A.J. McCarron Fears for Katherine Webb’s Safety at Iron Bowl

Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron’s Heisman Trophy stock is rising in the week leading up to the Crimson Tide’s showdown with Auburn. But McCarron — this week’s SI cover boy — has other things on his mind: like the safety of his girlfriend at Saturday’s Iron Bowl.

Katherine Webb, whose celebrity first exploded as the victim of a lascivious Brent Musberger’s leering during last year’s BCS national title game, is an Auburn grad. And she recently told USA Today that her boyfriend has trepidation about her attending her first Alabama-Auburn rivalry game — and rooting for the Crimson Tide:

“This is the first actual game, Iron Bowl, that I will be attending,” Webb said last week. “I don’t know what to expect and I’m really nervous.

“Honestly, I don’t know what to expect,” said Webb. “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 why did Webb wait until after she graduated Auburn in 2011 to attend an Iron Bowl?

“I didn’t get to go to the Iron Bowl whenever I was in school because I ended up having to sell my student ticket because I was running low on cash,” she said.

 Seriously...stop being so dramatic  -_-.  I'm pretty sure that I speak for 99.99999999% of Auburn fans when I say that not one single solitary soul in Auburn is concerned with whom or what either of you are doing at any given time.  ESPECIALLY some random chick's football loyalties.  To each their own :P.  And I realize that it may be a difficult concept for the two of you to grasp, but you're both kind of irrelevant to anyone besides your own sort (i.e. AL fans and followers). Besides, I'm pretty sure that WE are not the ones you should be concerning yourselves with in the first place.  WE'RE the ones that have to enlist the services of the ENTIRE national guard to patrol campus before and after an Iron Bowl.  Less someone poison, pillage, threaten life and limb, or GOD KNOWS what else.  Nice publicity stunt.  You two are COMPLETELY ridiculous.  Smdh.

Students selling their tickets shouldn't be allowed. I remember when we got into the games free. Either way, don't have to worry about that AJ or gal pal - Auburn won and most of us outside of Alabama don't like either team anyway.  No Heisman for AJ or Johnny Foosball...lol

Nobody in Auburn cares about you or your traitor girlfriend.
