Musburger drools, NFL’s Darnell Dockett tweets digits to Ala. quarterback’s girlfriend Katherine Webb; Followers explode; Update: EPSN apologizes

Oh, dear. During last night’s national championship game between Notre Dame and Alabama, ESPN sportscaster Brent Musburger drew attention to Katherine Webb, Miss Alabama and the girlfriend of Alabama’s quarterback.

The pictures above may help explain Musburger’s drooling, heh.

This young fan, captured in photo by a parody account, also seems to be suffering from a bout of puppy love.

This drew the attention of the NFL’s Darnell Dockett.

At least the Arizona Cardinals’ Darnell Dockett didn’t pull a Weiner; no pics accidentally tweeted publicly. Alas, he did tweet out his phone number on his public timeline instead of via direct message. He swiftly deleted the tweets, natch, but Twitter is forever.

Dockett tried to tempt Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron’s girlfriend, Katherine Webb, with the sweet siren call of … Wingstop and a strip club. Roll Wingstop?

What gal can resist such an offer? Wingstop sweetens the deal.

Yep, Ms. Webb’s Twitter follower count is exploding. We suspect it might have more to do with Ms. Webb than Dockett’s lame hit on attempt.

She is now at over 126,000 followers and counting. Ms. Webb took the attention in stride, and continued rooting for her boyfriend’s team.

Boyfriend A.J. McCarron takes it with a grain of salt, too. And some smack talk!

As for the instigator of it all, creepy Brent Musburger?

Update: EPSN apologizes for Musburger’s comments:

Full statement from Mike Soltys, ESPN’s vice president of communications:

Have been asked on focus on @_KatherineWebb in BCS: We always try to capture interesting storylines and the relationship between an Auburn grad who is Miss Alabama and the current Alabama quarterback certainly met that test. However, we apologize that the commentary in this instance went too far and Brent understands that.

    Not quite on the “creeper” level as Marv Albert, but still.

    Wingstop are you listening? Sign her up as a spokesperson! Now! Pay her whatever she wants. All you need is her in an ad, at a game, looking at her smartphone, and thinking “Ooooh Wingstop” and you stock will double in price. :-)

    Hey–am I the only one out there who found Brent Musburger somewhat creepy BEFORE this?

      Actually, I’ve spent the last 30 years or so wondering how Musberger ever became a sportscaster in the first place.

      I mean, “Magic ships to Kareem”? “Kareem rises up”? Seriously?

      Marv Albert’s pretty creepy, too, but at least he can call a halfway decent game.

  • BeeKaaay

    So how many women will call him?

    Too many.

    • Rulz

      What makes you think only women will call?

      • BeeKaaay

        You’re right. I stand corrected :)

  • J.N. Ashby

    A.J. McCarron made history and not a crap was given. I mean did you see Katherine Webb?! Holy balls she’s cute!

    love how other players think the pretty girls are “panting and waiting” to be in their presence.
    Get your own girlfriends, you losers!
