It should come as little surprise that Jenn Sterger attracted some attention on social media on Monday given that the Florida State Seminoles were taking on the Auburn Tigers in the BCS title game. As you may recall, long before she got caught up in the Brett Favre dong photo scandal, Sterger rose to prominence as an FSU Cowgirl when she attended the university.
Showing up at Seminoles games scantily clad even prompted Brent Musburger to utter the now-infamous line during a 2005 Florida State-Miami game: “1,500 red-blooded Americans just decided to apply to Florida State.”
Sterger tweeted out the above message and photo on Monday and also indicated that she was in attendance for Monday night’s game, in which FSU ultimately prevailed.
Other happenings on social media during the game that also attracted some attention worldwide was Dee Dee Bonner, the mother of Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback A.J. McCarron, and her ill-advised commentary about Jameis Winston’s post-game comments.
In a tweet since deleted, McCarrron offered up the following about Winston’s comments:
Of course, she quickly defended the tweet:
Any1 that knows our family knows we r far from racist. My tweet was not in anyway meant that way. I sincerely apologize if it offended any1

Also receiving some backlash over her online activity on Monday is Katherine Webb, the girlfriend of A.J. McCarron, who favorited a tweet also criticizing Winston:
Upon being ripped for favoriting such a tweet, Webb later said it was a mistake and attempted to clarify that no, she is not a racist.
The idea that I am a racist is absolutely stupid and it needs to stop. I was scrolling through my TL and that tweet was accidentally FAV.

Which brings us back full circle to Miss Jenn Sterger. Sterger also took notice of Webb and McCarron’s social media activity, offering up the following observation:
What happens on the Internet stays on the Internet… Including blatant racism. Please stay classy, people.

It’s fairly clear what has drawn Sterger’s ire. But could Sterger simply be defending the Seminoles quarterback or is there something more to her appearing to call out Dee Dee and Miss Webb?
Perhaps Sterger is exhibiting some jealousy over how Webb replaced her Brent Musburger’s favorite college football eye candy. You may recall Musburger creepily ogling Webb during a game last year’s BCS National Championship Game. In other words…
That’s right, folks. I see what’s going on in here. I am smack dab in the middle of a good old fashioned cat fight. Indeed.
