AJ McCarron and girlfriend Katherine Webb root for Auburn

AJ McCarron Katherine Webb

A.J. McCarron took a lot of heat from Alabama fans for rooting for Auburn in the BCS National Championship Game. At least his girlfriend, Katherine Webb, had a much better reason for cheering on the Tigers.

McCarron announced his plans to root for Auburn well before the game. Heck, his mother Dee Dee Bonner even had a Tre Mason T-shirt that she was going to be wearing. But McCarron sent this tweet before the game, which infuriated Bama fans:

McCarron received so much backlash he tried to defend himself by saying he supports the state of Alabama and the SEC. That only made things worse.

Webb similarly gave a “War Eagle” before the game. She has a legitimate reason for her fan enthusiasm; she attended Auburn, and going out with boyfriend A.J. is her only real tie to the Crimson Tide.

I can understand AJ’s loyalty to the state and conference, but man, he is seriously just asking for trouble by stating his feelings publicly. I’d say that this would serve as an olive branch between the two sides, but we all know nothing will lessen the intensity of the rivalry between Auburn and Alabama. Not even McCarron showing everyone that Auburn isn’t so bad.

AJ McCarron and his family have achieved royalty status in Alabama. That sort of happens when you are the star quarterback for the Crimson Tide — you become a legend at the school, and you are an icon in the state for the rest of your life. But with McCarron, it’s not just him who has become extremely popular.

At each of McCarron’s games, his mother, Dee Dee Bonner, and girlfriend, Katherine Webb, are usually in attendance. The two are frequently shown together on TV, and they share pictures on social media of their time at the games. Both Bonner and Webb expressed disappointment on Thursday that the Sugar Bowl would be their last time together at an Alabama game where AJ was the quarterback:

Takeo Spikes holds up ‘Hey AJ, tell Katherine to quit calling me!’ sign

Takeo-Spikes-Katherine-Webb-sign

If you happened to be out of the country this weekend, you missed one of the greatest endings to a to a football game in the history of the sport. Auburn defeated Alabama in the Iron Bowl when defensive back Chris Davis returned a missed 57-yard field goal for a touchdown to break a 28-28 tie. This made Takeo Spikes and the rest of the Tigers alumni very happy.

On Saturday night, Spikes celebrated with thousands of others on Auburn’s campus. At one point, the former NFL linebacker was spotted holding a sign that read, “Hey AJ, tell Katherine to quit calling me!” That, as you know, is a reference to Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron and his lovely girlfriend Katherine Webb.

We’re guessing Spikes didn’t make the sign, but it’s still hilarious that he displayed it proudly. You’d expect McCarron to be irritated by it, but he should be pretty used to NFL players hitting on his girl by now.

AJ McCarron girlfriend Katherine Webb rooting for Alabama over Auburn

AJ-McCarron-Katherine-Webb

Katherine Webb, the beauty queen/model girlfriend of Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron, announced prior to Saturday’s huge Iron Bowl game between the Crimson Tide and Auburn Tigers that she will be rooting for Bama despite being an Auburn grad.

A few hours before the game, Webb tweeted “RTR,” which stands for “Roll Tide Roll.”

She then explained why she would be supporting boyfriend McCarron over Auburn:

Webb has been attending Bama’s games all season to support McCarron, and there were questions about whether she would attend the Iron Bowl. Despite attending and graduating from Auburn, Webb has never been to an Iron Bowl game. She admitted during the week that she will be nervous about the game, but not because of what might happen with the fans; she’s nervous about Alabama pursuing the national championship.

Katherine Webb ‘nervous’ about Iron Bowl game between Alabama and her alma mater

Katherine-Webb-AJ-McCarronFor those of you who are keeping track at home, it would appear that Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron and his girlfriend Katherine Webb are still together. There have been a number of rumors floating around about college football’s favorite couple breaking up over the past few months, but Webb has still been attending McCarron’s games with his mom and awaiting victory smooches.

During an interview with USA Today earlier this week, Webb spoke about the upcoming Iron Bowl game between No. 1 Alabama and No. 4 Auburn. Believe it or not, the Auburn alum has never been to an Iron Bowl game.

“This is the first actual game, Iron Bowl, that I will be attending,” Webb said. “I don’t know what to expect and I’m really nervous. I  didn’t get to go to the Iron Bowl whenever I was in school because I ended up having to sell my student ticket because I was running low on cash.”

Oh, how the times have changed. Webb has become pretty famous since Brent Musburger introduced her to the world last year during the BCS National Championship Game, so I’m sure she has plenty of extra cash laying around. Webb said McCarron is worried about opposing fans potentially being cruel to her, but she’s just concerned about the outcome of the game.

“Honestly, I don’t know what to expect,” Webb explained. “AJ just in his protective nature, we talked about it (Wednesday) night. And he was like, ‘I’m concerned. I don’t know what the fans are gonna do.’ And I’m like, ‘It’s OK. I’ll be sweet, genuine and nice like I always am if anything were to happen.’

“I’m not nervous about the fans. Of course I want to see AJ have that fourth championship ring, so I really want them to do well. That’s what I’m nervous about. I’m not nervous about his talent or abilities as a player. Of course, I would be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous about the outcome.”

This year, the outcome of the Iron Bowl could ultimately determine which team gets to play for a national championship. Our advice? Never bet against Nick Saban.

Verne Lundquist jabs ESPN, Brent Musburger over Katherine Webb (Video)

Katherine Webb Dee Dee BonnerVerne Lundquist isn’t going to gush over Katherine Webb the way Brent Musburger did during the BCS National Championship Game, and he isn’t afraid to let you know that on national TV.

Towards the end of Alabama’s 38-17 win over LSU on Saturday, CBS decided to show two members of Bama’s first family. They flashed to Webb and Dee Dee Bonner (AJ McCarron’s girlfriend and mother), who were in the stands to watch their loved one compete.

Play-by-play announcer Lundquist kept his comments about Webb and Bonner brief, leaving Gary Danielson to question whether his partner was going to say anything else as the shot dragged on.

“That’s it? That’s all you’re going to say?” Danielson asked.

“You’re darned right. I don’t work for that four-letter network. Discretion,” Lundquist advised, as Danielson laughed.

Easy there, Verne. Next thing you know he’ll be calling Brent a pervert.

Also – you have to read this story from SI about how Lundquist picked up his wife at a bar over 30 years ago. It was a bold move, Cotton, and it definitely paid off.

Katherine Webb trying to show she and AJ McCarron are still together?

AJ-McCarron-Katherine-Webb

Katherine Webb is making it very difficult for us to determine if she and Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron have broken up. Two weeks ago, a report that sounded pretty legitimate surfaced claiming the famous couple has decided to split. Then we saw Webb give McCarron a kiss on the cheek after Alabama’s win over Ole Miss, although it did not seem like a girlfriend kiss at all. And have you checked out Webb’s Instagram page lately?

Webb wrote on Instagram that the photo you see above was taken before the Ole Miss game. She also uploaded a photo of her and McCarron’s mom with a caption that reads “Waiting on our victory kisses after the Ole Miss win.”
