It sounds like Brent Musburger thinks ESPN overreacted when it issued an apology during the fallout from his complimentary remarks about Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron's girlfriend, Katherine Webb, during the BCS Championship game last week after saying "Whoa" and calling her "beautiful" and "lovely." For those of you who missed it, while the cameras lingered on the Miss Alabama beauty queen in the stands, the 73-year-old play-by-play man enthusiastically waxed poetic about her charms and urged young boys to become quarterbacks to get the pretty girls. On Tuesday, Musburger was asked by TMZ if he thought it was fair for ESPN to speak for him. "Individuals say what individuals say. And corporations do what corporations do," said a cordial Musburger. "Obviously, they felt it was the right thing to do." Asked if he thought what he said about Webb was inappropriate, Musburger bluntly said, "No." Musburger told TMZ he has not spoken with Webb but "would like to someday." About the scenario of running into Webb, Musburger said," I'll smile. She'll smile. And I'll wish her the best." Asked if he believes his remarks launched her burgeoning career, Musburger downplayed giving her that first 20 seconds of national fame. "She already launched it," he said.  "I don't think she needed any help from me."
