Katherine Webb Might Determine The Winner Of This Year’s Iron Bowl [PHOTOS]

‚ By 

Some of us here at COED are true veterans of the Alabama/Auburn Iron Bowl rivalry–so we speak with some authority that it takes a babe like Katherine Webb to distract the football fans there from the game. In fact, Katherine Webb is pretty much the only gal that we’ve even seen become a hot topic on Game Day. We’re talking about star-crossed lovers, too.

For those who haven’t been paying attention, Katherine became a big deal after she caught the attention of sportscaster Brent Musberger during last year’s BCS national title game. Musberger provided some leering commentary on Miss Alabama that suddenly turned Katherine Webb into a star. She went from being the glamorous girlfriend of Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron to being a celebrity. Of course, McCarron is a celebrity himself. The potential Heisman Trophy winner is even on the cover of Sports Illustrated this week.

Now we’re hoping that McCarron isn’t too distracted by his famous girlfriend attending her first Iron Bowl this year. Katherine’s told USA Today that the poor guy’s worrying about her in the stands. After all, this is no playful Carl’s Jr.’s commercial. Katherine will be an Auburn University grad cheering on the Crimson Tide. As she explained to USA Today…

Honestly, I don’t know what to expect. AJ, just in his protective nature, we talked about it [Wednesday] night. And he was like, “I’m concerned. I don’t know what the fans are gonna do.” And I’m, like, “It’s OK. I’ll be sweet, genuine and nice like I always am if anything were to happen.”

So will AJ McCarron be so distracted by his concerns for Katherine that he might lose focus and cost Alabama the win over Auburn? We don’t know. That all sounds like a soap opera to us. We can relate to Katherine being a distraction, though. Check out these pics and see the real concerns that might keep McCarron from giving 100% on the playing field. If we had a gal like Katherine Webb, we’d be retired before risking any injury to our favorite groping fingers…
