @barrettajones not afraid to confront each other in order to win. #respect
