Brent Musburger was too effuse in his praise of Katherine Webb says ESPN

ESPN issued an apology this afternoon for Brent Musburger’s pervy Katherine Webb comments last night. They did not however apologize for showing her incessantly during the first half. Here’s their PR man Mike Soltys with an explanation.


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.

And there you have it folks. That awkward moment when ESPN used Brent Musburger as their perv scapegoat. Way to blame the horny old guy!
