It all started when Mathieu took to his Twitter page and tweeted, “try throwing a corner route or a cross country on me this year!!! i’ll be waiting!!”. That prompted McCarron to take to his Twitter page and tweet, “U can talk ab stopping something.. But actions speak louder than words. Remember that. #neworleans #14″.
And from there, it was on.
Mathieu then begins to respond directly to McCarron:
Mathieu: @10AJMcCarron you have 1,THE school has 14! you play your part well thanks to great coaching! but anyways we’ll talk nov 3rd!
McCarron: @TM7_Era Ur right the TEAM.. That’s how we play as a TEAM.. We stick together through our losses and wins. #thatswhatmakesusgreat #wehave14
From there McCarron gets Alabama receiver Kenny Bell involved:
McCarron: @TheKennyBell7 I guess we will have to match up the real 7 with theirs. I’m taking our number all day
Which Mathieu responds by saying:
highly favored in DEATH VALLEY!
From there the two Alabama players cease conversation with Mathieu and chose to look forward to November 3rd.
McCarron: “Bama fans don’t talk anymore ab it. Let’s just sit back quietly and wait our turn. Y’all know the date. It’s comin. #november3rd #bamanation”
Kenny Bell: “s/0 honey badger for getting me amp bout da season #turnup”
