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.
