Former Miss Alabama Katherine Webb says ESPN announcer Brent Musberger doesn't owe her an apology after he singled her out on Monday night's BCS Championship football game – where she was watching her boyfriend, star quarterback AJ McCarron, lead Alabama to a runaway victory over Notre Dame.
Webb's profile on Twitter went white hot on Monday – from 2,000 followers to nearly 200,000 – as Musberger, 73, took to the airways during the game to extol the beauty queen's good looks and her relationship with McCarron.
The couple, who met on Twitter, have been dating for a month.
Quickly, however, viewers and others criticized Musberger's effusive praise as "creepy."
