A.J. McCarron’s girlfriend: Leave Musburger alone

posted at 6:51 pm on January 9, 2013 by Allahpundit

Alternate headline: “Beauty queen accepts compliment.” I feel obliged to follow up on yesterday’s post, partly due to public demand (she’s now over two million Google searches since Monday) and partly because there’s nothing more fun than when a would-be victim kindly declines to serve as the Media-Offense Complex‘s latest hobbyhorse. Her graciousness at old man Musby’s wowee zowee routine makes this a story with a happy ending all around: Brent is exonerated, Webb’s now famous, and McCarron spends the next few months enjoying his new status as the most envied man in America. All’s right with the world.

Exit question: Or is it?

That’s my future ex girlfriend, people.

I don’t understand why so many people are fawning over her. Her bikini photos are mega-lame, and her face is, AT BEST, a 7 on a 10 scale. Not worth the fuss, IMO.

She’s classy.

In a year she’ll be guest blogging on HotAir.

…and I just distracted Allah thoughts for the rest of the night.

I actually made it through the whole video… which is hard with Lauer asking the questions.

She seems like a nice young lady. A real southern belle.

Musburger was over the top. Now if we could get the networks to quit showing erectile dysfunction commercials. In the end the girlfriend won. She’s now known in most USA households.

Not all smoking hotties are vain and vapid. Her,, maybe. Katie P definitely.

wolly4321 on January 9, 2013 at 7:02 PM

I have no idea what this story about. I personally have very little interest in finding out what this story is about. That being said, the most absurd factoid is that they say she’s 23. She looks at least 37, and i’ve seen alot better look 37 years olds.

JamesSeanMcKeane on January 9, 2013 at 7:02 PM

I never liked Musburger but I couldn’t figure out why people were complaining about what he said. The woman competes and wins BEAUTY pagents so it seems like she would be used to positive attention regarding her looks.

katiejane on January 9, 2013 at 7:02 PM

I had a chance before the musberger comment, but now she’s too famous for me. A man has to know his limits.

It looks like she handled herself honorably. There is no doubt that she could use this faux scandal to cash in and get a lot more media attention. What she did in the Lauer interview essentially precludes that, it’s nice to see someone pass up more media etc with class.

“would be” being the key phrase there.

She’s refusing to be offended and I’m sure the usual idiots are fuming.

Oh,and AJ? Quit being a dick and let her enjoy the limelight if that’s what she wants. A relationship involves compromise and encouraging your partner.

It’s not all about you dude. But, you’ll find that out.

Her name is mentioned. I said “Webb’s now famous” in explaining how things turned out okay for everyone. And I mentioned her name in last night’s post, so you should know it from that. She’s listed as McCarron’s girlfriend in the headline because that’s how most people still know her.

Okay, so far, we know that she’s
1) smart,
2) rural,
3) southern,
4) a beauty pageant title holder.

What else, collie?

My collie says:

She doesn’t seem to hold a grudge — which would suggest that she’s not an angry person.

That pretty much cinches it, collie. It’d be d*mn near impossible for her to be a liberal.

When first seeing her when the camera panned and Musberger began his now infamous remarks, my first thought was “The answer is YES and I don’t care what the question is.” After this interview, the answer is “HELL YES!!!”.

AJ McCarron is like, “WTF, I just won my 2nd BCS championship title and all that anyone wants to talk about is my damn girlfriend???”

I have no idea what kind of person McCarron is. But isn’t it equally likely that he’s embarrassed that the focus is all on him and his girlfriend and not on the team and the school? It’s too bad they disappointed America by giving us an unusually boring BCS championship game, but that’s hardly Alabama’s fault.

bobs1196 on January 9, 2013 at 8:28 PM

Tasty! She should be flattered.

TX-96 on January 9, 2013 at 8:28 PM

She’s pretty, and seems to have class – a good catch. I’ve been tweaking an officemate (who is a GA grad) with her response to the GA QB tweeting her: “You don’t win enough”. LOL

GWB on January 9, 2013 at 8:35 PM

She handled the situation with perfect grace.

Having said that, she’s pretty, but I don’t think she’s all that spectacular, certainly not anything to rant about for three minutes on national TV while you’re supposed to be commenting on the game.

James on January 9, 2013 at 8:41 PM

It’s nice to see a grown up deal with something like this in a grown-up way. She must be a conservative. Just imagine Sandra Fluke or Jeanine Garrafolo in this situation!!!

Musberger was still out of line but that’s from someone who’s the father of 3 daughters. Apparently he doesn’t think so.

My question, where was ESPN on the RG III thing? Now that was something that really needed an apology. Instead, the fire the guy before he gets to say “SORRY!@!!”

bflat879 on January 9, 2013 at 8:42 PM

I have no idea what kind of person McCarron is.

bobs1196 on January 9, 2013 at 8:28 PM

He’s not a real man. Here is why: After beating LSU he broke into tears. Men are only allowed to cry if a close friend/family member dies or when Rudy finally gets accepted into the University of Notre Dame in the movie “Rudy”.

That being said, I’m pretty sure the NCAA forgot to give him his “Luckiest Kid in the World” medal. Again, his girlfriend is smoking hot.

I think subtly the culture wars were present. The right side of the political spectrum just isn’t playing the left’s game. Lauer knew and was upset by it.

“Sources say….”. But no quote from McCarron.

Yeah, that’s credibility all right.

The old “sources say” trick is a third-person way to inject some speculation by writers to spice a story.

You who jump on McCarron because “sources say” are a tad gullible, or envious.

He’s a great kid and a credit to himself, his family, and his university. Why people want to tear away at such positive examples is the darker side of the human race. One would expect such nastiness on the Democratic Underground, but here?
