So why did Katherine Webb announce on Twitter that she was doing a photo shoot for Sports Illustrated, and then quickly delete it? Mystery afoot! It was earlier this week that Webb worried that her new-found fame would harm her relationship with her boyfriend, Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron. Webb, of course, came to prominence when ESPN’s Brent Musburger praised her looks during the BCS title game.

Since then, Webb got a gig judging the Miss USA pageant, and now this: most are assuming that her tweet means she’ll be gracing the pages of the next Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition. The magazine is notoriously secretive about its swimsuit issue, so perhaps they told her to nix the tweet. But several people saw it anyway.
