This offseason we will count down various topics from Monday through Friday, bringing you the top five of the important and definitely some not so important issues in college football. It's the Doc Five, every week until we will thankfully have actual games to discuss.
TOP FIVE MOST FAMOUS GIRLFRIENDS IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL
NO. 1, KATHERINE WEBB (AJ MCCARRON)
We posted a story about Katherine Webb appearing in Vanity Fair on Thursday. By Friday morning, there were more than 4,000 comments on the bottom of the post. For the last two months, Webb has been the biggest star associated with college football.
Our last two posts on Johnny Manziel, the first freshman Heisman Trophy winner ever, generated about 350 comments combined. Two posts this week on Jadeveon Clowney, the likely first pick of the 2014 NFL draft, got a little more than 300 comments. That's obviously far from an accurate or scientific method of proving stardom, but it says something.
There's no question about Webb's fame anymore. That's undeniable. The story of Miss Alabama, an Auburn grad, dating Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron started to spread in December. It took off during the BCS Championship Game when Webb was shown on television. And then shown again. And again.
It was a perfect storm. Brent Musburger's comments about her during a boring title game were the most talked-about part of the night on social media. Webb's Twitter followers grew by hundreds of thousands. She embraced the fame and has been in the spotlight since.
The question becomes, where does Webb go from here?
