A humorous moment came from Monday’s news conference when the microphone came to me.
After asking Nick Saban about the confidence AJ McCarron gained from hitting a few down-field passes against Vanderbilt, I received the following response:
“You ought to ask him … when you get a chance. I know I don’t make him available to you, but I’m sure it helped his confidence. But I didn’t ask him, and I really don’t know.”
Since preseason practices opened, McCarron has been made available to reporters three times. Once on media/fan day in early August, after the Penn State game and after the Florida game when most reporters were on deadline and physically unable to be there.

It might not be as noticeable if former quarterback Greg McElroy wasn’t fielding questions twice a week for the past two seasons.
What do you think on the matter?
