Musburger's creepy ode to A.J. McCarron's girlfriend, Katherine Webb
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.
