Musburger Talks A.J. McCarron's Girlfriend

ESPN analyst Brent Musburger creeps out A.J. McCarron's hot girlfriend Katherine Webb during the BCS National Championship.

BCS champ A.J. McCarron probably didn't appreciate the creepy comments ESPN football analyst Brent Musburger made about his hot girlfriend, Katherine Webb.

McCarron is the 22-year-old quarterback for the BCS National Champions University of Alabama and is currently dating Miss Alabama 2012, Katherine Webb.

Musburger commented about A.J. McCarron's girlfriend, Katherine Webb, when the camera panned to Webb sitting in the stadium as she cheered for her boyfriend and The University of Alabama.

USA Today reports that during the live broadcast, Musburger made pretty obnoxious comments about Webb that completely distracted him from analyzing the game.

"You see that lovely lady there, she does go to Auburn, but she's also Miss Alabama and that's A.J. McCarron's girlfriend," Musburger said. Brent continued, "You quarterbacks, you get all the good looking women. What a beautiful woman. Wow."

Fans were not impressed and immediately fired off tweets at the inappropriate comments. Steve Politi tweeted, "Brent Musburger: Making college women uncomfortable since 1978."

USA Today reports another fan, Donte Stallworth, tweeted, "And now 'AJ McCarrons' is trending number one right now…not because of his play but because of his ol lady…And Brent Musburger."

The issue here isn't that Brent Musburger's comments were overtly or explicitly offensive. They're not. However, his decision to focus — to be captivated — by A.J. McCarron's girlfriend's attractiveness during the BCS National Championship makes Musburger seem creepy and his comments inappropriate. It's likely embarrassing for ESPN and Musburger given his bad timing and apparent infatuation with Webb.

You 20 year olds kill me. Guys and girls alike. Just a bunch of diaper wearing babies offended by everything. Creepy comment by Musburger? He was complimenting Kathryn Webb for being very beautiful. Even Webb said Musberger didn't cross any lines. High Schools and colleges are and have been doing a great job of turning out little brats and whiners in America.

I am 84, been married 62 years to a woman jush as pretty as miss Webb. My wife and I both beat brent to the punch on commenting about her beauty, so did all the rest of my family and friends that were watching the gamw. By the way my wife Vicki is still beautiful and we love each other more than then we first got married.

JUST A THOUGHT, I AGREE HIS COMMENT WASN'T VULGAR. BUT CREEPY YES. THE MANS OLD ENOUGH TO BE HER GREAT GRANDPA. MUSBERGER NEEDS TO BE FORCED RETIRED, HE'S SUPPOSE TO BE COMMENTING BALL GAMES NOT HOW PRETTY QB'S GIRLFRIEND IS, NOR ABOUT BANNING GUNS. BRENT REPORT SPORTS LEAVE REAL NEWS TO REAL NEWS REPORTING. BTW I LOVE SPORTS SO NO SLAM INTENDED.

I'm a woman and I was not the least bit offended or weirded out by this Musburger guy. If we gals can stand around ogling Ryan Gosling, then why can't a guy compliment a woman on her beauty. If he said something like, "WOW! Look at those t**s!", then I'd be offended. But he just commented on how beautiful she is.

One of the most ridiculous articles I've read in years. There was absolutely nothing wrong with Brent Musberger's comments here.

Reality bites January 12, 2013 | 7:58 PM

Wow! "creepy ode"??? Seriously?!? What a completely ridiculous title. Kat Robinson... You are an idiot!

Steve January 11, 2013 | 11:53 AM

So, let me get this straight. It is perfectly okay for women to openly swoon over attractive men (they do it all the time on TV) and no one says anything. Yet, a man notices a beautiful woman sitting in the crowd at a football game and suddenly, everyone's all up in arms??? Geez! Women fawn over good looking men all the time! Will these double standards never end???

When did it become wrong for a man to compliment a beauty queen.

james virgin January 09, 2013 | 2:41 PM

give me a break u better not say ur sorry brent there is nothing wrong with what u said. even the girl was flatterd by it only tghe big fat ugly people would complain about that comment. ur good with me brent ur the best dont listen to thoses naysayers.

Adam January 09, 2013 | 8:42 AM

Wow, Brent Musberger said a beauty queen was attractive. Someone call Al Sharpton.

Jack P January 09, 2013 | 7:10 AM

Brent you were right on....refreshing during an absolutely boring game...and Kat "I'm a loser writer" Robinson who are you. A nobody with a mindless article. Whoever employees you should fire you for wasting the employers time!

Kyle January 08, 2013 | 12:20 PM

Thought the comments were great, exactly what I was thinking. He didn't exactly say he wanted to bend that chick over, he was just complimenting her. And for those who say this girl is not a "trophy," bull. She is in beauty pageants for pete's sake, she wants to be a trophy. She must be won over because there are millions of guys who would want to date her because she is attractive, and the winner definitely wants to show her off. Sure sounds like a trophy to me. I'm not saying it's right or that her beauty should take away from who she is as a person, but damn it if her physical appearance isn't trophy-like.

Phil January 08, 2013 | 11:45 AM

I've read all the comments and I just want to say unknown "writer" Kat Robinson you lose and Hall of Fame Broadcaster Brent Musburger you win.

greg glasscock January 08, 2013 | 11:39 AM

This is pure age discrimination, double standards. He's an old white man huh?

Kenny January 08, 2013 | 11:08 AM

Gimme a break!! Women spend a significant amount of their time and money in order to look beautiful. Now a broadcaster says she is beautiful beacuse she is. It wasn't creepy!! It was complimentary. Find something else to complain about.

StonehamMel January 08, 2013 | 11:05 AM

If she was a nobody, the comments might have been out of line. But for cripes sake, she's entered a beauty contest in a swimsuit, and her image was all over the internet before the game. She ***IS*** a strikingly beautiful woman, and Musberger's compliments will probably ignite the career she likely hoped for by entering the contest. If her only public prominence was ther result of winning a Rhodes or Fulbright scholarship, maybe one could fault Musberger. But did it ever occur to anyone that ESPN focused on her to begin with because Webb's PR person or someone from Alabama PR had told the crew who she is is and where she was sitting. The episode didn't begin by Musberger scanning the 80,000 people in the stands for beautiful women...though one couldn't blame him for having done that, given how boring the action on the field was

Fred K January 08, 2013 | 10:50 AM

Kat Robinson, grow up,please. People like you are why everyone feels like they have to ----- - foot around everytime they say or do something nowadays. You shouldn't be commenting on something that doesn't concern you. Miss Webb can speak for herself. She is beautiful, most guys would agree and wouldn't see any problem with Brents' comments. Your type of attitude creates thin skin in people.

JD January 08, 2013 | 10:40 AM

Not sure this can be called "embarrassing" for ESPN, given its long history of debauchery and the fact that Musburger was reacting to several looonnng takes by its cameramen.

KipNoxzema January 08, 2013 | 10:16 AM

A sports commentator points out a beautiful girlfriend of a quarterback and is called creepy. Then you have rappers saying what they do to women, calling them "-------", on MTV. You tell me which is more scary.

Aria January 08, 2013 | 9:25 AM

huh? you call it a "creepy ode" because he said it during the BCS championship game? huh? you have yet to explain WHY you thought it was "creepy". what IS creepy is the photo of Ms. Webb used in your story. a swimsuit photo? really?!?!
