For those living on another planet the past couple months, Webb, the former Miss Alabama, became an overnight sensation when veteran broadcaster Brent Musburger gushed over her during the BCS Championship game in January. The game itself was not that exciting (Alabama destroyed Notre Dame to claim their third national championship in four years) and the announcers couldn’t stop talking about Webb. The Auburn grad was in attendance because she is dating Crimson Tide quarterback AJ McCarron. She gained a devoted Twitter following after the title game — going from 2,000 to 175,000 followers in a matter of days and catching the eye of celebrities and athletes like LeBron James and Darnell Dockett. Overnight, she became one of the most-searched women on the Internet. Now she’s really hit the big time with an appearance in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Not bad for a southern girl.
