08:20 AM ET 06.12 | A couple of players proved Monday that, even in the offseason, LSU and Alabama can lock horns. LSU cornerback Tyrann Mathieu (better known to fans as "The Honey Badger") expressed his excitement about the upcoming season on Monday morning by tweeting "try throwing a corner route or a cross country on me this year!!! i'll be waiting!!" In an apparent response to Mathieu's tweet, Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron tweeted moments later "U can talk ab stopping something.. But actions speak louder than words. Remember that. #neworleans #14" The exchange then began to escalate as the two rival players began directing their tweets at each other. (Matheiu's Twitter name is @TM7_Era, McCarron's is @10AJMcCarron).

1-1 in 2011 against each other. Should make for a fun rubber match.

Agreed..I dont understand why they dont reseed once you get to Omaha... doesn't make sense..

I'll take my chances w/ Kent state, but hate to face the winner of Fla USC jr in game #2.

How about the SEC getting 3 in?!? Shoulda been 4.

Where's the Big 12!?!?!

MAC=ACC

Trying to stir the pot....must try harder..

MAC = ACC
Mac > Big 12

You do realize SEC has a chance to win NC in basketball, football and baseball in the same year? You guys better start thinking about a way to change the playoffs to keep SEC out of basketball and baseball championships, too......

Nope, the SEC hoops/humbabe teams EARNED it on the court/field of play without the help of a popularity poll. Big difference IMHO.
