Quarterback s heartbreaking reaction to girlfriend becoming online sensation

AJ McCarron was on a high after leading Alabama to a BCS Championship, but was lost for words in a post-game interview upon hearing how popular his girlfriend had become online.

Katherine Webb, an Auburn University graduate, winner of Miss Alabama 2012 and partner of McCarron became an overnight sensation after she was featured in the broadcast of the game.

During shots of Webb watching her beau play in the biggest college football game of the year, excited commentary from caller Brent Musberger forced ESPN to issue an apology yesterday.

"You see that lovely lady there," Musberger started.

"Wow, I'm telling you, you quarterbacks, you get all the good-looking women. What a beautiful woman. Wow! Whoa!"

And it seemed many agreed with Musberger.

Attracting over 20 million viewers in the US every year, Webb's Twitter followers went from a couple of hundred to over 100,000 within a few hours.

In an interview immediately after the game, McCarron was stunned to hear the news and did not believe reporters saying LeBron James, champion basketballer was now following her.

"I'm gonna tweet him. I'm gonna get a follow. That's messed up [sic]" he said.

"She's got more followers than me now".

As of today, Webb has amassed almost 250,000 followers.

    The real story from the college ball final is a young Aussie bloke Jesse Williams played in the game and was a sensation - Lining up next year with an NFL team. Featured during the game??? A cameo in the stand sitting with the QB's mother with some comments by a comentator that were jumped on by the ever weird yanks who can shoot kill and terrorise on TV but can't sa,y WOW Hurley burley what a girly.

    Andy is dead right. Women are only as faithful as their options and as they start earning more than you or having more options, you are GONE!

    My first reaction was "what a douche, be happy for ur gf" but after seeing the video, i guess he didn't want her to become really famous and then dump him or something. Bcos it is an undeniable fact in my opinion that women are attracted to guys who make more than him, and are more famous... lol IN MY OPINION!

    This is not a political Story OMFG!!! Beerwolf and Russell get it , I can't really fault Moggy Don's reply, who helped somebody else that was off topic. LeBron James is a douche, hasn't he got enough women already?? AJ McCarron should kick his butt.

    How come we can make comments on this garbage but not on Political issues? Yahoo, Im talking to you, you obviously read these comments so send me an answer instead of ignoring us all the time. Im not the only one who has this question. You are a rude mob if you ignore this question. Obviously you were never taught any manners when you were a child.
