Katherine Webb came off as pretty sharp after her fame blew up during the BCS Championship Game, and she's smartly taking advantage of her instant celebrity.

Webb, Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron's girlfriend and Miss Alabama, announced on Twitter that she will be covering the Super Bowl for "Inside Edition." Maybe she wants a television career (she came off well during her "Today" show interview, for what it's worth), or maybe she wants to have some fun and get a free trip to New Orleans. Either way, good for her.

And obviously, "Inside Edition" knows what it's doing here. We haven't seen anything that leads us to believe Webb has done television in this capacity before, or has any training in the field - she graduated from Auburn with a degree in business management and administration - but she's the star of the month after the BCS title game, and many people will tune in to see her. Even though we have no idea what "Inside Edition" actually covers at a Super Bowl. Whatever.

Some on Twitter had rude comments to Webb after her announcement, but McCarron's mother Dee Dee Bonner wasn't going to let it slide:

So Webb gets a pretty cool TV opportunity and a chance to be in Sports Illustrated's swimsuit issue out of her fame, which sprung to life after she was shown on ESPN's telecast. Seems like Brent Musburger's comments really didn't need any apology.
