ESPN has apologized for comments that broadcaster Brent Musburger made during the BCS game telecast on Monday night.During the network's coverage of the game -- which Alabama won 42-14 over Notre Dame to take its third title in four years -- ESPN cameras panned to Alabama quarterback A. Mc Carron's girlfriend, Katherine Webb, who was sitting in the stands.He introduced her as Mc Carron’s girlfriend and called her a “lovely lady.” "You quarterbacks, you get all the good looking women," Musburger said, referring to Webb. “So extremely blessed...,” she wrote following the game. "What a beautiful woman." Following his musings, the Twitterverse exploded with posts, mostly agreeing with Musburger. Webb didn’t even realize she was going viral until people in the crowd began telling her she was trending online. So, I had no idea any of this was going on and all the people around me were like, ‘Oh my god, Katherine! ’” The 23-year-old model has been dating Mc Carron for a little more than a month.“My phone had died before I even got into the stadium and so I was like, ‘Man! He put up some great stats last night, but she arguably became the bigger story.“By far the best part of the #BCS game and my MVP is Katherine Webb! If you were watching the BCS National Championship game last night, you probably got bored after the first quarter because Alabama totally dominated the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. The former Miss Alabama caused a sensation on the internet, immediately trending worldwide.
The depigmentation-causing skin condition also affected M. She decided not to compete again until she received her college degree, and was crowned Miss Alabama USA in January 2012.
And Donald Trump, co-owner of the Miss USA Pageant, tweeted that Webb was going to be asked to judge the upcoming event in Las Vegas.
Meanwhile, the BCS game pulled a 15.7 overnight rating, a 14 percent jump from last year's most-watched broadcast in all of cable, the title game between Alabama and LSU.
After the media and bloggers also began posting stories about the commentary, ESPN issued a statement apologizing for the remarks.
“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," the network said.
