Is AJ McCarron the next Tyler Bray, at least back tattoo-wise?

Going in to 2011, Alabama will probably be ranked either no.1 or no.2 in the country. This despite having someone other than Greg McElroy as starting quarterback. Instead, Philip Sims and A.J. McCarron will be battling it out to see who gets the nod.

This, however, may have Crimson Tide head football coach Nick Saban a little concerned about McCarron's judgement abilities, which are essential for a modern-day QB - McCarron's alleged back tattoo

Now, there's nothing wrong with getting a tattoo of Jesus (although some backwoods Southern Baptists might disagree with me on that one).  But honestly, there's way too much stuff going on with this tramp stamp. Mentions of 'Bama and family are all crowded into one image, which kind of makes it a mess. Also, it just about does the impossible by making Tennessee star QB Tyler Bray's back tat look respectable.

Mind you, even with the star-spangled trapezoids,  Bray managed to become one of the breakout QB's in the SEC last year. So who knows whether or not lightning will strike twice when it comes to McCarron. On the other hand, 'Bama fans may want to hope that Sims comes on top of the QB battle for now.

Oh wait, didn't a Simms start out as starting QB last year at Tennessee, only to lose the job to Bray? Lightning may indeed strike twice.
