ESPN Apologizes For Musburger Comments About QB's Girlfriend

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) -- ESPN is apologizing for some of the commentary from Brent Musburger during last night's telecast of the college football championship game, won by Alabama over Notre Dame.

As ESPN's cameras repeatedly focused on spectator Katherine Webb, who is Miss Alabama USA and the girlfriend of Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron, Musburger kept commenting about how attractive she is. He said, "Wow, I'm telling you quarterbacks: You get all the good-looking women."

ESPN has released a statement saying that the commentary "went too far" -- and that Musburger "understands that."

Meanwhile, Webb has picked up more than 140,000 new Twitter followers.

Among those who noticed Webb was Arizona Cardinals defensive end Darnell Dockett. He tweeted her his telephone number and suggested that they meet after the game. He later tweeted that he meant to message her privately.

McCarron responded after the game, telling Dockett on Twitter to "keep dreaming."
