And the winner for "least important or compelling story for this year's Iron Bowl" goes to...
When quarterback AJ McCarron leads Alabama into Auburn on Saturday with an unbeaten record and a shot at the SEC title on the line, he'll be cheered on by girlfriend Katherine Webb.
All well and good, except that she's an Auburn graduate.
"This is the first actual game, Iron Bowl, that I will be attending," Webb told USA Today Sports. "I don't know what to expect and I'm really nervous."
With so much on the line for top-ranked Alabama (11-0, 7-0 SEC) and No. 4 Auburn (10-1, 6-1), Webb is concerned with how fans will treat her.
WE GET IT! SHE'S HOT!! Enough already. She was his girlfriend last year. He was the Alabama QB last year. This is NOT news because there is nothing new. It's not particularly interesting. This is exactly the type of story that just gets people to roll their eyes and do the "ugh, the media" shrug of the shoulders. What's next? A "Brent Musberger Is Still A Creep For Ogling Her Last Year" stories?
