Video: McCarron & Jones Get Into It During National Championship

(WSCR) Even as they were on their way to a national title, there was trouble in paradise for the Crimson Tide.

With seven minutes to play in Monday's National Championship game and the Crimson Tide holding onto a comfortable, 42-14 lead, Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron and center Barrett Jones seemingly had a miscommunication that led to a slight altercation.

As McCarron called for the snap, Jones hesitated while pointing out a defensive scheme. McCarron was forced to burn a time out and proceed to berate his center on national television.

Jones, unhappy with the way he was treated, shoved McCarron back.

Check out the altercation below.

Also, check out McCarron's explanation.
