Unfortunately your browser does not support IFrames. Announcer Brent Musburger does not think he did anything wrong when he gushed over the looks of Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron’s girlfriend, Katherine Webb, during the BCS National Championship Game last week. Musburger and analyst Kirk Herbstreit were practically drooling over Webb when ESPN flashed to her in the stands during the first quarter of the game. The video went viral on the Internet, and it helped Webb gain national notoriety. Though Webb says she was not offended by the remarks, ESPN apologized because they felt Musburger “went too far.” Musburer apparently disagrees. The 73-year-old broadcaster answered questions from a TMZ reporter inside a Palm Beach, Fla., airport on Tuesday. When he was asked if he felt like his comments were inappropriate, Musburger took a long pause and answered, “no.” Musburger says he has not spoken with Webb since the incident. He says he feels like she would have become famous without his comments. When asked about ESPN’s apology, Musburger indicated he felt it was done to appease critics. “Individuals say what individuals say, and corporations do what corporations do. Obviously, they felt it was the right thing for them to do.” Musburger was also part of a mini-controversy on Tuesday when many viewers thought he called a female reporter “smoking” as he was signing off from a telecast Monday night. ESPN denied that’s what he said. The post Brent Musburger doesn’t think he did anything wrong with Katherine Webb appeared first on Larry Brown Sports.
