TUSCALOOSA -- Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron is the latest Crimson Tide player to make the cover of Sports Illustrated.
Under the headline, the cover asks a simple question: "KING CRIMSON: Is it time to think about AJ McCarron as one of the best ever?"
McCarron has a chance to become the first quarterback in the history of college football to win three national championships.
While his stats won't blow people away, the way he's won as a starter makes the topic very debatable.
This is Alabama's third time being featured on the cover this season. Running back T.J. Yeldon was on the magazine's season preview section, while wide receiver Christion Jones earned the cover following his performance against Virginia Tech. This is the 17th time an Alabama player has graced the cover during Tide coach Nick Saban's tenure.
