Oh, dear. During last night’s national championship game between Notre Dame and Alabama, ESPN sportscaster Brent Musburger drew attention to Katherine Webb, Miss Alabama and the girlfriend of Alabama’s quarterback.

This drew the attention of the NFL’s Darnell Dockett.

Wake up to see Darnell Dockett just dirty macking at 7am

— Doc Dre (@dredreezy) January 8, 2013

At least the Arizona Cardinals’ Darnell Dockett didn’t pull a Weiner; no pics accidentally tweeted publicly. Alas, he did tweet out his phone number on his public timeline instead of via direct message. He swiftly deleted the tweets, natch, but Twitter is forever.

Dockett tried to tempt Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron’s girlfriend, Katherine Webb, with the sweet siren call of … Wingstop and a strip club. Roll Wingstop?

Anyone want to call @ddockett? “Aye @_katherinewebb hit me (240) 464-4150 when game over, lets go to wing stop then King of diamond, 😉”

— Matt Tate (@_MattTate_) January 8, 2013

Darnell Dockett asking out AJ McCarron’s girlfriend on twitter is hilarious. Wings and the strip club, Darnell? Come on man.

— Brock Konrad (@BrockKonrad) January 8, 2013

What gal can resist such an offer? Wingstop sweetens the deal.

Darnell Dockett’s so cute thinking he had anything to do with Katherine Webb getting some followers…

— MH (@HIM_88) January 8, 2013

Yep, Ms. Webb’s Twitter follower count is exploding. We suspect it might have more to do with Ms. Webb than Dockett’s lame hit on attempt.

Correction to prior tweet: @_katherinewebb has gained far, far more than 15,000 followers today. It’s more like 60,000…and still rising.

As for the instigator of it all, creepy Brent Musburger?

Update: EPSN apologizes for Musburger’s comments:

“We apologize…” ESPN’s statement regarding Brent Musberger’s comments about A.J. McCarron’s girlfriend:

— SB Nation (@sbnation) January 8, 2013

Full statement from Mike Soltys, ESPN’s vice president of communications:

Have been asked on focus on @_KatherineWebb in BCS: We always try to capture interesting storylines and the relationship between an Auburn grad who is Miss Alabama and the current Alabama quarterback certainly met that test. However, we apologize that the commentary in this instance went too far and Brent understands that.
