AJ McCarron’s girlfriend steals BCS spotlight

While Alabama’s quarterback threw for 254 yards and 4 touchdowns in the national championship game, it was his prowess off the field that caught the attention of ESPN play-by-play announcer Brent Musburger.

Cameras spotted AJ McCarron’s girlfriend, Katherine Webb, in the stands and Musburger, 73, suddenly became smitten.

“You quarterbacks, you get all the good-looking women,” Musburger said. “What a beautiful woman.”

“Wow!” analyst Kirk Herbstreit chimed in.

“If you’re a youngster in Alabama, start getting the football out and throw it around the backyard with Pop,” Musberger added.

Webb, who also happens to be Miss Alabama and a student at Auburn, became a sudden Twitter sensation going from about 530 followers to more than 90,000 followers before Alabama scored its 42nd point.

Among @_KatherineWebb new followers was Arizona Cardinals defensive linemen Darnell Docket, who tweeted his phone number to her.

This morning, Docket sent a tweet that included an image of Webb, McCarron and himself with the words:

Musberger’s comments further the culture which creates situations such as we have in Steubensville, Ohio. Girls are not objects won through football prowess. His comments diminish both men and women.

Beth M, some women are objects won through football prowess, I work security part-time for the Atlanta Falcons and Hawks and you should see the women in the players parking lot after the game!!!!!!! They stand around in short skirts, 6 inch heels and just wait for a player to pick them.

Alright, Beth M., so do you think Miss Alabama would be dating AJ McCarron if he was just an undergrad normal guy at Alabama? Obviously, women are not objects, but if you are the starting QB at Alabama you are basically guaranteed to garner the attention of beautiful women. That is just a given.

Although the Musburger comments fall into the dirty old man category…..they were also a joking shot at Hertstreet, as he was a QB and has a beautiful wife and family.

@ Beth M

Get over yourself. He didn’t say he wanted to score on her. He just said she was pretty. He is right QBs do get all the hot women. OR at least they did, when I was in high school. Why do angry?

I think this is funny everyone is making a big deal about it. How is he dirty b/c he made a correct observaition. He didn’t say anything sexual. If you think that your the one with the dirty mind.

I personally believe that some US Americans are unable to play the football, and those US Americans should be treated the same if not equally to those others who live in places such as the afghanistan where they don’t have footballs.

All the liberal media making an issue of this, yet none of them said a thing when Mr. Hollywood Elitist himself, Hugh Hefner, age about 90, married a 26 yr. old. They are very selective in their hypocrisy!

What Musberger said may not have been the most professional to do. But let’s get real people. I bet virtually everyone of us has wanted to exclaim the same thing when we see someone very attractive. We are human. I feel there is alot of hypocrisy regarding the criticism.

Brent was a AZZ with his comments. Yes she is a beautiful young lady but so are many women. His implication that she is ONLY with AJ because he is a football star was just stupid. Yes Athletes get pretty women so do do Ugly rich guys that don’t play a GAME.
Brent SPORTS are not the ONLY to get a beautiful Lady to Date or Marry a guy.
Education is a better avenue to get money and find a wife. So very few people can be Pro Athletes but EVERYBODY can get educated and open many opportunities to have a happy life with a beautiful Girlfriend/Wife.

I (53 years old) was watching the game with my 23 year old son and a friend (male also 23) and my younger son (15). When the camera shot of the girl came up, we all simultaneously exclaimed “wow”. Brent was just vocalizing what every red blooded American male (those that prefer the female sex) felt.

Beth M needs to give it a rest. What about all the hot women who end up with highly successful non-athletes? Why should an athlete with potential and the culture surrounding their sport be vilified yet “hot women” can chase successful businessmen, lawyers, doctors, or whatever for the same reasons in the name of finding someone who can provide more? No one is forcing these “hot women” to chase higher profile men.

Wow is right. They could have kept the camera on her for my money….. BUT that was sort of embarrassing, from a football game broadcast standpoint. A shot, a mention, even the compliment, fine, then move on.

And I thought they were somewhat disrespectful of McCarron’s mother right there. They almost mentioned her but cut if off to fawn over Miss Webb some more.

Might not be quite as hot as the 25 year old I started with, but is still as much or more of a pain
in the patootey as she ever was.

AJ’s girl is the 2013 version of Sela Ward……… Sela was Big at Bama in her day.

While attending the University of Alabama, Ward dated Bob Baumhower, an All-America defensive tackle for coach Bear Bryant’s football team. Baumhower went on to an All-Pro career with the Miami Dolphins and played in two Super Bowls.

They had to talk about something. They couldn’t talk up Notre Dame like they wanted to without looking like fools.

One thing that I would like to add about last night’s broadcast is that I hope many of the SEC crybaby haters who claim the SEC is full of illterate thugs were watching. They interviewed several Bama players after the game and they were all very thoughtful and well spoken. It was far from the stereotype that many SEC detractors like to perpetuate. I find this often to be the case with interviews of UGA players as well. The haters think that because they are good at football they must be dumb. Its a shameful lie for the most part.

Thanks.

Since Obama is redistributing income to those who aren’t able (or willing) to earn it, isn’t it only fair that he distribute hot women too? If the rich have to share their income, they should also share their babes. It’s the liberal thing to do.

Lets be honest, AJ McCarron is not cute. The only reason they’re together is because he is the starting QB for The University of Alabama. Anybody thinking different is delusional.

It does go both ways. Virtually 100% of very attractive women go for successful WEALTHY men. Especially those who use beauty pageants and the like to flaunt themselves.
