Considering that Monday night’s college national championship game between Alabama and Notre Dame was dominated by Alabama, there weren’t many competitive highlights (‘Bama won 42-14). So easily the talk of the night has become the way ESPN announcers Brent Musburger and Kirk Herbstreit fawned over the stunning girlfriend of Alabama’s quarterback AJ McCarron.
See, McCarron is dating current Miss Alabama USA Katherine Webb:
As you can imagine, Webb was a spectator at the game and the cameras regularly found her in the crowd. And upon doing so the first time, Musburger and Herbstreit couldn’t contain themselves.
“You quarterbacks, you get all the good-looking women,” Musburger said, directing the comment at Herbstreit who is a former quarterback himself. “What a beautiful woman.”
“Wow! AJ’s doing some things right–” Herbstreit responded.
“Whoa,” Musburger interrupted, nearly breathless. “If you’re a youngster in Alabama, start gettin’ the football out and throw it around the backyard with pop.”
“My phone is dead,” she explained, a result of the constant messages because of the attention. “My followers went from 2,300 this morning to 96,000 by the end of the night. I don’t know if I should even check now, I don’t know what is going on.”
“I guess [Musburger] said something but I don’t know what it was because I haven’t seen it.”
She would later garner over 100,000 followers. She has over 116,000 as of this writing.
