Reigning Miss Alabama Katherine Webb has found herself on the receiving end of Twitter's collective affection this week after garnering quite a bit of attention during her Crimson Tide football player boyfriend AJ McCarron's big game. As the camera panned into the audience during the University of Alabama / Notre Dame game Monday night, ESPN commentator Brent Musburger effusively praised the beauty queen, who'd come out to support her boyfriend. "Wow, I'm telling you, you quarterbacks, you get all the good-looking women," Musburger said. "What a beautiful woman. Whoa!" ESPN later apologized for Musburger's commentary, saying that it "went too far." Webb, for her part, found his comments "complimentary, not creepy," and thinks "it's unfair that people are giving him a hard time." Whether she finds the subsequent Twitter attention she's received creepy or not is another question entirely. Since the game's broadcast, Webb amassed more than 100,000 new Twitter followers. So far, she's taken it all in stride, telling that "the media attention would be awesome if I was looking to make something out of it," but "[a]ll I want to do is date AJ. My intentions are not to feed off everything." So what kind of tweets can Webb expect? We'll break it down for you.
