Sad news from the world of college football: Katherine Webb had to withdraw from the ABC reality diving show "Splash."

We'll give you a moment to compose yourselves.

Webb, the beauty pageant queen and Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron's girlfriend, had been on the show with various celebrities, but she said during Tuesday's episode that a practice dive had left her with a back injury and she had to quit the show.

And she was doing so well.

"I've had the worst time training this week because even the most simplest dives shot pain all the way from the middle of my back down my leg," she said on the show. "I went to the doctor and unfortunately he told me I'm out for the competition"

Webb was replaced by Louie Anderson, which might be the worst trade ever. No, it's definitely the worst trade ever. It makes Ernie Broglio for Lou Brock look fair.

In the previous episode, Webb was shown getting frustrated and crying as she struggled with her practice dives. She said she landed hard during one practice dive and that's what had caused the back injury.

Now Webb is free to move forward with whatever project she has lined up next. She usually has something in mind.

Webb took time to thank her almost 267,000 Twitter followers for supporting her in her diving against folks like Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and the actress who was on "Charles in Charge" back in the day.

"Thank you guys for all the support! Means so much. Love you guys," she said.

Tuesday nights won't be the same without her.
