#ThrowbackThursday – Jan. 24

Back in 2009, AJ McCarron was rated the No. 4 QB in the ESPN 150, behind Matt Barkley, Garrett Gilbert and Aaron Murray. Fast forward to 2013, and McCarron boasts something neither of his higher-ranked peers can claim: a BCS Championship ring. Well, three to be exact.

As part of #ThrowbackThursday, we're showing the Crimson Tide junior and the starter on Bama's back-to-back championship squads some love on our social pages. Join in by retweeting our Elite 11 pic of McCarron on Twitter or by voting for him in our Class of 2009 poll on Facebook.
