[UPDATE: Brent Musburger has yet to comment on this important development.]
Former NCAA standout A.J. McCarron is a legend at Alabama, helping the Crimson Tide to a national title before being drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals earlier this year.
But the 23-year-old quarterback is most famous for something he accomplished outside the lines: Winning the heart of a certain “lovely lady.”
If you need a reminder, let us introduce Katherine Webb — made famous after the aforementioned broadcaster ogled her during a game a few seasons back.
In hindsight, while completely unprofessional, it’s hard to blame him. Especially when the 25-year-old model is sending out photos like this during her honeymoon.
And the story continues …
You’d think Brent Musburger would have learned.
Remember last year, when the long-time (infamous?) broadcaster came across as a little too enamoured with Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron’s girlfriend, Katherine Webb, during ESPN’s broadcast of the national championship football game?
ESPN later apologized for Musburger’s comments, saying they “went too far.” Ya think?
Well, good ol’ Brent was back at it again during ESPN’s coverage of the Big 12 semifinal between Iowa State and Kansas Friday night.
Now, it’s not really what Musburger said (OK, it is) but more how he said it. It’s a little creepy when a 74-year-old dude looks at an attractive college coed and says “Ohhh, yeah” with more than a little lust in the tone.
Maybe it was Musburger’s last hurrah with ESPN. You know, go out with a bang, rather than a whimper.
It’s already been announced that Musburger will move to the SEC Network next season, which means he won’t be calling national games any more. (Poor Jesse Palmer, who will be his cohort, or maybe apologist, with the SEC Network. But, I digress.)
Given his propensity for commenting on young ladies in the stands, does it make any sense to have Musburger doing play-by-play for college games?
Seems like he should be moved to the Geriatric Network to call knitting bees instead.
Then, at least, his lustful comments would be more age-appropriate.
Here’s a look at Musburger’s previous, uh, work.
