ESPN Apologizes For Going ‘Too Far’ With Miss Alabama Praise
(WSCR) If you watched last night’s BCS National Championship game, then you know Katherine Webb.
The girlfriend of Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron spent a good portion of the night on your TV, receiving praise from ESPN analyst Brent Musburger.
“Wow, I’m telling you quarterbacks: You get all the good-looking women,” Musburger said as the camera focused on Webb. “What a beautiful woman. Wow!”
Today, ESPN apologized for Musburger’s comments.
“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,” the network said in a statement. “However, we apologize that the commentary in this instance went too far and Brent understands that.”
