Katherine Webb, girlfriend of Alabama's A.J. McCarron, thanks Brent Musberger for fame

Katherine Webb is grateful to Brent Musburger for helping launch her career during Alabama's 42-14 BCS Championship game win over Notre Dame, even if it did come about in an odd way.

Webb, girlfriend of Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron, went on the Dan Patrick Show on Thursday and thanked Musburger, 73, for making her an internet sensation after video of the long-time football commentator ogling her during the game went viral.

The former Miss Alabama USA told Patrick that she didn't take offense because, "every girl wants to be told that they're pretty and they're beautiful."

Webb picked up almost 75,000 followers on her Twitter account after Musburger made comments such as, among other things, saying that boys in the state of Alabama needed to focus on football and not school so that they could be with women like her. The sports commentator also appeared to have an affinity for McCarron's mother as well.

As much as it hurts me to say this, I believe this whole issue proves Kiffin's statement of any press is good press. Who would have thought that Musburger's comments would become Ms. Webb's career turn around moment?

She comes across as a very well spoken, very attractive young lady. I hope she has a great life in front of her. A.J. needs to pop the question!

Being an "internet sensation" is a career?

Just following the money but its easy to see why Musburger was impressed, however he wasnt holding the camera so it seems logical that the camera man might be the one who was tongue tied. LOL!

Your right she is beautiful! But here is the reality: She is just another pretty face, and there are a lot of pretty faces out there. Even beautiful people have a lot of competition!! It's a dog-eat-dog world for beautiful people too!

Let it go Doc. Brittney's probably gained a lot of weight and not such a fox anymore. Maybe not.

Didn't know they had one of those.

She acts "innocent" and surprised by all the attention. That's an act. She knows exactly what to do to get the most out of her looks and this opportunity. She needs to get rid of those horse teeth, while she's at it.
