Earlier today, Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron tweeted an announcement:
“I’m very pleased to announce that I will be returning for my senior year at bama!” He said. “I want to finish what we started with the 09 class. #RTR.”
While Alabama fans cheered, others seemed to be confused. The general consensus didn’t expect McCarron to entertain going pro after his junior year, despite his solid season.
These tweets sum up the reaction:
What was his alternative? “@alabamaftbl Bama QB AJ McCarron announced he will return for his senior season to play for the Tide in 2013.”

I didn’t realize there was any doubt that McCarron was coming back for his senior season.

Is A.J. McCarron a serious NFL prospect? I guess we’ll find out in 2013.
