AJ McCarron and girlfriend Katherine Webb: the full history

Katherine Webb AJ McCcarron

AJ McCarron and Katherine Webb make up Alabama’s first couple, if such a thing exists. McCarron is a senior and in his third season as the starting quarterback of the Crimson Tide. He led the Tide to back-to-back titles in his two years as a starter and has gone 26-2 in 28 starts over three years. He’s thrown for 50 touchdowns and nine interceptions during his career. Webb’s stats in her field of modeling have been nearly as impressive. She was the 2012 Miss Alabama USA, a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition model, and she has appeared on TV.

Webb became famous after ABC announcer Brent Musburger gushed over her good looks during the national championship game between Alabama and Notre Dame in January, but her relationship with McCarron began a few months before that.

McCarron and Webb met over Twitter after a mutual friend mentioned the two in the same tweet late last year. Webb says McCarron began following her after that, and she followed him back. They exchanged phone numbers and began to develop a relationship through text messaging. That happened in late November.

“I had no idea who AJ was. But I thought he was cute,” Webb told AL.com about the first time they connected over Twitter.

This is the tweet that started it all:

Best pajama party ever?

Kate Upton is on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine, so Katherine Webb, girlfriend of Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron, decided to congratulate her fellow SI swimsuit model on the accomplishment.

Katherine Webb and Katherine Upton … together in the same room … ordering room service … and having a pajama party? Oh, I dunno, possibly two of the most attractive Katherines of all time? If you’re having a bad day, just think of that visual for a moment and I promise you it will get better.

Oh, and Upton’s not the only one of the two to score a cover recently. Here’s Webb with McCarron’s mother DeeDee Bonner on the cover of Access:

Marisa Miller, Katherine Webb highlight hottest women of the 2013 ESPYs

Why do I love the ESPYs? Like many others, I enjoy reliving some of the best highlights from the sports year. Awards like Best Game, Best Play and Best Moment bring back a roller coaster of emotions for everyone from casual fans to diehards. But that’s only part of it.

There are also the women. Between the celebrities and WAGs, the ESPYs provide us with some of the best people-watching of the calendar year. Those who demolish the red carpet deserve credit for it, so we’ve decided to rank them for you. Here are your hottest women of the 2013 ESPYs.

Hope-Solo-ESPYs

10. Hope Solo — Maybe I can’t get past the fact that she’s bats*** crazy, but I’ve never been a big fan of Hope. I wasn’t a big fan when she was in ESPN the Magazine’s “Body Issue” and that hasn’t changed much, but I know others like her.

AJ McCarron and Katherine Webb seem to be doing just fine

AJ McCarron Katherine Webb

There’s a common response couples have when their relationship is being questioned, and that is to share a photo on social media as if to say, “see, everything’s fine.” That seems to be what Katherine Webb was telling us.

The Alabama beauty queen shared the above photo on Instagram Friday of her at boyfriend A.J. McCarron’s graduation. McCarron is a redshirt senior, so he just completed his fourth academic year at Tuscaloosa, which explains his graduation.

As for the timing of the photo, there was a report last week saying that a model spent the night with McCarron while Webb was away. The insinuation from the gossip reports was that there would be problems between Webb and McCarron as a result of the story, but it looks like that’s not the case. Here’s to America’s favorite couple.

AJ McCarron spent night with model Margaret Wood, so gossip sites implied he cheated on Katherine Webb

Apparently A.J. McCarron can’t even have a woman stay over at his home to prevent her from driving drunk without gossip sites suggesting that he is cheating on girlfriend Katherine Webb.

Radar Online reported on Monday that model Margaret Wood hung out with the Alabama quarterback over the weekend. She was flying from LA to Memphis and had a stopover in Birmingham, not too far from the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa. After her connecting flight to Memphis was cancelled, she and her friends went drinking, and McCarron apparently went to meet them. The group went back to McCarron’s afterwards.

“We were hanging out at his house, and I had been drinking, so he didn’t want me to drive,” Wood told Radar Online. “I did not stay at a hotel. That’s all I can say. I’m trying to be careful about what I say because I feel really bad.”

Wood says she met McCarron last fall, before he even got involved with Webb.

“He asked for my number back in the fall when I was on the sidelines at the Ole Miss-Alabama game,” Wood told Radar Online. “I didn’t even know who he was. I had no idea he was even talking to Katherine. I thought he was cute.”

This photo, posted to Wood’s Twitter account on Nov. 19, 2012, seems to corroborate her story:

Even after getting together with Webb, McCarron apparently was still trying to make plans with Wood.

Katherine Webb forced to leave ABC’s ‘Splash’ because of a back injury

Katherine-WebbKatherine Webb had not exactly been lighting things up on ABC’s reality diving show “Splash” prior to Tuesday night, but the former Miss Alabama USA had been holding her own. However, her run on the show came to an end this week due to a back injury.

According to AL.com, Webb had performed inconsistently on the show but done well enough to stick around while four other competitors were either eliminated or decided to quit. A training montage of Webb that was played at the beginning of the show’s most recent episode showed her struggling mightily during a series of practice dives. Before making her competitive dive on Tuesday, Webb revealed that she is leaving the show.

“I went to the doctor and unfortunately he told me I’m out for the competition,” she said.

Webb took to Twitter late Tuesday night to thank her fans for their support after making the announcement. Because Webb has been forced to leave the competition due to injury, the show’s rules state that the competitor who was most recently eliminated will be brought back. That person is 400-pound comedian Louie Anderson, who has served as an inspiration to many because of his witty sense of humor and the weight he has lost during the show.

Anderson delighted the audience on Tuesday with a feet-first jump from a 10-meter platform. However, I’m sure there are plenty of people who will miss seeing Webb in her bikini. AJ McCarron did all he could to coach her on dealing with the media, but I’m sure he could tell you that injuries happen.

AJ McCarron says he has been coaching Katherine Webb with her media work

Katherine-Webb-AJ-McCarronEver since Brent Musburger drooled over her on national television during the BCS National Championship game, Katherine Webb has been a celebrity. Her new-found fame has led to appearances in publications like Sports Illustrated and on reality TV shows like ABC’s “Splash.” As a result, she has had to learn how to deal with the media.

Luckily, Webb’s boyfriend AJ McCarron has already been there. Considering he plays for arguably the most popular football program in the nation, the Alabama quarterback knows a thing or two about having microphones in your face and cameras following you around.

“She’s been asking me for advice the whole time,” McCarron told ESPN.com’s Chris Low. “Even though she was Miss Alabama and all that, she had never been through any of the paparazzi deal, and it all came at her at once so fast.

“She’s still learning how to handle everything and will text me or call me for advice. I just have to tell her, ‘Listen, I’ve been going through this for three years almost.’ I do my best to help her every way I can.”

Something tells me it could be the other way around before long. As for Musburger, we already know the ESPN announcer doesn’t think he did anything wrong with what he said about Webb on the air. Webb even said herself that she appreciates what he has done for her career, and McCarron seems to share that opinion.

“He didn’t say anything out of line, and he told me they were going to show her,” McCarron said. “I told him where they would be sitting earlier that week at practice. He helped boost her career, which is awesome.”

For all that’s been said about the 73-year-old acting out of line by talking about how beautiful Webb is, he has made her into a very rich and successful young woman. If Musburger hadn’t said what he did about Webb, McCarron wouldn’t be giving her tips on how to handle fame. That’s just the way it goes in America.
