Verne Lundqvist’s calm, even voice is a hallmark of CBS broadcasts, his familiar tone reminding folks back home that CBS is supposed to be a classy station.
Classy stations don’t use four-letter words on-air — and in the case of Lundqvist, who apparently can make a good joke when called upon, his stable of four-letter words includes the acronym for one behemoth sports network: ESPN.
Lundqvist found himself intoning backhanded judgment on said network over the weekend as he called the Alabama-LSU game alongside Gary Danielson. Near the end of the game, the camera panned to the sideline, where Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron’s mom, Dee Dee Bonner, and girlfriend, Katherine Webb, were watching the game. Webb, of course, became instantly famous last year when she was spotted on the sideline of another Alabama game, where she was the subject of one of the most awkward on-air comments ever courtesy of ESPN’s Brent Musburger.
Lundqvist, however, is a pro, and he simply identified the pair ...

The 2013 Heisman Watch got a whole lot closer in week 11 thanks to Oregon’s loss to Stanford. Was it enough to knock Marcus Mariota off his first place pedestal? Here’s my updated top 5:
5. A.J. McCarron, Alabama:
The senior quarterback silenced his haters and doubters on Saturday night, rolling the Crimson Tide to a 38-17 victory over no. 13 LSU. The Tigers put up a fight...

After a week of some important game sin the BCS championship picture we are beginning to see a bit more clearly how things are going to work out coming down the final stretch of the regular season. As usual, our staff submitted our top 10 this week and they have been combined to form our weekly power...
Near the end of the LSU-Alabama game on CBS, we had our first cutaway of Katherine Webb, who as we all know by now, is the girlfriend of Crimson Tide quarterback A.J. McCarron. And while Verne Lundquist did mention her sitting next to McCarron's mother, Dee Dee Bonner, he chose not to gush over Webb as his former colleague Brent Musburger did earlier this year.
It's been close to a year since Brent Musburger uttered those now infamous about Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron's girlfriend, the lovely Miss Katherine Webb, and the memory of them does not appear to be going away anytime soon.
During the Saturday night broadcast of the Alabama/LSU game the camera eventually found Webb with A.J.'s mom in the stands. Much like the...
Alabama coach Nick Saban almost never shows emotion. But after the Tide’s big 38-17 win over LSU tonight, he apparently couldn’t hold back his joy. In a move very unlike anything we’ve ever seen before from the Alabama coach, Saban jumped into quarterback A.J. McCarron’s arms right as the buzzer sounded.
Saban went on to call McCarron “the best quarterback in the country”...

We’ve got a dandy going in Tuscaloosa tonight. After LSU took the lead, 7-3, on a 3-yard touchdown run by Jeremy Hill, Alabama struck back on a 52-yard touchdown pass from A.J. McCarron to O.J. Howard. It’s 10-7 in the second quarter.

Wall Street Journal sports columnist Rachel Bachman is tired of Alabama and its winning ways. Bachman recently wrote an "open letter" to Auburn head football coach Gus Malzahn calling him and the Tigers "Our Last Chance" to stop a third consecutive Crimson Tide BCS title.
Bachman describes Alabama...
TUSCALOOSA, Ala.– Head coach Nick Saban called him the best quarterback in the country, because all he does is win. A.J. McCarron did just that yet again, at #1 Alabama defeated #13 LSU, 38-17. McCarron, with girlfriend Katherine Webb and mother Dee Dee Bonner in attendance threw for 179 yards, on 14-20 attempts, and three […]
The quest for the Heisman Trophy is officially a two-man race.I had hoped AJ McCarron would do something magical Saturday night, have a Heisman moment and jump into the picture for the trophy, but that did not happen. All McCarron did was lead a very good Alabama program over a mismatched LSU team that hung around for 35 minutes in the game Saturday night, then saw the wheels come...
A.J. McCarron hit tight end O.J. Howard to give the Alabama Crimson Tide a 10-3 second-quarter lead over LSU.

I have to praise you like...
With another week down, it is time to take a look at just who stood out in the weekend's best SEC matches.
As a new week begins to form, here is a look back at just who topped the charts and made the headlines on Saturday.
The AJ McCarron and TJ Yeldon combo:
Power. Pure power. Once these two get going, there is not much that can stop them and Saturday proved that...
It's never easy to figure out who will be the last two teams standing under the current BCS system.
Thankfully, that system goes away soon.
In the meantime, the struggle to define and recognize the actual two best teams continues. And this year, it seems to be taking shape.
Alabama continued their run of staking a claim in the BCS title hunt by easily dispatching LSU...
