Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback A.J. McCarron was phenomenal on Monday night in the BCS National Championship as he led his team to their second straight national title, which made McCarron the first starting quarterback to win two national championships.
While McCarron excelled on the field, it was a camera shot from ESPN that had everyone buzzing.
ESPN panned their cameras to Miss Alabama Katherine Webb, who happens to be McCarron’s girlfriend. ESPN analyst Brent Musburger then went on to act like a high school boy and fall over his words while talking about the appearance of the former beauty queen.
Musberger took some heat for his comments and ESPN even issued an apology on his behalf, but that wasn’t the only person infatuated with Miss Webb.
Arizona Cardinals defensive tackle Darnell Dockett and Georgia Bulldogs quarterback Aaron Murray both took to Twitter to comment on Webb.
It was Dockett who first joked that he “accidently” tweeted Webb his number and asked her on a date. It was pretty clear that Dockett was joking, but the message was still delivered loud and clear to McCarron.
Then, there was Murray. McCarron’s college rival who tweeted that Webb should become a Bulldogs fan.
Apparently McCarron caught wind of the comments when he woke up this morning and he got on his Twitter account to respond to the two men commenting about his girlfriend and, man, was it entertaining.
McCarron held no punches and took some shots at both Dockett and Murray.
First, McCarron went after Dockett before saying the defensive tackle should get the Cardinals brass to use a future draft pick on him.
Those comments from McCarron weren’t too venomous, but it was a different tune when he responded to Murray.
Ouch. That one hurt.
Both McCarron and Murray are returning to school for their senior season so let’s we get treated to an on-field match up. I’d love to see the pre and post-game trash talk involved in that one. If the previous Twitter interaction is any indication, I will be pulling for McCarron.
