By now, Katherine Webb has surely swept every American off their feet. Miss Alabama USA 2012 was in the stands at Monday's BCS Championship game to cheer for her boyfriend, Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron. While Alabama was rolling Tide all over Notre Dame, Brent Musburger and the rest of the country took a second or 20 to relish in Webb's beauty. Musburger went as far as to suggest that Webb was reason enough for young men all over Alabama to seek out a life behind center. Now, ESPN is apologizing for the extent of Musburger's comments.

The ESPN statement reads: “We always try to capture interesting storylines and the relationship between an Auburn grad who is Miss Alabama and the current Alabama quarterback certainly met that test. However, we apologize that the commentary in this instance went too far and Brent understands that.” [John Ourand]
