2. Alabama’s biggest rival is Auburn. To say the schools dislike each other would be an understatement. Their hatred for one another is nearly unmatched in college football.

3. Which is why this photo of McCarron and Miss Alabama Katherine Webb together on Christmas Eve is so interesting. Webb is an Auburn grad.

[Notation my own.]

Webb met McCarron on Twitter and the two have gotten closer since. After Webb tweeted the photo on Christmas Eve, her friends began commenting on it. This exchange in particular seemed to point to a relationship.

6. Webb then seemed to confirm the relationship on Twitter.

7. So if McCarron has a bad BCS Championship game, I think we know who Bama fans will blame.

8. But Webb’s not playing into it. She wants to be a uniter of Alabamans. After all she is Miss Alabama.

9. I for one am rooting for these two. I’m sure the cutthroat world of Alabama celebrity is easier with a partner.
