Football Star's Girlfriend Katherine Webb Shoots to Fame After Announcer Ogles Her During Game (VIDEO)

Katherine WebbIf you're asking who the heck Katherine Webb is, you probably didn't watch the BCS championship game between Alabama and Notre Dame last night or haven't spent much time online today. Because her name and face are everywhere after commentator Brent Musburger completely went gaga for her while announcing the game.

Not just any random fan, she's Miss Alabama and the girlfriend of Alabama's AJ McCarron, and she is quite stunning. But the way he went on and on ... and on about her while the camera zeroed in on her face was definitely a little much. You hear Musburger say, "Wow, I'm telling you quarterbacks: You get all the good-looking women. What a beautiful woman. Wow!" And he doesn't stop there. See what you think.

This video can not be viewed on The Stir Mobile.

He was definitely drooling, but I actually didn't find it all that creepy. Plenty of people did, however, and ESPN issued an apology saying "the commentary in this instance went too far and Brent understands that."

As for Webb, well she's basking in the limelight of this little scandal. On Twitter alone, she's racking up followers at an astonishing rate. Before last night's game she reportedly had about 500 followers, now she has almost at 200,000 followers -- including LeBron James and Darnell Dockett, who tweeted his phone number to her and suggested they get together after the game. For an aspiring model, that's certainly got to be a career booster.

Webb says she wasn't offended by it at all and told the Associated Press earlier today, "It was kind of nice. I didn't look at it as creepy at all. For a woman to be called beautiful, I don't see how that's an issue."

Her father, Alan Webb, agreed and told Fox 5:

On one hand, you can look at it as being kind of like the dirty old man, but I'm used to this and I think if you really look into what that he was trying to say, he was trying to be complimentary, and I think they need to give Brent a break.

So yeah, if they're cool with it, I think old Brent deserves a break. He may need a lesson in subtlety, but it seems in this case, it should come down to no harm, no foul. Or is that basketball?

Did you think the commentator's remarks were over the top?

    Sounded like he just had a brain freeze and was just rambling. You know how sometime you start saying something and can't reel it back in.

    Much ado about nothing. She's a pretty girl. Believe me I've been mesmerized by a young snacky treat or two. Cut the guy some slack he's been married for over fifty years. He's allowed as long as his wife doesn't have a problem with it. Lord knows it was public so no big deal, and I'm sure she and the boyfriend are having a good hoot over it as are the rest of the team.

    It wasn't just the one instance, they repeatedly cut to her all throughout the game and afterwards. It was getting awkward. She was getting more screen time than the Notre Dame offence. Lol Roll Tide!!!

    Yes she is pretty but why oh why ficus on her at all??? She is ONLY the GF nothing to do with football. It was kind of embarrassing since other women don't get this attention and shouldn't.

    - heard it today on the radio - completely don't understand what the big fuss is about. She's beautiful and he commented on it - nothing he said was inappropriate - people need to stop being so sensitive and politically correct...if this is all you have to worry / complain about - go get a hobby.

    Did you critics not watch the game? She got the attention so we'd stop thinking about the putrid Norte Dame offense.
